I'm not yet a member of a quilt guild and have always wondered what goes on in the meetings and what I might be missing. So when I noticed from a blog post that Bonnie Hunter was going to be speaking at a local guild meeting, I made plans to attend.
This photo is from Bonine's Instagram feed - I'm in the very back row - the lady in the red shirt on the right hand side of the photo.
She was really fun to listen to and the room was packed. She shared many of her quilts and talked a lot about leaders and enders. (Not the best photo but I was in the way back!)
The most fun was to see all these quilts that I've seen pictures of on her blog and to see them in person. At the end of her talk, you could go up and see the quilts first hand - such fun.
The Friday after Thanksgiving each year Bonnie launches a mystery quilt - clues each week. This year's mystery is called Allietare!
I've got my fabric ready - the red is FigTree Farmhouse, the gold is Hello Fall, the black is Lakeside Gatherings Beacon Titanium, gray is Lakeside Gatherings Mini Anchors Dock.
This will be my third time doing her mystery quilts - here are the previous quilts:
Grand Illusions - 2014 - (the leftover fabric from this quilt is what I am using to make my Farmer's Wife quilt!)
Celtic Soltice (2013)
Easy Street (2012). This one was gifted to my sister in law when she turned 50.
Are you planning on joining in for this years mystery?
