My mom, aunts, and I had what we call Quilt Camp back in August, and I'm finally getting our quilt tops quilted. Back in 2014 we had our first ever Quilt Camp and made some beautiful quilts. You can read more about that here. In 2015 there were too many scheduling conflicts, but we did it again in 2016! Camp is held over a weekend at Aunt Brenda and Uncle Dave's house where there is a lot of space, extra beds, and the food is delicious and plentiful. Quilt Camp isn't open to the public, but trust me, you'd want to come even if you didn't like quilts or sewing!
I custom quilted my mom's quilt. She said hers is special because she is "the mother." Since she is "the mother" I'll show you her quilt first and share the others in the coming weeks.
To make the tops we used the Creative Grids Scrap Crazy 6" template set and the pattern called "Cruisin Under The Stars" designed by Karen Montgomery (also looks very similar to the pattern "Sparklers"). I LOVE these templates, and I was pretty sure we could each make a quilt top in a weekend if we had our pieces precut and ready to sew.
Mom had a lot of gold tone fat quarters in her stash and bought the border fabric and coordinating green on a shopping trip earlier in the year. That border fabric is so pretty! I had fun quilting this one and experimented with some different longarm quilting templates in the border. I used a light golden brown thread on the whole quilt.
Thanks, Mom, for being my wonderful mom and letting me quilt for you!
Thank you for stopping by and reading and checking out my quilt projects. Please come back again soon! I'll be linking up over at Crazy Mom Quilts Finish It Up Friday. Have a good weekend and stay warm under a quilt :-)
This is me...
I LOVE to quilt, and every day I must sew for my sanity!
