Camp quilts and hats

This is my 4th of July camp quilt.  I used different patriotic  fabrics and the basic "Trip Around the World" pattern.  It should fit the bed fine.

 I also made this hodge-podge quilt.  We needed double size quilts for the bed in the shed so I made these two to take up on our next trip.  I used 2.5 inch strips for this quilt.  I had a box of strips cut from something I was working on about 5 years ago so I just put them together in this mish-mash design.  Not a "traditional" quilt but a quilt that will keep us warm non the same.
I went to the fabric store yesterday to purchase some fabric to make a quilt for my grandson.  Grandson #1 was with me and he found this dinosaur fabric he wanted a hat out of.  I purchased a yard of the fabric than came home and searched the internet for a free pattern to make a hat.  I have enoung to make three hats for my three grandsons and a bit left over.  I might try another style hat with the left over if time allows.

Well I better get to laundry and house work.  Have  a good day one and all.

May God help us save our great country.

Isn't it great when little kids pick out fun fabrics and ask you to make them something. I've made several hats for my son - certainly a useful item for summer days. I love your hodge podge quilt - great use of left-over strips from years past! I am sure it will be the perfect quilt for the camp. And TATW - a true classic - looks great in patriotic colors. You have been busy! Cheers! Evelyn
