Talkin’ Turkey in Windham, Maine!

27 Quilters – 27 bins of scraps!

27,000 flying geese!  ((or what felt like it!))

2,700 string blocks ((But oh, what fun!))

We had such a nice day ---and the Maine sky decided to  shine blue and put on her best sunshine for us –we let it stream through the windows while we sewed inside –the best of both worlds!

This is just a sampling of what we got up to ---take a look!


I don’t think this pile of strings went down by much, but oh, what fun!


Busy bees around the cutting tables!


In cahoots!  You have to watch out for these two!


Show me your blocks!


Hold ‘em high, ladies!


Every one is a winner!


And these gals!  Oh, Canada!!  They arrived from Moncton!

Super fun day – more photos to follow, I took something like 80 photos making up for the lost ones from yesterday! 

I’ll spend time this evening and get them posted in tomorrow morning’s slide show---I’m getting ready to spend the evening with a Law & Order marathon and a whole bunch of sewing in jammies!

Oh yes – and because we are in Maine, dinner was here:




Hug a Lobsterman!

Too bad he won’t fit in my luggage!  But it is already over weight limits anyway ---he sure is cute though, isn’t he?!

Have a great Sunday evening everyone!

  1. Absolutely love that pattern; hope it is one they choose for your workshop when you come to visit in March 2016!! Linda

  2. Wonderful post and a wonderful quilt! Although I'm sorry to have missed you as you were sold out, I'm so glad that Northern New Englanders and Canadians are really getting enthused about Bonnie Hunter! Yeay!!

    How is it that there are always at least one pair of participants that look devious and in cahoots in your courses? I would be VERY careful if I were you! They might make scraps of your stash, or stash all your scraps! In order to avoid such madness and mayhem, it might be advisable to take a break and do a course far, far away -- lets say in BC or Alberta? We can only hope. In the meantime, have lots of fun in the snow, and keep up the good work:)

  4. Looks like loads of fun!! And WOW....... triple lobster dinner!!! Yummmm!
    Safe travels!
