How to Make a Scrap Quilt with Bonnie K Hunter | See Antique Sewing Machines
(Show 1410) Bonnie Hunter, author, designer, blogger, and self-described "scrapaholic", made her first quilt using her grandmother's cardboard templates. Bonnie, still enjoys stitching on her beloved treadle machine and uses a webcam so her followers can watch her at work in her studio! She shares her quilter-friendly system for cutting and sorting scraps. Bonnie also has a technique for making quick 2"-finished half-square-triangle units from strips, with her ingenious "Leaders and Enders" technique, and makes thrifty use of leftovers and thread. In addition, Bonnie shows how she builds a quilt using fabric "strings" and phonebook-page foundations, and how to play with the finished blocks. We end with a field trip to meet Nebraska quiltmaker, author, teacher, and quilt judge Shelly Burge, who currently incorporates copper crimping in her quilts—while curating her collection of over 300 (!) vintage sewing machines.
