BLOGGERS' QUILT FESTIVAL - SCRAPPY

I have always been drawn to scrappy quilts, so years ago when I started following Bonnie Hunter, I thought her ideas were great.  I love going to garage sales and I started buying men's shirts to make quilts and I have made some donation quilts out of them.  The pile just wasn't going down though!

Then I heard that Bonnie Hunter was going to be speaking at the Quilters' Guild of Dallas and giving a workshop!  I wasn't a member, but I knew some members of my local guild who were and asked if I could ride with them to the next meeting.  I think it was in May that I went to the first meeting and joined the Dallas guild and signed up for Bonnie's workshop in September, because I wanted to be sure I could get in it.  This might be my last chance and I wanted to be sure I didn't miss out.

On September 7 I attended the workshop with 2 of my guild friends and had a wonderful day!  Below is a picture of Bonnie and me holding up a mystery quilt of Bonnie's that I made a few years ago.


Here is my finished "Virginia Bound" quilt.



Virginia Bound
I am entering this quilt in the scrappy category of the Blogger's Quilt Festival.  If you so desire, you can go there and vote for the quilt you like best, or even nominate one of the quilts to be the "Viewer's Choice."
