Hi everyone!  We’re starting off February with a blog hop organized by Tricia Maloney to celebrate her newest book I Love Precut Quilts! published by C & T Publishing.  And it’s not just a blog hop, but there is a giveaway of Tricia’s book too! More about that in a bit…

We love to thumb through new quilting books and love the easy to follow instructions in Tricia’s book – perfect for beginner quilters. More seasoned quilters too will find some fun projects to stitch up in a moment’s notice.

Two of our favourite patterns in the book are:  Paper Lanterns (show left below, would be fun in Camelot Fresh Solids and Mixology), and the Serenity Table Set (shown right, we envision this place setting in Do What You Love).

Tricia is no stranger to Camelot Fabrics.  She has designed and created beautiful quilts for us to showcase our collections at Quilt Market. Pictured below are the quilts she made for our You Are Dino-Mite collection (left, arriving in stores June 2017) and Meadow collection (right, in stores this month!).  Not coincidentally, many of the quilts Tricia has created for us are well suited to precuts :).

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  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!

And a huge thank you to everyone who entered!!

Stay tuned for next week’s Winsday…

Happy Sewing!
