Yes, dear quilters, it's quilt camp week. If I counted accurately, there were 11 gals who showed up and plan on getting some project or other done this week.
Here are some photos of things we are working on.
By lunch time, Sharon had the top pieced. Looks pretty good, and our hope is that it gives her some comfort during this difficult time.
Other projects included Lyn's, who is making this wall hanging. I saw the patten, and it seems like I should remember it, but I'm not sure. (Whirlygig. That's all I'm coming up with; hmmmm...)
Another friend, Linda, completely unbeknownst to Lyn, is also making this design. She had just one block done, but look how different it is!!
Anita is a quilter friend that I only see at quilt camp. She's been coming for several years and always has something cool to work on. Today she showed us 3 quilts done by a group she quilts with for a family in our area who recently lost everything in a house fire. These quilts are for their 3 kids.
Sherrie's mom, Pat, has also come to quilt camp for several years. She is finishing up the quilt she started last at last year's camp.
Suzi brought 2 quilts. One was done for a Relay for Life silent auction. The second is the same pattern, but I don't know if it is to be donated or not.
Finally, Kay (the whirlwind of our group as she gets more done that all the rest put together!) was finishing the Amy Butler quilt she worked on last year.
Once she got that done, she got right to work on a project for her daughter and son-in-law using these fabrics:
They are cycling enthusiasts, and these will be waterproof mats - the bike fabric is coated with a plastic like on picnic tablecloths.
And in case she ran out of things to do, Kay, also worked on making a baby changing pad out of these fabrics, again with the vinyl coating.
Me?? What did I work on? Well, I was back at work on Long Road Home, and I plan to get a lot of it finished this week. Before that, though, I took out this little darling from back in December when I was sewing for Christmas.
So there you have it - the lofty plans for day 1 of the 2011 Quilt Camp.
When I'm not so tired, I will fill in details on how this all got started. Too far past my bedtime right now, and I'm falling asleep as each pic loads on! lol
