|Here's our silly group selfie: from left to right: Joanne, Sally (wearing the iron); Nancy D., Cheryl, me, and Karen. Jean is the white cotton ball in front.|
I drove up with Sally this year. She was nice enough to pick me up as well as pack everything that Mike had prepared the night before. Since my recent gallbladder surgery, I'm not supposed to lift anything for a month. The other Brown Baggers were equally wonderful and they rushed to help Sally unload the car once we arrived. Sally and I visited several of the stores from my Go West itinerary along the way. I promise to share some photos of the goodies in a future post.
|I confess that all the crap in back of Sally's car belongs to me. |
Not sure why Sally is smiling... she had to pack it and unpack it.
Thanks Sally, you were an excellent roommate!
Nancy D. was the most prolific of the bunch AGAIN! She put the binding on 14 Halloween table runners, quilted seven Christmas table runners and pieced two baby quilts. Nancy, did I miss anything? The table runners she made below are from Karen's original pattern called Cat Tales. I sense a Pug Tales version in the making even if I have to design it myself!
|Nancy is all smiles after putting the binding on her 14th table runner!|
|These beauties are gifts for Nancy's book club friends. |
Nancy, did I mention that I'm joining your book club???
|Never too early to get started on your Christmas projects!|
|Here is Sally's quilt. It is a real beauty in batik. |
Sally has been bringing this project to our retreats for a couple of years.
I LOVE IT!!!! We ALL loved it!!
|Joanne's quilt grew and grew over the weekend. Fortunately Nancy D. brought her large design wall.|
|Here is Joanne with her box of arcs.|
|The quilt grew larger than the design wall. FABULOUS!!|
|Here's a close-up of the Double Wedding Ring block. Joanne used fabulous |
Kaffe Fassett prints with a super cute polka dot background (also KFC).
Cheryl worked on two beautiful quilt tops also made with Kaffe Fassett fabrics.
|Cheryl completed this top. Each block is like an individual miniature quilt. GORGEOUS!!!|
|We all helped Cheryl layout her blocks for her second quilt |
and she assembled all of her rows by the end of the week.
Next step, assemble the top! Also GORGEOUS!!!
|Karen was hard at work designing some new patterns. |
She sent me this photo. She was also working on another one that I don't have a photo of.
|Jean worked on these graphic log cabin blocks.|
Thanks to all my Brown Bagger buddies who contributed photos for this post: Sally, Cheryl, and Karen!
I've got more Berkshire stories. Come back soon! Thanks for visiting!
Pugs and kisses,
