With Four of Bonnie Hunter's Blocks, it is starting to look like an invested project! Block #4 is called "Birthday Girl", published in Volume #2, Quiltmaker's 100 Block collector's edition.

First - on the design wall, ready for assembly of the two remaining sections.
Last shot is outside -- I was almost finished with the binding last night and wanted to take the picture before the sun went down.
The Helping Hands Quilt (our guild's charity program) finished at 64" X 88 -- the center used 4 1/2" Kona solid squares and same fabric used for the border. The scraps were 2 1/2" X 4 1/2" rectangles. The pattern was inspired by a Shop Hop Pattern from a few years ago (Mama's Quilt Shop in Independence, LA.) We are just a couple weeks away from the 2017 Shop Hop, so I need to dig out the mad money.

A smaller version of my "Thunderbirds" Quilt (Black Cat Creations Pattern) commissioned by a newborn's Great Aunt Ginny from Michigan. Special thanks to Cheryl at The Quilters Garden in Fenton, Michigan who assisted Ginny with the fabric choices. The top will finish at 60 X 60" and will be large enough for the baby boy to use for many years to come -- especially since high quality batiks are being used.
Just need to sew the blocks together and load it on the long-arm! Almost done.

And then there were three!!! Making the blocks in between several other projects -- I'm sooooo not in a hurry. My hope is Bonnie will continue to design for the Quiltmaker's 100 Block series until there is enough for a nice size quilt.
The newest block, top left, is called "Midnight Flight" and was published in Volume 4 of the Quiltaker's 100 Block collector's edition. (Note: I am not going in order of publication).
