Bonnie Hunter class preparations
My preparations are almost completed for a class with Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville, in south Denver. The all-day class is sponsored by Wooden Spools quilt shop. I remember how disorganized I am at a class so I cut pieces ahead of time. Well, then I was tempted to sew "just one" but ended up with 2 Jacob's Ladder, and one Rosebud. Jacob's Ladder had always been a favorite. I have a 3rd set of blocks cut for Union Square but not shown here -- better save something for the class!. Believe me, I have a LOT of plaids! I LOVE this Rosebud -- normally it ends up looking feminine, but wowser, plaids make a big difference! We're making the quilt Bonnie calls "Shirttails." I'm planning to set the blocks in a Row format, and each row will using the same fabrics.
I am traveling with a friend who knows how to navigate Denver traffic. Denver is about 4 1/2 hours from my home in western Nebraska, but we'll have a lovely visit during the drive.
Thanks Jody, for that lovely soft blue plaid in the Rosebud block - it sings!
My Show and Tell will be my favorite Pineapple Blossom that I started in Casper, WY, also taught by Bonnie 3-4 years ago.
