I"m getting ready for camp!!!!

Well I should be getting ready for camp anyway! I"ve been working on odds and ends all weekend to get ready for camp. #1 project is my liberated log cabins which I had really wanted to have quilted by then for inspiration. Well I got the trapunto all quilted and around, but now I need to fill in around it - so it isn't going to happen. Guess they will see it as a safari project - "sew-fari" so-goodie!


But I did get month 4 done on my primitive houses quilt! OK, so I didn't need to get this done for camp, but I got it in the mail the other day and had to do something fun! Above is the month 4 section and that is added onto months 1 & 2. I haven't sew month 3 yet, but that goes in the next row anyway.


But for camp I did have to make a snowman block for a block exchange. The theme is Snowbound, and the snowball block is kind of the theme block. So here is my snowman for the drawing. Isn't he cute! I hope the ladies like him. I can't wait to see them all!

Well back to getting things together for camp! I still have tons to do!

Have a wonderful quiltcamp!!! Be sure to pack all the stuff you need, and remember to bring the extras. I did, and the fabric I needed was back home LOL
Your primitive house BOM is beautiful. Have not seen this BOM before in Norway.

He's adorable! (The snowman, I mean) I really like the scarf he's wearing.

He IS a cutie-pie snowman! It will be fun to see what everyone else made for their snowman block too! Have lots of fun!

Also - I like your progress on your houses.

Cheers!

Camp sounds like great fun. Is it the three of you? Where are you going? Your project quilt is so pretty and looks great for using up FQs.
