I got the border blocks (large HSTs) done and the top for Bonfire sewn together last week, just need to get the backing and batting. This is a big one, 81" x 81"give or take 1/4 inch ;) I don't know who decided on 1/4" seam for quilting, but there are times when the air is blue around my sewing machine! The feed dogs don't get a good grasp so quite often (way too often) my seams go haywire right from the start, especially if there is a seam (such as an hst) at the beginning. Anyway, that's my moan for the moment.
I love Bonfire! The colors are bold and make me happy and the blocks are a nice mix of textures and techniques. I haven't got a clue how I'll quilt it, I just know I want it for MY bed! I might even have it long arm quilted. Of course that would mean having to go to the local shop and asking... that might be a bit of a step outside my comfort zone LOL
Bonfire was a BOM that was FREE to join, but you had to buy the book Sister Sampler Quilts by AnneMarie Chany. I grumbled and moaned at first because last year I paid for the Vice Versa BOM and it's Chapter 3 in the book, so I kind of paid twice for it ;) BUT, the book is awesome! I love every single block in it and will do them again, and in some cases again. Also, I won a $25 Gift Card for Fat Quarter Shop in January (for linking up Moon & Star) . I missed most of the link ups because I didn't take this one with me when I went to England in April and didn't catch up until July. All in all, I'd give Bonfire a big ~~~SMILE~~~ and truly recommend the book.
