What's up @ Quilt Camp...

We had SEW MUCH FUN yesterday at Quilt Camp. Lots of laughing, eating, and {somehow} a fair amount of productivity!

Here is a peek of what went on...

Dawn brought along this quilt that she made and quilted. The pattern is Jelly Bellies by Miss Rosie. Dawn has a new long arm and I'd say she has the touch. I am not sure if you can see the quilting. Jackie decided we were calling this the "Rooster Head" quilting pattern. {Snort::Snort}

Nancy had this top complete. Wow, I had to borrow the pattern for this one in the June/July 2009 edition of Quilt magazine.

Sally was putting a border on this Drunkard's Path. All of these fabrics were hand dyed by Mary. {YUMMY!} I don't do curved piecing and I have tons of respect for those that do! Some day I just might get out of my box... literally.

Jackie put together these Chex Mix blocks from Atkinson Designs. Since I am a nine patch kind of girl I LOVE THIS QUILT. I believe I have a kit for it at home - purchased at the Chicago quilt show in the early 2000s. {Vintage?}

Speaking of vintage... Jackie purchased these antique applique blocks at the Chicago quilt show some time ago. She made the postage stamp blocks as setting blocks and whipped this together yesterday. Couldn't you just die?

Here is a closer look at one of the ladies.

Diedre put together this top. Again... I LOVE THIS! It will have an applique border when it is done. Early in our friendship I visited Diedre's home. She had a huge stack of unquilted tops and the biggest stash I'd ever seen. I have since caught on... and Diedre validates me! I love her for that!

Here is Mary's version of the same quilt. Mary spent a good part of the day cutting out a quilt that she will take on the On Square Short retreat at Fern Hill Retreat in New Glarus.
More pictures tomorrow... maybe by that time Theresa and I will have something done.
