Summer Quilt Camp

Every Summer at Scottie Dog Quilts we hold a 3 day event: Quilt Camp. We fill the classroom with quilters (mostly women, sometimes a that rare and exotic creature: the Male Quilter). This year they were all women, one Mother-Daughter combo, all age groups represented. There was lots of laughter, meeting of new friends, great food and a chance to sew interrupted for 3 days.
Our project was an Aunt Sukey's Choice quilt ( see it left) and we all learned how to make a thousand (well, it SEEMED like a thousand!) flying geese with Eleanor Burns' Flying Goose Ruler. This made the job go much easier and each and every flying goose turned out perfect! I caught a few pictures, but then left the camera behind when we went out to dinner at Rita's. I didn't get any pictures of anyone dancing on the tables.....oh, maybe no actually danced on tables, but everyone had a great time! The quilts turned out fantastic. Each and every on was different and yet, each would be welcome in my home!
Quilt Camp is Summer Day Camp for Grown-ups. We hold it every Summer and also run Spring Fling of course in the Spring! Sound like fun? We'll keep you posted.
In October we'll be hosting our Fall Mystery Quilting Retreat. There are still a few open spots. We have quilters from all over the United States coming. October 17-19. Let us know if you'd like a brochure.
