Designer Select: Bonnie and Camille



The Fat Quarter Shop, Bonnie and Camille have teamed up to present you with a Fat Quarter Shop Exclusive! Bonnie and Camille have specially selected 12 prints from their Ruby collection along with 3 coordinating Bella Solids for this special bundle you will only find at the Fat Quarter Shop.




Q: What inspired you to pick the colors and designs in your Designer Select Fat Quarter Bundle?
A: Ruby is actually named after Camille's spunky great-grandma Ruby. A bit about Ruby, at a whopping 5 foot 1in tall, she had bright red hair and drove a sporty orange Nova in her 70's. That should sum her up pretty well. She was a fireball! We used one of her favorite aqua flower brooches and several vintage prints from her fabric collection as the inspiration for the line, which absolutely had to include red, aqua and just a bit of orange, just to commemorate the Nova. Silly, right?


Ruby & her friend Betty


It probably wouldn't come as a surprise to anyone, but we happen to love a great aqua/red combo more than just about anything. There is just something about those colors together; and then mixed with a limey green, beautiful gray and a coral? Perfect. It was easy to select the prints for our bundle, we are aqua and red junkies. It's true. The solids we picked for the bundle complement and show off the other prints really well, and that floral ties it all together.




Q: What are 3 words you would choose to describe this collection, not including any of the fabric designs!
A:
1. Cheery
2. Fresh
3. Retro

*2 Truths and a Lie* 
1. We are completely hooked on Dr. Pepper and Diet Coke.
2. We share a birthday.
3. We have almost enough fabric between us to circle the earth twice.

One of the 3 statements is false. Comment on this post telling me which statement you think is false. Answer correctly and you have a chance to win Bonnie & Camille’s Designer Select Fat Quarter Bundle!

You have exactly one week from the post date.
Good Luck!

I love Camille, Bonnie and Ruby, thanks for the interview. Unbelievable, but I think '3 is uncorrect;-)

Carol said...

I know this one. I happen to follow Camille's blog and I know she loves Dr.Pepper. I'm sure her Mom is the Diet. Coke gal, me too. I also know they share a birthday. So, I'm saying number 3 is false. Love Ruby fabric!

Linda Sandusky said...

#3 is the incorrect statement (although I'm sure that it's almost true)!! I absolutely LOVE the ruby collection...I was never a fan of aqua & red together until now.

Anonymous said...

I'm guessing #3 is false as well. I know Camille is crazy about Dr Pepper! Love the aqua/red combo! "Ruby" sounds like she was a very memorable, amazing lady - full of life. Very cool that you named this fabric group for her.

Pattycake Manners said...

Gorgeous!! And I'm guessing Number 3 is false :)

Leila said...

#3? That would be a lot of fabric! Love the scalloped red print!

Mommarock said...

I think that #2 is a lie. #3 is probably just an exageration.. LOL but then again.. it is possible.

Vroomans' Quilts said...

Well, I'm sure they have lots of fabric, but #3 seems a little too much - so three is false.

Leslie J. said...

#3 unbelievably is false! Ruby is beautiful. Way to go Bonnie and Camille!

Debbie said...

#3....what gorgeous fabric & I love the back-story!

Glenys said...

Maybe no 1.

Kelsey said...

I love these fabrics! And I'm guessing that #3 is false :)

Janet said...

I think the false statement is having enough fabric to circle the earth. LOVE this fabric itis my favourite.

annmarie said...

I think it would be pretty hard to have that much fabric so #3 is my guess. Awesome collection - thanks for the chance to win it.

rderrett said...

I think 3 is false, but I'm sure they come close! Thanks for the chance.

audrey said...

Love Ruby! I'm contemplating doing a dear jane in Ruby. I think #3 is false.

karenfae said...

number 3 is false -- aren't they a great team!
Karen

madge said...

sharing a birthday

drmithome said...

#3. That would be an awesome amount of fabric.

Flo @ Butterfly Quilting said...

