Complete your first camp activity below for your chance to win one of three packs of eight 1001 Peeps fat quarters. We’ll be back later today with a great tutorial surprise from Lizzy, so be sure to check back. Today is Lizzy’s birthday too, so don’t forget to wish her a Happy, Happy Day!

Hey, Campers! Welcome back to Peeps Summer Camp. In case some of you missed out on the fun last year, you can learn about it here. We’re all looking forward to an exciting season of canoeing, marshmallow roasting and sewing! I’d like to introduce you to our Camp Director, Lizzy House. Lizzy has been busy organizing the activities this year and will tell you all about the camp counselors. But first, let’s talk about the fabric!

Lizzy at Quilt Market, surrounded by 1001 Peeps.

Sew,Mama,Sew!: Lizzy, tell us about the inspiration for 1001 Peeps.
Lizzy: The inspiration for 1001 Peeps has come from a couple of places. The first of which is, of course, the Arabian Nights. The stories are funny and touching, and are told in way that is continuous and a little ironic. Which I love. The second being my need to tell stories. We connect to the people in our lives because of the events that tie us together; we connect to our ancestors because of the stories that are passed down to us. We connect to people who we don’t know, now through the internet, but always through film, music, and literature. It’s the stories that drive our relationships, and it’s that same sort of connection that we should be weaving into the things that we make with our hands. So if I create something with a story as a part of the subtext of my designs, then maybe that will spark something in your own creations. I’ve seen it happen with Castle Peeps, and I hope that the same happens with 1001 Peeps.

City

SMS: Fabulous colors! What is your process for choosing color stories?
Lizzy: I like to let the designs kind of dictate their colors. For 1001 Peeps, I wanted to go for times of day. The Purple is the morning, the Orange is the hot noon day sun, and the Turquoise is the sneaky night. But just like the story behind the fabric itself, I am telling a color story over the course of all of my collections. Color is relative, and you are seeing my personal color wheel unfold. 1001 Peeps starts to fill in the secondary positions from Castle Peeps, which was mostly primary. Just like the story, color is SOOO crucial to me.

Pearl Bracelet

SMS: Pearl Bracelet is back, right?
Lizzy: You can bet your sweet bippy. I’m thrilled. I always loved the pattern, and when Red Letter Day came out, I was still relatively unknown… So when I got a call from my Mom one day early in 2009, telling me to look on Flickr, Pearl Bracelet was essentially sparkling on nearly all of the photos I looked through that day. I was thrilled and as the desperate emails have rolled in over the years, looking for the blue or orange pearl bracelet, I knew that it made sense to give the peeps what they wanted.

You can expect to see at least 15 new colors of Pearl Bracelet through 2012. Which is what I want, to see it in a limitless range of color.

Peeps!

SMS: Walk us through the other prints.

    Peeps: The peeps are all characters from the Arabian Nights.
    The Royal City: Similar to the Castle Town in Castle Peeps, it’s home to our Peeps, or at least where they go to the market to sell their wares and daily catches.
    Scheherazade: Is based on a traditional Moorish pattern and it, in my mind, is just like the stories– a continuous round. It’s named after the story teller of the 1001 Nights.
    Illusion: Has an optical effect, and there is so much in the stories that is illusive and alluring used as a device to entice and or distract! An amazing thing about this print is that it doesn’t seem to matter which way you cut it and sew it together. It looks like you fussy cut it.
    Illuminate: I just love how sweet this little print is. It’s candles and lamps, and it also can be used like a stripe.
    Jewels: In the Arabian Nights, there is always treasure on the line. This small print is a new favorite of mine, and it too might just continue to show up to the party over the next year(s).
    Towers: These towers protect our royal city, and work as a fantastic border. I actually really like to use the towers as stripes by cutting them horizontally, and then using the surrounding fabric as a solid. It’s like two fabrics in one!

Towers

SMS: I hear you’ve written a book!
Lizzy: I have! It’s called 1001 Peeps: Five Magical Projects. It’s expected from the printers shortly! It has been quite the process, and I am only now getting any sleep! But the idea was to release a book of patterns instead of five individual patterns. There are four fantastic quilt patterns, and a crewel embroidery project. The book is beautiful, and the photographs look like we went to Nepal. I think you are all going to love it. It’s a win, win, win.

