Camilles Trunk show

I spent a few days up in Brisbane this week for Camille Roskelley's trunk show held at The Quilters Store, and Red Letter Day quilt workshop. Many of you will already have seen some photos on IG etc (#redletteraustralia) but I thought I'd post a few more photos here.
I think Camille bought about 15 quilts out with her to Australia - this is her Red Letter day quilt which is the design that many of us attending the workshop were sewing the next day. 
The quilt above is one Camille made from all of her "leftover" or sample blocks which is a great idea.
 This is her Round and Round quilt - love the darker background.
And the Made with Moda quilt using letters and mini blocks - I really like the scrappy binding on this one too.
This is the Rise and Shine quilt along with its matching mini quilt.
Many of Camille designs now have a matching mini quilt pattern and they all looked so cute together!

 My favourite was definitely the Swoon quilt!
And this is an amazing Amy Butler Weekender bag using some of the mini quilt designs on the pockets made by a friend of Camille's.
It was wonderful to see her beautiful quilts up close and to hear her talk about the inspirations for the Moda Bonnie and Camille fabrics and how her Thimbleblossoms patterns are designed. I will be back tomorrow with more pics from the workshop!


  1. Wasn't it so much fun? I really love the fan quilting on the Swoon quilt - I'm thinking about getting someone to do it on my Red Letter Day (there's no way I could do that myself). Looking forward to hearing how you found the class!

  2. I went to her trunk show Friday night in Sydney. It was great seeing the quilts "in person". What a wonderful lady she is.

  3. Looking forward to hearing and seeing more......
    Thanks for sharing.

  4. Very fun! I enjoy seeing your photos!

  5. Sooo envious you got to meet Camille! She is my quilting idol, and one of the first blogs I followed.
