Review of my Summer Sewing Adventures!!

Summer Quilt Camp 2014

I am back with lots of pictures from our "Quilt Camp" along with pictures of my sewing studio.

Debby ( my college roommate of over 40 years ago) and I had a blast sewing for a week both in my sewing studio at home and at the lake house which is where this picture was taken.  

Don't you love our shirts?  She got them for us at a quilt show in Gatlinburg, TN this spring.    They were the "official" quilt camp t-shirt this year.

We started by making "3 yard quilts".  Three fabrics.  Each one yard.  Isn't this Friendship Star quilt gorgeous?

The fabrics make this quilt "pop". 

Debby with her first finished quilt of the week!!

I worked on a scrappy nine patch baby quilt.  

I embroidered the baby's name on the border.

Next Debby made another 3-yard quilt.  I don't have a full picture of it but it turned out great.

It is soft and very "girly".  

Two quilts finished in a week....pretty good I'd say!

Next we worked on table runners.....

A new fall table runner.  The center is made from a charm pack.  I found this kit at a quilt show and fell in love with it.  However the directions were terrible and very wrong in places.  It took patience and time to rewrite the directions but the result was rewarding.

Now for a look at my new sewing space.  I am not done yet.  Still have to hang pegboards and organize my thread.  I am replacing the big TV with a smaller one so I can use the bookcases behind it but for the most part I am moved in and I LOVE it!!

Two separate desk spaces divided by storage areas.

A view from across the room.

My quilting machine...Tin Lizzie.

The cutting area.  Just the right height for my poor back!!

A place to sit and do handwork or visit with friends while sewing.

My design wall.  I am so blessed to have this room to sew, create and enjoy with all my friends.  So come over and sew a bit with me!!

Happy Trails,
