Here's our very gracious camp host Eleanor Burns. She is so much fun and enthusiastic and such a cheerleader for all of us quilters. The four days of camp she is right there with us sewing and checking in on our progress and also entertaining us...introducing her new book, Quilt Blocks On American Barns, with a sing along to Old McDonald Had A Farm and Quilt In A Day staff and campers dressed up in barnyard costumes......TOO FUNNY!!
One of our afternoons we were invited to Eleanor's home for goodies and to have a look see around her wonderful home and studio........ooooooh, ahhhhhh!! Love, love, love that antique quilt on the table in her studio. A very pleasant afternoon spent with quilting buddies. I just can't say enough about this camp experience and if you ever have the chance I think you need to come to camp!!!! Thanks to all the gals at Quilt In A Day for the best time ever!!!!
Some more quilts......so many amazing quilts. The quilt in the bottom left corner is Dutch Windmill....a book that was written by my friend Annie who has worked at Quilt In A Day for 19 plus years. Annie and I met through the blogs and then when I went to quilt camp a few years ago I overheard her talking about having a blog and there we were meeting in person!! We are kindred spirits...it's kind of scary but in a good way and best of all she has become my own personal shopper, always on the lookout for fabrics I might be needing!!! Hugs to you my friend!
So I guess it's back to quilting up a storm in my head!!! Happy Friday everybody.
