I am doubtlessly foolish to begin a new quilt just before Bonnie's mystery but I had signed up for a workshop in "Patches & Pinwheels" at the Golden Gese Quilt shop in Concord. As I drove in , I was kicking myself for forgetting to bring the camera. But I had a great time! We strip sewed 2" light and dark and subcut into 2" pieces to sew back together for a scrappy 16 patch. I was behind because I chose to not cut in advance of the workshop so I spent a lot of time cutting strips. But I managed to get 3 blocks done of the 16-patches.
What is hysterical is the pattern is a Bonnie K. Hunter from her website and I did not realize that when I signed up for the workshop. I suppose that I COULD have skipped the class and just made it myself from Bonnie's online instructions. But let's face it, the class got me started, got me out of the house, and gave me a chance to laugh with all the other gals there. So it was $45 well spent!
For all my grumbling about the 448 HST's for Blue Ridge Beauty, how come I had to pick out another quilt that uses over 400 of them???? Hee, hee, hee! I guess that I just love the look of them in the quilts.
