Here is my first finish of the weekend:
|This pattern is called Faceted Jewels and it is by Glad Creations.|

Here is my second finish of the weekend:
http://www.etsy.com/shop/2PugsDesign?ref=si_shop. It is for a sweet young woman who saved all her t-shirts from camp. It came out very cute!
Next to be finished was a series of two matching Asian Sampler quilts. I purchased this quilt as a kit from the Cambridge Quilt Shop http://www.cambridgequilts.com/ at a Shop Hop back in 2006. Marion was home sick with the stomach flu, so I bought her one too. I broke the kit down into two wall-hangings. Originally, I had intended to hang them in my stairwell, but I think I may give them as gifts. I love Asian fabric but it really doesn't go with my decorating style, which is kind of "beach-themed". These quilts are special because my then 9-year old nephew Josh spent the whole day with me and helped me select where each of the squares would go in the quilts. I finished both of these tops in 2008, and they've been waiting for binding since December of 2011. They'll be happy to go to a good home! Marion is helping me hold up the pair. Her quilt was done a long time ago and now lives with her son Michael and his wife Julie. Are you counting with me? That's 4 done so far!
http://www.redbarnonline.com/ in Merrimac, MA. This fabric sat around for a long time before I even took it out of the bag. Luckily I had written some notes and left them in the bag with the pattern and the fabric. I finished this top in March of 2010. It too has been sitting around waiting for a binding since December of last year. Red Barn holds a special place in my heart because it is the shop where I took my first quilting lessons!
Here is quilt #7 that I actually finished on Wednesday night BEFORE the quilt weekend. It only needed one strip of binding, but I had misplaced the binding fabric! This was made out of our 2003 Brown Bagger Birthday Blocks. This quilt even sat on my couch for a while before I remembered that it was still missing a small piece of binding!
Regretfully, I still have four more quilts and two quilted jackets that still need binding! But, wait, there is another quilt weekend in just two weeks! Thanks goodness for poor scheduling!
Don't worry, there will be a separate blog post showing off all the Brown Baggers and their projects from the quilt weekend! Hope you enjoyed the show!
Pugs and kisses,
