Bonnie Hunter Class on Talkin Turkey

Bonnie Hunter visited our guild and taught a class on her quilt, Talkin Turkey.





She is so nice, and just as I had pictured her, very down to earth, and real.  I felt like I already knew her! She de-boned a shirt for us:


My friend JoAnne McPherson (Patriotic Quilter blog) and I sat together. JoAnne is so creative, and I really like her blog.  Please visit her blog - she's a great quilter! 


JoAnne thought about the red string squares we were making in the class, and came up with the perfect luncheon potluck dish.  Doesn't her beautiful jello mimic the layers of red fabric in Talkin Turkey's string piecing?



So clever!  We had a great time sewing together.  Here's a picture of Bonnie's Talkin Turkey, from the front and also the beautiful plaid back which shows the quilting:



Just lovely!  My next post will show Bonnie's quilts that she brought to our guild meeting.

I'm connecting with Design Wall Mondays (Here)  to see what everyone else is doing. I have Talkin Turkey on my design wall this week:

Oh, I love that picture of me! Could you text it to me? Thanks for mentioning me, too. I didn't think to get a picture of the awesome backing of Talkin Turkey, either. Great post. As I read it, I got excited all over again.

I hope I have the chance to take a class with Bonnie one day soon.
Your Talkin' Turkey blocks are looking great, especially with that red & white check in the sashing.

Love the gingham sashing. It's going to be a beautiful quilt.

That quilt is definitely going on my bucket list. I especially like your checked sashing; it looks so fresh.
