person who would love them just 
as much as I do!

was professionally longarmed with the 
"Circle Lords Egyptian Eye" template by 
my bestest Quilty buddy Kathy...you can contact her here for

Happy Friday!!


Happy Friday from Kamryn!!


Guess who I got to meet!


Bonnie Hunter!!!!  

Omg!  I felt like I was meeting a Hollywood Star, I mean she is the 
Star of Scrappy Quilting right??!!  
I don't think I have been that 
nervous in a while!!



Bonnie came to teach a Cathedral Stars workshop in Auburn, California which is
about 40 miles from where I live.  
I couldn't pass up the opportunity 
to meet the 

Scrapalicious Deliciousness QUEEN!!
So off I went!!


Heres Bonnies Cathedral Stars Quilt, its gorgeous!!  Shes got the whole kitchen
sink in there, its Awesome!



See those red lips in the photo above? LOL!!


Cute Sewing Machines too!!


See the Crab in the center? Hilarious!

Bonnie even showed us a technique while sewing my my vintage 301A "Beatrice"!



The whole thing about meeting Bonnie is that I was so worried that I wouldn't like her, as crazy as that sounds! But I can
tell you that that was not the case, she is the most amazing person, so humble and funny and personable...she was a joy to meet and I am so glad that I went!  

Stay tuned for more Bonnie Adventures!
