Its that time again for Amys Bloggers Quilt Festival. Its so much fun to see what everyone has been working on all year.
although i haven't made many quilts, the ones i have made are all special to me. I have made one for my parents, one for my sister, and 2 for myself. Thats it! (i better get working on all those WIPS i have cut out!)
Here is my favorite so far! My "Happy Campers Quilt" i made this past summer. I used Moda's Happy Campers fabric line from a few years back.
This fabric totally spoke to me from my childhood. I grew up in the 70s, and spent summer after summer camping. How could you not LOVE camping as a kid? Especially on the lakes of Minnesota. Playing in the sand, swimming all day, digging for worms and fishing off the dock, campfires at night. Pure heaven! When i saw this fabric a few years ago i knew one day i would make that special quilt for myself. The panel in the middle is of a vintage camping scene. too cute!
I backed it in denim for those chilly camping nights. Its so nice and warm! I also chose not to quilt it, instead i used good ol' fashioned Yarn Ties. My grandma always made our families quilts, and she used the Yarn Tie method. It just gave me that vintage feel.
