Quiltville at the Museum

    On September 19th, I took a class at the Buffalo Niagara Heritage Museum sponsored by the Amherst Quilt Guild with the indomitable Bonnie Hunter from Quiltsville.  I had been waiting for the day to meet her and learn from her. She has taught me a lot through her blog. I owe my love for vintage machines, treadles, my sewing mates table, crumbs, scrap savers system, leaders and enders, and all the assorted knowledge from her blog and quiltcam. I took the Crumb piecing class. She taught basic crumb piecing, maverick stars, crumb hearts, letters by piecing, and string quilt blocks. She was so friendly, enthusiastic, and generous. My sister in laws and I took the class together. Bonnie put us on her site, we are down aways, three from the bottom.http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2014/09/galaxy-gram-lunch-break-crumbs-class.htmlcrumb class

Well, today it was vacuuming the crumb-ettes as I have been treadling a lot of made fabric. Makes lots of mess. I guess I need a taller waste basket or something.

Wonderful photo of you! I love your 4.5-inch crumb blocks. I attended a Bonnie Hunter lecture and trunk show about a year ago. She was fantastic!

She is just as sincere as she is on Quilt Cam. Thanks for the nice comment. We had a blast!
