Quilt Camp in Pipe Creek

A couple of weekends ago a few of us quilters got together for a “quilt camp”.  We met at a very dear friends house in Pipe Creek and she and her hubby were wonderful hosts.  (Although I will say the latter was scarce most of the time!  Can you blame him with 6 wild and wacky quilters on the loose in his home?)

The food was wonderful – Mexican at a local restaurant, take out from Rudy’s BBQ another night, this wonderful salad and casserole.  The last night was my friend Holly’s FAMOUS spaghetti, but sadly Marilynn and I had already departed and did not get to enjoy the feast.  😦

I told you we had great food!

A little sewing accomplished, Marilynn started and finished the Christmas top, I pieced 2 University of Utah Quilts - pattern Fat Quarter Frenzy, fabric and pattern purchased at Elaine's Quilt Block in Salt Lake City - I will be teaching there the end of July!

This Slim Flex looks like a great tool to mark even spacing for quilting.  And look at all of Susie's ribbons!

And just so you can get a feel for how peaceful and relaxing our time was there……

Sunset - we had most evenings so this was the best sunset I could capture, but the hill country sure does know how to put it all out there.

These are HUGE spiders that like to group together on the ceiling of the porch.  Harmless but look at those legs!
