Hi everyone,





Happy Friday! I hope you all are having a fantastic day. Have you entered our The Kitten’s Meow Giveaway yet? You’re going to love this one! We’re paw-sitive ;)


Ending another wonderful week with our Fan Friday. We LOVE when you tag us on Instagram, whether it be your adoration for one of our fabric collections or sharing a beautiful new project. Thank you to everyone who has, it seriously makes our day! Want to join in on the fun? We’re @camelot_fabrics…and you can also use the hashtag #camelotfabrics. An – lovely mother of 3, fabric addict, and lilac hair rocker - enjoys sewing adorable dresses and skirts for her girls. But of course, she also sews for herself!


She sewed the Lilou Dress, from Tilly and the Buttons’ “Love at First Stitch” book. The dress features a fitted bodice, thicker straps, and a full skirt – the perfect vintage/50s-inspired outfit. An chose to use our Botanical by Alisse Courter Collection, and we adore how the navy and mustard leaf-printed design looks as a full dress. The muted colours allow for a playful, yet classy look. An paired her dress with a mustard cardigan, and she is looking super stylish! 






Thank you so much, An, for the fabric love…and for sharing your wonderful project with us! This is An’s Instagram too, if you’d like to see the other beautiful things she has sewn. Have a fantastical weekend, everyone!!





Happy Sewing!

Time for this week’s What We Love ♥ New month, new adventures… in the midst of summer, we’re trying to do/try/experience/love/learn new things. Whether it be a recipe you’ve pinned but never got the chance to make, or a different experience such as skydiving (woosh!) or going to a ceramics class. Take a chance, take a risk, because you’ll never know unless you do. We’ve also added a new member to our design studio; everyone say hi to Roxanne! See what we have been loving this week…  ♥

Hi everyone,





Happy Thursday! I hope you all are having a fabulous day. We are hosting a new giveaway this week – our The Kitten’s Meow Collection. Let us know what you would create with our adorable collection for a chance to win!


Time for this week’s Thankful Thursday! Today we are featuring a gorgeous quilt pattern designed by Nicole Maroon of The Girl Who Quilts. The Diamonds Quilt is a lovely quilt pattern, featuring columns of octagon and diamond shapes. Each block features a different pattern, and the outline allows for a beautiful gradient effect of colors.





We love the idea of sticking to a synonymous color palette, such as the sea-inspired blue and green hues of our Zoey collection, so as to keep a harmonious look. We chose the grey SKUs from Zoey to create the bordered ombre effect; dark to light to dark again, and LOVE how it turned out. Nicole of The Girl Who Quilts designed this modern quilt pattern for us, and also quilted it for our Spring Quilt Market booth. It is such a pretty pattern digitally, but seeing it in person – it is a stunner! 







We want to thank Nicole for designing such a beautiful quilt design, and for quilting it for us for Quilt Market. You are amazing!! You can find more from Nicole, and all of her quilting wonders, on her website. You can also create your very own Diamonds Quilt; here is the free printable PDF. Have a lovely day!





Happy Sewing!
