Kelli is so lucky she has me….I’m under no illusion, I’m lucky to have her too. This week she came home and took care of the childcare kids so I could go to my doctor’s appointment in Lacrosse. I thought I would do a good turn back and finish up one of her quilts….
Pineapple Blossoms was the quilt that already had a backing together, so that’s the one I grabbed.
Kelli and I each started one of these when we first saw Bonnie Hunter in Storm Lake, Iowa.
I love this quilt. It’s a great design and pattern. I have seen this is so many different colors. I’ve seen it in brights and Civil War prints. Most any fabric looks good in this quilt.
I use a tan thread with the quilting.
Oh no quilt is complete without a Ruby picture….so here it is. She almost blends with the quilt.
This is a free Bonnie Hunter Pattern. You can find the free pattern here.
Here’s a picture of a MUCH younger Ruby with my Pineapple Blossoms quilt. Ruby was just a pup back then.
I love finishing a quilt. My favorite thing of all in walking into the sewing room and there isn’t one piece of the quilt left in the room. All of the scraps are cleaned up and put away is great. I feel like it’s a free ticket to start a new quilt..not that I need an excuse to start a new quilt!!
I am off to get another quilt loaded on the machine. Next up I think will be a charity quilt…and then Wonky Wishes…a charity quilt and then one for me…that seems like a good plan.
