Bonnie Hunter came to our guild and talked about her scrap user system. You can read more about it (here)
She also brought many of her beautiful quilts to show to us. Enjoy the show!

This quilt uses brown and blue - the two most common colors in my stash. I really like the color combination. I will have to make a brown and blue quilt!
This quilt is so beautiful, I wanted to keep snapping pictures of it over and over again. I think it will go on my bucket list.
|Bricks in the Barnyard|
I love the red border and all the spots of red in this one. Bonnie said there were several different reds in it, and she showed all the matchy-matchy people that it didn't matter. If you put enough of different ones in, it will work.
|Hawks Nest Cheddar|
She pointed out that on-point blocks have on-point borders, and straight set blocks have straight-set borders. I love the triangles in the border on this one.
Interesting point made by Bonnie on this one: The center has a darker "feel" and the lighter border lightens up the whole quilt. Even though the border is a lot of work, it really is worth it, and makes this quilt wonderful.

This quilt show will be continued on the next blog post.
