Quilt Qwazy Queens Blog Hop

It's a party and we are all celebrating "International Quilting Day" by showing off
 and finishing up our UFO's.
Oh they are not the flying kind...
It's the kind that we have stashed in our sewing rooms.
Those drat-ed unfinished objects we hide from ourselves.
What better way to celebrate the day, than getting them done!
I'm ashamed to say, my pile is so big...
bins and bags, and totes and shelves...
You've seen them here before, and I can't bare to share them again.
LOL!!
I'm happy to say, dug thru my PIGS (projects in grocery sacks)
and went right to work.
First finish is my Amy Butler camper quilt.
I started this 2 years ago at a quilt retreat.
Seeing these campers come together, kept us in stitches for 4 days. 
before they went into that dreaded grocery sack!
Amy's pattern had 8 different campers in it.


Each with so many different fun details.



I wanted to use mine in my camper, so I wanted it bigger.
 A game plan to add in 4 additional "holiday" theme campers was hatched.

Combing thru my novelty prints
I was able to add elements 
To bring each of them to life.
Oh, what fun it is to play.
LOL!!!
Topping off my quilt, is the the whole "fam-damily"!
HAHAHA
Tell me I'm not the only one!
(just kidding family)
;-)
This quilt is made on denim for extra warmth. 
I don't know if you have ever made a denim quilt, 
but they are incredibly durable and very warm. Perfect for the camping life.
Along with that, comes a considerable amount of added weight.
 I've found a QAYG (quilt as you go) method works best for me, when using denim.
Additionally, I finished up this quilt.
I shared my progress during Marians 
"Enter if U Dare" Halloween blog hop.
Yes, Marian...it's finished and I LOVE it!
Heck, now I'm a bit motivated to finish more...
:-)
A big thanks to Studio 180 for today's great give away.

  22. Someday I would like to venture into curved piecing.
    Those appliqued campers sure look easy to do rather than try to paper piece them.

  32. Love your camper quilt! It will look perfect in your camper!!! I would like to learn how to make more blocks that are three-dimensional, not with the application of embellishment but with machine piecing. I love Ricky Tims' flying geese block and would love to learn how to make other blocks like that!

  36. Amy Bradley's designs are just fabulous, I love the campers! A friend of mine made them last year for her daughter and her family and asked me to quilt it for her. It was so much fun discovering all the little details. I love how yours is completely different from hers although both of you started with the same pattern. Awesome job! And congratulations on finishing the Halloween quilt!
