I was going to uplaod pictures to show you all the fun things we have been doing here in Storm Lake, Iowa, seeing Bonnie Hunter..but I forgot my camera cord…UGH. THe pictures are going to have to wait until tomorrow.
Yestereday was the Pineapple Blossom workshop. My daughter Kelli got 36 blocks sewn….me, 30 blocks. B0th of us will be ready to cut sashing and put the quilt together once we are home. Today we are working on My Blue Heaven…Mine in red…Kelli’s in all scraps of all colors. I can’t wait to see her’s.
Kelli and I both thought we were a little obsessive to travel this far to see Bonnie but there are people who have traveled further. Everyone has alwas said, if Bonnie comes to area to go…they are so right.
Kelli and I both volunteered to hold Bonnie’s quilts for the trunk show….WOW is all I can say….WOW. If you even remotely liked them in the books, in person they are even better.
We are off to go to class. Have a great day, I know we will!!

You are so right! A friend and I drove 2 hours to attend a Bonnie workshop because it was the closest she was going to get to us for a couple years and we just couldn’t wait that long! And, yes, it was well worth it! Glad you are having fun – can’t wait to see the pictures!
I visited a quilt guild about 50 miles away to hear Bonnie speak a few weeks ago. I tried to be a quilt holder, but other ladies kept jumping up in front of me, lol. So glad you and DD had a great time!
