Quilt Camp - Part Two

 Fun and antics at Quilt Camp! Marti and Peggy belt it out to "Mama Mia" 
                                          Cat woman? Quilting superwomen!

One of the neatest parts of quilt camp for me was the Quilts on Beds show. Each participant was asked to bring a quilt or two from home to place on their bed at retreat. One evening, everyone toured the bedrooms to view the quilts.
Karin's Carolina Crossroads (Bonnie Hunter mystery) 
 Karin's Christmas quilt (Carolina Christmas from Bonnie Hunter)
 I think this one was made by Louise. The pattern is Peace in the Valley by Silver Thimble Quilt Co.
 I know this one was made by Leisa. I wanted to take this quilt home with me:)

 Marti's quilt in Sanctuary fabrics by Moda for her future DIL.

 This is my Crossed Path quilt made with Sunshine fabric by April Cornel. One of my favorites:)

Cassie and Cindi's quilts.
Hunks on Pillowcase

The retreat continues as folks complete their retreat quilt. Also, Sharon organized a block trade with black and tan fabrics (she calls it the Rottweiler trade) We'll meet after the Christmas holidays to trade blocks. The above quilt is an example of a quilt that could be made with the blocks. She is challenging us to create our own quilt design with the blocks.
Look for Marty's quilt in the P. S.Goin' Sewin' booth at Houston International Quilt Festival.
Thanks Shannon and Sharon for a fun event! So glad that I finally was able to attend.
