|Comments:||Just wanted to add the Canadian quilt wave :)|
|Comments:||I just make pot holders to get rid of my fabric. Many years ago I sewed for myself and daughter but stopped after starting a job that was for a two week period but ended up for 15 years.
There is so much to learn that I seem to get more confused, but I'll keep trying to use all the different designs in my little pot holders. All my stuff is given away to anyone who likes it. Pat
|Comments:||great web site just found it and will be using it much more oftenyou have donr a greay job|
|Comments:||I loved your article on scraps. It gave me also some ideas about how to store them, i.e., based on sizes, squares as well as strips.|
|Comments:||Thank you for challenging me to think outside of my normal comfort zone. I love your technique and approach to quilting. Fun, Fun, Fun!|
|Comments:||Your website has so much to look at, and well it is going to take me a while to go through all the information and great ideas. Thanks for sharing it with me. I am also a quilter, and take each quilt as am acomplishment, as I have Multiple Sclerosis, and at times my hands dong cooperate. I piece and quilt all my prizes by hand and may take me several years to complete, but aht just makes them more special.... Keep up the good work...

|Comments:||Bonnie, I was admiring these quilts and thinking that some looked familiar. When i saw Blue Ridge Beauty it hit me. I had purchased your Leaders and Enders book last summer and this quilt was a favorite of my son. (Its my next project)
Gorgeous quilts and inspiring for a newcomer to quilting. BTW I am a traditional quilter myself. ;)
|Comments:||A real nice place to visit. I enjoy your books, too.|

Welcome home from NH we're glad to have you back. We are still here in Lancaster, Pa quilting away. Since last quilt we have finished many tops. Fran has finished 4 of your Scrapy Trips. Debbie has finished Easy Street and a Little Brown Bird block that she is doing by hand. Bettie has finished 2 tops. Our other Betty is doing red work, she has one block done. I've finished 4 quilt tops if you don't count the 3 I made out of the Turning 20 pattern the every one help me unsew, than made it into you Bricks and Stepping Stones. As you can tell we've all been busy, glad to be able to watch quilt cam tonight.
All of Us.
|Comments:||Hi Bonnie, I have enjoyed reading your articles and joining in the Quiltmaker lazy Sunday mystery for the past few months. I have looked at all of your quilt patterns and ordered (and recieved) the easy angle and companion angle ruler. My question is: I have saved the family "scraps" in a controlled environment for quite some time. Unfortunatly, I foolishly whacked them up 10 or so years ago. I was just a beginner and bit off more than I could chew. I would like your opinion on which of your quilt patterns would most take advantage of your small wild geese , double triangle and 1 1/2 inch strips. Thank you so much for your time and you are such an inspiration to us all!|
|Comments:||Bonnie just discovered your scrap quilting always liked scrap quilt but you do it with tiny pieces. I did your Easy Street mystery quilt.|

|Comments:||I love your site, I have only started quilting 3 years. I don't belong to a group yet. I machine piece and hand quilt all my quilts, I've done 10 quilts. My husband is my biggest fan, we just returned from a month holiday including a cruise to the Caribiean. On our way home we stayed in Lancaster,Pa for 2 days. We went to Th Old Country Store in Intercourse. We met some wonderful people there. I plan on coming back there again. I live just outside Halifax, Nova Scotia! We don't get a lot of quilt shows here, but I did get to one they had here last year. Have you ever thought of coming here?

|Comments:||Recently discovered your site and am really enjoying and learning a lot from it.
You have solved my delimea of what to do with my scraps. I wasn't sure what to
do with them, but now have started using your saving plan. Just wanted to mention that I have also found a use from the trimmings of the trimmings!!. I save these and use them along with batting bits as stuffing for dog beds that can be donated to a local animal shelter. That really ugly fabric you have can be used for the outer cover, too. Dogs are color blind and won't mind a bit! Check with your local shelters to see if they have a need or any particulars. Mine only stipulated that it needs to be washable. Love your new Cam site, too. Really clear now compared to earlier one. Thanks, Bonnie. I love doing scrappy quilts and you are the first one I found who embraces them....
|Comments:||Really enjoy your site...scrappy quilts are my favorite.|

