The Easter Bunny is not the only one coming.....

We will have a very low-key Easter celebration at our house this year, but I don't really mind.  I have a couple of very busy weeks behind me - I need rest! - and a couple of very busy weeks ahead of me too.   As my post title states, the Easter Bunny is not the only one coming to my neck of the woods.....

BONNIE HUNTER is coming to our Guild this week!!!!

Oh yes!  That Bonnie Hunter!!!!

She will be giving a lecture and teach 3 classes while she is here, and I plan to enjoy every minute possible!!!  I took a class from her a couple of years ago, and the most memorable thing I learned was not a technique or tip from this Quilt Diva..... no, I learned that Bonnie is one of the most fun, joyous, spontaneous, down-to-earth people you will ever meet!  And I'm so excited about being in her class once again :*)

Since the classes filled up pretty quickly, we had to limit how many classes our members could take.  I'm in her Wednesday class - Jared Takes a Wife.  This is Bonnie's quilt...

I am planning to make a smaller wall quilt with smaller blocks, so I have to resize all the different pieces and sections.  The basic block is called Blackford's Beauty.  I also plan to totally change the color scheme to solid brights on black, Amish style.  Here is an example of my colors....

Big difference right?  LOL!!!  
I can't wait to start on this and see how it works out in the smaller size.
I'll be blogging a lot of the fun with Bonnie, so stay tuned!

Happy Easter to all of my Blogging Family!!!  
No matter what your plans are for this lovely Easter Day, I wish you joy and happiness
and a profound sense of what the season really means.

Hugs & Blessings!


  1. Yep, She is a lot of fun! Our guild had her for a lecture and class last year! Have fun!

  2. Lucky you - she has been in our area (2hr+ drive) and classes filled before even announced, so I have missed out. Happy Easter.

  3. Oh, you lucky girl!!!! There is nothing on Bonnie's schedule close to me. BooHoo.

  4. Oh, enjoy, Teresa. I keep hoping Bonnie will come visit her brother, who lives here, but I don't think I'd better hold my breath. : )
    Wow, your version will be stunning! I will be watching for it in Bonnie's slide show.
    Have a blessed Easter!

  6. Wish I could join you for those classes! Especially like the quilt you're going to be daughter's fiance's name is Jared and I keep thinking I should make that quilt for a wedding gift! Happy Easter!

  7. Oh my, I'm jealous! I watch Bonnie's schedule but she's never come close to my neck of the woods. I can't wait o see your quilt - in her slide show and when you've got it finished, quilted and bound!
