yep - this coming Wednesday i head to quilt camp at Palouse Divide Lodge. because of life last year i was not able to go this quilt camp.
i am sooooooo excited to be going.
i am sooooooo excited to be able to sew for 4+ days.
i am soooooooo excited just to get away for awhile.
i have been getting projects ready for camp. i am a total quilt camp nerd when it comes to prepping for camp. i like to have each project cut and in its own container ready to sew. which is what i have been doing with my free time for the past week or so.
Kate Spain Verna fabric that has been well aged. i had to do some pre-sewing of strips in order to get the blocks all cut out. this quilt uses a rainbow template. maybe that is why it has been sitting in my closet for so long....
my last bee block quilt top to get together. i did some pre-sewing here as well. i only had 11 blocks and needed 12. duh.... i hadn't made my own block.
Origins..... need i say more.
its not the quilt on the cover its one inside the book that i am making.
drunkards path blocks that i pre-sewed as well. i cut these awhile back (maybe 2 years ago) on a AccuQuilt fabric cutter. it was a set of fat quarters. i have 180 blocks and my layout is random. it might look like a hot mess when i am done or it might turn out just fine.
doing a simple pattern with this layer cake.
Bliss.... a pattern i came up with using a Moda Candy Bar. fingers crossed it comes out ok mathematically.
a bag or two
and another bag
pillow cases to go with my Tula Pink Stacks quilt that is being shipped to the quilter shortly.
bindings to get put on 3 quilts.
i have a couple more projects that are almost ready to go. i will post those as well. i always take more projects to camp then i can get done but i like it. it gives me options to choose from with regards to what i want to work on.
i have decided that getting ready to go to quilt camp is sort of like tailgating before a sporting event. you tailgate so you can enjoy the game. i prep for camp so i can enjoy camp.
