-Quilt Camp! Does it count as my finish since I'm in charge of camp? Yes you say? Oh good. :) I had 55 kids in 2 weeks this year for camp, ages 5-16, and 3 different projects for the skill levels. Just typing that is a lot, but it was so much fun! I love having the kids come & make their projects start to finish, and seeing them learn about & love quilts as they do it. Click here for more information and to see how awesome the kids were this year! We go through about 15+yds. of batting, 20+yds. of backing fabrics, and a lot of white as you can see in the picture below!

-Christmas quilt: the top is finished! I had all the blocks together for several weeks, and wanted to make it a bit wider. While on vacation, Momm & I went to a quilt shop in WI and I found the coordinating blue plaid print on sale- a nice surprise. It's certainly Christmas in July with this finished top.
-Roman Stripe: Momm & I had a quilt day at home towards the end of vacation which was great. I worked away at making more of these blocks & love how quick they are to come together. I realized I'll need the quilt to be about 9 x 11 blocks for a total of 99 blocks! This is way more than the 56 blocks I was originally thinking, so I'll have to keep churning these out.
-Swap blocks: right now I'm looking at how big of a quilt I want with these blocks. Love how it looks as a large quilt, or it could be 2 smaller quilts. Not sure yet - stay tuned.
-Wonky blocks: I also made a wonky square-in-a-square using Quilt Dad's tutorial. these blocks are so much fun to make, can't wait to put them into a top.
-Swoon: backing fabrics purchased and ready to piece once I get some time. See previous post for details on this.
As you can see, lots going on here. What are you working on this week?
