Welcome to Scrappy Saturday. Today we are taking a look at a quilt made by Bonnie Hunter called Pinwheel Fancy. Bonnie showed our group her version of Pinwheel Fancy at the 2017 Spring Tea and Trunk Show. The blue/neutral blocks are the Pinwheel Fancy blocks. The inspiration for the alternating block Bonnie found on an antique quilt in an antique mall. Blocks are set on point in this quilt.
The Pinwheel Fancy block appeared in the January/February 2015 edition of Quiltmaker Magazine
in Bonnie’s Addicted to Scraps column. The full pattern can be found in Bonnie’s latest’s book, Addicted to Scraps.
Here’s half of Pinwheel Fancy with legs… LOL.
Here’s another finished charity quilt. This quit top was in the “Charity Quilts To Be Quilted Box.” It measures 59″ x 72″. The block is called Shoo Fly. It was quilted with the pantograph pattern called “Plumage”. It needs a label.
Save the dates! Our friends at United Quilt Guild of Salem, Ohio present their 2017 quilt show. July 14, 15, and 16. For information go to:
Welcome to Scrappy Saturday. Today we take a look at the quilt that Bonnie Hunter showed us at the 2017 Spring Tea called Garden Party. What a gorgeous quilt with all those scrappy red 1″ finished squares running through it. This is a two block quilt with blocks set on point. Bonnie told us the story of one of the pink fabrics in the quilt was from the leftover scraps of the dress that she made to go on the first date with her husband. Wow! It’s so cool to have fun memories in quilts!
Garden Party is featured on the cover of May/June 2015 issue of Quiltmaker Magazine.
You can find the full pattern in the magazine. You can also get this great pattern in Bonnie Hunter’s recent book, Addicted to Scraps.
The original “cross” block for Garden Party was called Hot Cross Buns. It originally appeared in Bonnie’s Addicted to Scraps column in the November/December 2010 issue of Quiltmaker Magazine.
Here is a close-up of the quilting of Garden Party:

Phyllis is right on schedule for making her challenge quilt. She showed it to us at the business meeting in March. Her magazine page was black and white print.
Loretta was on track and said her Ben Franklin quilt was ready.
We had a challenge called the President’s Day Challenge… President’s Day was Monday, February 20, 2017… came and went. Why did we call it the President’s Day Challenge? It’s for all of you PROCRASTINATORS!!! The challenge was to find a magazine ad that gave you inspiration to make a 36″ by 36″… (or was it 45″ by 45″?)… Anywho… make a quilt somewhere in the ballpark of the above sizes and bring it to the monthly business meeting on April 25th. It will be entered into the challenge at the quilt show put on by our friends of the United Quilt Guild of Salem on July 14, 15, and 16, 2017. (Click on our Calendar of Events tab at the top of this site and click on one of the above dates for more information about the quilt show!)
Welcome to Scrappy Saturday. Today we feature Bonnie Hunter’s quilt called Box Kite. This is also the quilt that she taught us at the workshop in March, 2017. It’s a fun quilt where Krispy Cream doughnut fabric plays with the finest batiks. Bonnie taught us how fun it was to play with asymmetrical blocks.
You can find the pattern for Box Kite in Bonnie’s newest book, Addicted to Scraps (shown by Kim in the photo below.) You may also purchase this book along with Bonnie’s new ruler as a package deal. If you just want the pattern for the block you can find it in the May/June ’14 issue of Quiltmaker Magazine.
Here’s our hard-working kitchen staff photo with the Box Kite quilt:
