I"m Baaaaack!

Oh what a wonderful week! I got to visit with Holly a couple of days and took her out to eat (doesn't any college student like that on mom's bill?) and went to Linda and Laura's guild meeting Tues night! I had a great time. On Wed I went to Indy with Linda to pick up her SIL from the airport and then hit some quilt shops, with another dinner out at PF Changs - it was yummy!
Then of course was quilt camp! Oh so much to share. I"m exhausted from little sleep and lots of fun! But I thought I would share my first project with you. Above is a pillow case I made for a friend of Jenna's and then my Mystery Quilt to go with it!

Above is Laura's Mystery Quilt. She led it for the camp - it was so much fun to see how they all turned out! Below are just some of the quilts. Thats all for now, I"m beat!

Oh how cool! You did the "Pina Colada" pattern in the Fons and Porter July/August 2004 issue. Can you tell that I've flipped through it a couple hundred times? ;)

Does your quilt measure 60x72 too? Thanks for sharing all the versions... makes it tempting to try it myself. :)

glad you got to get together and have fun with a bunch of quilters AND spend time with your daughter.

All the quilts from camp look great! I love seeing how different fabrics can really make different quilts even with the same pattern. And yep, college students having lunch/dinner/breakfast with Mom -- always a bonus meal! Glad you had a chance to spend some time with her -- and that camp was a great expereince!

great mystery quilts, and quite achievable without using up your entire camp, Tracey
