|Me... in the back row on the left, Bonnie is in the second row, just up and to the left of the big red star block.|
I have to say here that I am so incredibly star struck to be in the company of quilt professionals. It has been my experience that these women are much like all of us, women who are wives and mothers and lovers of all things connected to quilts and quilting. Bonnie has found her place in the quilting world in a way that most others have not. She is seriously BIG TIME, with features in magazines and a killer website, Quiltville, where she generously shares her free patterns with all of us. She travels all over the country leading workshops for women who are just like me. She featured our workshop on her blog Quiltville .
As I have mentioned here on my blog previously, I am compelled to make things be "Matchy, Matchy". I know that I need to just let go and channel my inner "scrappiness", but it's not easy for me. So a "Toss Your Cares to the Wind" sort of a color scheme (with a big bunch of restrictions.... no reds, no blacks...) is what I decided to use for my Scrappy Spider Web quilt.

Each and every one of my guild mates, all using the very same pattern, made a remarkably different quilt. That's the wonder of this kind of workshop. We all use the same pattern but our end products are completely original.
Thank you Bonnie, for being a wonderful instructor and such a fine quilting sister! We hope that we see you along the way again.
