I took it upon myself to ask my fellow "campers" to bring excess novelty stash, pre cut as 5" squares. The idea was we were going to combined fabric forces and made lots of four patches out of our novelty fabric, for children's charity quilts. It turned out my fellow quilters already had pre cut squares in their stash, so we worked with what we had, these are Jill's and are 4.5" cut, so they make a 8" block finished. Jill is a seasoned charity quilt maker and took this big pile home to make into tops.
Heather had lots of 2.5" novelty and brights, so they got pieced into four patches and then made into bigger four patches. I thought this was a great idea for those small pieces, but I must have given her too many compliments because she gifted me the entire collection! So now I have lots of spare parts to make more quilts....plus lots of four patches made, that need sashing.
This cute block was alos made by Therese, just a close up of the quilt you saw in last weeks post.
This was the boot packed ready to go..(going home it was far less organised)..there was more "stuff" on the back seat, so it is really lucky that I was travelling alone. I think if I ever want to take a friend I am going to need to buy a bigger car or learn to pack less!
Hmmm, I think the answer is just to go for a whole week next time, that way I could have finished everything I took with me! ;)
Happy quilting Sue.
