Essential Triangle Tool & Wanderlust!

Wanderlust 450x300
Happy FRIDAY everyone!

I have been super scrambled busy as you know, and I want to thank you all for being so patient with me.  I’ll have help this weekend.  The Hubster returns from Boston today and I have Jeff off of work today to help me get more out faster.  It’s ALL GOOD!

I’ve been asked if I have a video for how to use the Essential Triangle Tool and I can tell you that videos from C&T are being filmed while I’m in Houston in just a couple weeks.  Those will air on youtube and on their website and on mine.  SO those are coming.

If you want IN-DEPTH ins and outs of working with the tool, why not take my
Wanderlust Quilt with Bonnie Hunter (Scrap Quilting Basics from Beginning to Binding!) course with Craft U??

Since we will be using this tool for this year’s mystery, having the workshop in your CraftU library for easy access would be just the ticket for watching when you want, refreshing techniques when you need them and honing up some skills.  Craft U has now gone ALL STREAMING so wherever you have an internet connection you can access my courses.  They are yours forever, and you get interaction through the message boards, sharing with other students for one year from purchase!

PERFECT!

Not only will you learn to use the ruler and various techniques, you’ll also have the instruction for making Wanderlust from my new Addicted to Scraps Book.

Many of these same techniques and more MAY be used in one way or another during our mystery – you’ll be ready!



Course Description:
In this online course, world class scrap quilter Bonnie Hunter takes you step-by-step through the process of creating her Wanderlust quilt. Scrappy Stars explode with color and come together easily in a variety of methods for simple unit construction.

Learn a variety of techniques and applications for making flying geese and half square triangles in multiple sizes and watch them come together in the stunning Wanderlust Quilt, all from your scrap stash!
Bonnie will share her new Essential Triangle Tool and Bonus Buddy ruler. She will share her techniques for using these rulers and show you how these tools can help make your scrap quilting a complete joy!
The Wanderlust Quilt digital pattern (Quiltmaker Magazine Edition) will be included in the course a $7.99 value.

And we used the Essential Triangle Tool for all of these units!

Around here!

My yesterday in a nutshell. Or a crockpot. Chicken soup for dinner, totally yummy. And I am happy to say that invoice box number 3 is now empty! If your invoice number is 5509 or lower, your bundle is on its way to you! And we keep on trucking on!

On Quilt-Cam:  I am going to try a little demo cam to see what things are like when running it strictly from You-Tube.  I don't know what the format yet is yet, and I haven't had time, but if I can get it working, I'd love to do a Quilt-Cam on Sunday afternoon.  Let's see how that goes. Stay tuned for more info there.

Quiltville Quote of the Day!

This is especially true during this heated political time in our country. Why is it that some folks feel the need build themselves up by publicly raking others over the coals. Pointing fingers at others doesn't lift any one any higher.

Ordered my ruler last night. Would love to know the official date of the first clue for the 2017 Mystery quilt so I can ask for a vacation day off work.

I Finally finished reading through my FREE Wanderlust Table Runner pattern! I usually have to wait to read until I can thoroughly digest it. AND I had more pressing matters, like harvesting important parts and cleaning in the garden!

NOW, I am waiting patiently for my bundle and videos on the New Essential Triangle tool!

Thanks, So Much, Bonnie!
