Trunk Full Of Quilts – 2016

 Online Quilt Trunk Show 2016 | Whims And Fancies

Once again, Soma at Whims and Fancies is hosting an online trunk show. It is so much fun to look at and admire everyone's entries--be sure to visit; you will be glad you did!


Though I made many other quilts in 2016, I am proud of having completed five Bonnie Hunter quilt designs this year. Since one of them is a gift, still to be given, I can't show it, but here are the other four.


First: Last year's mystery quilt, Allietare. This was the first of Bonnie's annual mysteries that I made--it certainly won't be the last!

Second: I made Jamestown Landing from the book, String Fling. Though Bonnie's quilt features the color blue, I went with my favorite--RED!

Third: Old Tobacco Road was a mystery from 2009. I used the instructions under the "Free Patterns" tab on Bonnie's website to make this one.

And finally: I just completed Pfeffernüsse, also from String Fling.

Thanks for hosting the trunk show, Soma. Thanks, too, to all the participants in the show whose work is so beautiful and inspiring.
