Last Friday we headed off for Prophetstown State Park. We were honored to be invited to Terri and John Reamer's Wedding. We attended the wedding on Saturday evening and then returned to the campground.
Sunday morning we found our way over to Brookville Lake to the Mounds State Recreation Area. Beautiful campground. Our camping group consisted of seven units this rally. It was our first rally of the season and it was good to be back with our camp family. The picture above was a sunset at Brookville.
Within a mile of the campground is Pohlar Fabrics. They are a Bernia dealer and manage to successfully get an enormous amount of fabric, notions, and machines in a small building. There were two trips by campers this weekend to the store. Jean C, Jean R., Mary B. and I went on Monday. Then Tuesday Jean C. got a baby blanket nearly all pieced with the help of all our ladies. What one of us didn't think of the others did.
Here is Jean C. sewing on her baby quilt. I can't show it just in case the recipient might be linked to this post. Suffice to say it is CUTE! Notice the desk she is working on. David Bartle made that for our camper! This was our first trip with it and it is great! Thanks David.
Wednesday, Mary, Jean C., Charlotte C., and I went back. Jean C. needed a bit more fabric. I found more fabric as well and Charlotte found irresistible finds too.
I returned home on Wednesday afternoon. Along the way, however, I stopped in at Sharynn's Quilt Box to talk about camping equipment and came out with a bag of fabric. I got two pieces of striped fabric....thank you Charlotte for inspiring me to finally try the 60 degree triangle ruler for the neat table runners and toppers.
Now there are just two table toppers and another runner that are awaiting layering and quilting. Love the way this turned out. The other runner is a tad longer and wider. I have stayed away from this project for at least a couple years. I finally got my mind set that I was going to do it and they turned out fairly well.
Today is Saturday and I made another Quilt Shop stop. Craft Town fabrics had an open house today....the first after they have closed the store front and just been selling via the internet. It was a great day. I stopped at Jean C.'s house and we went down. I came out with fabric for a young man's quilt, and more fabric for a young lady's wedding quilt, and a few more pieces that do not have specific spots at the moment but they just talked themselves into my stack. Their next open house is June 9. Same weekend as the quilt show in Salem. Great timing.
Happy Thunder Weekend. I had better go find the TV and watch the fireworks.
May God Bless!
