Bonnie Hunter Part 3

Friday was the Happily Scrappily Irish class with Bonnie Hunter.

 It was fun to see all the different ways everyone was putting their quilts together, fabric wise.  Susan sat across from me, and Sharon sat behind me, with her Featherweight and Featherweight table.  Us vintage machine girls stuck together ;)

Susan and I, at our tables
I love how Susan is making her quilt (it's RED).  She also carefully chose her center piece and surrounding red pieces in the scrappy blocks.
Susan's red blocks, see the 'cross' in the center of the scrappy blocks?
We all had fun sewing together today.

I took a hand crank to this class.

 I got several blocks put together, but, for some reason, the pictures didn't come out.  Today was Ladies Crafting day at church, so, I had Kelly take a picture with me and one of my rows.

I worked on this quilt at Ladies Crafting day, today, too.  I got lots accomplished.
this is how my rows will look

this is what rows I've done so far (lots more to do)
I got about 15-20 more scrappy blocks done today.  The alternate blocks were done before the workshop.

finished blocks, so far
This is all I have left to turn in to scrappy blocks.  The box is starting to look empty now.
what I have left to assemble
I'll meet up with Bonnie in the morning, and pick up my Singer 301A and table, that she is borrowing.  Bonnie has also gotten lots of sewing done these past few days.  You can see her posts here, here and here (so far).

I hope that everyone else is having a great week, too!


  1. It really looks like you have had a fun time with Bonnie. Loving the look of your rows so far.

  2. I'm sorry to see this coming to an end but it looks like everyone had a good time. I like the colors you're using, the blues and greens are beautiful.

  3. I love all colors and especially scrappy......but I have been wanting to make a green and blue quilt (scrappy blue and green) I am inspired to see your blocks! They are beautiful!

  4. Love this quilt and your colors. This is one I think I could make without much color control. I think it would be a great leader/ender quilt. Glad you had such a great time. Happy sewing! ~Jeanne

  5. I'm a longtime Bonnie Hunter fan so I loved seeing these posts. It looks like you all had a lot of fun. I wish I could attend one of her classes.

  6. Y'all look like a friendly and productive group. What a terrific way to spend a day, or three.

  7. That sounds like so much fun!

  8. Love the blue and green together! Sounds like a wonderful time!
    I saw a little video on Bonnie's Facebook that shows a tiny clip of you hand cranking... love it!

  9. I can't imagine how much fun you had taking one of Bonnie's classes. I love Irish chain quilts. I like your color combination. Your quilt will be beautiful.

  10. Wow you got a lot done, and I am loving the blues and greens!