|Comments:||Really enjoyed your program last night at the Tri-County Quilt Guild. You have so much energy and tallent it is contagious. Your work was beautiful and the way your taught was less intimidating for the beginning quilter.
Thanks Again and travel well.
|Comments:||Browsed around for setting triangle direction and happened upon your page. It was so clear and concise. Thanks I can do anything now. Well, maybe not a mariner's compass quilt.|

|Comments:||Do you know what time your presentation is on wednesday at the quilt maker block party in Portland OR?|
|Comments:||Thanks for the tips on quilt borders. I am new at quilting and find borders a little daunting.|
|Comments:||I so enjoyed meeting you and attending the program that you did for the Silver Comet Guild. I took notes during the presentation and have just reinforced the learning by visiting your website. I have felt that there is a scrappy quilt in me from my first quilt and have been holdng on to all these little pieces of fabric. Thank you so much for some guidance on what to do with my little treasures! I have spent my morning separating and will be cutting and pressing this afternoon during our sewing group at Paula's house! I'm surprised by how much I have already, given that I am still a relatively new quilter.|
|Comments:||I love your Scrappy Bargello Quilt. It sure helped to get some use of my stach.|
|Comments:||Hi Bonnie, always look forward to your column in Quiltmaker. Only been quilting 3.5 years, but scrappy has become my middle name. Thank you for sharing your craft, maybe someday you will come closer to San Diego (El Camino Quilters Guild-Oceanside, CA) & we can see you in person!
Keep up the great work, you are a treasure, J.
|Comments:||Your coming to my quild in April and can't wait!!! So excited!!!|

|Comments:||I would just like to thank you very much for your math formula. I have been searching for hours because all the charts I found stopped at 8" blocks and I am making 9" blocks and the math from one even numbered size block to the next largest wasn't consistent - so confusing. thanks alot you have made it much easier!|
I was in the Oak Ridge workshop and we done the Pineapple Blossom quilt and I have been asked by guild to teach this at one of our meeting. Do I have your permission to do this?

|Comments:||Thanks Bonnie! I love your website. I am no longer a quilter, and now very focused on using my scraps. Whenever I meet a new quilter, I am always sure to tell them to be sure to check all that you have to offer us.

|Comments:||Hi Bonnie, I'm a daily follower of your blog and am thankful for all you do! I was wondering if you know the pattern that Joyce used to make her star quilt? I'd love to make it! Thank you and keep up your hard work and for inspiring us to. Stay scrappy! Lisa|
First time to the quilt cam because I'm following you from Belgium : 2:00pm is perfect time to do here !
|Comments:||Hi Bonnie. I am joining you from cold Kentucky. I am working on pin basting an antique snowball quilt reproduction that I started almost 10 years ago. I have a couple of questions. What size of Karen Kay Buckley scissors do you have and does your sewing machine guy work for those of us who would ship our machines to him? I live in a rural area and there's no one close that does sewing machine repair. If he does, I would appreciate contact info. Thanks so much for a great Sunday afternoon.
|Comments:||So funny your posting on the diver's helmet. My father in law was a salvage diver in WWII. Also, on a TV show about truck hauling jobs last night, not one but two Frankensteins were transported from collector to buyer. LOL!!!! Really!!|
|Comments:||I am so glad to have found your site. I have discovered in the last couple years that I am addicted to fabric, and especially scraps. When I decided to take up quilting, I scoured Etsy and Ebay for boxes of scraps, especially with novelty fabrics, so I could make my grandchildren "I spy" quilts (two boys and two girls, and they love their quilts). Now I have decided to try making bed-sized quilts, and finished a twin size a few days ago, and next project is to make a King size rag quilt. But I have tons of scraps and love the scrappy look, and I really appreciate your posting about organizing and using scraps. Thank you!|
|Comments:||Hi Bonnie iced in in Wilkesboro NC my first thought when school was cancelled today was to finish step 7 of easy street! I am thinking of starting pineapple crazy and was wondering what is your favorite paper to use for foundation piecing?|
|Comments:||Hi Bonnie, Glad to join you tonight. I'm working on tumbler blocks for Project Linus quilts. My niece is working on her Girl Scout Gold Award and has chosen Project Linus. She hopes to get 150 quilts donated after giving her presentation to various groups and the North East Crazy Quilter Guild. Of course, Cousin Jilly and I will be making quite a few!! Just need to add borders to my Easy Street. Love it! By the way, Cousin Jilly's birthday is Sunday!!!! Melody from Erie|
|Comments:||Hi Bonnie! My friend Gayle (a recent convert to Quiltville!) and I just signed up to go to Ireland with you! We are so excited! I loved seeing your "reports" from Bali - it felt like we were there with you - and now we actually WILL be! Now, if my passport will just come in time.....
Glad you had a wonderful birthday -

