Follow the quilted path...
It didn't take Mandy and I long to get our room set up. A couple of colourful quilts...
...some appropriate reading material and the room was a cosy home for the next two nights.
Silly me was so busy sewing, chatting, laughing, concentrating, drinking cups of tea and looking at others amazing work that I forgot to take photos of anyone. To get the idea you can visit Chris's blog, or pop over to these past posts, here and here.
It was a teaching camp which entailed classes on Saturday. In the morning we had a lesson with the lovely Ann who has a zillion sewing tips and tricks and in the afternoon we were treated to Chris's wonderful talent.
These are the blocks we made. Chris's Supernova Leftovers. As the name suggests, it's a great block for using up scraps and leftovers. I plan to make a quilt of these in different colour combinations using all my beautiful colourful Sis Boom fabrics.
Here's Ann's Machine Applique Flowers, also made with Jennifer Paganelli's fabrics. I really love how this one turned out.
I'm thinking a few fun borders on this one to make a colourful wall hanging. Such gorgeous fabrics!!
Saturday evening was full of fun and games.We had a fat quarter swap with a twist. If it was your turn you could go and take someone else's fat quarter if you liked it better. It's hard to explain but it was fun and caused quite a few laughs! Show and tell was full of amazing work.
Here's the pin cushion I picked in the swap. I love the vintage button and the fabric is gold and oriental making it look as though it's from far away lands! It came with a little fabric rubbish collector, very handy for a messy girl like me. My pins feel very glamorous in their new pincushion.
Sunday was heads down and sew, sew, sew. Making the most of the last few hours to finish our blocks or other projects. As always the time flew by and soon it was over. It all feels a bit like a dream now except I have 2 colourful blocks and fun memories as proof of another fun camp. I've already put next years dates on the calendar! A huge Thanks to Chris and Ann for organising a fabulous camp!!
