Star Struck with Bonnie Hunter!

Sunday's sky was clear as we began our second day of quilting with Bonnie!
This was the view from where class was held ... gorgeous weather for Bonnie's last day in our remote corner of the planet.
We began class with enthusiasm that matched Bonnie's!  It is obvious that she loves to teach and pass along her talent!
This is a close up picture of Bonnie's Cathedral Stars quilt that we worked on!  We all got to work ... giggled ... ate ... and sewed ... we are a very industrious group of women!













Bonnie shared many techniques and tips that improved the accuracy of our piecing!
She knows how to have fun and has a terrific sense of humor!
She breaks the process down into simple steps which prevents the quilt from becoming overwhelming!  By mid afternoon everyone had made great progress!











We are all so pleased with our "Quiltville" event!  Bonnie is such an amazing talent, but more importantly she is a "down to earth" person who loves to share her passion!
Spending the weekend with a "Quilt Rock Star" like Bonnie was a first for our guild!  It was a thrill to have her here ... and definitely worth the two year wait!  She left us all empowered and inspired!  A wonderful weekend filled with quilting memories was had by all!
