My Bonnie Patterns

Since I found Quiltville in 2007, my quilting endeavors have taken on a new life. When I found Bonnie, she had just started up the Quiltvillechat yahoo group, so my timing was perfect. I missed her Carolina Crossroads mystery; but I made up for that during the first few months of 2008. Additionally, I participated in the Orange Crush mystery and every mystery since.  Her designs push your limits to a COMPLETELY new level.  She's amazing!

At one point in 2008, I vowed that I would make at least one of each of Bonnie's patterns. I kinda giggle about it now, but slowly I think I'll keep working towards that goal. What's amazing... Bonnie HAS made at least one each of all her patterns. Duh, right!

Here is a list of what I've made so far: (most recent finish listed first)

  1. Star Struck (blue)
  2. Christmas Goose (Bonnie's "Goose in a Puddle") (quilt top only so far)
  3. Lazy Sunday (quilt top only so far) (Quiltmaker mystery)
  4. Easy Street (quilt top only so far) (8th Bonnie mystery)
  5. Jamestown Landing (quilt top only so far)
  6. Smith Mountain Morning (quilt top only so far)
  7. Scrappy Pineapple Blossoms
  8. Orca Bay (7th Bonnie mystery)

WOW you have made 19 of Bonnie's creations! You are way ahead of me. I am only working on #2 with Orca Bay. Getting ready to start on Pineapple Blossoms, trying to figure out what color to use with my purple strings I loaded up on yesterday. It isn't going to be scrappyscrappy. Kinda controlled scrappy. I have all of Bonnie's books on my wish lists. :D

I agree - Bonnie's patterns are addictive! I love her scrap users system and her patterns seem to be the first thing I head to when I just want to sit and sew for a while.

And always adding to the list! One can never have or make too many Bonnie quilts!

I am so impressed! Bonnie is my favorite designer and I vowed to have one of her quilts going at all times from now on. I have one finished and two going at the moment but the list of "want to do Bonnie quilts" is a mile long. Thanks for the inspiration.

I'm impressed. I have Cathedral Stars and Celtic Solstice in progress and also, Smith Mountain Morning from the retreat this weekend. Who woulda thought I would love those tiny pieces.

I completed my Smith Mountain Morning quilt his weekend and then realized that there were 1568 pieces in the center portion of the quilt before adding borders. I had SEW much fun! Sewing Bonnie's way is a revelation in saving time for sure! Now I'm anxious to finish Cathedral Stars and Celtic Solstice, although I'm not sure I will make CS as big as she prescribes. Maybe a full size. Who knows.