I would say that #3 is false.....although it could be close to the truth!!

Jen@thecraftingfiend said...

I think #3 is false... that's alot of fabric unless they hae a warehouse to store it - in which case I would change my vote to #2.

Vio said...

I love all those colors together! I believe statement #3 is the lie. :o) Thank you!!

Margaret said...

Love this collection! I think #3.

L&M Creations said...

I think #3 is false. Boy, would that be a lot of fabric!

Dee said...

I think #3 is false. I recall reading about Camille's Dr. Pepper obsession and I vaguely recollect the birthday thing?

Anita said...

I love their new fabric line. I think number 3 is incorrect.

Lisa said...

I love Camille's blog! Number 3 is the lie!!

Lisa L

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

These gals design the prettiest fabric. I know they share the same birthday, so I will guess that #3 is false.

Nancy said...

I Love this colorful Line!! I am betting #3 is incorrect~

Huggs, Nancy

Lisa said...

I think #3 is false since I follow Camille's blog!

Chelsea said...

I think 3 is false, but boy would it be great to have that much fabric! And the space to store it, of course.

Bettie said...

My granddaughter would love a quilt made from this bundle.

#3 - false

Deb S said...

This fabric looks absolutely yummy! I think #3 is false - though I think I have enough fabric to circle the earth maybe once.

Julie said...

Beautiful fabrics! I think #3 is false. Thank you!

hollymade said...

I think number 3 is false. Love the fabric!

Carol said...

I think #3 is false. Love that Ruby fabric!

Melinda said...

I think #3 is false. Ruby is gorgeous!

KMSC said...

I'm guessing statement #3 is false. That would be a lot of fabric!

Rebecca said...

I don't think #3 is true! Great interview - I love Ruby!!

Donna said...

I'm going with number 3. That would be a stinkin' lot of fabric, that I'd like to own I might add! So happy to see you honoring your great-grandma. I think grandma's are awesome!

Mikelle said...

I am going to say #2, even though #3 seems unlikely! I love Ruby!

Jeanne said...

3 is false...but maybe it is because they could circle the earth 3 times. ;)

Cynthia said...

I love Bonnie and Camille, and I love their new Ruby line. It is a perfect compliment to Bliss. I think that number 3 is false. I haven't made the calculations, but it seems a little far fetched :)

brenna said...

I think 3 is false - that would be a LOT of fabric! :)

Fran Kingston Dill said...

Love, love this fabric line.
I think they proably have enough to circle once but twice is a stretch so my guess is #3

Kira said...

3 must be a lie. I'm sure they have a lot of fabric, but that would be A LOT of fabric.

Joan said...

I think 3 is false. Fabric line is so pretty. Thank you for the opportunity.
jmoore@hawk.igs.net

Sunnybec said...

I follow Camille's blog and I am sure the only one not true is Number 3. Thanks for the chance to win. Linda

Ruth B said...

I know that Camille loves Dr. Pepper because I read her blog. I think I remember reading that she shares a birthday with her mom. So I'm guessing #3 if false. I can't even imagine how many yards of fabric it would take to circle the earth twice but I'm guessing even Moda couldn't do it with their supply! Love that gorgeous bundle and I caught the aqua/red bug from Camille long ago.

hummingbird stiches said...

I will pick #3. I love everything of their fabric!

Deb said...

I'm almost positive that #3 is the false one...although I'm sure we all have LOTS of fabric stash! LOL!

Ali Hughes said...

While number three seems almost so ridiculous it must be true, I'm going to guess false

Liz said...

LOVE it! I'm guessing #3.

jlk said...

I'm going with #3, even though I can imagine saying that about my fabric stash!

Staci said...

This fabric is so darn pretty! I just love the color combination, and the prints are charming. Well, number 3 must be false! I'll bet they have enough to reach the moon! LOL!
Seriously, though, can you imagine what kind of loveliness must be in the stash of these two ladies?

Cheri said...

