This quilt is called Pineapple Crazy. It was made by Bonnie Hunter. She amazed the group at the 2017 Spring Tea with it. The pattern can be found in Bonnie’s book, String Fling.
This Big Basket Charity Quilt was completed today (all except the label.) This quilt measures 100.5″ wide by 93.5″ long.
Here’s the simple pieced back that used up a few odds and ends fabric. The polyester batting really shows off the grooves in the quilting. It will be a fine charity quilt.

Flo’s Challenge quilt — Louise won! Congrats! Blocks nicely set on point.
Louise’s scrap therapy quilt (Railroad Crossing block directions are on website.)
Louise’s Fiesta kit quilt. Aren’t these colors beautiful?
Beth’s fun Independence Day quilt — embroidered in the white areas are the words to the Pledge of Allegiance! Awesome, Beth!
Another patriotic quilt by Beth. What fun borders!
Sylvia’s D9P quilt that she made blocks from the 2016 Christmas D9P swap. She quilted it herself at the Hen House!
Sandy’s beautiful sampler quilt in Civil War reproduction fabrics. This was a block-of-the month quilt from AnnaLouisa’s Quilt Shop in Louisville.
Rita’s fun fabric that she found. She is quilting the design on it and then painting the color on it. It will be a jacket. Can’t wait to see that!
Sue’s embroidered quilt. She carried these blocks around in Ziploc bags when the kids were young. Now she’s putting them together in quilts.
Rita’s truck. Isn’t it artsy?
Kathy’s D9P from the 2016 Christmas block swap. It looks a lot different without the sashing and cornerstones that Sylvia did, but it’s the same block.
Diane’s banner that will be hanging at The Children’s Network in Canton.
Sue’s banner that will also be displayed at The Children’s Network in Canton.

Welcome to Scrap Saturday. Today we are featuring the quilt that Bonnie Hunter calls Winston Ways. It was part of her trunk show in March, 2017. The pattern for this quilt can be found in Bonnie’s book, More Adventures With Leaders & Enders.
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!
Welcome to Scrap Saturday. This is Bonnie Hunter’s quilt Wild ‘N Goosey. Look at all those tiny scraps that Bonnie saved and used in this quilt! The blocks for these units are paper pieced.
The original release of this block showed up in Quiltmaker Magazine (the May/June 2013 Issue). The pattern for the full quilt is in Bonnie Hunter’s book, String Fling.
