Pineapple Blossom Workshop

Here is my chain-pieced pile falling off my lap onto the floor at the workshop.


Here is my stack chain-pieced behind my sewing machine.  Progress!!

Here is Bonnie in the middle with me and Susanna.  Bonnie said she likes pictures where people look like they are having a great time.  Do WE look like we were having a great time??
The day before we left, I saw our sewing machine foot on the ironing board.  I was thinking, "that is going to get lost".  So I put it in a safe place.  Of course, I could not remember where that place was, so we had to use the walking foot on the machine.  I used that one since it would be more difficult that using my Janome.  So my progress was slow.  Susanna got 18 blocks completed.  I was working on 30.  I got all but the last cream triangle sewn on.

We had a fantastic time.  Bonnie is the best.  I am her greatest fan.  Bought her newest book after seeing the quilts in person.

What a quilting inspiration!

I would LOVE to go to one of Bonnie's workshops! She truly is an inspiration! I did one of her mystery quilts - a year ago for Christmas. And I would love to do some of her other quilts. You are probably just as productive as she is - you keep cranking them out and they are fantastic!
