Quilt Camp

The last week in June we have Quilt Camp  at our church for the teens, actually for 6th grade through 24 years old. In other years we have had a couple of college girls that wanted to come so we raised the age limit. This is our 4th year and we have 11 girls, 6 of them returnees. We have 5 adults working with the girls and we are all returnees too. It is not really "camp" we are at the church from 10 AM until 3 PM Monday through Friday.

Tomorrow we are getting together to go over the lesson plan and we will all make a quilt top so we will all be on the same page with our instructions. I cut out my kit last week so I could be sure that the yardage and cutting instructions were correct. We are doing that much ahead of time so we can get the top done tomorrow.
I went ahead and made my strip sets and cut the blocks I wanted to make sure I had not done something creative with my arithmetic. Below are the blocks for 2 partial rows. The pattern is Warm Wishes. We like to keep it simple because most of the girls do not sew at home. I will post pictures tomorrow when we have our practice tops done. I am optimistic and believe we will get them done tomorrow.
