Quilter's Heaven

You will never guess who I have been hanging out with this week!  Bonnie Hunter!  Yes, Bonnie Hunter...quilter, designer, author and founder of Quiltville.com!  Monday evening Bonnie was the special guest speaker at the Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild.  (I have to rub this in a bit...I was lucky enough to be selected to help hold her quilts during the trunk show!  Yes, I got to hold and see each one of her beautiful quilts up close and in person!)  It was an amazing evening!  More quilty fun was had yesterday at a workshop where Bonnie taught us the secrets of stitching her quilt pattern, My Blue Heaven.  As you can see by the photo, I mixed my colors up a bit and my blue heaven will actually be My Scrappy Heaven once it's finished.  As for the last two days, I can honestly say that they have been my quilty heaven!

To read more about Bonnie Hunter's adventures in Wellsboro visit Quiltville's Quips & Snips and Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild.

Wonderful! I know you had a grand time! my pal Alice and I were lucky enough to go to one of Bonnie's classes a year or so ago. She makes it fun and we had a ball. Loved seeing her quilts too. Your scrappy version will be awesome!

I've heard Bonnie speak before at QuiltFest. I could listen to her for hours! How wonderful to be able to take a class from her and spend some time together!

You're so lucky, I always think of Bonnie as being the piecing queen, she's amazing.
