Excited !!!! - just 45 days from today

Caroline from Brussels and I are two of a bunch of lucky quilter who are going to have a workshop with - TADA - YES - drumroll - with
Bonnie Hunter from North Carolina
She is running a fabulous blog and has a GREAT website with many, many FREE patterns - especially for scrapquilt lovers. Watch the right side of the screen under "Free Scrap Quilt Patterns"
She is such a generous, clever and efficient person. She teach how to use scraps!

Caroline and I met via the dearjane community and visited each other more than once. In 2oo5 we where supposed to travel together to the DJ Retreat in the lovely Amish village Shipshewana, Indiana. Unfortunately she had serious health issues, so I had to travel on my own. Glad to meet her again!
Like another Janiac ( hi Rosemary! ) we started counting the days:
45 days until we meet near Stuttgart.

"Cathedral Stars" is the workshop we are doing together on Friday.

In the evening we'll see Bonnie's trunkshow

and to make it complete I was lucky to get a seat in "Star Struck" on Sunday, which is planned in violet and green mainly.

I played with EQ to plan ahead the size I like, no need for that big quilts here.
YES, I know both patterns are on her website for free, but I think it is much more fun to meet her in person!
happy dancing here
