Bonnie Hunter’s Zuchervatta

Welcome to Scrap Saturday.  Here’s Bonnie Hunter’s quilt that she calls Zuchervatta.  This quilt was part of her show in March, 2017.  An interesting fact that Bonnie told us about this quilt is that it does not have batting in it.  She used “scrim”.  Scrim is strong, course fabric chiefly used for heavy duty lining or upholstery.

Here’s the fun back of the quilt.  Use those orphan blocks!

Scrap Saturday

Here we are, another scrap Saturday.  Today we are showing you the quilt called Moth In The Window made by Bonnie Hunter.  This quilt was part of her trunk show at our 2017 Spring Tea in March.  Just look at all those gorgeous, scraplicious HST in the border of this quilt!  This pattern is in her latest book, Addicted to Scraps.

Here’s the scrappy back.  Bonnie taught us to make horizontal rows of our scraps when making a scrappy back for a nice, flat back that is easier to quilt.

Basket Charity Quilt in the Works

These basket blocks were in one of the charity quilt bags.  Our member, JoAnne, put the quilt top together.  It has been sitting in the to-be-quilted pile long enough.  Kathy made a back for it and it will be next in line to be quilted.  If you are interested in working on some of the charity quilts, give Kathy or Sue a shout!  We have several quilts in various stages.

Don’t worry, this extra length won’t be wasted.  There’s another quilt in line for a pink/blue/white pieced back in the making.  The backing needs to be at least 5″ larger ON ALL SIDES to fit nicely into the longarm…just in case it starts to shift.
