We have made many projects with the Rose Quartz & Serenity collection for the Spring Quilt Market not to mention the ties and handkerchiefs that look stunning (You have to look at the picture Fave Quilts took).  So it is difficult to pick out just one project to feature.  But I am opting for the great Butterfly quilt pattern as it’s a relatively easy Queen Size quilt to make.

Please remember that I DO NOT recommend you starting your quilting journey by making a Queen size quilt!  Although I have heard many stories starting like this.  The fact is that quilting is not necessary the easiest hobby to have.  And starting on a big project might mean a very short lived dream of becoming a quilter.  Quilting combines many disciplines: the cutting, the piecing, the sandwiching, the quilting and the binding.  All very challenging!  I tend to call them pitfalls.  So ensure that you kind of master all of these before contemplating a Queen Size quilt.

You can download the free pattern on our website AND you will be happy to know that the pattern has been tested and all corrections have been made to ensure that you really enjoy making the quilt.

This Moody Monday is all about our quest for calm and celebrates a softer side with Jackie McFee capturing the essence of the two Pantone colours of the year: Rose Quartz & Serenity!

RoseQuartz-Serenity_inside_3fold

This new collection, Rose Quartz & Serenity, brings a sense of calm and relaxation.  It reminds me of the beautiful sunsets I was lucky enough to see during my holiday in Cape Cod.  The fabrics offer a balance between a warmer embracing rose and a cooler tranquil blue and will surely help you enjoy the moment you spend working on that very special project.

Making a quilt featuring this collection will surely provide you with a much-needed sense of tranquility and inner peace.

What are you planning to make with this collection? Be sure to check out the full program  in your local quilt shop.  Click here to find the one nearest your home.

Congratulations to our Winsday winner: Bonnie Beauchamp!

This week we hosted a Fat Quarters GIVEAWAY featuring our Fat Quarter bundle of the Hello, my deer collection on our Facebook Page. We wanted to know:

Who is your QBFF (Quilting best friend forever)?

I absolutely love reading your comments!  To see how you have connected with your Quilting best friends and how they help you not only in your quilting but also in life.  Our lucky winner says that her sister in law Christine is her QBFF.  She also mentions that Christine would love the fabric and that the pinks would make her happy… This is just how best friends are.. thinking of the other before themselves.

Bonnie BeauchampI hope you and Christine will enjoy your Fat Quarter Bundle.  If you can please email us your mailing address, with phone number, to  marketing@camelotfabrics.com  by August 3rd, 2016.  We cannot wait to see what you create with these fat quarters.  Please send us a picture for our Fan Friday blog!
