Last weekend I went to Tamborine for a 4 day camp starting on Wednesday afternoon. I love this camp as everyone joins in the spirit of it so well & if you need some advice there are always several people willing to share their knowledge with you. I find I always come home with lots of good hints & tips. We also had to make a place mat to use for our meals and they were all outstanding but I will leave those photos for another post as there are quite a few.
The two quilts below were made by Sue W as were many others samples placed around the room to represent the theme of the camp, Tumbling Blocks & Hollow Cubes. The second quilt was just beautiful with the bows adding an extra dimension to it.

Above is the name badge I received and the little notebook cover made by Sue the co-ordinator of the camp. About 30 people attended and everyone was given one, all made by Sue. We also have a fat quarter swap and this is the one I received.
Below are photos of some of the dress-ups on Saturday night. I am in the middle of the first photo with my friends Chris & Liz. The colour theme of the camp was Black & White.

Below are some of the quilts displayed during Show & Tell on Saturday night. Blue Tie-dyed made by Carol, Wonky Donkey by Chris & Fairy Quilt designed by Natalie Bird and made by Jenny.
My quilt group enjoyed our camp at Boonah a couple of weeks ago although as usual it always seems to go too quickly. I took lots of projects along to do but didn't seem to achieve as much as I would have liked. We arrived Friday lunch and I left Sunday after lunch so just 2 days to squeeze in as much sewing as I could. I managed to get all the blocks done for my Secret Garden quilt, some blocks stitched together for my grandson's quilt and I started to cut out and stitch together the fabrics for my mystery quilt which I am doing with my friends from NSW, Chris & Liz. We are going to have a quilt reveal in September as in all 10 people are doing this quilt. The pattern comes from a shop in Canada owned by a relative of Chris.
Below are a few photos from the camp. We managed to put down tools and fit in a Happy Hour on the covered deck. Of course, we stitched into the night to make up for it as the photo below proves.

It is lovely to be able to go away with like-minded ladies and enjoy their company. We always have such a great time, I am looking forward to the next one already.
Till next time............
