Many of you are familiar with our friend and columnist Bonnie Hunter of quiltville.com.
She’s in every issue of Quiltmaker with a new scrappy block and a column called Addicted to Scraps. We’ve picked up a number of subscribers because of this column—people love Bonnie’s enthusiasm and her dogged determination to use up fabric she already owns.
Bonnie takes ho-hum and sometimes even ugly fabrics and somehow sprinkles them with fairy dust, and they become showstoppers. It’s a beautiful thing.
Not long ago we were brainstorming for new ideas, and we realized that we could do more with the Addicted to Scraps block designs. When we asked for new Scrap Squad applications, we had many more than we could use in the six coveted Scrap Squad spots.
That’s when an idea was born: Could we form a whole new team of readers who would take Bonnie’s Addicted to Scraps block designs and make scrappy quilts from them?
Why yes! We could! And we did!
I’m pleased to present you with this new team called QM Scrap Addicts. They are bursting with excitement about this new project. They’re starting to sew already, and soon we’ll have quilts to share with you. The inspiration around here is going to ROCK!
Please welcome to QM Scrap Addicts:
• Jacquie Campbell from Enid, Oklahoma
• Barbara Johnson from Verona, Pennsylvania
• Melva Nolan from Trinidad, Colorado
• Doris Rice from Brownwood, Texas
• June Sinfield from Port Elgin, Ontario
• Sheri Wonderling from Brookville, Pennsylvania
• Debbie Yarbrough from Sugar Hill, Georgia
• Donna Cook from Plainville, Connecticut
Now let’s celebrate this new project with a giveaway.
I’ll sort through my own personal scrap bin and send a nice pile of usable scraps plus a copy of Quiltmaker’s Devoted to Scraps book to a lucky winner who leaves a comment before midnight on Sunday, Feb. 8.
We’ll choose a winner randomly and announce it here next week.
Arlanna is the winner of the Scrap Addicts giveaway! Arlanna has been notified by email.
