We’ve loved seeing your beautiful blocks for the Moda contest over the past week (these red and white beautifies were made by @samanthaleeolsen- aren’t they gorgeous? ❤️), and there were so many great entries that we thought we’d add a couple more bonus prizes. In addition to our three big winners (which will be chosen randomly), @thimbleblossoms and I are each going to choose an additional winner, she will pick her favorite block from the Thimble Blossoms ones and I’ll pick my favorite one from the Cotton Way blocks. Right now there are more Thimble Blossoms blocks, so get sewing some Cotton Way ones! :-) We hope you are having fun! #12contestsbonnieandcamille


❄️With all the snow outside, it's a good day to catch up on my Patchwork Quilt Along blocks. #patchworkquiltalong


We have something pretty exciting to share with you today- a big huge contest with all kinds of prizes. It’s Bonnie & Camille month of the Moda 12 Contests and it is going to be so much fun! All you have to do to enter is:

1. Make a block (or quilt!) out of any Bonnie & Camille fabric using either a Cotton Way or Thimble Blossoms pattern
2. Use the hashtag #12contestsbonnieandcamille
3. Tag us (@thimbleblossoms and @bonniecottonway) in your caption
4. Cross your fingers!

That’s it! You can enter each block you make from November 1-30. The prizes will be provided by Moda, Camille and me, and there are some pretty great ones! Including a Vintage Holiday fat quarter bundle or two… you are going to want to win this one!

Good luck!



It's time for a weekend special on my Cotton Way Classics book. ❤️ No codes, just head over to my shop to get one for 20% off. (link in profile) Happy Friday! #cottonwayclassics #cottonway


Good Morning from Quilt Market! ❤️Here are a few close ups of our booth in our new Vintage Holiday fabric. @thimbleblossoms and I would love to say hi, oh and if you need chocolate, we have plenty to share! ❤️#bonnieandcamille #vintageholidayfabric #cottonway

❤️Have I mentioned how much I love these selvages? Can't wait to show you what I am making with them!

Vintage Holiday flannels! 🎉Yes! ❤️ If you've ever made anything with Moda flannel, you know how yummy it is! Seriously, it's the best! Oh, and guess what, there is one Vintage Holiday print that only comes in flannel! There are 20 different pieces of flannel in yardage, Fat Quarter bundles, Layer Cakes and Charm Packs. Think of all the possibilities! It's never to early to start planning. The flannel will ship in April as well. Shhh, don't tell my grandkids, but next Christmas is definitely going to include some special gifts made with Vintage Holiday flannels. 🎄 Stop by @thimbleblossoms to see the bundle and her beautiful quilts! She takes the prettiest pictures! ❤️#vintageholidayfabric #showmethemoda #quiltmarket #bonnieandcamille


Bundle Up is last for my new pattern introductions this week. Yes, Vintage Holiday does have flannel! 🎉 (more on that later) Bundle Up has flannel on front, back and binding, so it's as cozy as it gets! If you have winter right around the corner, whip one of these up quick! The subtle basket weave design makes it look harder than it is, trust me, this one is fast with only 4 big blocks. The Epic Swirl quilting design reminds me of the snow as it swirls around outside on a pretty winter day. Size 72" x 72". Thanks again @suzyq2k1 for the beautiful quilting!!! ❄️All of my new patterns are available in my shop with a special bundle price. ❤️ #bundleupquilt #vintageholidayfabric #bonnieandcamille #cottonway



Bundle Up is last for my new pattern introductions this week and it's cozy flannel front, back and binding! For those of you that have winter right around the corner, this quilt is easy, fast and who wouldn't want to bundle up in this? #bundleupquilt #vintageholidayfabric #bonnieandcamille #cottonway


❤️Scrappy quilts are my favorite and if like them too, take a look at my new Deck the Halls pattern. This quilt was so much fun to make! #deckthehallsquilt #vintageholidayfabric #bonnieandcamille #cottonway


Deck the Halls is up next. The holidays are never
complete without a festive wreath hanging on the door or in the window. Adding this colorful wreath quilt to your decor will certainly brighten your home or would definitely be a favorite gift for someone you love. The tiny metallic silver dot in the white background fabric adds an extra sparkle to the quilt. It's 72" x 88", scrappy, fun to make and fat quarter friendly! #deckthehallsquilt #vintageholidayfabric #bonnieandcamille #cottonway



A little closer look at Snowflakes with the Snow Crystal quilting. If you zoom in, you can see the snowflakes in all the swirls. ❄️
#christmascheerquilt #vintageholidayfabric #bonnieandcamille #cottonway


Today I am excited to introduce Snowflakes! ❄️❄️❄️ Winter is magical with the sparkle of beautiful snowflakes! This quilt is made with 6 aqua 1/2 quarter yard cuts. I love how fresh and soft the colors feel together. If you have been making my quilt patterns, you know I love making two color quilts and this was the perfect line to make an aqua one. This quilt is 68" x 68" and I added flannel to the back of this quilt as well. My flannel quilts are the ones everyone grabs and wraps up in on our cold Idaho winter days. ❄️ Just in case you happen to be a little too impatient to wait for each day's quilt introduction this week, stop by my shop and take a peek. Happy Tuesday! #christmascheerquilt #vintageholidayfabric #bonnieandcamille #cottonway


The tiny silver metallic dot in the white background fabric, adds an extra little sparkle to the quilt. Sprinkled throughout are more metallic details that give this quilt a special holiday feel. The quilting on all of my quilts I will be showing this week was done by @suzyq2k1. She did a beautiful job as always and in record time. The quilting is called Snowflakes and Curlicues. Thank you so much Susan! Christmas Cheer is in my shop (link in profile) Make sure you stop by @thimbleblossoms today too to see Camille's beautiful quilts! ❤️

We woke up to snow on Saturday morning and it really put me in the mood to start introducing my new quilts. ❄️ If you have been following Camille and me, you know that our new fabric line is called Vintage Holiday and we are pretty excited about it! 🎄
I have 4 new patterns this time around and the first is called Christmas Cheer. You won't want to celebrate the holidays without this quilt that has all the traditional christmas reminders, from Santa hats and stockings to peppermints, packages and stars. Christmas Cheer is pieced in rows with lots of scrappy blocks and is so fun to make! It is 78" x 88" and is Fat Quarter friendly. Moda will be offering this pattern as a kit! 🎉 Oh, and wouldn't it be fun to use some of the blocks to make smaller projects like a stocking or Santa hat runner, a tree wall hanging or star ornaments? PDF and paper patterns are in the shop! (Link in profile)❤️

Today we are SO excited to share the selvages from our new Christmas line, Vintage Holiday 🎄@thimbleblossoms and I have had a Christmas line on our list for awhile now and we couldn't be more happy! ❤️ It seems like forever from the time we work on an idea, submit our proposal, get strike offs and then wait, wait, wait to actually get the fabric to create with it. When the boxes of this line came, I was so excited and my husband said "Getting fabric really is like Christmas for you isn't it?" Yes!!! It always is and this time I wanted to put on the Christmas music! 🎁New quilts coming soon! #vintageholidayfabric #itsthemostwonderfultimeoftheyear #bonnieandcamille #modafabrics


I took my last quilt to the quilter and cleaned up all the little bits of trimmings. You know how it is after a crazy bunch of sewing, it feels really good! And it's pretty fun to get to share a little peek at what @thimbleblossoms and I have been stitching with! Can't wait to share a lot more! #bonnieandcamille #showmethemoda #quiltmarket
