A brand new year stretched out before me is the best gift of all. I'm excited over many things that will be happening in 2017 but the best decision by far was to no longer work my holidays, and spend them with my family. Name one thing you are excited about that will happen this year in the comments below! 😎 Vintage strippy quilt shared by @photokevin74 . . #quilt #quilting #patchwork #quiltville #bonniekhunter #vintagequilt #antiquequilt #deepthoughts #wisewords #wordsofwisdom…

It's a new year. Turn the Page. Watch where your energy is being used. Be Discerning who and what you give it to.

I've been slow to post my focus word for 2017. I kept coming up with phrases, ideas, but nothing really to settle on. But it is all wrapped up in this quote by George Bernard Shaw. My word is act. I choose how I am going to act, and this includes not reacting in any knee jerk manner to things that upset me. Sometimes that means not acting at all until the water clears and I can then see how to proceed with any situation. Sometimes it means being liberal with the delete button not only…

I believe this, whatever you want to call it. Clouds have silver linings, the sun rises tomorrow, we've all heard it before but I really believe it's true. Every difficulty brings an opportunity for growth. It's how you greet those opportunities that make all the difference in the world. Swing Your Partner quilt from my book Scraps & Shirttails. This quilt also lives at my dad's and I'm happy to visit it whenever I can! . . #quilt #quilting #patchwork #quiltville #bonniekhunter #scrapquilt…

There are only a couple days of 2016 left. I love to end the year on a high note and think of all of the positive things that have happened this past year. I am so grateful for all of the experiences this year and look forward to the next adventure! I love this interesting quilt that looks like spinning tops, not quite dreidels but this is for my Jewish friends still celebrating Hanukkah. While Christmas only lasted one day growing up I was always a tiny bit jealous of those who got to…

This girl is smiling because I am home! My feet will be on the ground until early February as my next trip is a driving one down to Hilton Head and I'm really looking forward to that. I love this vintage 4 patch nine patch quilt shared during our workshops in Prescott this past week. Simple blocks make me happy! . . #quilt #quilting #patchwork #quiltville #bonniekhunter #vintagequilt #antiquequilt #deepthoughts #wisewords #wordsofwisdom #quiltvillequote #quote #inspiration

I often think of alone time as time to recharge my batteries. We all need it. Some of our best ideas come to the surface when we have time to quietly listen. Being alone doesn't make me lonely. It gives me distance from the voices of the world so I can hear my own. Today is a driving trip day for me from Winston-Salem, North Carolina to Hilton Head, South Carolina. It's just the kind of alone time I need. No airports, no airplanes and cramped spaces, just me, my thoughts, and a beautiful…

You can either settle and accept things the way they are, or step up to responsibility and make a change. It's okay to start slowly.
