Waves Quilt Camp
Perfect Get Away!”
This is the 21st Annual Ocean Waves Quilt Camp. Our camp
has been a great success in the past and we expect this year will be the very
Twin Rocks Friends Camp offers the perfect location for a
get away weekend. The ocean and Spring Lake are a short walk away. Great for
stretching your legs and getting a breath of fresh air. Our classrooms are in
Hadley Hall, Arts & Crafts, Meeting House and Macy Chapel. We have sleeping
facilities in Hadley Hall, Shorebird, Heron, Pelican, Sandpiper and Osprey. We
can house 4-8 quilters per sleeping room. Perfect for your quilt group. The
classrooms are sunny and spacious. The dining area is most accommodating and
the food is incredible. We will provide you with food, fun, food, festivities,
and great classes with incredibly great teachers. If you have never attended camp
you will soon find that food is our number one priority at camp.
Registration will start at 10:00 am on Thursday, October 18th
Classes will begin after lunch on Thursday at 1:00 pm.
You will enjoy three days of quilting fun and return home
exhausted. Continental Breakfast will be served on Sunday the 23rd.
We have some outstanding teachers lined up. In fact, many are returning from
previous years. You don’t want to be left out so sign up early, as class size
is limited. We are including pictures of most of the classes being offered.
Hopefully, it will assist you when making your class selections. If there are
fewer than 8 signed up for a class, we may have to cancel it. I am looking
forward to seeing each of you at camp!!!!!

EASY PEASY PIECED SASHING * Sally Schneider
Using easy techniques, we’ll learn how to construct 3 different
pieced sashings, and put them together into a wall hanging that will have people
“wondering how did you do that?” We’ll start with Ohio Stars, then add three
different pieced sashings, and see what other blocks look like in the same
quilt. The techniques covered in this class are folded corners, freezer paper
foundation piecing, and quarter square triangles. We’ll also talk about other
options for pieced sashings!
BERRY TART * Linda Peck
The block in this quilt usually involves
templates and lots of inset seams. Using fold over corners, we will avoid all
that and use just squares and rectangles.
YOUR LAND, MY LAND * June Jaeger
In this three day workshop, you
will create a realistic landscape of your favorite place on earth. We will start
with drafting the pattern, learning the paint by number technique using fabric.
You will come to class with your fabrics chosen, ready to work. Using fusible
web, you will have a great time reproducing your photo. This makes a great gift
for that special person or for that special spot on the wall. You will work off
any photo of your desired landscape and watch it bloom into your personal wall

* Peggy Gelbrich
Dig into your scrap bag for this quilt. It looks more
complicated than it really is. It’s a hexagon block, paper-pieced in the round.

from the seams. In making the block learn an easy way to create and appliqué
the center circle. The appliqué
border is optional. Needle-turn appliqué
is covered in class.
SCARLETT QUEEN BY MISS ROSIE * Kennette
2 Day Class - This fat quarter friendly quilt can be done in a
two-color scrappy look or whole-genre scrappy. It also has unique ways of
setting your blocks to give it a totally different look. As with all of Miss
Rosie’s quilts, get it all cut out and sew, sew, sew. It is a great design.
LAUREL WREATH * Sally Schneider
Use your luscious floral fabrics for the Laurel Wreath blocks in
the center of this quilt, then add the oh-so-simple Christmas Crackers border
for a fabulous finish. You’ll love the simple to
construct, never-fails-to-fit, Built in Border methods that Sally will show you.
MINITURES * Linda Peck
Learn some tricks and techniques that will make miniature quilts
easier to piece. You will get lots of patterns in class to choose from. Bring
your scrap bag or a stack of fat quarters and have some fun. This was an
excellent class in 2009 so here’s your chance if you missed it!!
STILL LIFE MACHINE APPLIQUÉ *
Create a work of art using simple freezer paper
templates to create the shapes and then using the zigzag stitch on your machine
you’ll stitch the appliqué together with tiny
stitches that will look almost like hand stitched appliqué
but done on your machine. Required book: More! Hand Appliqué
by Machine by Beth Ferrier for C&T.
SKIRT OR TABLE TOPPER *
