I look forward to quilt camp for an entire year. The dates are already on the calendar for next year.
Packing on Thursday night was loads of fun. I am sure that the neighbors thought I was moving out. Last year, I did not have the fabric I wanted with me. That wasn’t going to happen again! HA! I also had all of the trim and buttons that I could possibly ever want!

It was a great time for inspiration, friends, and fellowship. It is nice to sit and sew next to a friendly face (or faces). It is also nice to take a break and see what everyone else is working on.
Friday evening is a special time for “show and tell”. My friend, Barb, took the pictures for me. Every quilt and quilter had a wonderful story. I will write individual blogs about some of them later. Some quilts aren’t in this little picture show because the pictures didn’t turn out. If any quilt camp attendees would like to share pictures, let me know through an e-mail. I will gladly post them here.
First an embroidered quilt:

I did not get pictures of the challenge quilts. We showed these in the morning at introduction time. We all had the same set of blocks. They all looked so different, but you will just have to take my word for that.

Thanks again to Susie, our wonderful camp director. A good time was had by all. I will write tomorrow about the project I worked on all weekend. Hope you enjoyed the “show”!
Have a great day!
