Thank you Bonnie Hunter for my new addiction!!!

Our guild meeting had a guest last month, Bonnie Hunter from Quiltville and I now have a new addiction.  I looked at her Easy Street but because I recently had hip surgery and my attention span is still that of a flea, I decided to start easier then her Easy Street and just cut 2" squares and make 4 patches from them.  This was fun and easy and I saw how she said whenever you sew, always add a few 2" square sewing in to the beginning and end of whatever you sew.  She also said when you cut fabric for a quilt or project to finish cutting the piece.  I have done that and cut everything I can into 2" squares.

I have thoroughly enjoyed doing this and find it very relaxing....but now I have a bazillion 4 patches and I am not sure what I am going to do with them but I must say, that I love them and I love them together.

Here is an example of some that I just had to throw up on my design wall.

Bonnie asked on her blog this week for ideas of what to do with her huge box of 2" scraps and is getting quite a few good ideas, check it out!

Sharyn: under which post did she ask that question? I looked under Easy Street and couldn't find it. Thanks for your help and suggestion!
