Camping Quilt!

I just placed the last stitch in the Camping Quilt!!!  I can't believe I actually started this project last March!  The inner border is from my stash.  I loved how the dark blue complimented the plaid and stitched blocks.  It has small flowers in it and thought twice about using it in a little boys quilt.  They are not frilly flowers and I'll tell him they are woodland flowers if he ever notices.  So far, he hasn't said anything about it.  ;)  

I didn't hand quilt the two borders...I really needed to get this finished so I did simple straight machine stitching in the borders.  Perhaps this summer I can get it back and do the borders.  I'm really happy with the end result.

I can tick this one off of my January goals list.  I have a friend who brought me a Christmas stocking to replicate and make another one.  That will be done this week and then on to my other long awaited projects!

My husband and I went to the Road to California quilt show yesterday.  He saw a pattern for an Argyle quilt and we bought the kit.  The fabrics are hand dyed and are beautiful.  He told me tonight it doesn't have to be done right away.  I will have that one finished by next fall.  I'm exited to make it for him.  He is so supportive and gets excited over my finished projects, lol.

Vickie, that turned out just wonderful! I'll bet you are very glad to have this done! I know your grandson must love it so!

That Road to California quilt show sounds like it must have been wonderful!
