Bonnie Hunter scrappy bug

I am very addicted to Bonnie Hunter's scrappy quilts and anything scrappy. After doing three of her Mysteries:  Orca Bay, Easy Street and Celtic Solstice I have completed two more of her patterns, scrappy bargello and scrappy trip. Had to venture off on my own and this one is just off the frame. This is my own design still thinking of an appropriate name, perhaps Starry Path's? Would love your feedback.
Oh...and I am eagerly awaiting the new MQ, Grande Illusion:)



Starry Paths?

And this is another scrappy that I made in the early spring.  Bonnie's wonky stars made bigger. 

Bonnie's pattern Scrappy Bargello quilted and ready for giving as a Christmas gift. 
I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend and are enjoying the Canada Blogathon. 
Have a look at my Pattern Page, I have some new patterns .

I am a huge fan of scrappy quilts, and yours are stunning! Love your colour selections and wonderful piecing. So nice to visit from Blogathon Canada and see your beautiful work!

I'm a huge fan of scrappy quilts, too and these are lovely. I always feel a scrappy quilt has more interest, partly because it has more stories to tell due to all the different fabrics.

I love Bonnie's quilts too but they are labour intensive. I have only made Easy Street mind you. Lovely work!

I have not done one of Bonnie's mystery quilts but I have made her Fourth of July quilt and her trip around the world. Some day I am going to make her wonky stars and her scrappy many trips around the world..
I am sure the Grand Illusion will be another lovely quilt.
Regards from Alberta,
