Wonderful Wednesday - Mountain Quilt Camp 2017 Edition

Welcome, once again, to another edition of Wonderful Wednesday!!  As you might recall, I was at Quilt Camp last week.  This week's post will go into greater depth about the Mountain Quilt Camp experience.  I briefly shared my own journey HERE.


Mountains on the horizon:



The campers are coming.  The campers are coming:


You'll remember this shot from my personal post.  What you didn't know is that the "photo bomber" and I have been quilting together for more than 16 years!  That's a LOT of years and a LOT of quilts, with the beginnings of another well underway:


Libby arrived first and save us some tables:



The "Speedy Piecer" is off an running:


Anne (with an "e") made a quilt for her new nephew's room, recently painted to resemble outer space so this will be perfect:


She's already working on his "big boy" quilt, as well:


Tiffany was posing while pressing:


The Greenville Seven was down to five during this year's Welcome Skit.  What's new Pussycat:


The dress code for the "Wildcat Lake Spa Retreat" was pajamas.  Our leader, Cath, went a BIT overboard with the curlers in her wig:




Day One and Tiffany has already completed a quilt top:



Jill and Brenda worked on Folded Fabric Stars:


Ta da!!



The eagle has landed:


One of the camper's patterns:


Mother and daughter shared a sewing station:


Fran is concentrating:


This is the quilt that Carolyn is working on:

Another mother/daughter pair of visitors from The Lodge have come to see what Mary Ann is working on:



Cath is showing Day One's "Make and Take" project:

She advised us to refrain from pressing the Pinwheels:


Let's stroll to The Lodge to see what the other quilters are up to:





Upon my return, I found the eagle applique...


... Is COMPLETE:


Later in the evening, Tiffany worked on her 3-D Pinwheel...



... And finished that, too:



Brenda finished hers, as well:



Good Morning, Day Two:












Afternoon field trip...


... Over the mountain...


... To the top of another...


... With stunning views...



... In every direction at High Country Quilts:



Libby was busy while we were away:


Look at this...


... She managed to complete the top of her Scrap Jar Star quilt:


One more shot.  With a helper this time:



Today's "Make and Take" project is a cord keeper:


I still need to make yesterday's project:



Tiffany finished her 2nd project sans applique stitching...



... And started on a 3rd:


Liz is working on finishing a class quilt:


Here's a look at how the quilt will go together:


Later on, Tiffany went back to the applique stitching:


Good Morning, Day Three:


I spent the morning sewing PINK:



Notice anything wrong with the following picture???


I did!!  Then my handy-dandy seam ripper got a workout, to help me fix my mistake:


A flat shot of Libby's Scrap Jar Stars:



Judy finished her 3-D Pinwheels.  Thanks for sharing your extra fabric.  Our projects look good with the added variety of colors:


Gail and Fran worked on cutting yardage from their charity bolt:


Pinky demonstrated how to make a Wonder Wallet:


These are the pieces to cut:


Applique is done AND borders have been attached:



What a wonderful selection of threads:


The zig zag really blended into the piece:














Quilt Camp Show and Tell:







Yes.  There was a story for each. I couldn't recall that much!








Hopefully, you enjoyed the pictures.






Departure Day dawned.  I sewed my last 4 seams and packed up all of my sewing gear:


I tried to take in the sights along the way...




... But the driver was intent on getting HERE:


Next time, we will only stop HERE, as the selection is far better:


Although, they DO have their Holiday decorations up already:



Oh, look!!  Selvage projects:



Goodbye, mountains:


Until next time...
Happy camping!!!
