Can I submit edited blocks? No. This is so beginner sewers don’t feel like they need special skills to participate. If you’d like to submit edited blocks, please consider Recreate Creatively
What is the difference between Camps and Recreate Creatively? The Summer and Winter Camps are for new sewers and quilters (those who have never participated with a Fiona Sandwich Camp). We discovered that seasoned Campers wanted more creative expression and new Campers were daunted by some of the prompts that are exciting to seasoned campers. If you have participated in 2 Camps (One Summer and one Winter), please consider joining Recreate Creatively
Are these prompts beginner friendly? Yep!! The prompts are designed to help you get started making a National Park travel quilt, grow your creative muscle and spur memories from your travels.
How long do I have to complete the prompts? All blocks must be sewn between Dec 1 and Feb 29.
Where do I find the prompts? There is a Field Guide in your downloads, inside your Fiona Sandwich account.
If you are not able to finish the prompts, just like the patterns, the Field Guides won’t disappear. They will be in your account forever and ever. If you have troubles accessing your account or have questions, please reach out.
Do I have to use specific patterns? You may use any Fiona Sandwich illustrated pattern from the State Parks, National Parks and Condiment patterns. Patterns that are not permitted: non Fiona Sandwich patterns, Park Signs, or Park Stamper Pin patterns.
Are patterns included with the Camps? No one wants to sew places that don’t interest them – where’s the fun in that?! This is a sew along where YOU get to choose what you want to sew. Download the Field Guide for specifics about the prompts, then select the patterns you want to sew! A great way to build your pattern collection quickly is through the Monthly Pattern Club.
