OPTION #1 Work on Your Own Project - $225 Do you have a project (or two) you just need some time to finish? Come to camp to work on a project of your own choosing, enjoy the company of wonderful women, relax, no cooking, dishes, and escape from it all for a couple days. Select "Work on My Own Project" when you register for camp.
OPTION #2 CARPENTER STAR QUILT - $250 Confident Beginner Easy to Make using 10" "layer cake" set
The lovely Carpenter Star Quilt is relatively quick and easy to make. It starts easy by using a pre-cut 10" stack set (or your own hand-cut squares). The blocks are made quickly, arranged on your design board and then sewn together. I predict finished in the weekend! There will be several border options from which you can choose and the sizes will be a 72 x 72 square or a 96 x 96 queen. View the different border options in the slide show below and be inspired by all the beautiful color combinations. Make yours uniquely you and for whatever occasion you need. Choose Option #2 to make the quick and easy Carpenter Star Quilt.
OPTION #3 DRESDEN PLATE QUILT - $250 (plus the purchase of two special tools) Relatively EASY or MORE CHALLENGING PROJECT depending on your choice of designs.
The Dresden is part pieced and part machine sewn appliqued in the method we will learn at camp. There are several options from which to choose. The easiest option is the one Dresden block. You can make a flower, a Christmas wreath, or a clock. You can add simple borders or learn how to scallop the outer border for an extra special touch, which would make an amazing baby quilt. Getting a little more challenging you can add more Dresden blocks and add some pretty turned-edge applique applied by machine. The most challenging is a queen size with a variety of sizes of Dresdens, applique, and more - this WILL NOT be finished at camp should you choose this option. I have really enjoyed playing with the Dresden Plate. It is so beautiful, not too hard, and just fun to work with! Chose Option #3 if you want to make the Dresden Plate Quilt. As a side note, if you chose the Dresden and make one of the easier one block Dresden quilts, you will finish it and have time to work on another project or finish one of your UFO's!.
