Hi everyone,

 

 

 

 

Happy Friday! I hope everyone had a wonderful week. SO ready for the weekend! Who’s with me? We’re also giving away a Sea Life FQB on our Facebook Page this week, so be sure to enter!

 

It’s time to end this week with our Fan Friday! Today we are featuring a super sweet baby quilt by Calamari Quilts, featuring our Folklore by Heather Rosas Collection. Calamari Quilts is an Etsy Shop dedicated to beautiful, handmade quilts. Mother-daughter, sewing duo Mary and Michelle are the creatives behind Calamari Quilts, both with a love for quilting, sewing, and creating high quality items. Inspired by the scenic views around her home and studio, Michelle creates quilts based on the beauty she sees everyday. When her daughter was born, she was given thirteen handmade blankets, and wants to pass along the special-ness she felt to other new mommies.

Calamari Quilts created an adorable baby girl’s quilt called “Wren’s Pals” with our Folklore Collection. We absolutely adore the brightness of the red, contrasted with the different grays in the striped quilt. Folklore is a very feminine and pretty collection of birdies and flowers, so it was the perfect choice for this little girl’s quilt. It would brighten up any nursery, and the extra touch on the binding is fabulous! Such a stunning quilt!

Hi everyone!

 

 

 

Happy Thursday! I hope everyone is having a fantastical day!! Not sure if you saw yesterday’s post, but we’re hosting another Winsday! This week, we’re giving away a Sea Life FQB on our Facebook Page – so go enter now!! ;)

 

Saying some “thank yous” today with our Thankful Thursday! Today we are featuring another awesome quilt shop, Fabric Mill, who love Camelot Fabrics. Fabric Mill is a quilt shop located in Orem, Utah and has been up & running since 1972. They are a combination quilt shop and fabric store, so they are a one-stop shop for all of your quilting and sewing needs! As well, they have quilt kits, tutorials, and cool patterns available. Though they got their start in the 70s, they’re up-to-date with the latest fabric trends, love bright colors, and are big fans of social media.

 

One collection they particularly adore is our Wildflowers by Alisse Courter Collection, from Fall 2014. Wildflowers is our feminine floral collection of luscious pink, chartreuse, and grey hues. The floral patterns are ethereal and soft, and make for the perfect palette for a girly quilt or dress.

Fabric Mill featured our Wildflowers Collection on their blog, which included very sweet words. Along with some lust-worthy pictures of Wildflowers & coordinating Mixology, they also shared their favorite Camelot Fabrics free projects.