SMS: Can you tell us about this year’s Peeps Camp Counselors and activities? When and where should our campers proceed?
Lizzy: Each Friday, until the end of August, you will meet with your next camp counselor to take part in the new activity! With each counselor you will get a little peek into their aesthetic, personality, skill set, and interpretation of 1001 Peeps! Along with a great activity, each counselor will be having a contest to enter. So make sure sign the roll and leave a comment!

June 24: Alexia Abegg, Craftopia. Alexia not only has mad skills, but she is incredibly inventive.
July 1: Beth, Lemon Cadet. You are going to have a great time with Beth, she has an incredible attention to detail.
July 8: The Fat Quarterly! You’re in for quite a treat! Let’s just say, you won’t even recognize the Fat Quarterly.
July 15: Susan Allen, of The Quilt Asylum. These ladies are going to get you in trouble.
July 22: Amanda, MrsMcPorkchopQuilts. A dream come true. Her little touches (and stars) make everything she creates special and unique
July 29: Anne Weil of Flax and Twine is new to the scene! You’ll want to keep your eye on her. She’s got a penchant for kids crafts and knitwear design.
August 5: Heather Bostic, {House} of A La Mode. This wild lady will certainly liven things up. You’ll be glad you came.
August 12: Karyn Valino, Make Something. Karyn is an amazingly gifted maker of beautiful things, with whom you’ll take a day trip to Canada and end up who knows where!
August 19: Deborah Moebes, Whipstitch. One of the smartest people I know. You’ll love anything she does.
August 26: Monica, Happy Zombie. Is there a better way to close Camp than with your favorite and mine, the happiest zombie we ever met?!

So, Campers, are you excited? Three cheers for 1001 Peeps Summer Camp! The complete collection of 1001 Peeps is available in the gift shop at the lodge.

Before you head back to your cabins, you need to complete your first activity. Take a look at this fabric and name at least four of the characters (silly, creative, serious, Disney-esque, literary–it’s up to you.)  Tell us in the comments below. Three lucky campers will win a pack of eight 1001 Peeps fat quarters. Good luck! (And don’t forget to wish Lizzy a Happy Birthday!) Tutorial from Lizzy coming right up.

    Thanks for this fun!

  124. First of all, Happy birthday to Lizzy.

    As far as the characters, I will give them names from other famous characters in stories and legends throughout history that I enjoy rather than tie them directly to Arabian Nights stories.

    A. Woden
    B. Esther
    C. Pip
    D. Iago
    E. Gandalf
    F. Orpheus
    G. Antigone
    H. Sir Toby, Sir Andrew and Feste

    a. Adil (righteous, fair)
    b. Baheera (noble, beautiful)
    c. Cadi (Luck)
    g. Ghada (charming, graceful)

    Thanks for the excuse to look up name meanings, which is a total guilty pleasure. To keep myself from going totally overboard, I limited myself to picking from names beginning with the letter each peep was labeled with. Why yes, I am a nerd. Why do you ask?

  127. Sadly, I have not yet read the Arabian Nights, although it’s on my list. Therefore my guesses will be very Disney-esque. :)

    A. The king
    B. Princess Jasmine
    D. Jafar
    F. Aladdin
    H. These guys remind me of the guards
    I. Genie

    I missed last year’s summer camp because I was just learning to sew, but I’m really looking forward to it this year. Already got me Peeps ordered. :)

    Happy Birthday!!!

  128. Kim McM says:

    B is Jasmine, D is Jafar, E is the Sultan (aka my big turbaned tiger), F is Aladdin, I is the Genie (but not the I dream of Jeannie genie), H is three of the 40 thieves, and I don’t know who G is but I am saying he looks like an Earl. Not the royal kind, the redneck kind. If there is such a thing. I like how this fabric is teaching me about literature. Or Disney movies. Pick me!

  129. Jenniffier says:

    a. sultan john
    b. queen celia

  159. Colleen says:

    “You’ve had a birthday, shout Hurray! We want to sing to you today! One year older and wiser, too, Happy Birthday! To you!”

