Quilt Camp Day 3

Today was our third day of Quilt Camp and and everyone really accomplished a lot. I took a bunch of pictures but I left my camera at the church so I won't be able to post those till tomorrow.  I do have a few more that I uploaded to my computer yesterday. This one on the right was pretty far along yesterday.

The one on the left  was this far along before lunch yesterday and she had the blocks all done and was putting on the borders today. This one has 2 borders and will be quilted by someone on a long arm for her.
One of the girls had to leave after lunch on Monday and I pictured her as being behind everyone the rest of the week; however, she really stayed focused on what she was doing and hers was the first one we layered up today. Here she is late yesterday with only one more vertical row of blocks to finish. She will be ready to start tying her quilt tomorrow
Almost everyone will be tying their quilts; we do not really have enough space for proper set ups to quilt 13 quilts and one week isn't enough time to make the whole quilt and machine quilt it.
We have been blessed this year to have more adult helpers. Four of us have been working at QC since the beginning and the second year we picked up Cathy (with a C when we lost a couple people, Debbie came either last year or the year before.  Gail, one of the new ladies in our quilting group at church, came to help us this year as did Lori and Kathy,two of the ladies from the Basement Divas group that I meet with once a month. Kathy (with a K) brought her sister Margie along. Margie came all the way from Madison, Indiana to help us.
 Kathy gave us all a little scare at lunch when she inhaled a bit of raw carrot. It all turned out all right but we were ready to do a Heimlich if necessary.
Come back tomorrow for more pics; there should be a few finished quilts to show.
