Woohoo...today was a great workshop with Bonnie Hunter. She's exactly what I thought she would like be from reading her blog for years. She's full of energy, but down to earth at the same time. She was a great teacher and I loved that she spent time with each person around the room throughout the day.
The day started out with a demo of how to construct the block we were using for the quilt, "Oklahoma Backroads." The block above is the only block you need...you just need 100 or so for your quilt. :P No special tools needed for this project, but still some great tips were shared to help make the construction easier.
She also showed us how to "do-bone" a shirt. It's amazing how much nice cotton fabric you can get out of a shirt! Who knew??
I took FOUR of my "Bonnie" quilts to show and tell. Someone was sweet enough to grab my camera and get a picture for me of this one. I also took my Roll Roll Cotton Boll, Orca Bay, and Scrappy Sister's Choice.
I was able to completely assemble 8 blocks...and the parts for a few more. I know I'm going to love this one too!!
This is a few of the girls from our sewing group with Bonnie. I'm in the center in the black shirt. :)
It was just a great day....lots of laughs and a full day of sewing. What could be better? I was so excited to meet Bonnie...I've been a big fan for years. And look, she even autographed my book. :)
Stay tuned for more...tomorrow is a trunk show and her lecture on Leaders and Enders. Tuesday I get to take another workshop!! Yay!
