What's on my Design Board and the Beaumont Guild Meeting
Last Thursday was guild at Beaumont, TX. I am a member. It is a really nice guild with a great membership. Their guest speaker was Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville.com. She is a scrappy quilter and uses many, many little pieces. She and I have dropped from the same apple tree. She has a quilt with over 10,000 pieces in it. I have one somewhere around 5000 pieces. Her pieces were smaller. I loved her line - if the fabric is still ugly, you have not cut it small enough yet. She also is a English Paper Piecer - hexagons - now you all know how I love hexagons and English Paper Piecing. She should live closer, I know we could convert some of you to little pieces and hexagons.
