Quilt Camp Wrap-Up -- Monday

The 2013 Quilt Camp is off and running in a very hospitable and comfortable location. The Old Town Quilt Shop is hosting us, and as expected, the accommodations are wonderful. Spaciousness is probably the most notable feature. My goodness! We could double our numbers, I do believe!!

Since so much is going on, I think I will just post the pics and offer an explanation in the captions. No need for extra narration, right??

Anita is making this fun crayon quilt. I think it will be wall-hanging size,
but don't quote me on that! I will follow up.
Before I even arrived, Georgia had finished this block for the
Mill Girls quilt along that she is in. I love this quilt.
So after finishing her Mill Girls block, Georgia pulled out this UFO of a Stack and Whack project.
The floral is a Kaffe Fassett fabric. Looks spectacular!

Kay only needed to apply the borders of this very cool gray and yellow quilt.
It is a baby quilt for Frienzie Lyn's newest grandbaby, due soon!

The back of the baby quilt will be quite a treat for the eyes!

Kelly, shop owner, was binding this patriotic quilt. All the fabrics are batiks!

Linda had this pattern out of a magazine, and began it Monday.
She is altering the instructions a bit, but looks to be
well on her way to a great-looking quilt!

Here are a couple of blocks for Linda's quilt.

Not all the activity is quilting. Maria came with a project she'd been procrastinating over. The gray fabric is the suit of a recently deceased loved one. She had embroidery applied and is framing them for the children.

Here is a close up of the embroidered sentiment.

Pat is starting a blue and yellow quilt. The pattern is from a Thimbleberries book,
but you'll have give me a couple of days to get the exact name and title for you.

Sherrie is making a quilt for a recently married niece. This blue and beige/tan quilt will be a modern design. I will have to get the specifics before the week is out.

My own work on half-square triangles went very well. I had a stack of scraps of 3.5-inch squares. So I sewed across the diagonal and ended up with a lot of very pretty HSTs - I need a whole lot more, so stay tuned for pictures later this week.

My plan for this week is to attend quilt camp on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. DH and I have a date tomorrow in Columbus, and I still have that book to read for book club, which is Thursday evening. We have decided to meet at a restaurant in Chillicothe, instead of here at my house. So reading is what I must make time for! Yikes!

Happy Quilting, Friends!
