Beautiful Colors in the NC Mountains

 

Travel – love it and am so glad that I am now free to do so. But this summer has been a crazy whirlwind! I flew to Chicago for a few days, then a week at the beach in Georgia. I enjoyed 4 days in the NC mountains for a quilt camp, turned around and flew to upstate NY for a special wedding. Now, next week is the Quilt & Sew-In in Blowing Rock, NC. I am so super excited and mostly prepared, but I’ll enjoy the anticipation so much more when I finally catch up on the evil necessity that is laundry.

Barn Quilt at Quilt Camp – Perfect!!

 

For camp I prepared a leader-ender project which is now in the finishing stages. I want always to have one of these projects prepped because sewing two quilts at once is so much better than just one! This is a scrappy block. A fellow quilter at guild had done one and I immediately had to have the pattern. I have bins of batiks so it was a no brainer to go with batik.

Sewing away at Quilt Camp!

Just had to get one block done just to see it!

 

Blocks all complete and on the design wall! The sewing plan for the day is to get them all sewn together with the “spacer” blocks, press, trim, and border. I am really, really pumped – can you tell?!

I want to finish this top today so tomorrow I can begin prep for the projects I’ll be taking to the Quilt & Sew-In. They I really, really need to get a few quilt tops ready for the long arm quilter!
