Old Tippe Quilt Camp

Last week I spent Thursday thru Sunday at Camp Tecumseh for Old Tippecanoe's Quilt Camp. It was a wonderful time and I got quite a bit accomplished.

I worked on a Crib Skirt, Bumper Pads and a quilt for Robin's new granddaughter. Here's the quilt:

And the Bumper Pads:

Then I assembled a strip quilt that I started at the retreat in June in St. Louis. I have the strips all layed out on a flannel backed table cloth at the retreat and I just rolled it up to take it home. So, at this retreat, I just unrolled it and started sewing the strips together.

This Patchwork Chevron from Moda Bake Shop was next. I got all the blocks made and then realized in the instructions that it said, "The patchwork will not line up!" WHAT????  Have you ever seen that in the instructions. I figured that I could sew a 1" finished strip between the background blocks to make them line up. This picture doesn't do it justice. The fabrics are Little Black Dress by Moda and it's very pretty!

Never heard of a pattern like that, though have worked with a few that were supposed to line up and didn't.
