Quilting on the Prairie
I spent this weekend with my mom on our annual quilt retreat at Camp Comeca near Cozad, NE sponsored by Prairie Point Junction Quilt Shop. It is such fun tradition! I've been every year. And to celebrate 10 years of retreats, Julie (the owner) went out of her way with the gals from the Buggy Barn. Mom and I worked on the "Spring Fever" quilt fro their Certifiably Crazy book. This is a picture from the book. I hope to get a picture of mine taken soon . . . it is very different than this sample. I went for a "Bohemian" look with bright & vivid colors.
Here is another quilt that I felt in love with (and of course purchased the book) Knick Knack Patty from Crazy Dog Days. I can't wait to to give this one a try. I know several that would like this quilt! Though I don't think I will make it the full size, but instead will make it a lap size.
If you haven't tried this "crazy" technique, I highly reccomend it. Once you understand the cutting, shuffling and piecing you realize that the "complicated" looking designs are fairly simple - you just need to look at one segment at a time. I have several more designs on my wish list to sew.
