Finished Projects from the October Weekend

October Weekend, Part 5: Finished Quilts and Finished Tops

Despite spending most of her weekend machine quilting a baby quilt that her sister Mary is giving as a shower gift, Joannie also finished the most beautiful quilt for her own daughter Jill (complete with label!).


Some of my favorite colors...

Jill just got her first apartment. She even sent Joannie a photo of the quilt on her bed. Looks great! I wonder if Jill's bedroom is always this neat!
Pat finished this cute Halloween quilt top.
It says, "Don't text and fly" on the bottom.
By late Sunday afternoon, I finished the top of Dr. D'Esopo's quilt. And I found the perfect fabric for the backing already in my Stash!
The quilt pattern was easy but tedious! All the left over triangles went into the pet pillows.
Emma finished a quilt for her American Girl doll. She has a family of 13 of them, so I expect she'll want to make another one!
Such happy colors! I'm sure Emma's doll will like her new quilt!
Marion finished the top of her Radio Way quilt.
I brought this kit home for Marion from the Houston Quilt Festival last year. She super-sized it! Looks great!

Come back soon, because there is still more from our October weekend including some awesome bags, besides those ubiquitous boxy pouches, and some great WIPs (works in progress)! This is the longest weekend post that I've ever serialized, but don't fret, our November Cape Weekend approaches... more blog fodder!

Linking up on Friday to Richard and Tanya's Link a Finish Friday and Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? from Confessions of a Fabric Addict. Thanks for visiting!

Pugs and kisses,


  1. Good Afternoon Nancy, Oh my word you have some very talented quilty friends. I love Joannie's quilt which she made for her daughter.... and Jill must be over the moon to receive such a wonderful gift. The colours are gorgeous, I love the mix of lavender and green.
    .... and what can I say about your quilt, other than it is absolutely fabulous. It may have been tedious to sew, but the end result is spectacular.
    It has been lovely to pop by and visit, I am only sorry I have not been around as much as I would like..... but as you know, my life is a little busy at the moment.
    Give my best wishes to your friends and have a lovely, relaxing Sunday.... and of course give the boys a hug for me.
    Best wishes
