Sunday Stash: Happy Camper

I stumbled into Nancy's Quilt Shop in Winter Garden, FL a few months ago after my husband and I had walked around the Winter Garden Farmer's Market. Although they have a wide selection of fabric there were only a couple that really spoke to me. This camping fabric reminded me of the lining of a sleeping bag I used when my scout troop went on it's annual summer camping trips. I was feeling a bit nostalgic and the fabric had been discounted. In addition to Nancy's wide selection of fabrics, she also has a hefty array of clearance priced bolts! Unfortunately, my wallet was slim, and I didn't think it was wise to purchase these, marked down or not. Until. . .

About a month later, Seark and I were back in Winter Garden, this time scouting out some real-estate in the area. He knows me all to well and knew we had to stop back in. The American Jane, Happy Campers fabric by Moda was still there and still on the discount shelf. I bought up several yards with the intentions of making a couple of oversize lap quilts.

Now, I have to figure out what quilt pattern to use! Until then, these are going to marinate in the closet for a bit.

I'm linking up with Molli Sparkles for his Sunday Stash.


  1. Those prints are quite unique! I can't wait to see what you come up :)

  2. I love the comment - marinate in the closet - I have a bunch of things marinating…. :)

  3. My grade one teacher was ancient, and so were the readers we used in the classroom - good ole Dick and Jane!
    These fabrics remind me of the illustrations in those old charming and evocative of more innocent times. Fabrics that spark memories are fun to work with. I expect these will bring you much joy! :-)
