Wanderlust with Bonnie Hunter – An Online Course

We’re pleased to welcome Quiltville’s Bonnie Hunter as a guest blogger! She’s going to tell us all about her Wanderlust online course.


Have you registered for my Wanderlust Quilt with Bonnie Hunter (Scrap Quilting Basics from Beginning to Binding!) course yet??

Since we used my Essential Triangle Tool for a past Quiltville mystery, if you participated, you’ll already have it on hand for the Wanderlust project. Taking this workshop is just the ticket for refreshing techniques for when you need them and honing up some skills—wherever you have an internet connection, you can access my course.

PERFECT!

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

Many of these same techniques and more MAY be used in one way or another during the Quiltville 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 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 will be included as a free download in the course.

Also with enrollment, a free Wanderlust table runner pattern.
