Daily Inspirations and Adventures

Pat’s Virginia Bound, a Bonnie Hunter pattern

leave a comment »

This is the second time this quilt has been featured on our blog.  The first time was here https://bevanddara.com/2011/12/13/color-makes-a-difference/  .

Pat made a very large (98″ x 98″) quilt using Bonnie Hunter’s method of scrap quilting.  For this technique, one uses all the pieces of fabric that are too big to throw out, even though one should.  Bonnie’s suggestion of what fabric to use for the “light-colored” part of the block is interesting-anything with a background lighter than a brown paper bag is okay.  It was fun to quilt this because of the variety of subjects featured in the fabric.  You might not be able to see, but there is corn, Christmas fabric, Halloween subjects, flowers, plaids, etc. in the fabric strips.

Pat loves fall colors and sunflowers, so I quilted orange sunflowers and swirls into the light-colored blocks.

 Pat chose a blue that was the perfect zinger for the inner border.  I quilted a swirly, leafy pattern in the outer border that was fun to quilt.

This quilt might have to make a third blog appearance after Pat sews the binding to the quilt…wonder what color it will be.
