I would take it. Even if the pattern isn't to your liking, I always learn something new. You can always make a baby quilt out of what you do in class.

Take the class... for every one of her classes that I have taken there is only enough time to make (complete) maybe 4 blocks. She will tell you in the class suppies how much fabric for the whole quilt and also how much to cut to use for the class, so you don't have to commit to making the entire quilt.
She has a wealth of info that is guaranteed to make you a more precise piecer!

I enjoyed the Bonnie Hunter class that I took. Folks didn't necessarily follow the same color scheme as her quilt and maybe using your favorite colors would change your mind about the pattern.

I would go for it and make a crib sized to donate if I did not like the pattern, just for the experience. I will be in your back pocket in spirit. Lol.

One additional consideration... Bonnie is planning to begin cutting back on her exhaustive travel schedule so class opportunities will be more scarce in the future.

I think that if you choose fabrics you really like it and plan to make a smaller quilt it would be doable. But if after selecting colors / fabrics you like you are still on the fence, then pass. there are a lot of good quilt teachers and maybe it would be better to wait.

Thank you everyone for your input. Your comments about the things you learned in classes helps me to make the decision. I am going to go. If I don't I think I will keep regretting that I didn't. It is so nice to be able to come here and get feedback. I appreciate it.
