Virginia Bound in Tampa!

I’m back tracking a bit.

With post after post after post during my 2 weeks in Florida of daily workshops, lectures and show and share, and a give away post,  and flying from one part of the state to the other -

And winding up sick and at the doc-in-a-box twice ---some things just had to be saved until I returned home because I was already doing as many posts as I could do.  On what time I had.

Plus.  I  was sick.  Sicker than I’ve ever been in a long long time and let’s face it, sometimes you just can’t post it all.

When sick, it’s hard to sit there and edit down all the photos, write all the text, and post everything.  On schedule.

I knew there would be time to make up for it this weekend.

And as I go back through these –I remember what an awesome time we had.

And I’m happy to see them all again!


These ladies were so much fun!


And just crazy enough to fit right in!


And the blocks!  Oh, the blocks!


All of the colors – SO FLORIDA!

So, I present to you the long over due ((with very good reason)) slide show for our Virginia Bound workshop in Tampa!  Thank you for your patience!

Virginia Bound in Tampa, March 2015


Today --- rainy, foggy, clouds hanging low.  I love how the view of the mountains change hour by hour, not just day by day.


The perfect day to curl up in my comfy chair and bind, baby bind!  I finished stitching down a hanging sleeve on a quilt I’m sending in to Quiltmaker shortly.  Just have the label to go on that one, and then on to the next.

These two I’m working on are for future publication so they are being kept a bit under the radar, but I am so happy to see them done!  You’ll be seeing them in the future.

Tonight we’ve got 8 of us gathering for a dinner to celebrate the Hubster’s birthday this week.

With my oven out until last night it was decided that I would be responsible for rolls.  Hahaha!  I can do that!

Enjoy your Saturday, everyone!

    Where can I get the Virginia Bound pattern?

  2. Virginia Bound is in Bonnie's First Scraps and Shirttails Book. Now I want to make it too. So many quilts on my plate I can't eat! Lol

  3. I don't usually make the same pattern twice, (I've made Virginia Bound and gifted it), but this post makes me long to do another one.

  4. Gorgeous blocks for Virginia Bound, it is on my to do list! Have the book, have the fabric, just need some time. Stay healthy Bonnie .

  5. Happy Birthday to Hubster! Enjoy your time together!

  6. Love your hexie creation. Colors are beautiful.

  7. Glad you are home and feeling better!

    Lots of inspiration in this slide show. The oranges! (Love that the maker had on orange pants:) .)

    The strip with the cows perfectly centered... I "need" that, having grown up on a dairy farm.

    The calm, soothing blues and greens - so perfect for FL!

    And the blue with the constant blue and white background.

    Oh, my!! Such a versatile pattern, with many ideas I'd never considered

    Enjoy your time home and, as always, thank you for sharing.

  8. I am just amazed that you managed to keep going when you were so sick. Good job or craziness.

  9. I am so inspired by Virginia Bound in Tampa that I ordered the book the pattern is in and can't wait to get started! Those Tampa ladies know how to pull great colors together :)
    Thanks Bonnie!

  10. I always told my Daughter to bring the rolls at Turkey Day!! Now she does dinner and it's my turn!! Love your quilts! Jenny

  11. Darn, I was hoping when I read the Virginia Bound that meant you actually are coming to VIRGINIA!!! Phooeey
