I have had so much fun reading all of your comments both here on this blog and Terri's blog. I love the fact that so many of you made Quilt In A Day log cabin as your first quilt. It made me think....I don't even think I have ever done a traditional log cabin quilt! That's a shame! I'm putting it on my bucket list for sure. Some of you made me choke up with all the wonderful things you had to say about me and totally made my day....thank you, thank you, thank you! This is why I do what I do and will keep going for at least 10 more years:)
The winner of yesterday's book here on this blog was....
Congrats, I will be in touch for your snail mail address. I appreciate all of you that shared your comments and time with me
We are going to let Terri's giveaway marinate until the end of the hop and then we will be announcing all the guest blog winners on August 15th.
On to today's guest blogger....
I am sure I don't have to introduce the fabulous Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville fame to anyone.
I "officially" met Bonnie when we were both teaching at Quiltmaker's Block Party in Portland in March (I had seen her in passing at shows and oogled over her superstar talent before). It was love at first sight...marriage made in heaven...instant friendship.....you get the picture:) Boy did we have some great laughs and fun together. I can't wait to be able to hang out with her again, we live too far away right now, even though she is a Minnesota girl. We have similar personalities and take life by the horns kind of attitute:) We both love scrappiness in our quilts, although she takes it to a whole other level, ha ha:)
Please go visit Bonnie's accomplished blog today, she has some goodies to give you if you comment on her post today.
You can win a copy of my Just My Style book right here by commenting on this post today. Random winner will be drawn at midnight.
Just answer this question: Do you like scrappy quilts or prefer well coordinated quilts using just a few fabrics?
....Oh, and if your answer is Scrappy, do you like "Organized Scrappy" (you know who you are:-) or can you just pull fabric from a pile and sew it on without thinking about it?
I knew that's when it got tricky:)
Myself, I love scrappiness. (not sure if this is a word, but hey I blame english being my second language if it isn't) You can usually find a scrappy element in most of my quilts. However, that doesn't mean I like controlled, 3 fabric quilts any less. I like them too and sometimes that's what my head wants to do so I just let it.
Most of the quilts in the book have a scrappy element to them because most of them call for fat quarters. The book has 7 quilts but each one is made two different ways. One version is traditional and the other more modern so it is fun to see the difference, and which version people like. Myself....I love them all! I know...It's very hard to put me in a box, I will find a way to get out of it:)
Here is an example from the book:
But I still love both:)
