Shoreview: Choose Your Own Adventure QAL

Moda Bake Shop Choose Your Own Adventure QAL Co-Hosted By Thistle Thicket Studio.
Oh wow, I am sooo behind! I had family come visit me at camp last week and so I put my sewing adventures aside as we enjoyed our local county fair with the kids and grandkids. But while I'm still trying to finish the last pieced border at Oda May's Summer Camp, Oda has moved right on past me and has posted the last borders today. Can you believe our time has come to an end for the Choose Your Own Adventure QAL

I chose Path B for the last pieced border and hiked with Jessica Dayon of Skein and Hook to Shoreview and dipped my toes in the water. I chose this block as it reflects the crosses in my first pieced border, kind of like a reflection in the pond at camp. Click here for instructions for the Shoreview block.

Here's the cutting chart from EQ7. There is a total of 48 - 5" blocks, 24 red crosses with blue corners and 24 blue crosses with red corners. The cutting chart is for one of each, so multiply those pieces by 24.

Squaring Up Half Square Triangle Blocks With The Bloc-Loc Ruler by Thistle Thicket Studio.
I rounded up the half square triangle squares to 3" then squared them up to 2 1/2" after they were sewn using my Bloc-Loc ruler. Much easier than cutting 2 7/8" squares!

Play All Day Panel Yardage On Thistle Thicket Studio.
I was excited to try out the 4-in-1 yardage that is a part of the Play All Day collection by American Jane for Moda. The yardage is broken down into 4 sections of prints with a cute tape measure dividing each section. I cut the tape measure segments out and will use them in some future project. 

Shoreview Blocks For Moda Bake Shop's Choose Your Own Adventure QAL by Thistle Thicket Studio.
Here are the two blocks for this pieced border. I'm still working on these blocks so I don't have them sewn to my quilt yet. I'm hoping to have my top finished by Monday when Summer Camp Closing Ceremonies are posted. Be sure to tune in, I designed a little surprise for that post and Moda Bake Shop is hosting a giveaway too! Until then campers, keep trekking!


P.S. Just a few photos of why I'm behind on sewing at camp - a Nana has to share a little, right?

Welcoming my little Texans to our farm. What a fashion statement - plaid shorts, crocs and cowboy hats! I made this quilt for Moda Bake Shop's Spell It With Moda. You can find the instructions here.

My daughter and grandson #1 on the ferris wheel. Our community owns our own carnival and all the rides and games are 25 cents! It's such a special time with family and friends!

Our little goofball, Grandson #2, riding the fire trucks. He had a blast riding all the kiddie rides while Grandson #1 enjoyed the games more.
