Bonnie's here!!

What a wonderful guild meeting we had last night.
(And I forgot my camera--rats)
Bonnie Hunter is in town and four local (sort of) guilds
are sharing her. If you haven't been to her web site, NOW IS THE TIME folks.

Her quilts are beautiful on her site, but when you
see them in person, they are spectacular!
(Warning--there are lots of exclamation points in
this post!)

I will be taking her Star Struck class on Saturday.
I haven't finished cutting my strips yet because we have
had house guests but they are leaving today so I will
be a cuttin' fool tonight while I am watching Survivor.
I had a chance to take her My Blue Heaven class
tomorrow but I shouldn't take off work and I couldn't
get strips cut for TWO classes back-to-back! I haven't
been very organized lately.

Just two teaser pics of more I bought in Lancaster.
Above is Daiwabo taupe that I hope use for a summer
shirt. The main fabric is like a cheater with different
squares. Below is fruit fabric that I will use to border
some embroidered sayings of Fruits of the Spirit.
That is my favorite Bible passage Galatians 5:22-23
so I have been collecting for it.

I have been having such a busy month and it won't be
slowing down for a few more weeks but I am itching
to get into my scraps. Bonnie is sooooo inspiring!

Until next time...

isn't she soo cool! I was impressed by her at our guild meeting on Tuesday. Can't wait to do her Scrappy Houses this weekend!

I bet you have friends in the guild that took some pictures you can use?!

What great choices in fabric, can't wait to see the final results!

Have fun at class this weekend!

I am so glad you enjoyed Bonnie's presentation! She is truly a nice person, as well as being as inspiration quilting wise. Pretty fabrics! Can't wait to see what you will do with these!

How wonderful to meet Bonnie in person and see her quilts up close. I'm sure your workshop will be a blast!! Look forward to seeing the results soon :)

Lucky you to have Bonnie in your neck of the woods!

OK Susie, you lucky girl, going to Lancanster then Bonnie. I sure wish I could have been there. Didn't know about it till it was mentioned on the guild yahoo group.

My friend in Sacremento sent me your blog and wondered if I knew you. Do I?
