Ocean Waves Quilt Camp

“The Perfect Get Away!”

October 18-21, 2012

 

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 best ever!

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!!!!!

CLASS DESCRIPTION
 

THURSDAY CLASSES
 

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 hanging!

 

 

 

SEASONS OF THE MOON * Victoria Jones

This gorgeous ‘skinny quilt’ makes a striking table runner or wall hanging. The fusible appliqué curved shapes echo and intersect for a sophisticated effect that I will simplify with lots of tips and techniques. Required book ‘Skinny Quilts&Table Runners 2.’

 

 

 


 

 

WHIRLIGIG * 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. You’ll use freezer paper for the foundation piecing so no paper to tear away 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 Blotzer

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.

 

 

FRIDAY CLASSES


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  * Victoria Jones

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.
 

 

 

TREE SKIRT OR TABLE TOPPER * Peggy Gelbrich

This design would be suitable for any holiday or occasion. It is made with six 10” blocks, bordered with flying geese blocks. If you have six-10” blocks in your color choice, please bring them to class. We will also be making the blocks if you do not have some already made!
 

 

SATURDAY CLASSES

 

MAGIC TRIANGLE * Sally Schneider

Here’s a quick and easy technique for making Shaded Four-Patch blocks by the dozens. When you are done, there are hundreds of ways to put them together. Explore some of these ways and receive ideas for even more arrangements. Class includes a fabric swap which is optional!
 

 

 

CONFETTI * Linda Peck

The possibilities are endless! You can use lots of scraps for a quick and easy quilt. The sample is in 30’s Reproduction fabrics (aka Depression Prints) but you can do it in any fabrics you choose.
 

 

MARINER'S COMPASS STAR * Victoria Jones

This table runner bursts with energy to beat away the dreary winter blahs. Victoria will share her secrets for the eye catching angled setting and tips for paper pieced perfection!

 

 

 

 

CIRCLING AROUND * Peggy Gelbrich

Create this dynamic circle quilt with ease. You’ll learn the technique of curved piecing sewing a gentle curve. You’ll also learn value placement and design in making your Circling Around quilt. These blocks are 7” or 8” using whichever Elsa’s Backporch Templates you chose. This is a quick quilt and can be made in a very short time!

 

 

TOP HAT SNOWMAN PILLOW * Kennette Blotzer

A chubby Snowman with black Top Hat and perky coal smile will add FUN to your winter and holiday decorating. A star decorates our Snowman’s hat and a bright heart and star dangles from his carrot nose. A perfect gift for you and your family&friends. Kit $40.00 - includes pattern and all supplies including pillow form!

 

 

Saturday Evening Show & Tell

Please bring your quilts, wall hangings or other related projects to share with your fellow campers. We would also like to have a few to  hand around the classroom for all to enjoy. We will also do a Class Project Show and Tell at this time. This will give you more time at your sewing machines to complete your class projects!
