Blogger's Quilt Fest and more

Amy over at Amy's Creative Side is hosting the 4th annual Blogger's Quilt Festival.

Here is my favorite quilt I've made so far. And of course it has hand embroidery work in it. It is a 'Bareroots' pattern, though I changed 3 of the embroidery patterns to more represent the way we camp. We VW bus camp! So I had my sweet talented husband draw up some buses for me and I substituted then in.

I believe this is my favorite quilt so far because of the colors (my favorite), the hand embroidery ( my favorite sewing to do), and the camping theme ( our favorite family time spent together).




In other news.... the progress on my Halloween quilt, the Jacob's Ladder one. Lots of orange and white 2 1/2 squares being sewn together.
October 'Little stitchies' is done. I love the pumpkins and the Fall colored leaves in this one.


The 'Hoopla' swap is on it's way. I've finished the stitching on mine, using cross-stitch. Here is a sneak peek. I am sure you can guess what she is. She still needs to be hooped up and the finishing touches up to her before 'send outs'. I'll be posting the finishing photo after my partner received it. I don't want to spoil the surprise for her.

I love this quilt! Your stitcheries are always beautiful and charming. I wish I lived closer and could go camping with you! It always looks like you have so much fun.:)

What a fun quilt! I love that you changed the patterns to fit your style of camping. And now that I know of this pattern, I just might have to make a quilt for my parents...they bought a pop-up camper and drove thousands of miles to Alaska a few summers ago! They've upgraded to a teensy hard-sided pull-behind camper, but they're enjoying their retirement and seeing our vast country, too. Thanks for sharing!
