Perhaps next year we can take the Lake Superior Circle Tour. I have always wanted to do that.

@Lana (Diego). I will say again. Your taste in fabric is extraordinary and I love, love, love the cushions, pillow and curtains.

Thanks Caryl! Miss you at Alumapalooza!

Confession time - all the talk about Singer Featherweights refreshed my long-time goal to someday have one of these machines. Last Friday, I just happened to check our local Craigs List for featherweights (yet again), found a white one in pristine condition for an unbelievable price, and picked it up on Saturday. Spent Sunday playing with my new toy, and it is DEFINITELY coming to Alumapalooza and all further Airstream travel from now on!
OMG - can't wait to meet you at Alumapalooza! We came in Tuesday and then drove home (dang snow days at school!) and will come back Thursday afternoon. PLEASE look me up. Our Argosy stands out in all that beautiful aluminum (sigh, someday...)

Congrats on your Featherweight! I need to get mine out and play with it. Haven't taken it out of the box since I got it.

Thanks Imgreenfield! I plan on looking for some longer poles for it on our trips, the tent poles are only 6' tall.

Happy Camper

I found something I think some of you are looking for. At least I think I remember someone asking about Moda's Happy Camper Fabric.

I found a quilt shop in Custer, South Dakota that still has some of the fabric. I don't know if she has any left on the bolt but she did have at least 1 of the following

Layer Cake
Jelly Roll
Fat Quarter Bundle
5in Charm Pack
Triangles (can't remember what Moda calls them)... I think she had a few of these.

Wounded warrior quilts

I know at one point we discussed having the "Quiltairs" do wounded warrior quilts as a winter project.
I came across this pic in my yahoo news. Notice the quilt across the soldier's lap as he is flown home.
