CGC Finishes......

A local quilt shop has a stash clean out deal this time of year. You donate your unwanted stash for charity, and they give you $$$ per lb. I came out with lots of $$$ and a general feeling of pessimism about my addiction. I think I am needing this.....


Here are my two finishes, and I love them both so much. This was a simple rail fence, but....

....when you send them out to be quilted they become even MORE gorgeous!!! What a luxury....and I am worth it ( sometimes )!!!
This lovely layer cake became this...

Thanks Moda Bakeshop for the pattern. I think I am circle quilt obsessed. It was SEW much fun.
Next week is quilt camp, which means more starts that will eventually need finishes. Thank goodness for the motivation of this fun club. I am VERY slowly seeing some progress!!!

As always, love your quilts. How did you ever have time and still go on your getaway.
Loved all your "country girl" pictures. It looked like a great getaway and loved the pictures of what you got to come home to...sweet Clare...she is growing so much. I got to hold my Emmy while Mommy went to the doctor today. She slept, but I can still get a whiff of her smell on my shoulder.
Where is your quilt camp held? That sounds heavenly.

Your rail fence is soooooo pretty. Oh and if you find that group, I'll be right there with you! LOL! I gave away a ton of fabric I knew I'd never use and I don't think I can even see a dent in the shelves...pitiful...but I love it!
