Vintage Camper Mini

Hi Everyone!  Hope you all are having a great weekend.  Mine included some sewing time, so life is good over here. :)

My friend Cristina over at Pretty Little Quilts (hi Cristina!) is having a really great Quilt Along this summer called the Texas Road Trip Quilt Along.  It's a lot of fun - you should definitely check it out if you haven't stopped by yet.

I made the sweet camper blog she designed as part of the QAL.

The block finishes at 6" x 6", the perfect size for a mini, so I made up some complimentary blocks to go along with it.

First up were some 4-pointed stars.

Then came an Ohio star.

And then some flying geese to round out the group. :)

Next up was figuring out how to set all of these random blocks together.

I landed on a setting with the camper block in the middle to highlight it.

I really enjoyed making this little quilt!  You can find the pattern for the camper block here if you want to make one of your own. :)  Now on to the quilting...

Thanks for stopping by!

Stash Building & Sketching

Hi Everyone, hope you're all enjoying the holiday weekend :)  I've been a bit under the weather since mid-week, so I haven't been doing much sewing, but I did recently pick up a few fun fabrics to add to my collection.  Can't wait to feel better so I can cut into these goodies!


I did manage to get outside today and do some sketching though.  Yup, that's a sure sign I'm definitely on the mend - whew!

These little sketches have given me an idea... stay tuned :)

Hope you all had a fun-filled weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!
