Last week Bonnie Hunter came to town. For those of you who don't know, she is a famous quilter who does a lot of traveling and teaching of classes. She is a very prolific quilter and makes large quilts out of zillions of tiny scraps. She is the queen of scraps. And she does make lovely quilts! She teaches how to make the small units ahead of time, and she has a special technique which she calls "Leaders and Enders."
I didn't know this, but Bonnie was born in Minnesota and attended elementary school here. Her kindergarten teacher was in the audience!
There was a Show and Tell by audience members. Most of them showed Bonnie Hunter patterns they had used. My cousin, B. showed this one from Bonnie's recent mystery, En Provence. WTG, Cuz! It's beautiful!
Bonnie is a fun and lively presenter. She taught two or three classes while here, but I did not take any of her classes. You can check out her blog and website, and lots of free patterns, at quiltville(dot)com.
