Blossoms in Bloomington!

Pineapple blossoms of many colors were started yesterday in our first workshop of the Indiana Heritage Quilt Show in Bloomington, Indiana --

Which student came the farthest in our class?  This sweet gal Lynn lives north of Toronto, Canada and drove all the way down to  come to class!  She was visiting her nephew last year during show time and noticed the signs and came on in.   From there she was bound and determined to come back this year as well.  That’s one cool Auntie!

Her blocks were coming together in pastel florals on crisp white….yes, the Canadians are ready for spring to arrive too!

My Pineapple Blossom quilt ----
Our busy quilters got  SEW MUCH DONE!

On another note....did you know that today is International Women's Day?!

Happy International Women's Day, Ladies! Did you know that Women's Day started being observed in the early 1900s? Click HERE for more REALLY interesting info, some stuff I was completely unaware of! Celebrate our womenhood today --- by QUILTING of course!

Today is also  a Jamestown Landing day!  We’ll be busy celebrating International Women's Day with neutral string blocks and star blocks and a whole lotta fun!
Enjoy your Friday, everyone!


  1. such a pretty quilt! I love that one.

  2. Oh Bonnie, thanks for the amazing slide show--isn't it wonderful how one pattern can be interpreted in so many different ways. Just lovely work--and worker bees..Julierose

  3. being a Canadian myself...cheers to the lady from north of Toronto who was in your class.Maybe one day I will be able to do a class with you too.There is lots of snow but it is getting mild and it will be disappearing soon with spring just around the corner!
    Those pineapples are so cheery and tempting to start one.

  4. I love these slide shows as I am always fascinated by the different sewing machines people use. Thanks.

  7. Oh my goodness!~ They are all so pretty! Love this pattern!~ I really love the Spring one. I guess it's that time of the year, so I gravitate to that. Would be pretty with my Hawaiian shirts that I keep talking about doing something with...
    So glad that you make all of us women's lives better. Thanks Bonnie!~

  8. HI Bonnie, Never n a million, those small ones are intimidating. HOwever I would love making the larger blocks with less parts. How could one get the pattern? thanks, Keep smiling, as you are in every photo I see of you..
