Here & there, I work on my own projects and this year I’ve been digging out UFOs to finish.  I quilted this in June but then was slow to finish the binding by hand and getting 2 quilt holders for me.

I started the blocks at a Bonnie Hunter workshop near me back in 2008.  (The pattern is free and listed on Bonnie’s website.) Soon after the workshop, I finished the blocks and had the center with sashings & cornerstones together.  This year I trimmed the leftover HSTs and made the flying geese border and added the other borders.  A non-pink quilting friend had the perfect piece of bright pink in her stash to donate to help with my borders.  Thanks!!

Bonnie’s main theme is using scraps and stash fabrics and this is my “free” quilt.  I didn’t buy anything special for this quilt.  I just pulled blacks & pinks from my fabric bins when I started the project.  It sings/screams the 1990’s but also has memories of little girl dresses, other quilt projects, and even a paintstick workshop at another guild.

I quilted it with pink thread and included feathered wreaths and funky feathers for the borders.

Even the backing of a weird pink flannel was in my stash.  My label is an extra block made at the workshop and includes Bonnie’s signature as well as mine.
