Awhile back I was lucky enough to win a giveaway on Anna's blog Woolie Mammoth. A local quilt shop in Bend, Oregon Sew Many Quilts was very generous in allowing her to pick out any book she wanted to giveaway on her blog, Now we all know how tight the economy is and every penny counts so it's very much appreciated. This is the sweet book I received and I look forward to getting a start on some Christmas projects, thanks Anna and Sew Many Quilts.

Well, I just got back from a quick trip to attend Bonnie Hunter's Trunk show and Lecture in Portland, Oregon and it was a great time. Bonnie has three days of classes at the Northwest Quilt Guild with today being her last but what we went for was her lecture and Trunk show on Monday night. We did stay in the same hotel as Bonnie so Monday morning as we came down for breakfast Bonnie was there also trying to grab a quick breakfast before her ride to the class showed up. Hubby Dale said Hi to Bonnie and she stopped and looked at him and laughed, then we knew she recognized us. We had given Bonnie, Dave, her Hubby along with Myron and Pamela (Dave's brother and sister-in-law) a tour of Victoria last year when her Alaskan Cruise ship docked for the day in Victoria. After a quick hug she finished her brekkie and headed off to teach some lucky gals the Bonnie Hunter way of quilting.
Here are some pictures of what was an informative and entertaining evening that night.

A lady was perusing some of Bonnie's quilts so took a few pictures while she flipped the tops back. I tend not to touch anyone else's quilts, even though Bonnie used them as part of her presentation but I don't have a problem of taking pictures when the chance arises.
That is how tiny these strips are, just look at my fingers...yikes.