|Comments:||Just moved from Michigan back to Lake Jackon, TX. Am working on folding fabric as I work to put my sewing room back together. Loved taking classes from you in Lansing, MI and McKinney, TX.|
|Comments:||Happy Birthday!!!! Enjoy your day|
|Comments:||Just opened your web and love it...can you please add me
to your mailing list.
I do not do Facebook or anything...only my email.
|Comments:||Hi Bonnie, I was so excited to see your page and printed out your wonderful document. I am a fabric scrap-aholic and try to impress these values onto my quilting ministry at Wesley Memorial UMC. We get new and old fabric from our congregation and one day we received a BIG plastic zipper bag FULL of scraps galore. I sorted this treasure by color and so far have just about finished a star quilt. It's like God gives you the colors and lets you make magic with it.
We have our meeting this am and I'm taking your article for show and tell. AND I'm saving your site so that I can come back to it.
|Comments:||OK...I'm reorganizing my scraps. As much as I love seeing them, I'd rather see them in finished projects, like lap quilts and runners and things that can actually be used! Thanks for your suggestions.|

|Comments:||Tracking your calender! Hoping to take a class with you one day soon. Several of my quilt buddy's just love your designs, passion for sewing and sharing.
I'm so glad to be able to share this time quilting with you. It gives me a reason to tell BF and kids to leave me alone and I seem to get alot accomplished during quilt cam. My question for you today is What is the longest time a quilt has taken you to finish and what was the pattern? I seem to pick patterns that I work on in spurts. I have a Double Wedding ring that's been a 10 year process and now I'm starting a Grandmother's Flower garden. I'm still working on my son's Tree of Life and the blocks are coming together well. Have a great day!
|Comments:||Hi Bonnie - you have a wonderful web site! I enjoy everything I see on it.|
|Comments:||Really enjoyed your presentation today at Thumb Butte Quilt Guild meeting in Prescott! When I get back to Indiana, I'm going to hit my scrap bin and transform my fabrics! Thanks for the inspiration to do so.|
|Comments:||I'm trying to figure out the Scrappy trip around the world using a box of 2" squares cut for me by a legally blind neighbor. I have one square on my flannel board. have no idea what colors are in the box so It should be fun. Then trying to figure out set the blocks together will be another project.|
|Comments:||I just love scrappy quilts. I've been quilting now for 32 years and still love it! Thank you for your ideas, we can always use a bit of inspiration! Thank you.|
|Comments:||I am inspired to use those tiny pieces..have been throwing those away..no longer..I have ziplock bags for 2-3-4-5-6" blocks and have made several QOV quilts using those pieces.
Also sew for the local shelters..always a need there. I will be visiting you often and will pass this site on to other quilting friends..maybe they already know about it.
|Comments:||found this on one of my other sites:
One Sunday after church Mom asked her very young daughter what the lesson was about.
Her daughter answered, "Don't be scared, you'll get your quilts." Needless to say, Mom was perplexed.
Later in the day, the Pastor stopped by for tea. Mom asked him what that morning's Sunday school lesson was about.
He said, "Be not afraid, Thy comforter is coming."

