  1. I just this week saw an older show of Georgia Bonesteel’s on our local PBS station. She was in Texas with this beautiful and talented long arm quilter. Today I got an email from that quilter. Ms. Taylor you are still very very beautiful and very very talented. Congratulations on your successes in your life, especially the Lifetime Achievement Award. You so deserved it!
