QUILTING WITH JACKIE QUILT CAMP 2017
Quilting Camp provides a weekend quilting class with learning opportunities for both novice and confident quilters. This camp is different than a retreat where you work on any project. At Quilting with Jackie Quilting Camp, you will choose one of the quilts being taught and then work on your that project.
Quilting Camp is about friendship, encouragement through daily devotions, wonderful music (we will be entertained),relaxation and refreshment away from all the responsibilities of our home lives - such as no cooking or dishes; pampering with massage therapy and perhaps even manicures available on site. There is much, much more to camp than just the quilting experience. You will love, love, love your time at camp!
This year there is a choice of THREE quilts to make, all shown below. The patterns are offered in a variety of sizes to meet your needs and quilting skill level.
Careful, step-by-step instruction is given in a fun learning environment. You will learn techniques that will improve your quilting skills and Jackie will always be available to assist you between classes.

About Lake Ellen
HEXAGON GARDEN QUILT
This quilt is made with 2 1/2" strips, so "Jelly Roll" type bundle works well for it. While it is easy to put together, it takes time...lots of squares are needed to make a large quilt, but it goes together like a charm! Also, there are many variations to get your unique look. See the slide show on the registration page for lots of ideas of what can be done with this easy quilt. You will need to purchase a special ruler. Jackie will buy them for you in quantity to receive a better discount. Details will be available in the Welcome Packet.
ROOSTER ART QUILT
There is absolutely no sewing of pieces together to make this art quilt. It is total confetti-like raw-edge applique technique with thread play finishing on top.
See more explanation below picture.
I believe this is a very relaxing quilt to make and it is not very difficult. However, it does require a lot of different colors, so although it is small, it is a bit pricey to gather the wide-range of colors needed to create it. Also, you could do something similar with a horse or other animal you really might like. There are some additional supplies that must be purchased. You will be informed of these supplies at the time of receiving your Welcome Packet.
If you participated in the original class Jackie taught and never finished your rooster, you are welcome to finish it at camp. We prefer for you to spend the entire weekend with us, but if you did take the class last August and just need a little more time to work on it (and instruction), there is a Saturday only option available for you. Choose that option on Registration Form.
RADIANT STAR QUILT
MORE DIFFICULT - quilting experience needed to be successful - but not too hard - ask Jackie for her opinion if you want to make this quilt, but are unsure of your skills. See more explanation below picture.
This is not the hardest quilt by far, but it does require attention to detail, using scant 1/4" seams, and accuracy at each step. The results of careful cutting, sewing and pressing gets great results in this quilt. Most of the ladies that did this quilt at Texas Camp got the inside center completed at camp. They did not have time to do the borders at camp. This is a heirloom quality quilt. You will love yours!
