Lazy Sunday by Bonnie Hunter

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.

  16. Lia says:

    What a wonderful idea to organize a team for making scrapquilts! I read Bonnies blog and admire her energy, sometimes I am getting tired of reading her adventures with travelling and teaching quiltclasses. This year I plan to make a big dent in my stash by trying to buy less fabric and also use my fabric better by cutting up my leftovers in still usible portions. Bonnie is a great example! Love to see what she does next!

    • Lia says:

      Sorry, I did not mean that I am getting tired of her adventures, I just love her stories, I just mean that they are so full of energy.

    I look forward to starting some projects soon as my scrap collection is beginning to add up!

  20. Jonnie in SC says:

    Oh my goodness! Scraps are what I enjoy the MOST about quilting! I’d rather have a big box of someone’s leftover scraps than a whole bolt of new fabric!!!!!
    This book would surely be a fun way to play with my fun scraps! Thank you for the chance to win it!
