Bonnie Hunter at WHQG

  Bonnie Hunter was the guest speaker at the West Houston Quilters' Guild in February.  It was so exciting to finally see and hear her in person.  She spoke on using up your scraps and explained Leaders and Enders.  She brought lots of awesome, scrappy quilts to show us.  I went home with my head full of scrappy quilts to add to my long "to do list".  The good news is, it is possible to make a scrappy quilt while working on your current project.  Instead of using that scrap of fabric to begin and end sewing on and then tossing it, I can use small squares and strips  and end up with a quilt instead.

Her website is www.quiltville.com.  She explains her scrap system and offers loads of free quilt patterns.  You will never look at your scraps the same.  Remember, those scraps are still $10-$12 a yard fabric.
