Welcome back to Quiltmaker’s Countdown to Christmas.

Today I’d like to introduce you to a friend of ours. Her name is Bonnie Hunter. She’s a quilter, designer, teacher and author.

She writes a column for Quiltmaker called Addicted to Scraps. Some of the blocks she has featured are pictured above. Each image is linked to a page where you’ll find instructions for a scrappy quilt using the block. There’s a block pattern in every regular issue of Quiltmaker (a great reason to subscribe).

Bonnie does an annual online mystery quilt, which is going on right now and is always so much fun. This year’s mystery is called Easy Street and it’s not too late to join in. It’s completely free of charge! By the way, Quiltmaker will host a Bonnie Hunter mystery in early spring 2013. Stay tuned for details!

Some of the units from the current mystery quilt called Easy Street

 

Bonnie’s blog is full of her adventures with teaching quilt classes, collecting vintage sewing machines, searching for scrappy old quilts and much more.

Bonnie’s most recent addition is something she calls QuiltCam. She started QuiltCam several months ago and if you haven’t seen it yet, I hope you’ll take a look. QuiltCam is a live event from Bonnie’s sewing room. She turns on the camera and chats with anyone who is there to listen, while she pieces or presses or cuts or whatever.

This is my computer screen when Bonnie is live on Quilt Cam.

QuiltCam has gotten to be quite popular. Whenever I have watched, there have been hundreds of others watching, too. There’s a little counter so you can actually see how many people are watching at any given moment.

As Bonnie sews, she talks about her strategies for scrap quilts. She gives tips and pointers. She tells about things she has learned. She shares her opinions on a variety of topics. Sometimes she just sews quietly—and you can hear her music playing softly in the background.

This is the view from my sewing machine over to the computer where Bonnie is live on Quilt Cam.

I sometimes turn on QuiltCam because it keeps me company while I am sewing. It’s like having a girlfriend over—only you don’t have to clean up! It’s really kind of fun. My DH just shakes his head when I say, “Bonnie’s on. I’m going to sew.”

Your family members might think it’s kind of weird when you have a companion with you in your sewing area, especially if you start answering her. But who among us ever cared about stuff like that?! Go ahead and sew with Bonnie on QuiltCam, answer her if you like, and just enjoy the company.

If the screen is dark, you'll know that Bonnie is not currently live on Quilt Cam.

To be sure you understand: QuiltCam is a live event, so if Bonnie is there and has her camera on, you’ll be able to see her at quiltville.com. If the small screen is dark, it means there is no live event going on right then.

NEWSFLASH:

Update: Bonnie has scheduled QuiltCam for 9 pm Eastern on Thursday, Dec. 20. Visit QuiltCam at 9 pm Eastern for a taste of all things Quiltville.

Bonnie usually posts on Facebook and on her blog when she is planning a QuiltCam event, so it pays to “Like” Quiltville on Facebook or to subscribe to her blog so you automatically get any updates. I would estimate that QuiltCam happens a few times each week but it depends on Bonnie’s schedule. It’s quite regular in December because she is not traveling over the holidays.

Bonnie will be featured as a keynote speaker for Quiltmaker’s Block Party in Portland, Oregon March 20–23, 2013.

Enjoy the new blocks and information from her each month in Quiltmaker… She can sure keep her followers fired up with lots of ideas and fun..

  15. Mary Ann says:

    I have been a fan of Bonnie Hunter for a few years. I have done one of her mystery quilts with a friend 1000 miles apart. It was so much fun for us to do it together. I know I won’t win but. I wanted to let Quiltmaker and Bonnie Hunter to know how I like using her patterns because of all the material I have and scraps. One thing I have learned from her is the saving of the corners of squares for use for another quilt.

  16. Sandi from MJ, TN says:

    I heard about Bonnie from my quilting groups. Everyone is buzzing about everything. Her idea about the paint chip cards is wonderful and very creative.

  17. vera says:

    Look forward to reading quiltville’s quips and snips daily and really enjoy them.Want to take a class from Bonnie the first opportunity I get. Have alot of scraps so at least I must start making some of her patterns soon …..just life interferes with quilting lately.

