Hello there! Thanks for stopping by my blog on the Moda Love Blog Tour. I’ve been having such a great time connecting with everyone on Instagram that I haven’t been great at keeping my blog up this summer, so it’s nice to have something to bring me back over to this space. :-)
If you are new to all this, every six months or so we have a Moda blog hop with all the Moda crew, and each answer a few fun questions, talk about what’s new, and have some pretty great giveaways. There is a list with all the designers, their blogs, and the days they will be posting HERE. Today Janet and Kate are posting too, so make sure to stop by and say hello.
If you are new to my blog, here’s a little about me. My name is Camille Roskelley, and I design fabric with my mom, Bonnie for Moda. You might know us as Bonnie and Camille. Our newest line is called Miss Kate and is available in stores now.
I also design quilt patterns for my company, Thimble Blossoms, and have for about 7 years. Time flies!
I’ve written a few books, and also teach quilting classes over at Craftsy. More on that here.
I love to quilt, and have a recent obsession with making mini versions of all my quilts. I can't stop. Here's proof:
I am a mom to three wild little boys, and I love cookies. Any baked goods, really. If you make a good cookie, stop by anytime. ;-)
That pretty much sums it up, so back to the blog hop!
This time around, all the designers who were in the Moda Schoolhouse at Quilt Market made their own version of the Moda Love Layer Cake quilt. Since I was home packing for my teaching trip to Australia, I wasn’t at Market, and so I don’t have my own version of the quilt. Yet! I’m sure once I start seeing all of them popping up here and there I’ll have to make one of my own. :-) Here’s the free pattern, if you’d like to make one!
I’m supposed to answer a few questions too, and since this is quickly turning into the longest blog post ever, I’ll try to be brief. ;-)
Q- When did you start quilting? Tell us about your first quilt.
A- My mom taught me to sew when I was a little girl- about 5 or 6 years old, but I didn’t start my first official quilt until I was 14, and finished it when I was 15. It doesn’t look anything like my quilts now, and was hunter green and maroon, but is still one of my favorite quilts I’ve ever made. It is so special to me!
Q- What fuels you to create?
A- Dr. Pepper. Seriously.
Q- What is the best part of your design process?
A- Laying out a finished project when it is pieced, quilted, and bound. It makes me grin every time.
Q- I love the color……
A- Aqua! You’d never guess, right?
Q- This project features a layer cake, charm pack or mini charm, but what is your all time favorite moda precut?
A- Hmm… I love all the precuts, but if I had to choose, I’d have to say a fat quarter bundle. There is nothing prettier than a bundle of beautiful fabric!
Speaking of fabric, I have some to give away (thanks Moda!) Just leave me a comment below and tell me what your next project is going to be and which Bonnie and Camille line has been your favorite so far.
And in case you’ve had your eye on any patterns, I’ll also be having a PDF pattern sale in my shop this week, just enter ModalovePDF for 25% off all PDF patterns. Minis included! Oh, and both of my classes over at Craftsy are aslo on sale for 25% off. You can find them here and here.
Since I’m heading out this weekend to teach at the Norwegian Quilt Festival, I’ll be filling all paper pattern orders placed after Sept 3rd as soon I return on the 17th. (Don't worry, the PDF’s are instant so if you need something quick, they will still send out right away.) And I’ll have new patterns to show you then too! Now one last sneak peek:
Daysail- more on this soon!
Thanks for stopping by,
