New Fabric Collection, April Showers by Bonnie & Camille for Moda Fabrics
April Showers bring May flowers, and luckily April Showers has arrived! April Showers, Bonnie & Camille's latest collection for Moda Fabrics, is perfect for a playful Springtime project. Put on your rain boots and grab your umbrella, we are heading into the rain with Bonnie & Camille!
Hello there everyone! We are so happy to be here chatting with you on the Fat Quarter Shop blog today and sharing our newest line for Moda,
This was such a cheerful line for us to design. Our inspiration always comes from different places, but with this line, it was a scrap of an umbrella
feedsack that we came across and immediately fell in love with. We knew we had to design a line around it, and knew it had to be called April
Showers, and had to include plenty of May flowers.
We thought it would be fun to talk about some of our favorites the line, so here goes!
Our favorite April Showers prints!
Bonnie: That’s like asking me to choose a favorite child. (Camille: Which would be me, of course!) Hmm… I would have to say the aqua umbrella print.
There is something so sweet about those red umbrellas. I also used just about every inch of my red polka dots when I was designing.
It would be a tie for me between the navy stripe, which I’ve used for just about every binding since April Showers arrived, and the navy floral,
which is just the right amount of crazy for me.
Our favorite April Showrs projects!
Bonnie: My favorite project to sew this time was my Cabin Christmas quilt. It was so fast to put together, and it was fun to use the line in a
different way. Who knew that just using the red and greens from such a cheery springy line could make such a pretty Christmas quilt.
Camille: I would probably have to say my Puddle Jumping quilt. I loved using just the blues and the greens, and it has
such a crisp, fresh feel. I’m about to start a scrappy Puddle Jumping, so stop by my Instagram to follow along
and say hello!
What we are up to now!
Bonnie: Well, I just finished up my Charm Pack Cherry quilt, and I have another one on my list for a friend. I’m also working on some new designs
which I’ll be showing on my blog soon, so keep an eye out.
Camille: Back in October I made a few mini versions of my new quilts for my Quilt Market booth and had lots of requests for patterns, which is how
my mini quilt series was started. I’ve since made a few more mini patterns, and have loved seeing them pop up as people sew and hang them in
their sewing spaces. I guess you could say I have mini fever!
Just because no post is complete without too many photos, here are a few more of our April Showers projects.
Now that we’ve spilled our favorites, we would love to hear yours! What is your favorite April Showers print or project?
Thanks for having us!
Bonnie & Camille
