Discovering Quiltville

A few year back I discovered Quiltville Bonnie Hunters site and became addicted to cutting up scraps. I have accumulated quite a lot of all sizes but never seemed to do much with them.

I did make one quilt Scrappy Bargello



I did a couple of her mystery's Orange Crush

and Double Delight.

These quilts didn't seem to even put a dent in all the scraps I had cut up. I think I just like organizing and putting strips in their own little boxes.

Yesterday I started another of Bonnie's patterns
Scrappy Trips Around The World

It goes really fast if you chain piece everything. The only problem I see is this quilt looks a lot like Scrappy Bargello. It uses a lot of the same fabrics. I needed to add more new ones to change the look you can still see all the ugly fabrics.
I guess I just didn't cut the pieces small enough.

Your quilts are so beautiful and don't we all love to cut our fabrics in strips and use Bonnie's patterns. Thanks for sharing!

How fun to see so many of Bonnie's patterns stitched out into gorgeous quilts here on your blog! I've become a follower and am anxious to thoroughly check out your entire blog.

Terrific projects but my eyes really got stuck on scrappy bargello and scrappy trip around the world.
