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.
