I had the opportunity to take a class from Bonnie Hunter last week in Holton, Kansas. She taught her techniques for her quilt Smith Mountain Morning. It was a great class. Bonnie is a super person with high energy and lots of great ideas.
So this week I am working on my version of Smith Mountain Morning. I wanted to do mine as a Christmas quilt therefore all the greens and reds. I already had a great selection left over from last year when I did Judy Laquidara's Walk In The Forest quilt from her book Weekend Quilts. So I just added a few more greens and reds and this is how it is turning out.
These blocks are the three blocks that I got done in the class and we were busy the entire time. It was a lot of instruction using the rulers Bonnie suggests you use to make the block easier in the long run. She uses the Easy Angle, Tri Tool, Rec Tool and the Companion Angle rulers. And they do work. It is worth the effort to figure it out.
After Bonnie's trunk show she asked if anyone had brought quilts made from her patterns and three of us had. Here is Bonnie and I showing my Roll Roll Cotton Bowl. It was so much fun to be a part of her trunk show. I also showed my version of Bonnie's Blue Ridge Beauty. You can see a picture of that on a previous post.
