Bonnie was here!




Last Wednesday was the first guild meeting of the year. We had a special speaker this September (we usually don't have a speaker for the first meeting). Bonnie Hunter from North Carolina and Quiltville fame delighted a packed room of eager quilters. It was wonderful to meet her and actually see her quilts up close. I've been following Bonnie for many years. Here are a few of her quilts piled on the table after the meeting.

Bonnie taught her 'Star Struck' class on Thursday. It was a great day. I chose a variety of my repro blues, one background and a Pennsylvania cheddar for my blocks.







On Friday, Connie and I brought our finished Carolina Crossroads quilts for a photo opportunity with Bonnie. Thank you, again, Bonnie.

Jeanne - How neat that you met Bonnie. She came to our guild, but I wasn't able to go that night. Nice to have your photo with her and photos of her quilts.
