Time to Sew and Sew.....

My time at camp is spent teaching and encouraging students, presenting demos, but I am also able to sew when I am not busy with my other tasks. I think you can see who inspired my "sewing time".
This quilt was one I had seen on another blog and just filed it in my "someday" wish list. How wonderful that I now get to make the "Oma" quilts that I have always dreamed of making.
This pattern was in a book that I won in a blog contest. I have had the fabric picked out and put away for that "special time". I just love the simplicity of the design.

What would we do without our "Moda Bakeshop"? This is a pattern that used one honeybun....I chose Oh Cherry Oh. Sew cute!
I actually started this quilt for my niece when she was expecting...and then put it away when we found out it would be a boy. Just had the borders to finish, and now I can't wait to quilt it. I am picturing LOTS of hearts and flowers. So sweet.
This block is for a quilt exchange I am in. My angel now has eyes and rosy blushed cheeks. I hope the sweet lady who will get this quilt will find joy in my block.
Another table runner...this one will be a gift. So that means I had better get busy with finishing some projects and not just starting new ones!
One of the fun things that goes on at camps are "mini classes", and this one shared a fun pattern for an apron. I made this one for someone very special....and the Scotty Dogs should be a very good clue!!!!
The week at camp went very quickly. My heart is full of remembrance for the joyful time I had. Home was the reality check....wash to do, a bit of tidying up the house ( even though Jim did a VERY good job of keeping things clean).
So while I was doing all the household tasks, I set up my sewing machine to make this bitty flannel jacket for Clare. I figured that when she wasn't being cuddled in quilts, she could snuggle in this softness. The kids are getting a bit worried about how many things I am continually making....but that is just the joy of being Oma. I can hardly wait!

Wow! I love everything in this post! I have to go find that pattern at moda bakeshop, I must have missed it.

You use my favorite colors and I just love the snuggly little jacket. You're a great Oma.
