important stuff

Quilts are a very important part of LIFE!
Even camping trips need QUILTS!

Not the precious hand quilted treasures....
Not the perfectly appliqued masterpieces.....

just.....
The simple.
The lovely.
The comfortable.

I found this quilt at a thrift store a few months ago and
LOVED the simple stitches...
and the COLOR!!!
(maybe I'll add some black ties in there
as I sit around the campfire!!!)

Camping trips need.....
The scrappy....
and....
The happy.

I made this quilt last fall using
corduroy and flannel.
Tied up with yarn!!!

Camping would NOT BE COMPLETE
without...
A QUILT!!!!

  3. I agree - sometimes a not-precious utilitarian quilt is just the thing... and I bet those quilts will end up being very special favorites years from now because of the memories attached to them!

  4. Agreed! For me, it is the drive-in movie quilt, the picnic quilt. Gotta have a quilt to sit outside.

  5. Are you sure we're not sisters? I take my quilts camping too. Nothing nicer than a quilt to sit on the beach and they need to see a bit of life, it will be part of their history. Love Froogs
