A project over at the Moda Bake Shop

We briefly interrupt our regularly scheduled summertime posts for a new project that I am FINALLY done with over at the Moda Bake Shop !

I was Inspired by this tablecloth. I "inherited" it from my Auntie Ted. Isn't it great! A simple cloth with Ric Rac trim and signatures from her closest family and friends, which she later embroidered. See my signature? I'm guessing early 70's on my signature. My aunt was only 4 when she signed her name. Can you guess which one it is? So here's a little peak at what I decided to make! You must go take a better look at the Moda Bake Shop to see my Camping Quilt or Quilted Tablecloth. {I haven't decided how I'll use it.} I really like the weight and feel of it and thinking it would be a great camping quilt. I totally love how it turned out.
Remember the backing? It's the fabric that Randi over at Fresh Squeezed Fabrics just happened to have in her Etsy shop. (because I totally goofed and needed some backing badly). Phew.

So go take a peak and let me know what you think.

Happy Sewing!

Great quilt! Will you have people signing it like your aunt did with the tablecloth? That's a wonderful family heirloom.

Well, how cool is that! I love the bright colors of the 9-patches and the fabric. Can't help but have happy campers around it!
