Three more Camp Coco quilts

We're so pleased to see the Camp Coco quilts come in! There's a need for all kinds of quilts all the time, but at this time of year the Central Illinois region is also collecting outdoorsy quilts to give to the children at Camp Coco. Thank you to everyone who has donated a Coco quilt. We will be collecting them through the business meeting on June 14.

Lorraine G made this very creative quilt! Do click on the photo to get a closer look at the frogs and trees and other delightful things she stitched into this quilt. It's a real treasure. Thank you, Lorraine!
Debbie D-W chose a lizard fabric as the focus for this Camp Coco quilt. It's bright and lively and lots of fun!
Here's a close-up of one of the red stripes she has on the back. Her quilting outlined the leaves and lizards on the front of the fabric and it makes for a very interesting back. I'm sure the child who receives this quilt will enjoy the back as well as the front. Thank you, Debbie.

Donna R made this adorable quilt with crazy trees and cute bears.

The back is woodsy, too -- she pieced it from several fabrics featuring different kinds of woodland animals. Thank you so much, Donna!

Camp Coco quilts from Marge P

Marge has been really busy lately! Not only does she label all the guild's Linus quilts (plus other Linus quilts donated by others who aren't in the guild), but she has made FOUR quilts for Camp Coco! Each one is different, too. You can click on the photos to enlarge them so you can take a closer look at the outdoorsy fabrics. Thanks so much, Marge. There will be four very happy kids this summer!

Strippy quilt

Martha A quilted pieced some cut animal strips together for this charming quilt.

Thanks, Martha!
