Five of us went to "Quilt Camp"
in Angola on the Lake, NY
last week and went through lots of thread,
lots of fabric, lots of unsewing
and lots of chatting.
It's always fun to see what everyone is working on
and the projects are usually very different.
In my last post I showed the first project I completed,
along with my sister in laws big project.
One of the ladies loves scrappy quilts.
This year she was working on this paper pieced web
and it is gorgeous.
Her scraps are wonderful and I love the background fabric she's using.
She wanted to do something different along the edges without adding
a border, so she drafted pieces to complete the webs along
the edges. They look great and really give the quilt a finished look.
One of the other ladies worked on a kit she had and made this
quilt for her uncle. We all wanted to bring this one home with us.
My sister in law brought some blocks she had made and needed to add
the sashing and corner stones to make the top. I like this one a lot, too!
After I finished the tie stockings,
I worked on a quilt for a friend of mine.
I've had this fabric for a while that has a large design to it.
If I cut it up into small pieces, the design would be lost.
A month or so ago I found this pattern that is for a mystery block quilt
from Moda Bake Shop
and knew it would be perfect for this fabric I had.
Here are three of the four rows of blocks I needed to make for the quilt design.
I cut the sea fabric and the sashing strips
and put them all together into the quilt top.
The outer sashing strips and border strips need to be added.
This design really shows off the fabric with the sea life.
(There's a theme in my Hidey Hole this summer!
This is the third quilt I've made with sea life fabric.)
The fifth quilter was doing a lot of hand work and I didn't get any photos
of what she was working on while there.