Love this fabric. Thanks fo the posst. Number 2 cannot possibly be true if they are mother and daughter, The birth year would have to be different.

Lisnaweary Quilts said...

I'm guessing number 3 is false!

AnnieK said...

Such a gorgeous bundle! I think I'll have to go with #3...though who wouldn't want enough fabric to circle the earth? But, where would you ever stash it?? :-)

~Laurie~ said...

Mmmmm - this fabric bundle is so pretty! Bright and cheery - just like the designers - they always make me smile :)

#3 is false - although I bet these beautiful ladies can make it pretty far to the moon with their fabrics! Thanks for the chance to win such a gorgeous bundle!!

Delores said...

Love RUBY - red and aqua - yummy!

I think #3 is false.
Love to win....

stephmabry said...

#3 has to be the false one - that would be almost 7 million yards of fabric each, and I don't think even FQS has that much lying around!

Beth said...

I am guessing #3!
Lovely bundle!

MahSistersQuiltTrunk said...

Perhaps #2 is incorrect. Some would say I had enough fabric to circle the earth twice. I think these two woman are great. Great family, friends and fabric designers. Love everything they do.
Congrats to the winner.

Kathryn said...

I think #3 is false. No one has THAT much fabric! Kathie L in Allentown

Robyn said...

Number 3 is false.

Heather D. said...

I've searched through Camille's blog, and I think that #3 is false.

Phyllis said...

I'll guess #3!

MollyP said...

I think all 3 statements are true, the ladies just measured their fabric with metric rulers instead of yardsticks, so they came up a bit short in the math redo. I'll pick #3 as false...but just barely false. Thanks!

Linda said...

This is fun!! I pick number 3 because they probably have even more fabric than that!! :-) LOL!

candy said...

I am a junkie for Camille's blog so I am going to go with #3 as incorrect. Thanks for the chance.

mean sarah jean said...

i'm going with number 3. not impossible, i just don't believe it.

JenniferO said...

#3 is the lie, though I could almost believe it! Love the collection and the bundle!

Melissa @ Happy Quilting said...

These ladies are amazing!!! I love every line they have designed and so look forward to the next one. And I am going to have to go with number 3

Jane S. said...

I'd have to say that #3 would be the falsehood. It's probably not a total lie, maybe just an exaggeration? ;)

Thanks for sharing the backstory on Ruby. It's a great fabric line!

C. said...

#3!! christina112358 at gmail dot com

Diane H said...

Maybe once but probably not twice.#3 is false.Thanks.

PhoebeP said...

Gorgeous fabric! I know that they share a birthday, and that Camille loves Dr Pepper, so I guess I'll go for number 3 being the lie!

supersara20 said...

I know people with a lot of fabric but #3 seems to be a little far fetched! I'd think you'd need ware housese to store that much fabric.

Lindsay Conner said...

#3, please!

DianeY said...

Camille blogs more about her fascination with Dr Pepper than she does about her fabric stash, so I'm saying #3 is false

lisa said...

I am guessing #3 was intended to be a lie...but I wonder how close it may be to the truth!

Mom2RyandSis said...

I'll go with #3 :)

Nancy said...

I'm picking number 3. I'm sure they have a lot of fabric, but circling the earth twice- no way. Maybe once though.

Nancy said...

I'm going with #3 because while I'm sure both have lots and lots of fabric, I also know they use lots and lots of fabric to create their beautiful quilts :)

Wanda S. said...

I think number 3 is false. Loving Ruby!

Kelli said...

I've loved reading Mrs. Bonnie and Camille's blogs for a while now, so I'm going to go with #3. Although wouldn't a stash that big be fun to sort through?

Shelley said...

Totally love this collection. I'd like to make Swoon with these fabrics. I'll guess #3 - Probably enough for once around the world but twice?? Thanks for the chance to win.

PamKittyMorning said...

Two of the cutest girls ever. Love them.

Jen Arnall-Culliford said...

