Quilt Camp 2016

     Quilt Camp in Arrow Rock is my favorite time of year.  It doesn't get any better than May in Missouri, then you add in good friends, shopping and quilting and you are getting close to perfection.  I teach a Mystery Quilt class, so get to meet many of the participants.  We had such a wide variety of students this year with even Hawaii and New Zealand represented, as well as many mainland states.  As many of you know, I live in a historic village with lots of 19th century buildings.  My classroom was in the building known as Brown's Chapel.  It is a historic building which served as a church for the African-American residents in the 19th, into the 20th century.

Doesn't it look inviting?

    Here is the mystery quilt for this year.  I call it Village Life and designed it to use a layer cake with a background and a border fabric.  I used a Bonnie and Camille fabric line called Hello Darling.

Here are some of the others in various stages of construction.  There were several who got it to the flimsy stage.  

     I didn't take pictures until the final day, so not all of them made it into this post.  I'll try to do better next time.  
    This is our Challenge Quilt contest  displayed in another of the historic churches.

     This is the inside of the chapel with mystery quilts in progress.  For lots more pictures, see the Arrow Rock Quilt Camp Facebook page.  For information about next years camp, see
Thats all for now.