  21. Pat says:

    I am very familar with Bonnie Hunter and Quilt Cam. I enjoy sewing with her when ever I can. I am currenly making rectangle wrangle and it is very scrappy

  22. Diane Pickthall says:

    I love Bonnie, love her quilts, and love Quiltmaker.

  23. Judith Peckham says:

    Bonnie Hunter’s column in Quiltmaker is the reason I subscribed to this magazine initially. Of course I have found many other reasons to subscribe since. Every time quilt cam is scheduled I head downstairs to my sewing room and sew along with Bonnie. She keeps me on track and I get so much sewing done when Bonnie is keeping me company.

  24. Deezley says:

    I’m a relatively new quilter and became acquainted with Bonnie when she did a presentation at our Quilt Guild. Her spirit and enthusiasm cathected with me almost immediately, and I became a Bonnie groupie. Her values about using scraps, and fabric that is meaningful to you, reinforced my own values, since I have a lot of fabric scraps from clothes my mother made me over the years. I am currently working on one of her quilts, and would love to win her new book!

  25. Margaret K in Virginia says:

    I love Bonnie’s quilts! I am doing the Easy Street mystery right now. Would love to win a copy of String Fling!

  26. Janet P. says:

    I do know who Bonnie is! I made a Christmas mystery of hers a few years ago and read her blog! There are so many of her quilts I would like to make.

  27. Alicia says:

    I am new to Bonnie and just liked the page… can’t wait to check out the quiltcam… great idea!

  28. Sharon Hughson says:

    I’m a big Bonnie fan and I’m doing Easy Street!

  29. Sue Wagner says:

    To me, Bonnie Hunter is to quilting what Julia Childs was to cooking. She has come into our lives like a whirl wind and in a style so Bonnie she teaches us how to make quilts, how to appreciate quilts, how to see quilts and how to imagine quilts. Bonnie is the essence of good. My many thanks to her.

  30. Betty says:

    I have been following Bonnie for a long time. I have done several of her mysteries. I have also watched her on Quilt Cam. She is a joy to watch and to listen to her comments and advice.

  31. Finally, I found someone who also loves and uses vintage machine! I only found Bonnie a week ago, and have learned a lot.

  32. Gaila C says:

    I found Bonnie a few weeks ago. A member of our Quilt Guild had made a quilt using one of Bonnie’s books. I was intrigued, so I looked her up. I have been an avid follower ever since.

  33. Marlene says:

    I took one of Bonnie’s classes while she was in Lansing Michigan. It was fun. I learned some new tricks. And I enjoy reading her blog!

  34. Sharon says:

    I love Bonniis and have follower her for a few years

  35. Carol H says:

    I love the idea for the quiltcam! What a smart person she is. Also now since I’ve been quilting for about 10 years, I have amassed enough scraps for tons more quilts! I recently went through a lot of my quilt magazines and pulled out what I considered “inspiration” quilts. Many, many of them were scrap quilts!!

  36. Beverley Hernandez says:

    Thanks for the wonderful article about Bonnie! I would luv to win the book.
    Bev H.

  37. Pat Cole says:

    I am fairly new to Bonnie’s website and Quips & Snips but am totally a fan! I’ve done one of her free quilt patterns as a Christmas gift this year, with plans for many more. (The bucket list continues to grow!). Thanks for the chance to win. =)

  38. marilyn says:

    I Bonnie’s scrappy quilts. I love that she also sews on vintage machines..my Singer #15-88 treadle is my favorite for piecing and quilting..

  39. Judy Morin says:

    While I love both Quiltmaker and Bonnie Hunter, I am disappointed the clicking on the pictures of Bonnie’s block onlyt takes you to the Jack-in-the-Box page. I would like to see the Moth in the Window Quilt!

  40. Kathy says:

    I love Bonnie Hunter! I have made many of her quilts as I am a scrappy quilter too. I’m working on Easy Street right now, although I am a few steps behind with real life aka work and holidays getting in my way :0) I have 2 of Bonnie’s books and I would love to add String Fling to my collection.

