Bonnie's Quilts

tncottagequilter asked over on Quiltville chat how many of Bonnie's quilts we'd made.  I can think of at least six that I've finished, not counting baby quilts.

There's the Scrappy Blue Bargello. I pulled every fabric in this quilt from the same thrift store scrap bag and put together the top in two evenings.

I made my Fun With Bricks to replace a quilt I'd made for myself and given away. I've also made three or four baby quilts using this pattern.

I started this Double Irish Chain shortly after discovering Leaders and Enders. I think it was my first attempt at a tightly controlled scrap quilt.

Weed Whacker used up most of my green scraps. I had such trouble with the quilting that I wound up trading to a friend to send to her husband overseas to get it as far away from me as humanly possible.  She didn't want to send one of her quilts because something might happen to it, and this one was definitely expendible.  Just after shipping it off, I realized that my son's absolute favorite color in the world was green, so I started collecting green scraps for another green quilt.

The first Scrappy Mountain Majesties got its start when Grandma brought me a huge plastic bin of thrift store scraps for Christmas. And the second one was made with fabric purchased just for this quilt, since it was a gift for a friend and I was trying to make something that fit her style.

This baby quilt is one of Bonnie's patterns from Quiltmaker.

And I'm working on more -- Texas Braids, Cheddar Bowties, Santa Fe String Star, Daylilies, Orca Bay, Quinn's green Trip Around the World  ....

What are you working on?
