I wish my grandma were still here. I would use the Southwest fabric and have her make me a quilt for the camper. I have lots of her quilts in my house. She used to make our old clothes into block quilts that were fun to get, so you could see your 9th grade homecoming dress and your brother's bathrobe in the quilt and remember.

For something like that camper fleece, you can make a really warm, comfy quilt with no sewing. Tutorial: Fleece Tie Blankets
Easy to do (you can even be sitting under it while you tie it) and if you buy fleece on sale less than $20 for a blanket up to 54 x 72 inches. Use the camper stuff on one side and anything you want that goes with it on the other side (also fleece.) I have a blanket like this and it is very cozy.

Thanks, Bobby. I have tied fleece blankets. I love how warm they are. We make them in our volunteer work on Pine Ridge Reservation. I sleep under a horse one right now. I have the fleece to make another one that is extra long, as I am tall, but I have not gotten around to making it. I have to sew it together to make it as wide as I want.
Do you know of a source for fleece that is wider than the typical width, so I can make blankets that are extra wide and extra long? I could not find one when I was looking.

Seattle Fabrics has blanket fleece 68" wide. That's as wide as I've seen it. Another option might be to buy a fleece blanket in the size you want and use that.

Coffee and quilts - perfect!

I just stumbled on this part of the forum goodies. I've been mostly reading about Scamp maintenance so far. Quilting is one of my favorite pasttimes. I teach adult ed quilting in the little town I live in. I enjoy seeing other people's projects. Have been pondering what project to take in the Scamp on the next outing that won't take up lots of space. It is an understatement to said I have plenty of UFOs to work on. I like any type of quilting and am looking forward to hand quilting. Love all the pictures of the different fabrics. I am partial to my scraggly old dogs and like dog fabric. The thought of drinking coffee on a cool morning under a lap quilt with a happy dog resting beside me is wonderful!

I grew up making quilt tops the same way,then put them on the frame hung from the ceiling and quilt by hand. I have made all my girls quilt tops from cloths that I made for them as little girls. No longer have quilting bees so they still are not quilted. Right now I am working on a bandana top for one of them,it is made from all of her bandanas from her Girl Scout days. Her son crossed the bridge from cub scouts to boy scouts so in each coner I am going to add his neck scarf from cub scouts.( DSIL suggested that) It will be machine quilted by her sister.

I like to make quilts and blankets that hold special meaning and I beleave this one will top my current list.

My mom did that, too- she picked a pattern for each of us when we were born and whenever she made a dress for us she cut fabric for a quilt block. Her goal was to finish all five quilts for our weddings- and she did it.

Burro curtains

This fabric is from Fabricworm.com. I'm planning to use it for curtains in the Burro. I haven't received it yet - 100% cotton. I don't sew a lot but realize I'll need to wash it first and will probably have to line it for privacy. Does anything else jump out as a concern before I plow ahead?

Hi Sue and Henry,
Your fabric is fabulous! A few thoughts...personally, I find an overall print on curtains can be a bit overwhelming in the tiny eggs. I have attached a photo of my solution. I kept the original curtains that came with my new Scamp because they let in light, but keep privacy. I made side panels of the print fabric. You might also want to consider using the print for 1/2 the windows and a light solid for the rest of the windows. Some people have expressed that cotton fabric may deteriorate in time due to the humid environment that often exists in the eggs. (the original curtains are made from 100% synthetic) You might consider spraying the finished curtains with Scotch Gard to protect them from water damage.

You may, of course, consider this advice or just plow forward and make the cutest little curtains you ever saw!

Happy Camping!
Gilda

Hi Sue,

Fun fabric. We haven't had water damage. guess I would worry if I wanted to keep them for 10 years! Scotch Guard sounds like an interesting idea.

"Overall" print looks fun.

Oh, I didn't like the curtains in ours as full as the original, personal taste. Prefer that they don't take up so much space. I like having as much window to look out of as possible and am often too lazy to use the tie backs I made.

Lining also takes up space and one doesn't need "double" the window width, they would really be full then.

Enjoy however you do it.
Nancy

I haven't had the urge to quilt in a while, but this brings back the memories of making "the camping quilts" - because there are just some fabrics you don't want in your house but are super fun...

I'm thinking the cowgirl look might be my 2nd theme...doing the beach thing for the 1st theme in my "new to me" camper I just brought home last weekend...great ideas everyone and thanks for sharing!
