We were inspired by Kate who was reading us plural names for animals over the weekend. Perhaps you've heard of "a murder of crows" or "a flamboyance of flamingos." I own a "grumble" of pugs.
Pat takes home the award for Most Tenacious Quilter. Pat's sewing machine froze on Friday while she was quilting a baby quilt. Yes, froze up with the needle in the quilt. Kate was able to extricate the quilt for her, but the machine needs to go in for repair.
What do you do when you are planning to sew for three days at a quilt weekend and your machine breaks on your very first day? Pat made a two hour round trip to her beach cottage and picked up her spare machine. If she had been forced to drive all the way home, it would have been a four hour trip! Our back-up plan was to send Pat to Joann Fabrics and have her purchase an inexpensive machine.

for Grandson Ryan, but she had a hard day on Friday.
|This is Pat's Singer 301. Unlike her modern predecessor, the 301 happily sewed all weekend.|
Pat bought this machien at the Brimfield Antiques Fair many years ago.
The old classics always work!
Undeterred by her unplanned intermission, Pat even made three pillowcases for her grandchildren and a fleece baby blanket.
|More than 50 Shades of Grey in this quilt!|
|Let me out!!|
|The finished top. A beauty!|
|Day 1: A baby quilt for Sharon's new grand baby. |
Sharon is Sally's sister-in-law and an honorary Brown Bagger.
|Love the monkey!|
|Day 2: Sally made the stuffed fish for her grandson, who is recovering from surgery. |
The pinwheel blocks are for another project, but it looks like the fish is blowing quilty bubbles.
|Day 3: More pinwheels. The scrappy blocks on the right belong to Joan S.|
|Here is Sally's pinwheel production line!|
Here's an update on our Most Admired Quilt Top from our November 2014 Quilt Weekend:

Sew much more to come from our Cape weekend!