  41. amy g says:

    I have been a fan of Bonnie’s for several years. I have used her patterns many times to turn some of my ugly fabric into beautiful keepsakes. She keeps on inspiring me to cut my scraps and everyone scraps from our quilting bee down to useable sizes. Thanks Bonnie, for letting me know I’m not crazy or at least not the only crazy one who saves such tiny pieces. Hip Hip Hooray for Bonnie!

  42. Pat P says:

    I have been following in The Quiltmaker for years. I started looking at her blog this fall and I try to catch her quiltcam as often as possible. I am currently Doug the mystery quilt. This is so much fun. I am learning so many new techniques from her and the other bloggers. It’s like having a special friend to share your quilt passion with. She is always having a great adventure finding a new sewing machine. I would love to get her new books. I love scraps!

  43. Eddie B says:

    Living in Australia catching up with Bonnie is a challenge! especially because I work. She is such a generous person and I love webcam. I’m really enjoying Easy Street! There are so many of us fans. I am actually an addict! Long live Bonnie!

  44. Leanne says:

    I have only just found Bonnie, and as a beginner quilter I have started on my First mystery quilt…..Easy Street. I love Bonnies choice of colour and have chosen to follow her lead exactly.

  45. Lavinia Sala says:

    While I’ve been familiar with Quiltville for a few years, I only recently discovered Bonnie’s blog and the quiltcam. What a super lady! And I’ve enjoyed Quiltmaker for many years!

  46. Christine S. says:

    I’ve been following Bonnie for some years now! It’s really fun and inspiring getting to know her better! Love to win her book!

  47. Andee in AZ says:

    I am Bonnie’s Number One Fan (I have a shirt that says so!) and I have to say that Quiltmaker is now my favorite magazine because of Bonnie’s regular columns and the occasional mystery you have. I hope it becomes an annual event! She has got me addicted to scraps for sure!

  48. Judy says:

    I did not really know anything about Bonnie Hunter except for having heard her name and knowing she was a quilter. I will have to check our her quiltcam.

  49. Donna Amos says:

    I have been following Bonnie at Quiltville for several years and love her ideas and block patterns. I have learned much from her. Her articles in Quiltmaker are always great. I just finished making some Christmas Mug Rugs using her pattern. Will be watching for her quilt cams.

  50. Reena Kaplowitz says:

    Love Bonnie Hunter and thanks for the chance to win her book!

  51. JoAnne T. says:

    I love Bonnie’s “Addicted to Scraps”! It’s the first page I turn to when a new Quiltmaker arrives. I will be taking a look at her quilt cam. How exciting! Thanks for telling us about it. Merry Christmas, all!

  52. Nancy says:

    I love Bonnie Hunter! She is an amazing lady and so talented! Thanks for sharing!

  53. Just absolutely without a doubt LOVE Bonnie and have followed for some time. She’s rekindled my interest in scrap quilts…she’s made me fall in love again with my vintage machines…she’s one of the most amazing, giving, sharing, friendly quilters out there – and more often then not when I have a chance to catch her Quilt Cam, if she happens to read my comment, she “always” asks how my Mom is doing (my dear mom is 93) – and THAT touches my heart!

  54. Christine Westbrook says:

    This is my first introduction! I am excited to get to know you Bonnie! I would love to have the opportunity to win one of your books. See you on the 20th.

  55. Marjorie Nath says:

    Thank you for the chance to win String Fling. I follow Bonnies blog and have learned quite a few things from her.

  56. Sara Schmidt says:

    Have been a fan of Bonnie’s for quite awhile. I love going places with her, and the pictures that she shares of the interesting things she sees. Scrap Savers system has made it so much easier for me to manage my fabrics. Leaders & enders has helped so much with getting out some quilts I started. I think that she is incredibly generous to share these ideas with us, along with the free patterns on her website. I am working on Easy Street too.

  57. Cheryl says:

    This is the first I’ve heard of Bonnie and quiltcam. I can’t wait to check it out.
    Happy Holidays!!

