Camp Stitchalot! As I've mentioned before, Camp Stitchalot is a retreat hosted by Brenda of Pink Castle Fabrics and Rossie of Fresh Modern Quilts. It's held at the Hankered Inn in Pleasant Lake, MI. They're being held about once a quarter, so make sure and check out the upcoming camps!
Anna and I drove up Wednesday so we could check out Pink Castle Fabrics! We arrived at the Inn on Thursday and get right down to sewing! I worked on another mystery pillow!
Lined Drawstring Bags! We use Terri's add-on tutorial for the outside pocket!
Debbie taught us to make quilted potholders in the evening! They came together so, so easily! No binding and no turning under/topstitching! I used Color Me Retro for mine so they can hang in my kitchen! You can find instructions for making them on her free projects page!
Anna show us how to make her 241 Tote Pattern! I have made this one many times (here and here), so I didn't make one. See everyone's fabric choices made me wish I had brought fabric to make another one though! Check out this one Marcia made using Nordika!
Flatter by Soak helped keep everything smooth before we did some cutting on the bias!
Ashley choose a fuschia, teal and mustard palette!
Debbie went with deeper tones for her pillow!
Rossie added some fun patchwork and quilting to the back of her pillow!
Annika pulled colors from a special print that she used for the back of her pillow!
Debbie and Anna, and our hosts Brenda and Rossie for a great camp! If you live in the Midwest you've got to make it out to one of these camps! They're a blast! For more information on future Camp Stitchalot events, see here.
