Just a few more quilt pics

Just a few more fun quilts from camp. These were samples of scrap ideas and some that were made at camp. I"m off to see "Wicked" today - I can't wait! The quilt above Linda's sister in law made at camp - isn't it wonderful! She had all the blocks made, but put them all together and the borders at camp. It is a HUGE Kind size for a wedding present! I really love the look.


This one was amazing! It is all 1" finished squares of scraps! Garnet brought it for inspiration - and boy was it ever inspiration! You just can't capture the beauty in a picture. It is totally amazing.

The below 2 quilts are antiques that someone brought. Aren't they great! I love that top one - it caught my eye right away. The one below it was really striking also. It had a really unique design. Oh there was so much to see at camp! I was in heaven!

Oh my - each quilt is just delicious. I can see how they would have been so very inspiring.
Enjoy Wicked. We got to see it at the end of July and LOVED it. We waited over a year from the time we purchased the tickets and it was worth the wait. I can't wait to hear what you think.

Breathtaking ! Lucky you for having such quilt camps ! I wish we had some, here in Belgium !

I have promised my bee to let them see your pictures, when they come, as many of them don't have the Internet.....

I love the first one - it would look great on any bed and men would like it too I think.

Thanks for sharing the photos Dawn. It seems like you had a fantastic time :)

Gorgeous quilts. love that postage stamp quilt. I'd actually considered making one of those, but never actually got around to cutting a 1.5" scrap from each bit of fabric..... that alone would take ages. thanks for the pics!

Thanks for sharing the quilts, they're beautiful. I can't even imagine making a quilt that big from 1.5" squares, that IS amazing.

Oh my! Inspiration?!? Overwhelming! Love Garnet's quilt. Did she share any tips or anything with you? How did she quilt it?
