Pillows for Camelot Fabrics

Camelot Fabrics is a Montreal based fabric company.  So, very close to me. I had never worked with their fabrics before, beside their printed felt. But, they have a great selection of modern prints. Last year, they contacted me to work on some projects for them. I had to make two pillow covers for one of their clients and wrote a pattern for each of them.

The first one is made using fabrics from the Gypsy Lane collection by Jane Farnham. The pattern was inspired by the the Golden Wedding Ring block. But, the ring appears to be floating as the background color is the same as the negative space around it.

The second one is made using fabrics from the Zoey collection. It’s my own design and reflects my love for triangles just like in my Amalgam quilt.

I had fun with the quilting for both projects. I like seeing the patterns it creates from the back of the top panels.

I finished the projects back in June. But, I couldn’t share them with you at that point. I knew it was to sell kits with the pattern, but I was surprised to learn that it was for Craft of Quilting. My projects are featured on pages 36-37 of their late summer catalog. It’s always fun to see your projects pictured in a nice set up. Too bad they don’t mention the name of the pattern designers, at least I didn’t see them. If you are interested by a kit to make one the pillow covers, you can find them here and here.

When testing out the patterns, I first made a version of the pillow covers using fabrics from my stash. I thought I’d share them with you as well. Here is one for the first pattern. Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures of the finished pillow before I gave it away.

As for the second one, I still need to quilt it and assemble it.

I hope you enjoyed the projects!

    Bravo Josée! Très joli encore une fois, très graphique et très … toi! Le premier ferait un très beau bloc pour une grande courtepointe. Ça aurait l’air d’un kaléidoscope.

      Merci Francine. Oui, j’ai vu différentes courtepointes qui utilisent le bloc original pour faire des kaléidoscope. C’est très beau en effet. Mais, ça doit être très long car c’est tout du paper piecing. Pour l’instant, je crois que je vais m’en tenir à un coussin!
