At the beginning Bonnie talks about the Fabric Food Chain which is what the quilt behind her is about. Clever Bonnie uses a quilt to show her scrap saver system. I use it too but this really made an impression on me.

I look for ah-ha moments in quilt classes or lectures. I've often said one good suggestion can be worth the whole cost of the class. There were several ah-ha moments listening to Bonnie Hunter. Several were repeated in her classes and put to use.
It was fun to see the actual quilts from her books although, I must commend the photographers as the quilts look very much like they did in her books.
This was a fairly small quilt (compared to most of her quilts.) It was wonderful but look what she did on the back of the quilt!
WOWZER! This pineapple quilt is an eye-opener. I couldn't imagine doing a big quilt with so many pieces. But, it was fabulous.
I know many of you could tell me the name of each of these quilts but I can't. Most are in her books.
I don't want to make this a really long post so I'll save the show and tell pictures and class pictures for another post.
I succeeded 100% on my goals for the past week! Of course I knew my schedule and planned accordingly! Wait til I tell you about our adventures at the DAR Museum and Washington, DC!
