Quiltville Comes to Spring Green, Wisconsin

Bonnie Hunter came to town yesterday and brought a beautiful scrappy trunk show with her. I've been following her blog for a while now and couldn't wait for this day to arrive. She spoke to a full house. People came by the car load and bus load. (I'll let Bonnie tell the story about the bus on her blog.) Bonnie is a excellent lecturer. She had so many tips to share and she kept us all laughing.

You can visit Bonnie's blog Quiltville to find links to her mystery quilts. The quilt above was made by Bonnie.

And here is the same pattern made and modified by another quilter (I wish I knew her name).

I purchased a copy of Bonnie's book "Scraps and Shirttails" a few weeks ago. I've been wanting to make this quilt ever since:


This is Virginia Bound. It was my favorite until I saw this quilt:


I love these little log cabin blocks. When I first saw this quilt I thought WOW! Then I thought, "who would want to make blocks so small? Oh yeah, me, duh."

I hope all of you have a chance to hear Bonnie speak. She inspires and will change the way you think about your stash. Thanks Bonnie!