What gorgeous fabrics! And yes, I think that #3 is the false statement. :)

Judi said...

3 has to be false. But wow. Can you imagine... :)

Pat said...

I'm sure #3 is false but I bet it's close! (LOL) I've been waiting to make Swoon and Ruby would be my first fabric choice...love the colors. Cheers to great grandma Ruby!!!!

Jen said...

This is a hard one! I think #3 is false though! Love Ruby!

Janet said...

I'm going with #3 as false as well ... that'd be an LOT of fabric!

I was at my LQS last week when Ruby arrived ... gorgeous!

Thanks so much for the opportunity to win some!!

Kenton and Marianne Ogg said...

I saw this blog post and jumped up and down. I love their lines! I'm guessing #3. All that fabric would take up quite a bit of space.

Cory said...

I believe #3 is incorrect. Thank you for the chance to win. Take care and God bless, Cory

Andrea said...

my guess is #3

ritainalaska said...

the lie must be #3, the size of their stash! this bundle is so sweet ... would love to have it in my stash!thanx for the opportunity to win it.

Karen said...

I know the first one is correct and I think two is correct, so I will say three is the lie.

Jessica said...

I think 3 is false :)

Natalya Hoak said...

Lovely fabric! 3 must be false, but I wish it was true for me ;)

Heather said...

I think since the circumference of the earth is 24,901.55 miles, that the 3rd answer is the lie.

Theresa said...

I'm thinking #3 is false. Thank you so much for the opportunity!!! I love your fabric!!

Stacey said...

number three is false, threes a charm :O} would love a chance to win some ruby, have all their lines, made a quilt out of each so far, the only quilts i have kept for myself personally :O} I currently do not own any ruby, so this would be great to win!!! thanks

Karen said...

I think the false comment is number 3

Molly said...

It might be close, but #3 is false. The bundle is gorgeous; thanks for the chance!

ck said...

Wow, what a great giveaway! I am going to guess #3 :-)

Quilter in the Gap said...

It has to be #3 because that would mean they would have to have close to 88 million yards of fabric between the two of them. That is a great deal of fabric. Which comes out to about 4 million bolts. WOW that is a lot of fabirc!!!

Jamie Lee said...

They probably almost have enough fabric, but #3 is false!

Deb said...

I think the 3rd one is false - love Ruby!

Janelle said...

Number 3! We all think we do, but really....no.

Danielle said...

#3 is false. Ruby sounds a lot like my grandmother.

marksey3@msn.com

Ellie's Quiltplace said...

I guess #1 is wrong. Whish me luck ;o)

Jan said...

I think #3 is false. Where would you store all that fabric!

Mimi said...

# 3 has to be incorrect! Thanks for the fun!

Sarah said...

#1 is false. I think they're both hooked on Dr. Pepper.

I'll say "3".....but thats just a wild guess

Marcy said...

Having read your blogs regularly and getting to know a bit about each of you I am definitely going with #3.
Thanks for the chance to win this beautiful line.

Natalie said...

I am going to say that #3 is incorrect...and possibly because they could circle the earth more than 2 times with their combined fabric collection lol

CJ said...

#3 is false - they surely have more fabric than that statement indicates.

Heather said...

I think Number 3 is not correct!

Erin said...

I know that 3 is false. They probably have enough fabric to circle the earth 4 times! Love Ruby!

I think number 3 might be incorrect. How many miles is it around the earth? :D

#3 is NOT true! It only FEELS like you have that much fabric. ;0

Mary Carole said...

No doubt about it, #3 is false (though I am sure they have LOTS of fabric between the two of them)!

Thanks for the chance to win!

Donna said...

What great fabric! I'm guessing that #3 is incorrect - but it might be close to truth!

Melanie@Crafty Cupboard said...

Ha ha, #3 is false, though not a stretch of the imagination ;) I love Ruby!

Anonymous said...

Really love the Ruby line! I would say No. 3 is a stretch from the truth :).

