Home from Camp

Yesterday we arrived back home from Quilt Camp at Hagley in the North of Tasmania.  Jo and I travelled up together and had a lovely time browsing lots of shops along the way.  Camp was full of lots of lovely ladies and lots of yummy food and a few glasses of nice wine. 

I finally got to meet the lovely Pauline from Calico Crossroads - We have been e-mail pals for ages and it was so lovely to finally meet her - Take my word for it she is a real doll and her shop is gorgeous.  I had a lovely time and we have already booked in for next year and intend to go for an extra day in 2011.  I can't wait !  A huge thanks to Sarah and Cathy for organising it all.

Have you joined Helen's Stitching around the block?  I am in a group with Peg, Liz and Vicki (who I met at quilt camp - She is just a gorgeous gal )  Here is my block which will be winging it's way to Queensland tomorrow.

I worked on a few different projects at camp including this post and rail quilt for Amy in gorgeous "Sorbet" fabrics.  I am not far off finishing the quilt front and then it will be off to Sarah for quilting.

Talking about quilting.........  I picked up my Flower Garden quilt at camp from Sarah.

I remembered to pack the binding fabric so was able to attach it.

Sarah did a beautiful job of the quilting it compliments the stitched and applique flowers.

The white on white fabric teamed with Bliss gives the quilt a lovely fresh look.

It is quite a simple design but very achievable for everybody.  I try not to complicate my designs and I like to think that they are quick and easy to make.

I will be back on Thursday with some more re-purposed items and I will show you some photo's from camp later in the week.
