Camp Quiltathon Friday Recap

OMGosh … we had a great time at Camp Quiltathon!  Before the fun could begin ...
… the camp directors took on the task of transforming the Home Ec room into Camp Quiltathon!  Each camp table cabin was assigned a color.  A Northwind quilt block centerpiece was how campers identified their cabin!
Members received a name tag during registration that designated their cabin assignment!
The Camp Mess Hall is an important place for conversation and nourishment!
The AccuQuilt station … stood ready to assist campers.
Baskets of door prizes …
… and this sewing machine cover … waiting to be won by campers!
Everything was ready!  Camp Quiltathon Directors waiting patiently for campers to arrive!  Everyone received their table assignments and quickly set up!
Green Table
Yellow Table filled with Sunshine!
Pink Table
Lavendar Table
Blue Table
Once set up, we had a wonderful "Show and Tell".  

Next ... it was time for a traditional camp activity … Warm Ups!
Our first warm up activity was "Cord Keepers"!  It was a fun way for all of us to start those engines sewing machines and make a quick project.  The project instructions can be found here.  

Camp Quiltathon was planned to be a "loose ends" event … a time for everyone to work on a project of their choice!  

A lot of progress was made on projects of every kind!
Every camp must include a few friendly competitions … The Great Bobbin Race recorded how many bobbins each camper emptied!  You got to wear the "A-Bobbin-Nation" necklace after you finished a bobbin!  Too fun!
Friday ended with all that campers love … team building, show and tell, a group project, competitions, door prizes and an abundance of silliness!  Fun for all!
