March 2018 Bonnie Hunter Cathedral Stars Workshop

We had the pleasure of hosting Bonnie Hunter this March! She taught a wonderful workshop on her beautiful Cathedral Stars quilt. We enjoyed her upbeat teaching style and learned so many cool, new techniques! We are so grateful to her and to everyone who came out to join us for the workshop. Many ladies brought their Bonnie Hunter patterned quilts to show her! It was such a great time!

Bonnie Hunter gave a spectacular program at our March meeting! We had guests from Arkansas, Missouri, Wisconsin, and all over Illinois here to see her! Her trunk show and stories were entertaining and inspiring.
