As summer goes flying by, here’s something to look forward to for fall! As always, I’m excited to have   another quilting retreat with you guys at the beautiful Penn York Camp!  I’m doing something a bit different this time; I’m giving you a choice to make 1 of 2 different designs. You can choose the Sunflower Meadow as promised or you can choose the Red Truck that I’ve created just for the occasion! Both use some of the same techniques. The main difference is in the borders. The sunflower has a pieced saw tooth border and the red truck has just regular stripped borders. Either way you’re going to love it!!.

Reminder: you need to bring your own bedding and towels.  These are not furnished by the camp.

Registration is at 4:00 on Friday (please plan to arrive not more than 30 minutes early)   I prefer not to start until all participants have arrived.  However if you know you will be late, please let me know and we will help you catch up when you arrive.

If you’re coming with a friend, when you register you need to specify who it is you want to room with.

NEW--When you register please check which pattern you want so I can make sure I have enough

As always registration & payment is through Penn-York Camp  pennyork.com (you can find us under events) or call 814-848-9811 Any questions concerning the quilt, contact me at 814-274-7691, e-mail quiltersheaven2@zitomedia.net or Facebook at Penn York Camp Quilters Retreat.

Looking forward to a great time together!


Fabric supply list:

*Background strips- Pattern suggests ½ yd-1yd of six different coordinating fabrics to be cut by WOF in  varying widths so they make a 56 ½” long            background….or a jelly roll.  (my sunflower has varied widths and the red truck was a jelly roll) either works just fine!


1 yd green for stems and leaves (I used scraps of different greens)                                       

½ yd of 3 different gold’s                                                                                                            ¼ yd of 3 different blacks or browns                                                                                         

¾ yd binding                                                                                                                                 4 yd backing

Red Truck

*See background strips above 

½ yd inner border 

1 yd outer border 

¾ yd binding

4 yd backing


½ yd red for trucks

10”x10” piece for doors

¼  yd black for tires

Scraps for wheel centers

Variety of greens for trees (about 1/3 yd)

Brown scrap for trunks

Batting for either design: approx 56” X 72”

1 ½ yd fusible bond for appliqué

NOTE: I have been using Heat N Bond Lite for most appliqué. However this time for the red truck I tried the Heat N Bond Feather Lite and I like the results, it isn’t as stiff when finished. Another option: if you just want to fuse your appliqué and not stitch around it, try the Ultra Hold. Disclaimer: I’ve never tried this so I’m not speaking from experience…only reading
