Quilt With Us

I can't remember if it will be 2 yrs or 3 in Sept that I took a class from Bonnie Hunter, but I finally finished piecing the top that I started in that workshop.  It is called Bricks in the Barnyard from her Scraps & Shirttails II book.  Her version has a braided border, but I decided to do a piano key border instead and am very pleased with how it turned out.  My friend Becky will quilt this for me in the fall.  One question though - why is it we can use this many scraps and still not see a dent in our pile?  I was able to use both 2" squares and 5" squares that I cut down to make the piano key border & my totes were still filled to the brim!

Very pretty,...Not sure I have so many different colors, I love Bonnie,,she is so talented.! I'm sure it was fun to do with a good teacher. I gave my scraps away to my girlfriend..No need for them..I love bigger pieces,,LOL! We had Augusta Cole come in from Virginia,,Oh my such pretty quilts,,but not my style. she did a trunk show and had rulers, patterns, and thread, to sell after...How crazy pretty!

Thanks Aida.  I enjoyed the workshop I took with her so if you haven't already signed up you might want to.  Her trunk show was nice as well.  I really didn't learn anything new as far as how to do something, but it was nice sewing with some of my friends.  I won some fat quarters in a drawing at her lecture too, which was nice.  That was done by the guild who sponsored her though & not Bonnie.

Love your quilt!

Bonnie Hunter will be giving a 2-day workshop at our quilt guild next year, and from the list of members who signed up, it is almost full.  We usually invite two or three known quilt teachers/artists to give workshops and lectures, and it surely beats going to a convention or quilt show to learn from them.  Of course, the workshops offered at the quilt shows are just as interesting, but you don't get the personal attention from the teacher since the classes are so full.

I did about four quilts with the 'Crayon Box' pattern from Bonnie Hunter last year, but I barely made a dent on my stash.

Thanks Mary.

Thanks Barb & Muriel.  Since I didn't use the braided border in this quilt, I plan to make a strippy quilt with braids.

That is a very pretty quilt.  You sure used a lot of colours in it.

I really like how Bonnie Hunter gives us options for scrappy quilts.  I recently finished a pioneer braid quilt from instructions on Bonnie's web site.  This one is very pretty, can't wait to see it again, quilted.  Again, I find the same problem with doing a scrappy quilt - that scrap stash just seems to multiply!

Thanks everyone.  I am already planning what to make for my next scrap quilt.  PQ, I agree about those pesky scraps multiplying.

Nice job, Janet! Lots of movement. I like the piano key border with it.
