Happy Wednesday, quilty friends!
I had a fun-filled two days this week as I attended some Bonnie Hunter workshops sponsored by the NW Quilter’s guild. I took 2 vacation days from work and got to play with fabric, meet Bonnie in person (woo hoo!), and meet some fabulous quilters as well.
On Monday, we worked on the Cathedral Stars quilt blocks. This quilt is available as a free pattern on Bonnie’s blog here. For my blocks, I wanted my brights to be really bright so I selected different batiks to use.
Here’s a picture of me (in the blue), Bonnie in the middle, and my quilt blog friend Beth of Words and Stitches who I got to meet face-to-face!
By the end of the class, I had 5 blocks completed:
I attended Bonnie’s lecture and trunk show on Monday evening. So many beautiful quilts! I took pictures and hope to create a slideshow to upload soon.
On Tuesday, we worked on the Smith Mountain Morning quilt. This pattern is from Bonnie’s book, Scraps & Shirttails II. I used pinks and grays for my colors. Two of the students brought in this “Quiltzilla” dinosaur, and I took a picture of it next to the completed quilt. So fun!
I got 3 blocks finished in this class – two star blocks and 1 log cabin block. The second picture is from my iPhone so it didn’t capture the colors too well, unfortunately.
I highly recommend attending of one Bonnie’s workshops! You’ll learn great techniques, sew some fun blocks, and meet new friends. Now, I’m back at work wishing that I was stitching.
