September Workshop

The ladies of the guide got together for a Military Strippers day in Sept. We did a lot of stripping (2 1/2" strips), chatting, and eating.

It may say by Heather but it is me --- Bonnie. My first blog!

Mystery Quilt Progress

Well we began the month of May with this new clue block...

And by the month of June we had tops put together...

And by July we were beginning to see some real results of beautifully pieced and quilted quilts...

This mystery was revealed as Bonnie Hunter's "Christmas Lights" quilt pattern!
