Marcie's Inca Gold and Brenda (Dear Jane) Papadakis

Two good Saturdays. Today, I finished a large quilt top that I have been working on since last Sunday using Marcie's Inca Gold pattern. Sorry, Marcie, couldn't get the bottom off the ground there:
Marcie's directions are wonderful. I didn't want this to get put aside until it was completely done, so I just kept at it.


And last Saturday, Brenda Papadakis was at Little Quilts! Here she is posing with my Dear Jane center section:
I really enjoyed having a word now and then with Brenda as I worked that day. Brenda is passionate about fabrics and mentioned several quilts of all types that she is very interested in making just in the little bit that we talked. I'm glad I got to meet you, Brenda!

Your Dear Jane is looking good. That's so neat that you got a picture of it with Brenda. She came to my quilt guild several years ago and was really inspiring.

And I am stunned that you finished Inca Gold! You are truly amazing, and it looks great!

How cool that you not only got to hang out with Brenda some, but that you could share your DJ with her!

Golly your DJ quilt is amazing- all that teenie work! I should think the Inca Gold pattern came as a bit of a relief/contrast? Its so bold and lovely to look at in a different way.

Your quilt is gorgeous! I admire anybody who is willing to sew those tiny blocks. I don't think I ever could.
