My favorite summer memory is when I would go to Camp Luellamay as a kid. I loved that camp and loved the activities. Went every summer for years, starting with a week and ending with 6 weeks at camp. I would love to go to that came one more time before I leave this earth!

Phyllis said...

My favorite summer memory are the family picnics with my mom and dad when I was a little girl. They most always included my mom's fried chicken,baked beans,and potato salad. My dad is no longer alive, so these memories are precious to me.

danih03 said...

When I was 10 my Grandma, uncle Frank, and I drove to California. It took 3 days to get there. We stopped at the Grand Canyon on the way. We stayed 5 weeks at Uncle Franks house. It was the best trip ever, but I did get homesick.

Rachel said...

My favorite bundle would probably be the Fruit Slice - Fat Quarter Bundle Entire Collection by Khristian A. Howell, not normally into fruity fabric, but this is pretty neat looking! Again, thank you!

Amanda Mc said...

My favourite summer memory would have been the last time we went out to the cabin in NW Ontario. I was 9 yrs old and I spent the whole summer out there with my gran and any other relatives that would come out for a weekend.

Amanda Mc said...

My favourite FQ bundle is cosmos.

Danny said...

That's so awesome of Julie! SO glad you get to sponsor a giveaway!

So let's see... best summer... I think that would have to be the summer after I graduated high school. My best friend and my family went on a two week vacation to California where we hit up Sea World, Disneyland, California Adventure, Catalina Island and shopping. Of course, shopping. Then I came home for a day to wash clothes and turn around to go to summer camp, which I always really loved growing up. Then I came home for 2 days, washed clothes, then repacked to go to Royal Family Kids Camp as a counselor. Then I came home one more day, washed clothes and went with my hubby (then boyfriend) and his parents to his parents' condo in Oceanside for a week where he told me he wanted to marry me! It was a good summer. And yeah... I was a young bride.

My best summer was the summer I met my husband. We both lived at the college dorms and my awkward, shy self would hang out by the dorm pool when I know he'd be walking by. I know, total stalker lol. Anyway he finally came and talked to me one day and 10 years later we're still together!

Ella said...

My favorite summer memory is the birthday present of a hoarded orange that my friend gave me while we were in Russia. It was my 16th birthday and neither of us that had citrus for a month. We shared it and sat there in the sun sniffing the peel. It was glorious. Like edible sunshine.

Melinda said...

So pretty! I've been thinking a lot lately about the summer after my son was born, watching him experience sand and open water for the first time. I can't wait to see my newest baby's reactions to those same things.

Janet said...

My favorite summer memory would have to be the trip to St. Thomas a few years ago. We had so much fun just hanging out at the beach and playing in the ocean. Such a relxed pace!

Jo said...

So pretty..lately i have been attracted to the orange and turq combos...and summer is my favorite time of the year. Nothing better than a hot Southern night.

Janet said...

Favourite summer - one when my kids were young and we had a hot sunny summer. We spent most of our time at the beach or the swimming pool, except when hubby was home from work and we would go boating. So relaxing!

Nancy said...

Congratulations on your 500th (and 501st and 502nd!) post!

My favorite summer was the summer I turned 16. My dad and stepmom gave my twin sister and I a used car for our birthday, about 2 weeks later we both met 2 guys (who were great friends) and we started going out with them. Had a lot of fun, and he treated me great! Summer ended, and it was back to real life. As much real life as a 16-yr-old had back then! LOL! I got older, and summer was just another season in the year.

mahoo said...

Favourite summer? The lazy crazy summer I started dating my hubby. I smile still, thinking about it!

iluvmybugs said...

My favorite FQ bundle is Poetica in Seafoam Symphony.

Karen Smith said...

My favorite summers were going to the beach with my family and boarding all day, then getting fish and chips for supper on the Pier.

Rebecca said...

My favorite Summer memory was my first kiss with my husband! I lived in California and he lived in Colorado and would visit his family in CA every Summer. The 3rd Summer he finally got up the nerve to make a move - we were 16 and 17! Now we're married with 4 beautiful kids. Best memory ever :)

B Greene said...

Rebecca said...

Since I LOVE orange, I'd have to pick the Tangerine Tango bundle as my favorite... if I HAVE to pick only one :)

Cindy said...

Best summer? I think that would be the first one my family lived through in Texas. We had just relocated to Dallas, after living for generations in a small town in NJ. None of us knew any one and we spent the long hot days watching old movies followed by leasurely evenings of swimming and eating nachos. There was a wonderful feeling of peace to the whole summer.

