.: Red Letter Australia - Camille's trunk show! :.

So I had the fabulous fortune last Wednesday night to go along to Camille Roskelley's trunk show at The Quilters' and Embroiders' Store.  I can't even tell you how awesome it was - to meet Camille, her great friend Holly, and lovely Di Mill, who has coordinated and organised the whole trip for Camille and Holly.  AND it was such a great treat too, to see all Camille's quilts, and to share in the night with all the lovely quilting-ladies we met.  I went along with my friend Tracy, and met up with Kirsten, and lots of ladies from the Brisbane Modern Quilt Guild and instagram!  

All these pics - and there are many - are from my iPhone - the light's not great, some pics are blurry, but I thought I'd share them with you all the same.  

[Swoon! - and how cute is Camille's pineapple shirt!]
[Round and Round]


[On a Whim]
[aren't the minis fabulous! They've being held up by Holly and Di]

[Red Letter Day!]
[of all the gorgeous quilts, I think this is my absolute favourite - it's made from test-blocks from lots of Camille's quilts]

[the awesome bag! - made from a friend of Camille's as a surprise]
Aren't they just all so gorgeous?!  I really should have double checked all the quilt-names and shared that with you too, but it's already taken me a week to upload the pics from my phone, and I didn't want to wait longer!

I was so excited about meeting Camille and Holly, that I thought I'd make them a little something as a pressie - and couldn't go past Kristy's fabulous koala pattern!  All the greens and the binding are Camille's fabrics, and so is the grey spot on the koala.  His ears are Pam Kitty Morning's white on white 'Recipes for Success'. 

And here's a pic of the koalas by themselves.

Camille, Holly and Di are are so lovely and gorgeous, and it was an absolutely wonderful experience to meet them.  I'll be back tomorrow to share pics of all my Red Letter Day blocks and the finished quilt front! - because, yes, it's finished!   xoxo cat


  1. Yay, you got much better pictures than me - too many heads in front of me! It was a pleasure to meet you Cat and I'm so looking forward to seeing your finished quilt top. Have you thought about how you're going to quilt it yet?

  2. You were sooooo lucky to have been there! I would have loved it. Unfortunately I live in The Netherlands and I don't think I will ever have the chance.... Enjoyed your pictures, thank you for posting so many!

  3. Looks like you had a great time! Just from your pics Camille looks like a really expressive and genuine person....sad I missed it.


Oh hello there. Thank you for visiting, and for taking the time to leave us a comment, we really do appreciate it. We will reply by email (unless you are a no-reply-commenter, and we can't!). Have a happy day. cat and vee xoxo.
