Friday Finishes

Its been a very busy, productive week.  Monday, I spoke and provided a trunk show to the Fair City Quilters in Sandwich.  Tuesday, Harry Potter, my Australian Shepherd, and I spoke to the kids at Tiskilwa Library for the after-school program.  Visiting the library may become a regular fun thing for Harry and I .  Its so much fun to see those young minds working.
I also got some baking done for meals and made cookies for the social hour at church. 
I am heading out to visit with my retreat friends in Fulton today and I will also be taking oatmeal raisin and chocolate cookies for a snack.
Here's my finish for the week.  This blue and brown scrap quilt pattern is call Keep Kids Warm by Ami Sims.  It is a free pattern on her website.
Here's a close-up.  I used a quilting pattern called Star Spangled B2B.  The thread is Robinson Anton brown. 
 I used my scraps across the back to lengthen the backing fabric.
Saturday I will be teaching beginning quilting and free motion quilting at the Fair City Quilt Guild.  I prepared muslin and batting pieces for the students to make fabric sandwiches to practice on. 
Supplies ready, pins, 505 spray, marking tools, stencils, quilting gloves, etc.
Congratulations to Anne B.  Your quilt is featured on Link a Finish Friday on Richard and Tanya Quilts. 

Have a great weekend.
