QUILTING WITH JACKIE QUILT CAMP 2019
ABOUT QUILT CAMP
Quilting Camp provides a weekend quilting class with learning opportunities for both novice and confident quilters. This quilt camp is different than a retreat in that you choose one of the quilts being taught and then work on your chosen project.
This year there is a choice of TWO quilts to make at camp, shown below. The patterns are offered in a variety of sizes to meet your needs and quilting skill level. Click on either of the two quilts to choose from for quilt camp shown below see the wide variety of options possible for each one.
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 at quilt camp.

Jackie has been sewing and quilting for many years, and is a retired home economics teacher. She is recognized in the quilting community as an expert quilter. She has taught literally hundreds of adult and teens students in quilt-making methods. Her easy going, thorough and patient teaching style makes it easy and fun to learn from her.
We will hold Quilting Camp at the Plover Boys and Girls Club. We will have lots of room to spread out and good lighting. It will be a very comfortable environment in which to make our beautiful quilts.
TWO QUILT OPTIONS FOR QUILTING CAMP THIS YEAR
STARS AND DIAMONDS QUILT
This quilt is made with SCRAPS, but in no way is it scrappy. It dazzles and shines just like a girl's best friend. This quilt has a lot to offer: #1 It is super, super easy and fun to make; so much so that even a first time ever quilter will be successful. #2 The squares go together rather quickly,. #3 It is made with SCRAPS - dig through your bins (quality quilt store fabric only!) and bring along then we'll "SHARE and TAKE" to multiply your possibilities exponentially; #4 There are so many possibilities of color designs, you are guaranteed to have a very unique and individually beautiful quilt.
If you select one of these quilts when you register and later decide to make the other one, you can change that choice up until I send out the Welcome Packets in September. Once you receive your fabric requirements in the Welcome Packet, there would be an additional charge to get different instructions. Thank you!
