I had so much fun putting this quilt together!!! I just loved making up each of the individual houses and seeing my little camp come together with each new block. And of course, Moda's instructions are fantastic and so very easy to follow, making it all the more enjoyable.
I used a combination of three fabrics that were featured at Spring Market and that work so well together to really give a camp feel to the quilt, but of course, it is more of a "pretty" camp feel. I used Chestnut Street by Fig Tree Quilts, Sundrops by Corey Yoder, and parts of Olives Flower Market by Lella Botique. All three lines are available in shops now and I just love how wonderfully they all play together ;)
The Quilt Along started at the beginning of September so there have been 4 blocks released so far. The first block I dubbed as the the Ranger Station. It was so fun coming up with names for each of the houses to fit into the camp theme. And you can see from this close up that each of the "houses" have the name embroidered on them, and a huge thank you to my 2 SIL's for helping me out with the embroidery ;) You might recall that I am not so great when it comes to hand stitching ;)
The second blocks was released the second week of September and it is the Ropes Course. And you can also see from these close up's of the blocks that I quilted Camp Moda with an all over curl design. I love this design because it gives the perfect amount of texture without taking away from the quilt design at all, you eyes just flow right over the quilting ;)
For the Third Block I just loved the little mailbox out front so of course it had to be the Camp Post. And yes, there is a little bit of Applique in this quilt as well. But no worries, it is just a bit and very simple. Isn't that little bird just so adorable!!
And that is my Camp Moda Quilt!!! I will continue to share more blocks as they are released on Instagram and such, but I wanted to share the entire quilt before we got to far into the quilt along ;) I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to make up this quilt early, it really has been a favorite to make and a favorite finish!!! I just love it ;)
And before I sign off, I am sure you are all wondering "how do I get the patterns for this free quilt along???" We'll that is the fun part!!! They are all over ;) Each quilt shop at Market had the option to host this free quilt along :) You can find several quilt shops that are hosting it in the comments of the Original Quilt Along Post, and I found that one of my old sponosrs, Bear Creek Quilts is also hosting it. And maybe you saw yesterday that Moda posted another shop that is hosting and even has prizes for finished blocks!!! And you can always check your local shop as well to see if they are hosting this fun quilt along!!! Wherever you decide to follow along, just be sure to join in, trust me, you are going to love making up this quilt ;)
Thanks for popping in today. Have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!
Linking up this finish to Sarah's, Quilt Story, and Amanda's ;)
