❤️Making progress on my red and white quilt, can’t wait to show you! #cottonway #bonnieandcamille


Valentines Day is right around the corner, so if you are looking for a fun quilt to make, my Love You Most pattern is on sale this week for $6.00. ❤️ If you want a kit, @alatimer has some in her shop. #loveyoumostquilt #bonnieandcamille


Lots of chain piecing going on over here by the warm fire as my husband clears the snow outside. ❄️ I don’t really enjoy winter, but I have to admit it’s a beautiful day! Happy Saturday. ❤️



It’s snowing ❄️ ❄️❄️ outside today, so it’s the perfect day to stay in and sew. I have been a little obsessed with red and white quilts lately, so trimming tails on these blocks makes me so happy! ❤️


I am so happy to be back in my sewing room today! Loving my new thread catcher from @thimbleblossoms ❤️


Merry Christmas from our house to yours. ❤️



My new little grandson. ❤️ The BEST gift ever! 🎁


I got the sweetest package from @sweetwaterfabric today! Thank you girls! 😘❤️🎁 Merry Christmas!🎄


I could not have been more surprised when I opened the box and found this cute little house! It’s ADORABLE!!! I’ll bet you can guess who sent it. Thank you @thimbleblossoms, I love it so much! ❤️ That was truly a labor of love and you know how much I love red! And You! ❤️❤️❤️ What a sweet and thoughtful gift!



A couple more finishes for two of my grandsons. ❤️ I sent one to sweet Gemma, but forgot to take a picture before I sent it to her. 🎁 What are you making for handmade Christmas gifts this year? 🎄 #joyfulpattern #vintageholidayfabric


Christmas is always merrier with Moda! Thank you!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️#modafabrics


Christmas sewing is in full swing over here. I was lucky enough to get Goldilocks and the Three Bears by @stacyiesthsu (thanks Lissa!) and had so much fun making these for my Granddaughter. She has Little Red and Coral of the Sea and will love having some new friends. Handmade gifts are my favorite part of Christmas! ❤️ #stacyiesthsu #modafabrics



Happy December! 🎁The winners for the #12contestsbonnieandcamille are up @thimbleblossoms, go check it out! ❤️ Thank you to all of you that participated, it was SO fun to see all of the B&C quilts you are working on! As a thank you, we each want to offer one of our favorite Christmas quilt PDF’s for $5.00 today and tomorrow. No coupon code required! Merry Christmas!🎄 Oh, and the fun continues, hop on over to @modafabrics tomorrow for the final month of fun and more giveaways! #bonnieandcamille


Just a little reminder that this is the last week of our B&C/Moda contest. It’s been so fun to see all of your block posts and thanks for the B&C love! ❤️ We will be randomly choosing 3 winners and then @thimbleblossoms and I will each choose a favorite block for a bonus prize. Don’t forget to hashtag your block #12contestsbonnieandcamille and tag @bonniecottonway and @thimbleblossms! Makers are tagged. Good luck! #12contestsbonnieandcamille


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

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


My suitcases are all packed for Quilt Market 🎉Just a few odds and ends to finish up and I'm off. ✈️If you are going to be there, come by the booth to say Hello! ❤️

Scalloped selvages sure make a pretty pincushion! ❤️......................

❤️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. ❄️
