Glamper Quilt

I found this darling quilt panel a couple of months ago when we were in St. George, Utah.  I fell in love with the “glamper” fabric and knew right away that I wanted to make a “Glamper Quilt” for summer picnics, afternoons at the park and to take to the ballgames!glamper quiltFor those of you that do not know what glamping is:  

Top Definition. glamping. Shorthand for glamorous camping; luxury camping … In the magazine “Mary Jane’s Farm” there are always ads and ideas for glampers and for glamping!   I would love to have a glamper…but not to go camping… I just want it for a playhouse!  :)  But that is a little ridiculous, so I will just dream about it while I am relaxing on my glamper quilt!DSC_6913Here is a full view of the quilt.  I simply added 4 different borders and some brown corners to make it a larger quilt.  Look at those big, fluffy clouds above this quilt…it is a perfect day to be using this quilt outside!glamper quiltHere is a close-up of the cute little “glamper”!  What fun it would be!glamper quilt back

I put a green polka dot fleece on the back, and because I made it a bigger quilt (75 x 75)  I had to sew a middle piece into the back to make it big enough.  I think that it is darling with this fun border across the middle!  I used the bright yellow polka dot for the binding and I think it is the perfect finish for this glamper quilt!  I did an all over stipple with a few stars thrown in the quilting.  This is a fun quilt that can be used over and over again.  It is machine washable and the quilting makes it very durable!  I am sure that this quilt will get a lot of use!DSC_6905Now I am ready for some summer picnics, ballgames, and afternoons at the park…with my basket in tow and this fun glamper quilt!

Do you have some fun “stay”cation plans for the summer?  I am hoping to get in some hiking, picnics,  firework nights and baseball games, just to name a few!  

Hope you have a great Memorial Day Weekend!  Thanks for Visiting!

    1. I would love to find the fabric for the glamping quil. Yours is so cute. Could you tell me the brand of the fabric panel?

      1. Susan, I am so sorry. I did not keep the selvedge edge with the name on it. I found my fabric at Ace Hardware in St. George, Utah, but someone else said they had it at Quilts Etc in Sandy, UT. If you do not live in UT you could probably google glamping quilt panel to find it. Hope this helps.

    1. Karen, I found my fabric at Ace Hardware in Saint George, Utah, in the fabric department, for those of you in the southern end of the state, but someone said they have it at Quilts Etc. in Sandy also.
