    Anyone made Bonnie Hunter's Double Delight quilt?

    For reasons too long to post, I have to have this quilt made by the end of Sept. I have been cutting and sewing for three days and still on step 2. Any quilt that has 480 hst in one step has no choice but be beautiful. Here a pic of the quilt: http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2005/...ht-part-7.html . I'm using the same color choices.
    Got fabric?

    I think all Bonnie's quilts are gorgeous. I'm in the process of making two right now. Can't wait to see yours.

    Her quilts are great because of the variety of the fabrics and scraps she puts in them. I guess I am too lazy to piece all those individual half square triangles. I was already to do the "Roll, roll cotton boll" until the instructions said something like...do 400 half share triangles and I bailed. Your quilt will look super when you get it done and I applaud your diligence!!!

    done by the end of September, including quilting????????????? You will need to sleep, eat, maybe cook (or at least find time to call for delivery), a couple of showers, maybe some laundry, and oh, do you work for a living?? YIKES!!!!!! I suggest you phone a friend.

    I don't work and DH doesn't require a shadow and knows to eat when he's hungry. LOL. I'll machine quilt it a simple cross hatch pattern. Breaks over, time to cut and sew some more.

    I did her mystery quilt last fall, Orca Bay. She has crazy small pieces.....but the end result gave me the best feeling and it is the most beautiful quilt. It will be awhile before I tackle another one of her patterns.
    Enjoy your day,

    This quote from her website about this gorgeous quilt is the exact reason why I float quilts on point; I can then trim to a more suitable size to make pieced borders if I wish. Among many other reasons!

    The quilt is great, by the way!

    "There is something that happens when you put a quilt on point. The dimensions, which start out even, since everything is built on a 9" finished block size..becomes WIERD. The dimensions are 63 3/4" X 76 1/4". By itself, that isn't a problem. But if you want to have a nice little pieced border that marches around the quilt, you are going to have to find a common denominator for these units, and that means having to add spacers to the top and bottom of the quilt that are a different measurement than what you add to the sides of the quilt to give you the right size."

    I love her patterns, too. "Chunky Churndash" is right at the top of my to-do list. Please post pix of yours when you're done, OK? Inquiring minds...

    I have made it in sligtly darker color tones and various antique rose fabrics for setting triangles. It was my first "real" quilt, came out beautiful, too .I also cross hatch quilted as I had not yet tried FMQ By the end of Sept.? I think it's quite do-able as your continous piecing makes it pretty quick, assembling mine too the longest as I had no design wall and had to make room on the floor.

    Bonnie is amazing and she is going to be teaching at the Bluegrass Quilt Festival on Sept 27, 28, 29 and 30th...its in Shepherdsville KY.(only 20 miles from us) So glad to have such a great inspirational teacher at a local show. Can't wait to go... hope to get in to one of her classes...last year my wife won a new Bernina at this show....more info is listed at Bluegrassquiltfestive.com
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    I made this quilt and it is stunning when done... I gave it away to a darling couple from our RV park where we go in the winter. Last year was the last year that they will be coming. Once you get all the hst sew it goes together pretty fast. Lots of chain piecing.. Good luck. I did not get pictures of mine, but I did use the same colors Bonnie suggested and it really came out pretty... I think it was one of her mystery quilts, can't remember now

    Well, you DO have a lot of sewing to do in a fairly short time I'm hoping for some secret sewing fairies while you sleep! Keep plugging away - it's going to be beautiful!!!
