Bonnie Blue Quilts

I found this quilt in one of my old magazines (I have them back to the 90's)  and my intent was to make a table runner but I cant stop making the blocks.  I have made 18 blocks so far. The crazy part is not all of these were leftover scraps, I had to cut yardage to get what I needed to make this.

The designer of this quilt, Paula Barnes, says "It forces us to put together fabrics that we normally wouldn't." Bonnie Blue Quilts

I love what Bonnie Hunter (quilter) Bonnie Hunter- Quiltville has to say about the use of ugly fabric.  "If your fabric is still ugly after you cut it didn't cut it up small enough!" Maybe that is why I have a box of 1 1/2 inch squares. I just cant part with any of it!
This will be hard to give up, I really like how it is coming together.

Time to put this ole gal to work.
