Take a Hike

Pow Wow Quilt with Take a Hike fabrics

Every time I look at this fabric + quilt I want to go camping.  And every time I go camping I realize how much work camping is and how much I love my mattress.  ;)

Take a Hike fabrics

It was really fun to work with these fabrics…they are so different from what I usually sew with, and yet so perfect for my outdoorsy family.

I sent this one to Kathy for quilting.  I love this quilting design because it adds some movement to the design but is still so perfect for boys.

Cutest backing, Pow Wow quilt

The back is my favorite print in this collection…it makes such a cute backing!  The binding is the blue campfire print.

After this quilt gets back from Quilt Market it already has 3 boys (2 kids + 1 adult kid) clamoring for it.

Take a Hike Quilt

The fabric again is Take a Hike by Dear Stella, available now at quilt shops and online.

The pattern is Pow Wow…it’s the 4th or 5th time I’ve made this pattern?!  All I know is I have a BUCKET of scrap half square triangles left over!

Pin It!

I was looking for crib/baby quilts on Pinterest last night and this pattern of yours jumped out at me, love it for it's brightness and many possibilities - including using up some stash.

Everytime I see this quilt it makes me want to drop everything and make one just like it. Your pattern plus those fabrics equals very cute!!

I've been needing a new boy quilt idea for boys who are "all boy" and this is a great one! Love the fabrics and the quilting design is a winner. Equally excited to see your fabrics & patterns while perusing Hancock's of Paducah. Cheers!

Love the quilt and fabric. Same goes here, everyone else likes to go camping. My idea of camping is a pop up or a camper, but it isn't in the budget yet. Oh well, guess I will have to rough it for a few more years.

I love this pattern and have it in my stash. Camping to me is a hotel, but be grateful you have a sweetheart and wonderful children to camp with.

Very awesome! I wish I could have that bucket of half square triangles! I know you'll have something wonderful to share that uses them all up. - Kate

Oh yeah, staying home to quilt - or renting a cabin - beats camping every time! Love this quilt and the pattern.

I also LOVE this quilt! The pattern and the fabric. So cute. I'm definitely going to make a version. So cute!!

Beyond cute! I love the white background. You are right, that is a perfect backing!!

I love this pattern so much! I made one with Backyard Baby as a baby gift for someone. For some reason I can't find my pattern but I will buy the digital PDF next time so I always have a copy in my pattern folder! It's a true keeper and it looks fantastic in that camping fabric. I can't wait to make my next Pow Wow!