When you buy new yardage fabric, do you pre-wash? I am building my stash. However, the washing and ironing is time consuming. I wonder if the newer fabrics are less likely to bleed color and shrink than in the past.
I saw your presentation at the Ann Arbor Quilt Guild and I've been a fan ever since. I'm loving quilt cam. Thanks for all you do!
I'm a "Scrap Collecter" also.
Love all your idas for using anything "leftover" from previous projects!
Don't believe in wasting fabric :)

|Comments:||Hi Bonnie - Was great seeing you in Lansing, MI
|Comments:||Just wanted to say what a great site this is! I am brand new to sewing, and have found that quilting seems to be my calling :) LOVE making quilts and have done some quite pretty ones. I bought my first sewing machine in July at the age of 35. I now spend so much time sewing and looking at sites such as this. I am glad to have found this one. Thanks for all the beautiful patterns and I already have a couple picked out that I want to try!|
|Comments:||Your blog so inspired me I have made lots of small Crumb Quilts to give away as Dolly Quilts and to the Premature Baby Unit at my local hospital. If you wish you can see them on my Flickr photos (koshka2 photostream) Thank you for the wonderful idea. As you can see I use the TINIEST scraps and re-use the trimmings to start other blocks. It is VERY addictive!|
|Comments:||I am a new convert to Quiltville!!!! I became aware of your wonderful website, books, and everything quilting at my Wise County Quilt Guild (my quilt guild in Wise County, Texas). That's the reason I go every month, there's always something to learn from my quilting sisters!! Thanks! I mean to make wonderful use of your patterns, they are so fabulous!|
|Comments:||I took both classes this past weekend (11/16-17/12)in Ann Arbor, MI. Although I am not a fan of scrappy quilts, I must admit that I had a wonderful experience. I wish you safe travels in you journeys.

|Comments:||Your lecture and workshops (I just attended inTallahassee Nov.,2012 )turned my interest in quilting around. I was on the verge of "ho hum". Now I know some new techniques to not spend hours waisting time and thread. Thank you. I had so much fun -- and you are fun to be with! Marge|
|Comments:||I was reading a book by Judith Pella about a girl in 1880 that had this quilt as her choice for a wedding.. The book was SISTERS CHOICE. I wanted to try the pattern.|
|Comments:||Hello and Congratulations on your wonderful site and fantastic ideas for quilting. I love quilting but am not as experienced as yourself and definitely not as creative.
Keep up the good work. Kindest Regards, Dianne (Australia)
I am so excited to get started with your new mystery! I had actually pulled lime green and purple to do Orca Bay, but never got started with it. Love the combination of lime, purple and turquoise! So bright so happy!!! I do not have one piece of gray in my stash. I was wondering - how would black or a soft yellow work in place of the gray? Please let me know what you think! THANK YOU SO MUCH for everything that you do for quilters all over the world!! Your endless energy is amazing!!! Can't wait to start sewing Easy Street!

|Comments:||I was in a dilemma having made two of my daughter's Trip Around the World strip quilts for their 13th birthday (I'm not a quilter and only know how to make this one) and finding myself patternless when my third daughter was expecting her quilt. You're a life saver. Your site has inspired me to try making a different kind of quilt in the future. Thanks.|

|Comments:||Hi Bonnie, thanks for all you do in our quilting world. You may remember I posted a couple of weeks ago during your quiltcam that I was traveling in Travers City and was able to do the shop hop there. We talked about how good Culvers is. While on that trip, my husband suffered a massive heart attack and eventually had quadruple by-pass surgery at the Cleveland clinic. We are home now and he is doing fine although he will be at home for six weeks while he recovers. Here and there, I've been able to catch a bit of you quiltcams. You have kept me going. If a can't sew right now at least I have been able to watch you and forget about our troubles.I miss my sewing machines but I'm so grateful to have my sweet husband still with me. You can be sure that I'll be watching whenever I can and while I won't be doing the Mystery Quilt, I'll print out the directions and enjoy all the fun you have with your quiltcam family. Thanks again for all you do. Beverly|

|Comments:||I was looking at your site for ways to keep my scraps. I telly don't know how to begin to sort them. So I think, I may just start keeping them all at 4 and 5" charms. Also keep 2 1/2" jelly roll strips. Thank you for writing up this article, it was very helpful!!|
