I was asked to make a shop sample of Camille's pattern Summerville using Bonnie and Camille's latest line Vintage Picnic.
It gave me a week of happy sewing in my sewing room.
I started with the stars,
then I made the houses,
added these 9 patches,
the house border,
and the final border. And just like that I was done. The pattern cover says this is a "Sweet & Simple" pattern, I could not agree more. Plus it was fun, and made me happy the whole time I worked on it. I think it was a combination of the wonderful fabric and easy piecing. The bird fabric was my favorite. I wasn't sure Bonnie and Camille could design a family of fabric I liked better than Happy Go Lucky, but they did.
I think this pattern would also look great if you used holiday themed fabric, like Halloween or Christmas, or even went totally scrappy. Which is a good thing, Vintage Picnic won't be hitting stores until February, 2016.
This is Lifetime Quilt Number 162
The pattern is Summerville by Camille Roskelley for thimble blossoms, (available here)
The fabric is Vintage Picnic by Bonnie and Camille for Moda
It finished at 70" x 70" ( my favorite size and shape)
And has approximately 876 pieces.
