The Bonnie Hunter Visit

Our guild was blessed to have the legendary Bonnie Hunter this month as our National Speaker.  She was here April 2012.  Back then guild days generally consisted  I took the day off to go to the guild meeting, however, no classes, just an in and out.

Retirement is nice.  This time...2 classes.  I now have 2 more UFO's on the list.  It is so worth it.

I have been active in our guild for more than 15 years.  I know many of the members.  If someone needs a helping hand (as I am younger than many-it used to be most) I will carry, hoist, drag, climb or lift for those in need.  Bonnie needed help with her quilt bags...into the building, down the stairs, and even onto the table.  And after taking classes for 2 days, I was a familiar face.  Our meeting room was the location for Vacation Bible School. We all needed to chip in and quickly turn the room around before the 165 people arrived.

 The Sunday class was Scrap Crystals.  This block is just 1/2 square triangles (with the easy angle ruler) and squares.  Color, accuracy and 96 pieces make up this block.  We had 38 ladies in the class....this was the end product of a 6 hr. class. 

My block is the darker background with purple.
The progress has been slow.   Here are the 2 blocks now completed.
Hoping to have a little Quilt Cam time with Bonnie today.  This is usually the only time I clean my area.

Happy Quilting,

Just Another Quilter 


  1. Your blocks are beautiful! What fun all of you must have had! When it's all over, I'm sure your back will be aching and ready for bed! No doubt Bonnie appreciated you help. ---"Love"

  2. I'm glad you were able to enjoy Bonie's classes this time around. Very pretty blocks! They will make a beautiful quilt.

  3. Bonnie was at our guild a few years back and she is so much fun. Of course her classes filled so fast I did not get into one. Your blocks look beautiful.

  4. I love your blocks! But 96 pieces? Yikes! (We wouldn't expect anything less from Bonnie, though, right?) But if you have two UFOs now, what's the other project?
