Quilt Camp...

...in my living room. Mom and I have gone a little project crazy lately, since my parents are living with us temporarily while their new house gets finished. We've started a few runners and almost completed a baby quilt that I'll post pictures of soon. We're having so much fun!



Here's a new runner using an adorable charm pack of Sandy Gervais' Fresh Squeezed line. This fabric was a prize at the Girls' Reunion I attended several weeks ago. No, I didn't win it. My husband's cousin did. And she was sweet enough to give it to me. Thank you, Whitney! I just love those citrus prints! Does the pattern look familiar? My sister-in-law's cute fall quilt inspired me, so I used the same design on a smaller scale.

More posts soon!

Fabulous Fall Quilt Top

This quilt top comes from my sister-in-law JoEllen. I really can't take any of the credit for it, except for pressing a few of the squares for her last week! Every once in a while we get together and work on sewing projects, but busy lives and lots of kids makes it difficult. We really need to do it more often! I love these deep fall colors together, especially the aqua and gold.

Vintage Quilt Top

I got the borders on the adorable vintage pink and green quilt this week. For the back, I decided to just do a simple strip of coral down one side with white stop borders on either side.


 This one is getting professionally quilted. I can't wait to see how it turns out!

Vintage Quilt Project

My friend Jessica has asked me to help her finish this fun quilt project. Her grandma made this awesome polyester quilt top years and years ago and I'm going to help her finish it!



She found these awesome fabrics from Dream On by Urban Chicks for Moda. The plan is to add some borders and create a modern-looking back. I'll post pictures when it's finished!

Jacob's Ladder Baby Quilt

Somehow, I forgot to post the pictures of this quilt when Mom and I finished it last winter. I really enjoyed this pattern. It's made up of simple four-patches and half-square triangles, but it looks much more complex than that. This one went to my cousin's baby Penny.
