Welcome to the first installment of Scrappy Saturday. Each Saturday we will feature one of the quilts that Bonnie Hunter showed at her trunk show at the 2017 Spring Tea on March 11, 2017. Look forward to learning a little about the quilt.
The first quilt that she showed us was the backdrop for her presentation. It featured 1.5″, 2″, 2.5″, and 3.5″ strips. These are the sizes Bonnie Hunter uses the most. There is no specific pattern for this quilt. It is a “teaching” quilt. The blocks and letters are fused onto the quilt and then they were quilted into place. You can read more about this quilt on Bonnie’s blog, Quiltville Snips & Quips:
If you would like to learn how Bonnie cuts her fabric into usable strips so that she has more time to sew and less time to sort, iron, organize, and cut, on her website go to the Tips & Techniques tab at the top of the screen. Click on it. Scroll down until you get to “Scrap Users System”.
