Packing For Oda May's Summer Camp!

Moda Bake Shop Choose Your Own Adventure QAL Co-Hosted By Thistle Thicket Studio.
Are you ready for Oda May's Summer Camp? The Choose Your Own Adventure Mystery QAL is almost here! Today on the Moda Bake Shop blog, Oda May is sharing what you'll need for camp. Of course there's the usual supplies - sewing machine, rotary cutter, ruler, mat, thread, etc., but she's also providing all the details on fabric too. So that means I can show you what was in this secret package from Moda that I shared the other day!

Secret Package From Moda Fabrics For Thistle Thicket Studio.
Can you guess? Of course, it's fabric! But can you guess what collection I chose for this adventure? Take a look.....

It's Play All Day by Sandy Klop aka American Jane! I just love her vintage feedsack inspired florals and bright retro colors. This collection was inspired by a vintage children's book and it makes me want to 'play all day' in my sewing room!

Play All Day Layer Cake on Thistle Thicket Studio.
This QAL takes a layer cake or two and some additional yardage. The amount depends on which adventures you choose at camp. Oda May's list of fabric requirements will be adequate no matter what adventures you go on. But here's what I'm packing for camp:
  • 1 Layer Cake of Play All Day
  • 3/4 yd. each of #21741 11 & #21741 17 for the last adventure path. These are 4-in-1 panels. You get four different prints in one color of yardage. I chose the blue and red colorways. I decided to use this fabric instead of a second layer cake. In hindsight, I probably should have opted for the second layer cake so I had extra fabric squares of each fabric for mistakes. I better measure twice & thrice before I cut, I have no room for errors!Eeek!
Play All Day 4-in-1 Print on Thistle Thicket Studio.
  • 7/8 yd. of #21742 13 for the outer border. This is the large floral print in orange.

  • 5/8 yd. of #31746 18 for binding,.This cross-hatchy rectangle print in blue will contrast nicely with the orange border and frame the quilt. (Is cross-hatchy a word?)

  • 4 yds. of #21098 41 for the background. I just love a swiss dot background and this American Jane Pindot is perfect!

  • 4 1/2 yds. of #21745 12 for backing. This is the square print in orange. Besides one small pumpkin quilt, I've never made a quilt with orange so I decided this was my opportunity to go for it.

Play All Day will be arriving in stores later this summer, so if you can't attend summer camp but plan to make a Choose Your Own Adventure quilt after the mystery is revealed, then Play All Day is the perfect choice for a scrappy vintage-looking quilt.

So get your bags packed because the first adventure starts in a week! Hope to see ya'll at camp!
