It has been kind of a stressful week getting my kids back to school. It's late Friday night and I'm tired, but I wanted to share with you what I finished this week. I loved both of these client quilts I got to work on!
Actually just a few minutes ago I took this adorable little patriotic quilt off the frame. It was made by Sherri. I love the clever use of the star fabric, and she strip pieced red and white fabric for the stripes. Sherri really liked the Starlets pantograph for this one, and she chose cream colored thread that would stand out a little on the fabric. I think this little quilt turned out great. Hopefully Sherri will, too!
Next up is a quilt made by Susan. This is the second quilt I have done for Susan using this quilt pattern. It is a Schnibbles pattern called Morning Joe. Wow, those stars just make me smile. I have to make my own one of these soon!
Susan chose the Hollyhock pantograph for her quilt and a green thread. The thread color really looks beautiful with the fabrics, and this panto is definitely one of my favorites. The design looks very nice with the fabric prints.
The picture above I took at an angle placing the star "on point." It is interesting to see how the pattern looks different with just a 90-degree turn.
Thank you ladies for having me quilt for you. It was fun!
Sherri and Susan both got the Summer Sale 10% discount for their quilting. It's not too late to take advantage of this opportunity. Click here for more details.
I'm linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts Finish It Up Friday. I wish you well on this Labor Day weekend. Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.
Here is the last quilt to be finished from QUILT CAMP. If you haven't followed along in my previous posts, here's a little background. My mom, aunts, and I worked together on making quilt tops over July 4th weekend at Aunt Brenda's house. We called it QUILT CAMP. We each made our own Summer In The Park quilt using the pattern from the Missouri Star Quilt Company tutorial. We had a lot of fun quilting together.
Brenda's Summer In The Park quilt is very pretty, and definitely a different style than the others. I think it is more contemporary with the gray background, elegant colors with the silver, gold, and black. The gold really seems to sparkle in this picture.
Brenda used a jelly roll of the fabric line Aster from Windham Fabrics and a gray solid for the background.
Brenda quilted this one herself on the Innova (yeah!!) using a pantograph called Camellias which is a large rose design. It looks great! She used a gold thread which shows up nicely on the front and looks beautiful with the gold in the fabrics.
Great job, Brenda!!
Well, I'll wrap up the QUILT CAMP experience with one last look
at all of the quilts together. If you click on the photos in this
gallery a larger picture should pop up so you can see them better.
There are our quilts - lovely and unique as each of us are. So many people have commented on how they wish they had friends or family to get together and have QUILT CAMP with. We are very blessed to have each other. If there is a QUILT CAMP 2015 I'll be sure to share it with you next summer.
It's not too late to take advantage of the SUMMER SALE on longarm quilting. Click here to find out more about it. I would love to quilt for you!

Welcome back for another awesome QUILT CAMP finish! This is Aunt Sharon's Summer In The Park quilt. I love the way it turned out, and I hope she does, too!
Sharon made her quilt with her own collection of blue and purple batiks and cut her own 2-1/2" strips. The background is a batik also with a creamy yellowish print.
At QUILT CAMP one evening my dad brought his hot rod over for a ride. We took some fun photos of the event, and Aunt Sharon really wanted to take it for a drive, but my dad wouldn't hand over the keys. Sitting in the driver's seat was as close as she got. I thought her quilt would look pretty good in the hot rod, too. The colors look fabulous together, don't you think?
Sharon chose a pantograph called Breath Of The Gods for her quilt and a light yellow color thread called Butter. The backing is a really pretty blue batik also. The quilting stands out great, and I love the way they coordinate together.
Sharon, I hope you love your quilt.
Mom and I think it is beautiful!
Look for it in the mail soon.
Anyone out there have a quilt top that needs some quilting done?
I would love to quilt for you!

Check it out! I won second place in the table runner category at the Butler Farm Show last week. I have never entered quilts in the Farm Show before, so this was exciting for me. I do like this table runner a lot. It is made using the Bejeweled pattern from The Quilt Company and a fabric jellyroll called Chantilly.
I did some custom quilting on it that I was very happy with, too.
If you like this and want one for yourself, check out my Etsy Shop!

I have so many quilting projects going on, but for some crazy reason I decided to start something new. I have the Hex N More ruler and have never used it before. I was thinking about what I could make with it. I also have some fat quarters from Art Gallery Fabrics Color Me Retro line. I have been looking at them for a long time now and could not decide what to do with them. So I got them all out and started cutting.
I fussy cut the jewel shapes to make these cool kaleidoscope flowers, added some triangles, and stitched them up into these half hexagon patches. They have been laying out on my living room floor and kitchen table now for about a week as I brainstorm what to do with them. Well, the brainstorm is over for now, so I put them away, and now my family will be happy to eat at the table once again.
Don't worry, I have other things to do, like catching up on my mystery quilt from the Little Foot Quilt Shoppe. I love a good mystery! It's not too late to join if you like mysteries, too, and it's free. Click here to find the directions. I will show you that project another time, but it is looking pretty. Aunt Sharon's Summer In the Park quilt should be coming off the longarm tonight. Check back on Friday to see it!
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
Today I'm linking up with:

Freemotion by the River Linky Tuesday.
I hope you aren't tired of hearing about QUILT CAMP yet, because there are still two more quilts to show you after this one! First, let me start by saying that Bonnie is my mom, so I'll be calling her Mom from here on out :-)
If you previously saw Alice's quilt and my quilt, you can see that Mom's Summer In the Park Quilt looks very different. It is so pretty, soft, peachy...
Mom was visiting Aunt Thelma, one of her favorite people, back in May. They went to a quilt shop where Mom found a jellyroll she loved - Mirabelle by Fig Tree Quilts. She used that jellyroll and some white background for her quilt. The backing is a solid peach she ordered from Connecting Threads.
I quilted using the Honeysuckle pantograph. I had this one picked out in my head to be the perfect design for this quilt (but I didn't tell her that). Mom came over to choose her thread and panto, and she decided on the same one I was thinking of - definitely the perfect choice! The thread color is a yellow called Cheesecake.
Aunt Sharon's quilt is going on the frame today, and Aunt Brenda needs to come over and work on her QUILT CAMP quilt soon.
We are having a lovely day today here in Western PA - great for hanging quilts out on the line!

Have a great weekend - and be sure to get some quilting done!
Last week I told you a little about QUILT CAMP - a quilting weekend together with my mom and aunts - and I showed you Aunt Alice's quilt. This week I finished my Summer In The Park quilt. I actually just finished hand stitching the binding about 30 minutes ago!
The pattern, again, is Summer in the Park from the Missouri Star Quilt Company. The fabrics I used were a pack of 2-1/2" Bali Pops strips in the Key Lime color collection. The outside border and binding is a coordinating batik. The solid sashing on the front is Kona Navy, and the solid on the back is Kona Celery.
I quilting this on my Innova longarm machine with a green thread using the Hollyhock pantograph.
If you make this pattern, you will have 6 or so squares left over, so you can piece them in the back like I did, if you like.
Well, here is another silly picture from QUILT CAMP. My dad brought his hot rod car over for a photo shoot. The quilt in the back is a prop from Brenda's quilt collection. The sun was in our eyes, but we had fun, and it was a sight for all of the people driving by.
Thanks for reading, and come back next week to see my mom's QUILT CAMP quilt. It is almost ready to come off the quilt frame.

I LOVE to quilt, and every day I must sew for my sanity!
