2018 Brown Bagger MLK Quilt Weekend

First finish of the year for the talented Kim P.
Here's the back of Kim's quilt so you can see her very fabulous machine quilting. She used lime green thread. Kim is an award-winning quilter who has exhibited her quilts at the Vermont Quilt Festival and in the Hoffman Quilt Challenge.
Another lovely MLK quilt weekend has come to a close. We've all lost track, but we've probably been doing this for at least 20 years. We held a birthday party for Marion, hosted a black and white fabric RLC, and held our overdue holiday fabric swap. We were thrilled that our favorite junior Brown Bagger, Emma, age 11 joined us. Wendy sewed with us this weekend and we were also visited briefly by Cordula who came by to layer a quilt. Sending get well wishes to Pat and Lori who were still sick and couldn't join us.
Marion, at right, completed this lovely lap quilt. She is assisted by Sue in this photo.
Here are some of the blocks that Marion received for her birthday.
Here is Kim G. with the top of her Broken Dishes quilt.
Emma finished this cute reversible fleece blanket for her dog Wags.
Since Emma got a new dog, Ginger, for Christmas she made a new blanket for Wags so he wouldn't feel left out.
Come back tomorrow for Pugtastic Tuesday. I will have more later this week on my own projects from the MLK Weekend plus I will eventually get to writing the review of making Anna's bag.

Thanks for visiting!

Pugs and kisses,


  1. Great projects by the brown baggers. Sounds like there were quite a few MIA.

  2. Oh man...only wish I had such a great group of women to have an annual holiday sew weekend with. My girls use to love making those tie blankets....kuddos to all as their work is bright and fun!
