November Sunday with the Brown Baggers

Just another fun Sunday with my Brown Bagger quilting friends. If you're new to my blog, here's the secret guide to the origins of the Brown Bagger quilting group.

Here are a couple of very pretty quilt tops that were finished (or almost finished).
Joannie made this stunning t-shirt quilt for her friend who recently lost her son. She is making a second t-shirt quilt for the young man's Aunt.
Pat is working on a block of the month kit that she bought a couple of years ago. I love the beautiful colors and Kaffe Fassett prints. It is really more of a border of the month kit, radiating out from the center medallion.
Marion has two more borders to add to her batik beauty.
Debbie layered her Yellow Brick Road.
Here are some photos of us in our native habitat.
We celebrated three birthdays. Our day began with delicious celebratory muffins (thanks Debbie) and ended with equally delicious frozen yogurt cake from Orange Leaf (thanks Kim).
As good as they looked...
Junior Brown Bagger Emma, Aunt Joanne and Marion admire Joanne's zesty striped blocks.
Debbie chose 30s prints for her blocks. Marion is our designated wrapping recycler. She is very good at folding tissue paper.
Kim P. provided bright conversation prints. Marion and Joan S. are checking them out. Kim is considering making two quilts from her birthday blocks. One cut into squares and one using circles. Our birthday block this year is the Dresden Squared from the Missouri Star Quilt Company.
Two more pet pillows were stuffed with recycled scraps. Thanks Brown Bagger friends. This year, we've donated 36 pet pillows to the local MSPCA.
Emma rode out in style with a push from Aunt Joanne.
Thanks for visiting!

Pugs and kisses,


  1. All your different birthday blocks are great. It is so cool to see all the different things they are working on.

  2. hi nancy! I've been reading your blog for a while now and love it. i started reading you because you're a quilter as i am, and your name is nancy! anyhoo, I've got a bunch of scraps to make a pet pillow but wanted to know how you did it. i was thinking of filling some pillowcases that i have and sewing them shut. is this big enough? do you tack it down so the stuffing doesn't move? great idea by the way. thanks and give your cute pugs a hug from me! nancyb
