    I have all of them and all of them are my favorites.
    The only way for me to choose a favorite would be by the photos, I particularly like the shirts quilts. Certainly not something you'd see in anyone else's books.

    And I appreciate that She makes all the quilts, not a gang of friends

    I believe, when you go to her Quiltville shop, it shows what quilts are in which book. So you pretty much know what you're getting. I only have one so far, 'String Fling,' because I wanted to make Roll, Roll Cotton Boll and Orca Bay.

    Her last one String Fling is one of my favorites. I like string piecing.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    Addicted to Scraps has been a favorite but I love them all. I've made more from Leaders and Enders, all her books have great projects.

    I think I love all of them. Between seeing the ones Bonnie makes and the ones Jo Kramer makes, it makes me want to make one. I just need to pick one.

    I have several and love them all, especially the ones with the shirts. I am on a quest to eventually get them all.

    I have 3 of her books, and there is no favorite. I look on Pinterest and look up her quilts, especially the Mystery Quilts. The patterns for those are $8.00 from her website. Then look at what others have done with those patterns. They have moved one side step away from scrappy and made it a theme color. And they look just wonderful. The one I am looking at now is Allitaire. Bonnie has a red and a gold, but on Pinterest I saw it done in gray. Fab!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    None. I plan to sell them all in my Etsy shop. Too many teeny tiny pieces for me.

    I have 2 of her books & enjoy them both. I have taken one class w/her. Her quilts are wonderful but there are so many pieces in one block that I don't do them much. I have used her scrap system tho & that has helped a lot. She is one talented lady! Kathy

    I own one, I think it is the shirt one, but I am considering selling/trading because of all the tiny pieces. Love Bonnie Hunter's website and some of the quilts on there. Maybe I got the wrong book for me.

    I have Leaders and Enders, love it, spent about a month cutting scraps into various size squares. Now I have squares in the drawer next to my machine and use them for leaders and enders. It accomplishes something at the beginning and end of each strip or piece I sew for the project I am working on, doesn't waste beginning and ending thread, plus there are no thread tails all over the floor when sewing. Win, win, win!