    One of my kids’ favorite books is Rimonah Of The Flashing Sword (Lizzy, you have to see the illustrations in this book!), so I’ll name my Peeps from it:

    B Queen Pomegranate
    G Rimonah
    H The Farmer, Sailor, and Tax Collector
    I And I think the Genie should be named Pete. :)

  160. Susan Ivester says:

    These prints invaded my life! “I” is my husband with his perpetual scowl. “H” is of my 3 kitties hiding during a thunderstorm. “C” is my son slinking from the kitchen with a stash after we’ve gone grocery shopping. And “B” is of me – slim and pretty. Oh, wait. Slim and pretty is just a fantasy of mine.

  161. Dell says:

    Abacus the wise man, Jack the street urchin, Prince Harry, and the 3 stooges.

  162. Wendy Ladd says:

    here are their names and back story:

    A = King Winter
    B = Princess Summer (daughter of the King)
    C is the illegitimate son of the King who lives on the streets = Vargus The Beggar (but his royal name is Victor, Prince Autumn)
    D is the Sultan and first assistant to king = Sir Gypson (he’s really a gypsy that wants to steel the Kings crown and melt it down)
    E (the wise man) = Everyone just calls him “Pops” (he’s actually the Kings father but he’s alittle crazy so no one believes him.
    F & G are Ladies in Waiting = Allie & Felicity
    H is the Bag of Tricks Gang aka = Omar, Dillon, and Sam
    I is the body guard to the Princess = aka “The Rauck”

  163. Jane says:

    Well I think I may skip the seriousness!

    H are Mustafa, Mehmet and Mahal – three mediocre and muddled thieves, who sadly got into full olive oil jars…….. The bonus is that although their wives shrieked and are still trying to get their clothes clean, they now have the most fantastic skin.

    G is Molly, the foreign exchange student, who is loving the local fashion, but is not sure how practical it will be when she is back home and running for the school bus…

    and I is Jim the Genie, who is NOT happy that the laundry has shrunk his best suit AGAIN.

    Thanks for the giveaway – and the insight into 1001 peeps

  164. Kate says:

    Happy Birthday Lizzie!! I love your 1001 Peeps and cannot wait for Camp!!

    My guess is silly so here we go:

    B) Princess Penelope. She hates to dress herself so she lets you pick out whatever you want her to wear and she will stand like Barbie and let you dress her.

    C) Kung Fu Ken: He wants to learn how to fight so he will practice even when he is grocery shopping.

    E) Buddha Bob: always meditating on life…

    H) Frank, Ray and John. Their wives told them that they were playing hide-and-go-seek and now they are wondering if that was just a ruse so their wives get a few more minutes with the fabric merchant…

    Thank you for having this giveaway!!

  165. wendy says:

    A-Sultan
    B-Sheherazad
    D-Grad Vizier
    E-Dali Lama

    Well, I am just going on what first came to mind when I gave them my first glance. B- Francesca, C-A.B. (stands for Aching Back), D- Sir Frowns-a-Lot, F-Lamp Mama (because I first thought she was holding a baby. Hey, what can I say, I’ll be 40 this year and the eyesight is starting to go), G-Sweet Cheeks, and finally, H-the 3 Pot Heads (get it, because they’re the heads on the pots?!! hehehe!:)) Oh, and Happy Birthday Lizzy!

    Thank you for being sooo talented and letting us share in your talent by creating using your fabric. I have bought some already intending to make a wedding present quilt for my sister-in-law who just got engaged in Dubai.. I thought it was just perfect to remind her of her Arabian proposal.

    C Ali Baba

  189. Elizabeth says:

    So everyone else seems to be answering seriously, and since I’m doing a fantastic job procrastinating this morning, I will continue and make up silly names. In all honesty, I really do like the city pattern. And the Towers look like it’d be wonderful as a interesting border fabric on a quilt. I think I’m going to have to watch Aladdin sometime this weekend, now!

