Guest Speaker at Guild

We are having a guest speaker at guild tomorrow. Her name is Bonnie Hunter and she is author of Scraps & Shirttails. I will be taking her workshop on wednesday. This is the block we will be making. I made these to see how I liked it. I like the design but there are alot of seams. When they are all sewn together there will be bulk. These are 4 71/2 inch blocks. This is more homespun fabric that I have had and I am trying to use it up. I am sharing with my friend so we both should be able to get a quilt top out of it.
There is also a link to Bonnie for the Australian quilts. She has a wonky star and calls it a maverick star. Her website is full of goodies so I hope you check it out. Also check out her In The Pink Dear Jane. It is awesome.

Wow, I like how it's lights and darks mixed together. Can't wait to see more!

I'm intriqued with this block.
That's the thing about quilts, a simple block, an interesting quilt.
Thanks for the inspiration.
