Back Cover Information

Come celebrate the relationship between quilting thrifty and quilting green with well-known scrap quiltmaker Bonnie K. Hunter!

Quiltmakers have always known how to reuse, re-purpose and recycle their fabrics to make warm, functional quilts. Today, in our abundant world, being green isn't just about being thrifty, it's about keeping an eye on the world around us, doing everything we as quilters can to sustain it.

From reusing fabrics in our stashes, re-purposing thrift store fabrics and recycling cotton clothing from our own closets to learning how to shop the local quilt store for green products, Bonnie steps us through the entire process.

Learn how to make 12 new earth friendly quilts plus a bonus shopping bag as Bonnie shares with us her secrets to quilting green!

Author Bonnie K. HunterAbout the Author

Bonnie K. Hunter is passionate about quilting, focusing mainly on scrap quilts with the simple feeling of "making do." She started her love affair with quilting in a home economics class her senior year of high school in 1980 and has never looked back.

Before quilting became her full time career, Bonnie was the owner and designer of "Needle in a Haystack!" creating over 70 patterns for dolls and stuffed animals with a country primitive feel. Many of her designs were licensed through the Butterick Pattern Company. Bonnie is also a licensed massage therapist, nationally certified in therapeutic massage and body work.

But quilting has always been Bonnie's first love. She has been machine quilting for 19 years and professionally longarm machine quilting for the public for 13 years.

Bonnie is dedicated to continuing the traditions of quilting. She enjoys meeting with quilters, teaching workshops and lecturing to quilt guilds all over the USA, challenging quilters to break the rules, think outside the box and find what brings them joy.

When not traveling and teaching, she spends her time piecing scrap quilts, enjoying the peaceful reward of hand quilting as much as machine quilting, and loving life in her wooded surroundings in beautiful rural Wallburg, North Carolina. She and her husband, Dave, are the proud parents of two grown sons, Jason and Jeffrey. They round out their household with two dogs, Buddy and Sadie.
