I work for a community college which is having a scholarship fundraiser that will feature a silent auction of donated gift baskets. I was asked if I would make a quilt for one of the baskets. Well, I went one step further by making a baby quilt, two matching bibs, two matching burp clothes and the cutest little bunny you ever did see (I guess that five steps further).
The bunny was a featured project on a great blog called All Sorts. You can find the tutorial here. The quilt pattern is called Charming Stars and I found the pattern on Moda Bake Shop. The MBS pattern was for a larger quilt so I used only nine blocks to get the right size for my baby quilt.
I made this all this at quilt camp. I love quilt camp. We go to Bear Cabin Inn in Show Low, AZ and are treated like queens by the owner Carol. Carol is a quilter herself and built her inn to cater to quilters. Basically, that means two things: lots of workspace and lots of good food.

I love quilt camp because I get to hang with my crafty peeps, because I have no obligations to meet for the time we are there, because I learn from my friends and mostly because the entire time is devoted to creativity. If there is a heaven, I think it will be an awful lot like quilt camp.Pin It
