Camp Quiltalot

Hello Everyone,

You have probably been wondering where I've been over the past week or two.  It has been a whirlwind of activity spent in the company of quilters from Susanville to Red Bluff.  My sister, Gail and I arrived in Susanville on Friday the 17th to Camp Quiltalot sponsored by Country Pines Quilt Shop.  Don't we look like the plaid sisters?

We immediately set up our workstations.  I had all of my little baggies full of partially made blocks for Country Romance.

Between teaching, talking and eating, I managed to make a big dent in this quilt top.

We had to delay our 6-hour drive by a day due to roads closed by snow.  We drove over Carson Pass which is a two-lane road and ascends up to an elevation of 8,600 feet. We were so glad when we arrived at camp.

I introduced the quilters to Lucy Boston blocks on Saturday and Sunday with two mini sessions.

Friday night, I presented a trunk show.

 There were opportunities for learning all around the room.

Kathy took my Grammy Squares class last July, and brought her completely finished quilt!  It was so well done and Kathy quilted it herself.

The following is just part of the trunk show Saturday night.  The room was filled with so much talent.

More pictures tomorrow of the amazing show and tell.  Both Gail and I decided we want to go back to Camp Quiltalot next year.  We met so many wonderful quilters and had the best time.

After I get home from long trips, I have a huge to-do list.  I've been filling the backed up orders, and doing a ton of paperwork.  The paperwork never ends.  In between all of this, I've tried to squeeze in a bit of quilting!



  1. What a wonderful time you must have had!!!!! Beautiful work by everyone and your Country Romance quilt is blooming!!! <3 <3 <3

  2. Looks like a great time was had by all! I love that the snack table had a label - in case you got lost!

  3. Wow! What a fun (but exhausting) time for you & Gail! It's always good to get home again, even if there is a lot to do.
