MLK Weekend 2019: More Quilts!

Hello Dear Blogging Friends,

Here are some more fabulous quilts as seen at our 2019 MLK Quilt Weekend from my Brown Bagger Quilting friends.

The first two are made by my friend Joannie.
This is a memorial quilt that Joan made from her Aunt's clothing. It is even more fantastic in person.
Here's a close-up. There are many different types of clothing in it. If you look closely at upper left, you'll even find parts of a housecoat! My Mom used to change from her work clothes into a housecoat when she got home. Do you remember housecoats? I think they were the equivalent of today's sweatpants.
Here's how Joan incorporated a pair of capri pants.
Joan also finished this cute baby quilt.
Here's a close-up of some of the fabrics in it.
Jo Ann E. finished the top of another old birthday block quilt. I love the bright colors. This is very different than Jo Ann's usual color palette. She prefers browns and soft colors.
Marion received these fabrics as a birthday gift from Joannie one year and she put together this striking quilt top. I helped her find the border fabric on the internet.

The photo below is Marion's quilt called "Fairy Tales," which is the name of the fabric line used in the quilt top. Marion put the outer borders on this past weekend.

 Below is Marion hard at work.

I put together the top of a baby quilt for my brother Gary, who is giving it as a gift to his co-teacher. By Saturday, I had it almost quilted. The quilt is cotton and flannel. I'm going to finish it with a wide satin binding. I know the baby will enjoy all the different textures.
Here is a quilt that Kim P. completed for our friend Jean. Kim finished the piecing and did the machine quilting.
Here is Joanne S. with her scrappy Many Trips Around the World quilt. Looks like she is checking her work.
Special thanks to Kim P. for providing many of the photos for the MLK blogs.

Thanks for visiting!

Pugs and kisses,