Rebecca said...

Well, you'd need over 85 million yards of fabric to go around the world twice, so I'm guessing #3 is false.

Four dogs and one quilter said...

Love Bonnie and Camille, but I think #3 is untrue.

Southern Gal said...

(I read Camille's blog, so I'm pretty sure that's correct.)

#3 is false. Keep doing what you're doing. I love your fabric and designs.

Mrs. Searle said...

Wow. I'm trying to imagine how big their houses would have to be to hold that much fabric. I'm going with #3. That's cool that they share a birthday!

Anonymous said...

#3 is not true. I love Ruby and would like to win some!
Greetings, Inka from Germany

Kim said...

I bet it's close, but #3 is false....and I want some Ruby!!! :)

Jennifer said...

Originally I was going to say #3, but I wouldn't be surprised to find out that it is true. So, I guess that means I'm going with #2.

Melody said...

I believe #3 is false - love this new line - actually love all their fabric lines! :)

Jenn said...

Had to do the math to see how many yards of fabric #3 would be. I'm going with that crazy answer. :)

Garnet said...

I'll guess 2.

A Little Blue Dragonfly said...

I'm guessing that #3 is false, but not by much! LOVE Ruby! Thanks for the chance to win some! :)

Little Bluebell (Adrianne) said...

Great Grandma Ruby sounds like so much fun!! #3 is false.

Tanya said...

I believe #3 is false :)

Becky said...

I had a wonderful relative named Ruby, too. We called her Nanny Ruby. Thanks for bringing wonderful memories to mind! Great looking collection!

Let's say number 3 is false or not entirely true:)

charlotte said...

#3 is false. I love Ruby. The colors are so pretty. I had a grandmother named Ruby too. She had reddish hair too...for awhile. Then she dyed it again!

Sarina said...

I remember reading about Dr. Pepper and shared birthdays, so #3 is not true. Love Ruby... so pretty! Thanks for the chance to win some!

poppyinpink said...

I heard that somepart of the body, blood vessels if laid end on end perhaps could circle the earth (which blew my mind) but if anyone's stash could do it I would think you are counting threads...so #3? but who knows?(Well, they do of course!) I agree with their description of this pretty fabric.

tracy_a said...

I guess #3 is false - that's a lot of yardage! Thanks for interview - Ruby looks great and sounds like it has a great namesake!

Sunni @Love Affair with my Brother said...

#3 is probably almost true, but I'm going with false! Thanks for making it easy on us!

Clyda and John said...

I am going with # 3, but that sure would be awesome if they did! Love this line of fabric, so cute!

Sharon Pernes said...

I think 3 is incorrect

TinksDaughter said...

I think #3 is the lie. Probably not by much though.

Michele said...

Statement 3 is false I believe. I read their blogs so I'm pretty sure it's 3. Anyway, that would be a ginormous of fabric! Way more than two houses full I would think!

Jodie said...

I would use these three words to describe Ruby as soft, vintage, and bright. I am pretty sure that #3 is false. If it's not I am so jealous.

babiesdoc said...

the circumference of the earth is 24500+ miles depending on where it is measured

so there are 5280 feet or 1760 yards per mile

so that would mean 86,240,000 yards

Where would they store it?

so #3 is wrong!

Karen said...

I would have to say number 3 is false as I know Camille is a big Dr. Pepper fan like me and I believe I have read in the past they have the same birthdays. Hopefully I got my info right!

Laura said...

#3 is the lie. I LOVE Ruby. I can't wait to get some!

Pontos da Flávia said...

I will say 3! I love Camilles work, the colors are so calm...

Melanie said...

While I'm sure Bonnie and Camille have a lot of fabric between them, #3 cannot be true!

Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

Laurie said...

I love Bonnie and Camille's fabrics. # 3 is false.

Lei said...

I think # 3 is incorrect as well. I know they share a birthday.

Cheree @ The Morning Latte said...

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...
