Can you tell I love sleeping!

I've been busy making pillowcases for the quilts I"m going to work on at camp! Well some others also! The tennis ones are for my daughter and her little sister on the tennis team. The batik and blue ones are fabric my nephew picked out and insisted he needed pillowcases out of them because the ones I made him a year or so ago are worn out. He picked the fabrics and told me what needed to go with what!

The brown snowman fabric ones are for my other daughter who saw this at another quilt shop and wanted pillowcases out of them! But the fabric goes with the panel quilt I"m making at camp. And the green Smore pillowcases are for me and go with another quilt I"m making at camp!

Last is the Notes from the Cat pillowcases I"m making my friend. She has 3 cute cats and her quilt I"m also working on at camp! But look below at the notes - they are hysterical!

Getting Ready for Camp - 2

Got fabric cut today for one more quilt to work on at camp! I won't give away how it will look, but the center will be this panel. I rarely do things with panels, but this just looked like a quick fun project.

And I made 2 really fun Smore Pink Pillowcases!

A little bluework

I got 3 more bluework blocks done while I was gone! I"m only 1 behind now! Aren't they cute!

And on this trip I finally got to the ocean! I went with my oldest daughter Holly and my 2 nephews and niece. We had a great day! I even saw a whole school (or is it pod?) of dolphins swimming by not far from the shore! Holly tried to snap a pic but they all turned out looking like sharks! There were about 5 of them! A first for me! The water was freezing, but I went all the way in with my youngest nephew. The others wimped out!

Eye Candy before I"m gone

Just thought I would leave you with this eye candy before I"m gone for 2 weeks. I"m off to watch my sisters kids and mom while my sister gets to go to Ireland for a week! How cool is that!

So here is the center of my Orange Crush! In a few weeks I hope to have time to get the borders on.

The blue and teal quilt is done!

And for today eye candy - the blue and teal quilt I made for Holly to give a very special friend for her new apartment. I just LOVE how it turned out! Oh and that is another friend helping me hold it for the pic - I"m hiding behind it!

Don't you just love the backing fabric and quilting!

Top is finished!

Here is my brother's finished top! It is off to the quilters now!

Smores Information

Several of you have asked what line of fabric it is below. It is Smores by Me & My Sister Designs for Moda. Isn't it wonderful!

And several of you have sent me questions but I can't answer because you have no reply for your ID, and when I go to your profile you have no blog listed and no email. So please forgive me if I don't respond. I don't want to bore people with how to set it, so if you need help let me know. And if your afraid to put your normal email linked up to it, open a gmail account and use that. I love gmail!

Hint #3

Well I think if you read my blog regularly, hint #3 kind of gives it away! But here it is! My mom bought this fabric for me to make for my brother for xmas. When he was visiting her house this spring he fell in love with hers that I made and mom said he walked around all week with it on! So she wanted to give him one for xmas.

Here is my mom's all finished, and hanging on my wall before I surprised her with it!
