Quilt Camp 2017

Wow!!! HELLO to all my blogging friends !! Time sure does has been over 5 months since my last post!! I have been a busy girl but that 's no excuse. I really want to share all the fun recipes, quilts and travels that I have been doing but my good intentions never seem to result in posts. But never you mind my delinquent behavior today I am back and have lots to share!!!

So what has been keeping me busy.......

We just finished our 8th annual Quilt Camp at the lake. Debby, my college "roomie, flew in from WV and sewed for 10 days! She made two complete quilt tops plus an organizer!! More pix of those to come.

My friend, Diana, came from Baltimore to join us for her first Quilt Camp and and made the most beautiful Vintage Handkerchief Quilt. KING SIZE!!!!!! Impressive for a first quilt to say the least!

We worked on all sorts of are some of the fruits of our labor!


King Size Handerchief Quilt ready to be quilted!!

Monogrammed bags from the dollar store.......very chic!!


Paper pieced Very Tall Christmas Tree. I am going to quilt this and put 25 buttons on it for an advent tree for the grands. Each day in December they will hang an ornament till Dec 25 when they will put a star on top the tree.

Debby surprised me with an early birthday present. A beautiful star quilt in my favorite color which is purple!! It is so gorgeous!!! To think I taught her to quilt just a mere 8 years ago!!! Now she is a STAR quilter!!!! LOL!


Fancy pants for Miss Madison!!

Busy working on projects!!!

Food for the journey from Chef Sue. Nothing like a rotisserie chicken to help the hungries!!!!

Happy Trails,
