Quilt Camp Review - Part I

Sunday - Welcome to Cedar Lakes

Morning Fog on Cedar Lake
I was greeted at the Administration Building where I picked up my credentials and gift bag.

In addition to the Camper's Handbook we received a nifty screw driver/flashlight combo, measuring tape, and a cute pin that says Rippity doo dah!

I had time to organize my classroom before the evening welcome festivities.  I was assigned a space in the Craft House that usually serves as the cooking classroom for Future Homemakers.

Other than a little lot of noise from the freezers, the room was spacious and served us well.  After dinner we reported to Assembly Hall to be welcomed by our host/organizer, Peg Bingham.

Eight vendors lined the outside walls of the assembly room, offering everything from fabric to patterns, to notions.

After Peg welcomed the 200+ campers, a parade of quilts from home followed.  Most people showed completed projects from last year's classes, including Peggy who showed her finished Wink & a Smile from my 2014 class.

See how Peggy's sashing changes the look from the pattern!

Returning to Cedar Lakes is like coming home with hugs from old friends and nervous smiles from new campers.  I had two terrific classes with such pleasant and accomplished students.  More reviews to follow.


  1. Libby do you know where I may purchase the "Wink and a Smile quilt pattern? I have looked high and low and have found nothing!
    Thanks, Sondra
