    Bonnie Hunter's new scrap quilt pattern

    Have you seen Wanderlust? It's a stunning scrap quilt. It's on my list, my very long list. LOL

    WOW !! Go for it if you have the time to get it done. Looks like Sawtooth Star and Ocean Waves collided in mid air. Good Luck.

    I bought this magazine earlier in the week and fell in love with this one! I am making "kits" for sewing later, and I am going to kit this one from my stash....one block at a time so the colors all work. That isn't the way she says to do the sewing but it makes sense to me. If I package each block's pieces in a sandwich size Ziploc......I think it will work! My lack of variety in darks and lights may be a problem though.....

    I love that quilt also! Geez, I need to finish some projects, but I will set that aside as a possible reward for myself.

    That's a great idea! Like your own BOM.

    Does anyone know if the pieces to this stunning quilt can be cut on the Accuquilt Go? In other words, does anyone know the sizes of the triangles and other pieces? I'm wondering if I have dies for them, and if so, I'm interested! I'm not asking for the pattern, just wonder if anyone knows the sizes of the triangles. The last Bonnie Hunter quilt I cut with a rotary cutter but by hand - for a class she taught, BTW - took 40 hours to cut. I'm not doing that again anytime soon!

    I love her quilts.

    Cricket, you might be able to send a email to Quiltmaker asking about the sizes. There is a link if you have questions. I just went to the site and checked when I saw the link.

    Sorry, but there is so much going on in this one, it jars my sensibilities, not to mention my eyesight. Must be an old-age thing.

    The 7/8 cutting sizes for the squares are mostly making the HST. Some are rectangles. These are the basic sizes on the cutting chart:
    2 7/8, 2 , 1 7/8, 4 , 5, 3 , 1 7/8, 6 1/2, 6 7/8

    I exported the picture of the quilt into EQ7 and changed the colors. WOW, It's amazing how it looks not scrappy. This is definitely one I will be making. Also on Quiltville Studio Facebook Group page there are many who have made this when she was testing it out at a class before publication. Their blocks are amazing the color choices they used.

    I love all of you ambitious ladies but her quilts are just too busy for me...I prefer quilts that give my eye a spot to rest now and then She was a member of a long ago online group I was in, and was a special gal even then, I think its so cool how far she has come!

    That is one awesome quilt. After making one scrappy Storm at Sea I think I can step it up a notch and try this one with the stars in the center. It would be very similar and I have lots of experience doing the triangles.

    Thanks for sharing the link.