  58. suzy boyle says:

    I am also addicted to scraps…..I love Bonnie’s work.

  61. Janet E. says:

    Thanks for the chance to win a very special book!!!!!!!!

  62. Mj chavalia says:

    Bonnie’s book as many quilts that I need to make

  63. Nancy Smith says:

    Oh, I would love to win a copy of Bonnie’s new book “String Fling, Scrappy, Happy, & Loving It! I became interested in Bonnie’s tips, patterns, & books a couple of years ago. I’m so thankful for all that she shares with all of us. Like her trip to Bali, it was like being right there with her.
    Thank you & Merry Christmas

  64. Sharon says:

    I’ve followed Bonnie for years, and even had her quilt two tops I pieced. I love her scrappy patterns, and how generous she is with them. I also love her books, and wish she had published her free patterns in books. I would love to win a copy of her most recent book.

  65. beth holt says:

    I was recently introduced to Bonnies web site and the quilt cam. I have totally become hooked with Bonnie. I started quilting roughly 25 years ago, and when my mom died 20 years ago, so did my desire to quilt. I started sewing again about 3 years ago. My mom left 3 great big tote containers full of scraps, and all sizes of yardage for me to play with.
    So I have been making 2 churn dash quilts one for each of my sons out of nothing but there grandmas material. Some of this material is older than me it looks like. So it will be interesting to see it all finished. I would so enjoy receiving a copy of her latest book and the seam guide as I have a terrible time with seam allowance. to all of you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Thanks Bonnie for bringing my quilting desire to the front burner again.

  66. Lisa Marie says:

    I’ve been reading Bonnie’s column and blog for a good while. She makes amazing quilts! Someday I would like to be as organized in making scrap quilts as she is.

  67. Kristin M says:

    I have heard Bonnie’s name but don’t really follow her work. But I like what I’m seeing and I love the idea of watching her sew.

  68. Donna G says:

    Bonnie’s blog is the only one I follow daily. She is as great in person as she seems on her blog. I am trying to implement her scrap saver philosophy.

  69. Virginia Hill says:

    Bonnie has renewed my interest in scrap quilting. I would love to have her latest book. I am a subscriber to Quiltmaker magazine and have so many quilts I want to make and each issue gets the brain matter designing a new quilt for someone. Thanks for the opportunity to express my gratitude to Bonnie and to Quiltmaker magazine.

  70. Janet says:

    I follow Bonnie’s blog and love Quilt Cam. It is amazing the tips you learn by watching her sew. Thanks for the give away. Would love to win this book.

Well worth the cost of subscription.

  71. Carol Leak says:

    I am a long time Bonnie fan, love everything she does, guess I’m a groupie, too! I’ve always loved scrappy quilts, and she just fits right in there with all my likes, and gives so much of herself to help us in our quilting endeavors, everyone loves Bonnie!

  72. Ann G. says:

    Bonnie is great!! I love the Quilt-Cam–she comes on just as I’m wrapping up work and it’s a great way to start my evening.

  73. Sandra B says:

    I’ve been making ‘Bonnie Quilts’ for several years. I love her Leaders/Enders and the scrapsaver system – it has boosted my block and quilt production greatly. I don’t have the String Fling book yet and would love the chance to win it. Quiltcam is a blast – hub just shakes his head LOL.

  74. Dianna says:

    I discovered quiltville a long time ago for the wonderful free patterns. Am trying to organize my scraps but will never come close to her system. Really enjoy her blog

    Bonnie is one of those people who shares and and gives 100% and more of her talents. I have learned how to manage my scrapes using her system to organize the stash.

I love her pattern books. Joyce

    My favorite quilt is a quilt I made from one of her Shirt Tales books. I follow her blog because it is fun and interesting and filled with great ideas for scraps. Im not much on buying large quantities of any one fabric so scrap quilts and sampler quilts are my favorite to make. I am now addicted to her scrappy ideas. Luv them!

    I love Bonnie and am working on Easy Street, although I’m not caught up. I have two of her books, but would love the new one!