Swedish Scrapper said...

I also folloe Julie at Intrepid Thread. I still am highly enamored of her bundle From Cream to Curry-- Delicious!

Cindy said...

And, yes, I am a very happy follower of your ramblings.

Martina said...

I love woodland tails in blue! So sweet!

Swedish Scrapper said...

One of my favorite summer memories was one of those that had a Lunar eclipse. It was really hot outside, and all the neighbor kids stayed up late, running back and forth on the melting asphalt to our houses, waiting for and "watching" the eclipse!

Karen Smith said...

It was a hard decision, but I have to say that the Flock fat quarter bundle by Thomas Knauer is a top choice. So pretty.

Cindy said...

Impressions in Purple and Citrus jumped off of the screne and shook my hand, so i guess that is my favorite.

Deb said...

I have lots of fabulous summer memories, most of them centred around the beach. We head to the beach every summer for as long as we can, so every year is a favorite summer!! I just love being by the waves, the sand and the sun!

Pat said...

Congrats on 500 blogs. I am now a follower.

Deb said...

Deb said...

My fav bundle from Julie's shop is Poetica...love all the colours but especially the Seafoam

Mom C said...

I follow. Thanks

OhioMomPatriot said...

My favorite summer was the first summer I had a car of my own. I would pile all my friends in it and we would drive to Disneyland for a couple days.

Jean said...

Congratulations on your 500th post. Favorite summer memory - 2 weeks at my great-uncle's cabin by a lake. There was no tv but we always had great fun - my grandfather always made sure of that!

Nancy said...

I love Tangerine Tango!

OhioMomPatriot said...

I follow you. Thanks for a sweet giveaway!

karamino said...

Lyn said...

I am a follower of your blog, Julie's shop is awesome!

Mom C said...

Too many summers to find just one memory. We always have great times. But there was the summer I spent 6 weeks touring Europe with my family and 6 weeks after that getting married. Although my sisters say I was a bore on the trip, (always mooning around) I have great memories and then, well, all I can say is we're looking at 43 years of wedded bliss this summer.Yup, it was a great summer! Thanks for the trip down memory land.

Kathy MacKie said...

Best summer so far is when we retired and moved here. It is so beautiful and we fell in love with the island the first time we visited it.

Cecilia said...

I remember the year we spent a week camping in The Great Smokry Mountains with our three kids. Another family from church camped with us and we all enjoyed it so much. Thanks for the great giveaway.

Monika said...

Such lovely fabrics!!
A great summer I had in the year of my last exam :) yeah - thinking that this had been the last time of fearing exams - ha - didn´t know that almost 20 years later I will have another one:)

Cecilia said...

My current favorite bundle would have to be Vintage Modern.

Mom C said...

My problem with fat quarters is I just love to look at them and run my hands over them. It takes something to cut into them because them they will be gone and I won't have any more eye candy. So I love all the collections. But if I were choosing I love Cosmos Vermillion and Power Pop. Love that yellow. Thanks.

Kathy MacKie said...

I love cool breeze and congrat's on your 500 post, thanks so much for the awesome giveaway.

TexPat said...

I'm now a follower of your blog. Congrats on 500+ posts!

Deborah A said...

My favorite summer is the summer of 2009. It is my most cherished and most devastating. My dad had terminal cancer and I got to spend every day with him, we got to know each other on such a deep level and he got to see me as a grown woman instead of always seeing me as his little girl. I will always cherish this time. He sadly passed mid summer and he told me he would talk to me every day. Even though I don't hear his actual voice I know he beside me everyday.

TexPat said...

My favorite summer is when I went to California to visit my youngest daughter...I fell in love with San Francisco!!

Lisa Blyth said...

What a gorgeous bundle! Julie is my favorite fabric lady! My most cherished summer memory is the summer I spent taking day trips on horseback through the Porcupine Hills of southern Alberta (our home) with my father and having his undivided attention and basking in the joy of listening to his stories of the cowboy life.

MB in MI said...

MB in MI said...

Best summer memories were at the family cottage swimming and learning to waterski!! thanks for this chance to win the beautiful fabric.

I have wanted the woodland trails bundle.

I think the hose fight with the Mr. last summer was great while we were washing the cars.

Jessica said...

congrats on 500! I loved the Disney vacation I took with my family and now-fiance, a couple of years ago.

Lesley said...

My favourite summer is all of them! Warm weather and family visits happen every summer! Love them all!
