Bonnie's on my bed!

I missed out on my weekly design wall Monday posting yesterday, because nothing is on my design wall.  I've been at the hospital almost every day for a week and a half. The good news is that my brother is temporarily out of ICU but may need more surgery, so we are just waiting to hear about that. The infection is slowly clearly and he is breathing better now. The only non-hospital thing I did on the weekend was some laundry, grocery shopping, cooked an Easter dinner for my family, did a quick easter egg hunt for the kids, and then back to the hospital. Which means no time for quilting :(
Last night I did some late night blog hopping (who needs sleep!??!) and found that Bonnie Hunter is hosting a linky party on her Quiltville blog to show "what's on your bed". 
Interestingly, many of the blog posts show that a Bonnie Hunter quilt is on their bed, and I am no exception...I have "Double Delight" on my bed today! 
My photo shows me that I need to make more exciting pillowcases to match this quilt! 
The free pattern for Double Delight is still posted on Bonnie's website - click here to get it. Bonnie freely gives the world so many wonderful quilt patterns, we all need to go buy one of her books to support her creative endeavors. Her books are amazing, great directions, lots of fun projects, tips, and eye candy for quilters. Go check out what other bloggers have posted - click here.

  3. I am glad your brother is doing better. Your quilt looks awesome...I had to make cute pillowcases to match the quilt on my bed too. I didn't make anything fancy, just cute, bright cases. Love them!

  8. You are so right, that we need to buy Bonnie's books to support her and her quilting creativeness... Not only are the full of great quilt pics and clear instructions, but I love reading her words about them - what was going on in her life when she was making them... it's like sitting down with her on the phone and talking together. :) You don't get that from other quilt books.

    Your quilt colors are so pretty! Great job!

    Hope your brother is feeling much better soon and recovery time goes smooth.

    Love from Indiana! ~bonnie

  9. I hope he continues to improve and regains his strength and health. When I read your earlier post I felt so bad for you and him. In Feb I became suddenly ill and was in the hospital for a week with a blood infection and pneumonia and dehydration, but I didn't get as sick as your brother, however, I know how badly I felt and for him it must be even worse. Take care of you too as you sit by him. xo

  10. Glad to hear your brother is doing a bit better. Be careful you don't make yourself sick by doing too much, 'cause then you won't be able to help him. You are so right about Bonnie. I love your version of her quilt design.
