KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Nedra Bonds says that she uses images, patterns and color to capture ideas that are hard to express in words. And she teaches others to do it too.

KCUR's Susan B. Wilson stopped by a recent quilting workshop facilitated by Bonds and sponsored by the UMKC Women's Center, and talked to Bonds about how she became a quilt artist.

Nedra Bonds' next workshop is on April 9, 2011. Find more information here.
