Bonnie and Camille Week

A few weeks ago the Bonnie and Camille Designer Select FQ kit showed up at my door. These packages always surprise me because it's not something I ordered a day before, it's just sent out automatically when your in the Designer Select FQ Club from The Fat Quarter Shop. This was also my first Bonnie and Camille fabric ever...I know its hard to fathom how someone could not have gotten any of the Bonnie and Camille past lines, but I like to buy fabric with a project in mind which means that I sometimes miss a line or 2. That's one reason that I joined this club, I won't miss as many lines.


The one problem I am having is deciding on a project to make with the Ruby. There's 12 print and 3 solid FQs, plus I have 2 more yards of the solid gray. Please help me decide on a project!

This week I have a great lineup of guest bloggers who will share with you their projects made with Cotton Blossom, Simple Abundance, Bliss, Ruby or any Cotton Way Pattern.

And like always The Fat Quarter Shop is sponsoring this series! The Prize this time is a Ruby Designer Select Fat Quarter kit! 

There's 2 ways to enter

1. Give me some inspiration...I can't decide on a project for this FQ kit. Tell me what you think I should make. Any links to the projects would be greatly appreciated.

2. Go to the Fat Quarter Shop web site and tell me which coming soon line you are most excited about.

There you go, 2 ways to enter. You do not have to be a follower of this blog to win, but it would be great if you did. I have a lineup of blog posts this month that I think you will enjoy and will not want to miss. It would also be wonderful if you shared this giveaway with your friends.

My Mr. Random will pick a winner on Saturday, November 12th.

  1. Flying flock is a fun way to go, but I also think that this fabric line would make a gorgeous wonky star quilt!

  2. I am most looking forward to Twirl by My & My Sister Designs - I am going to make some really cute things for Anne's room with that fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  3. I must confess that after seeing Melissa's Flying Flock I think you should make something gorgeous like that with all your fabulous Ruby!

  4. As for the Coming Soon line that I'm most excited about.. I really like the look of Fig Tree's new California Girl line.. and Jennifer Chiaverini's Caroline's Collection.

  5. I think you should make a framed quilt like this one: http://www.modabakeshop.com/2011/10/all-framed-up-baby-quilt.html#more

    It would really allow the fabrics to shine! =)

  8. I would love to see the quilt made using the pattern Sweet Pea by Anka's Treasures using the grey for the contrast in the blocks.

    ReplyDelete
  9. When I see Ruby I see pinwheels and geese. But LARGE geese, not the itty bitty geese. Like 6" blocks alternating between geese and pinwheels laid out so the geese are flying around the pinwheels. =) You can call me if you need me to 'splain more! xoxoxo

    ReplyDelete
  10. Id say its a toss up between California Girl, Good Fortune, Pear Tree and Salt Air. I want all three. In mass quantities. =)

  14. I thinks these would fabrics would look great in a star quilt, maybe something like Debonaire Quilt Pattern It's Sew Emma, Rachel Griffith.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I don't know if you are looking for one you would need to purchase but, I think that fabric would look great with one of Julie's newer patterns; "Come What May".
    http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2011/10/come-what-may-quilt-pattern.html

    Or a few of her others even like Unwind or Chopsticks.

  26. Sheesh, lightning strike real close. It has been raining downpours for hours now, think we probably have already had 6 inches this evening. But back to business, I was saying I have been feeling all soft and mushy and romantic lately, liking warm drinks, snuggling with hubz, stuff like that so I would go for
    Always & Forever Yardage Deb Strain for Moda Fabrics Thanks for the chance to win.

  27. A wonderful quilt for your bed! Made with your own design. I guess I have a hard time picturing anything but a full quilt with this gorgeous fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Just found a cute and simple Christmas quilt I'd like to make for my sons and their wives. Spirit of Christmas by Judie Rothermel would be perfect.

  32. Here's a suggestion that's not a quilt: If it were me, I would use some of the blues and grays to make a patchwork shower curtain.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Pinwheels are one of my favorite simple designs ever! as well as my new obsession with sawtooth stars!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh! And a favorite line coming out? so hard - but that luscious by basic grey looks pretty amazing. I also want to do something with the berenstein bears!

    ReplyDelete
  41. This is a gorgeous line - just saw a tutorial for a Bento Box block at sewwequilt. I think that such a block, with a chance to use those solids, would look great for a quilt. Alternately, a plus quilt ala Schnibbles would be cute too. alternate email mlwright29(at)hotmail(dot)com

  42. From the FQS coming soon section, I like Good Fortune and many others like Aneela's new line A Walk in the Woods. alternate email mlwright29(at)hotmail(dot)com

    ReplyDelete
  52. The re-release of Flea Market Fancy is on my wish list!

    ReplyDelete

  69. If you look at page 20 of the coming soon listings, there is a lovely pattern called "shadowflower" that I think would be great with this fabric...

    ReplyDelete
  70. Oops -- I wrote down 2 words (just 2) and still managed to get them mixed up. The pattern name is "impromptu" -- the coming soon line that I like is Shadowflower...lol...
