FO: Happy Camper

Here’s the last FO for the week!

Yep, I finally sucked it up, got the Happy Camper top together and quilted that bad boy!

If I’m honest, this is not my favourite quilt. There’s nothing wrong with the pattern – it was well written and easy to follow. I think it’s just too busy with these fabrics. Were I to do it again, I’d mix in some plainer fabrics. There’s just too much going on in this.

I did change things up a bit on the quilting – opting for what Mom calls “squiggle meander” instead of loops. Loops just seemed a little too feminine for this one.

For the back, I used a nice chunk of green checked flannel. Some nice blue binding from the stash finished it off!

Despite my fabric choices, one thing is certain, it will certainly make the campfire that much cozier!

  1. What wonderful finishes you’ve accomplished lately! Loved the sweater and agree, the quilt is good, but a little bit less chaos would be nice. But does it really matter when it’s the snuggle factor we are going for?
