First, I have to ask you for your feedback on the new blog format. Hopefully you will be as excited about it as I am. Now for the story.
Every year I host an event in my home for all the friends that can attend in June. It is called “summer camp” since I started by inviting all the friends that go to spring and fall camp, even though this is only one day.
This is the picture of everyone starting to mill around in the living room.
Lots of conversations ensue with the groups in the room discussing quilting projects and techniques:
Show & Tell was fabulous!
Linzey Joy’s hexie quilt in her tin.
Gail’s work in progress.
One of the projects I am making progress on.
Winnie’s needle case.
The wonderful bags that Judy designs.
Chris’ table runner.
Aline’s quilt, just back from Paris.
Rosemary’s quilt that we saw having in Paducah this spring!

Linda’s latest quilt.
Linzey Joy with the quilt she won at the Rotary in Paducah.
My umbrella created for the 2015 Women’s Journey in Fiber exhibit.
There were also teaching moments:
A lesson from Linzey Joy on stitching hexies.
A lesson from Chris on making a foot thong.
A lesson from Chris on using our favorite strip rulers.
A lesson from Linzey Joy on setting our phone fonts.
And then there was the food.
And we of course cannot forget about the deserts!
And for me it is not only summer camp but also a celebration of my birthday month. These ladies always make it a special time!!
