[ a peek into the quilt world ]

Cotton Blossoms by Camille and Bonnie for Moda

I get quite a kick out of blog-land. Recently I posted about a darling young gal with a wonderful pattern and fabric company - and whaddayaknow - she stumbled onto my post and left a comment on my blog. Here's her blog address http://www.camilleroskelley.typepad.com .

OK - you ask - why are you so excited? Because, first of all her patterns and fabrics are fresh and unique and make me want to sew. AND when I was looking at all her photos from the Portland Quilt Market, there she was in photos with all the women I love to follow in quilting and fabric design - Amy Butler, Sandy Gervais, Heather Bailey, Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree, Nancy Halvorsen of Art to Heart, Sandy of American Jane patterns, Sandi Henderson of Portobello Pixie...for years I have loved looking at all their fabrics and finished projects - some of them long before blogs and websites were even thought of, like Camille's mom at Cotton Way. Here's Camille's comment:

Hi Debbie! I randomly came across your blog today, what are the odds? I am assuming it was you who left a message about the pin cushions, sorry I hadn't returned your call yet, it was on the list for today! The pin cushions in the picture are my mom's pattern Polka Dot Pin Cushions, and you can find it at Cottonway.com. I'll try to post a direct link, but just in case it doesn't work, that is where you can find them.

Thanks Camille - I am on my way to Red Rooster our wonderful local quilt shop to look for your patterns and fabrics and special order if they're not there.

Red Rooster is owned by my friend Kay Neilson - it's charming place with lots of fabrics and patterns to look at. They just started a website and it was convenient to hop on and check out their fall class schedule.
