Marathon Preparation

I have a super duper quilt camp coming up in a couple of weeks. It is three whole days of major piecing. I go to 4 camps a year and that is really the only time I get to make quilts of my own. Last week I got 3 quilts pieced and my goal is to get 4 more done at this camp. To really get a lot accomplished, I precut and do a little small block piecing and organize in drawers. That way, when I get to camp, I just open a drawer and start right in. So, Saturday and Sunday, I just cut out all my projects. Now I've got to get in quilting mode and do a major push on customer quilts. I have a goal of 7 this week.

The first project is another quilt made off Judy Laquidara's Connect the Dots Mystery, only with it being no mystery and using my colors.

The next project will be an Atkinson design called Daisy Chain using scrap 30's prints.

Thirdly, I will make this Celtic type chain quilt from Scrapbasket Sensations.

And finally, this little wall hanging pattern that my daughter gave me for my birthday from West Virginia where she and her husband lived for a short time designed by a local woman there.


  1. I'm very envious that you're all ready for camp. I haven't even begun to think about what to take.

  2. I think it's great that you have the opportunity to have quilt camp. None of the shops or guilds around here do this. How many days do you go for?

  3. Can't wait for camp. Already have my van half way packed with projects. See ya in 12 days. Love your projects...