    Really, it’s the story of fashionista princess Francine (G) and her boyfriend Bernie (F) the goldsmith apprentice. Because Francine (G) is the beloved daughter of vogue clothing designers Dolce (A) & Gabbana (B), they want to make sure Bernie is good enough for her. So they supply him with 3 tasks. First, he must beat the reigning miniature golf champ, Diablo (D). Bernie enlists the aid of his ninja friend J (C), and with his amazing fish-throwing skills, Bernie is able to defeat Diablo and complete task 1. Second, he must defeat the 3 Turtle brothers (Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, H). Bernie gets help from his friend Mario (not shown) and borrows a Boot to defeat these 3 with no injuries to himself. Task 2 done. Finally, he must design an outfit for the couple’s friend Tiny (I) who stands 7′ tall, using only a single yard of fabric. Bernie goes to his mentor Au (E) who tells him (in a Zen manner of Yoda) that less is more, and so they make a matching vest/capri combo with golden bangles to accent his arms and legs. Dolce and Gabanna love the “movement” of the outfit and the simplicity of the lines so much that they immediately accept Bernie and Happily Ever After ensues!

  190. Tammy says:

    hmmm, Scheherazade (didn’t even try to spell it, just copied and pasted from above), aladdin, some of the 40 thieves, genie and possibly a jafar. beautiful fabric!

  195. tia says:

    Hey there! Here are my names for the characters above….

    H – the three thieves Abdul, Abib, and Usama whose specialty is stealing rare yellow goats and teaching them to sing and preform balancing acts. Actually they are a rather fun loving group who also enjoy pressing herbs and collecting wild flowers.

    G – Ingrid – she is the unfortunate victim of a kidnapping early in her youth in Norway and was sold to a slave trader. He did not make much of a profit on her do to her curious body odor, but she does have a fine hand at stitching and now is the quilting slave to the princesses of the harem. Ingrid’s one dream in life is to be a famous fabric designer for Moda.

    C – Yusaf – This young lad was cursed in a rather cruel fashion by an evil sorcerer. At one time he was a brilliant tenor, but now he can only croak like a raven. He spends his days luring fish into his nets searching for a king Marlin who will be able to kiss him and break the enchantment. He is able a make a nice little profit by selling the sea creatures who are not magical marlins in the local fish bazaar.

    This is a fantastic collection, Lizzy! I am off to get ready for summer camp with the peeps.

    xo,
    Tia

  196. Jess says:

  227. Laura P says:

  228. Laura P says:

    I’m fighting the urge to name all of them characters from Disney’s Aladdin…

    A – Sultan Sinbad
    D – Grand Vizier Zanzibar
    I – Jinni
    H – I love these little guys! I’ll call them the “cowardly peasants”

  229. Angela says:

    I love 1001 Arabian Nights–what a great inspiration! I’m guessing that A is the king who takes a new wife every night and then has her murdered, B is Scheherazade, F is Aladdin, G is Morgiana from Ali Baba and the 40 thieves, and I is the Jin of the Lamp. I hope you publish a list of all of them, as I’m eager to hear who the others represent.

    Fabulous idea for a fabric line, Lizzy, and great design. Oh, and Happy Birthday!

  230. Lydia says:

    Scheherazade, Jafar, Aladdin, King Shahryār
    Happy Happy Birthday!!!

  231. laurel says:

    A. King Shahryar
    B. Queen Scheherazade
    F. Aladdin
    H. Some of the forty thieves hiding in oil jars
    I. a genie?

  232. Emily Walker says:

    Alladin, Sinbad, Scheherazade?, Sulton Shahriyar?
    Very cute fabric!!

  233. starjumper says:

    I’m going to go with
    a) King Shahryār
    b) Queen Scheherazade
    d) Jafar
    f) Aladdin
    i) the Genie

    that genie is sooooo cute!

  234. Mama Urchin says:

    Well D is certainly Ja’far or Maghreb and F is Aladdin and his lamp. Are A and B Shahryār and Scheherazade? H is some of the forty thieves hidden in the oil jars and is I Sinbad? C could be the fisherman who finds the chest in the river, does he have a name? and E looks like a Jinni. That just leaves G who could be princess Badroulbadour (or Jasmine in the Disney version).

    I wonder how many I got right? I just love this new collection, looking forward to camp.

  235. cheryl bernard says:

    king, night, beggar,and a Jennie. I love the colors. All shades of blue are my favorites. Happy Birthday Lizzy!!!!
