Editorial Reviews

Bella Modiste
From an early age Camille Roskelley the author of Simplify:Quilts for the Modern Home (Camille Roskelley/Stash Books (C&T Publishing) was making quilts, it seemed as though she always had a quilting project in the works. This was more than just a passing fancy for her and these early childhood inspirations can be seen in the products she designs for her company Thimble Blossoms. Now more than a hobby, from 2007 until now, she has created over 40 original quilt patterns. In 2008 Camille and her mother(Bonnie Olaveson) were approached by Moda and asked to design fabric, this collaboration has produced three lines of fabric; Cotton Blossoms, Simple Abundance, and Bliss. It is ironic that she would contribute designs to the cornucopia of quilt fabrics on the market, as in her own words, she said When I first began quilting, fabric selection seemed a little overwhelming to walk into a store and just know what would look great together? Forget about it. Somewhere along the line I was introduced to a charm pack and it was love at first sight. Indeed charm packs make life simpler for not just beginning quilters but experienced ones as well. For those unfamiliar with the term, charm packs consist of 5*5 squares of coordinating fabric from the same collection of fabric and typically contain 25-40 squares in the bundle. Besides charm packs Camille also explains common quilting supply terms, such as layer cakes, jelly rolls, honey buns, turnovers, and fat quarters. She also gives a nice concise list of necessary and optional tools, from this simple start she gently leads the reader into projects of increasing complexity. Those loyal enough to stick with her to the end will walk away a different quilter than they were when they started. I highly recommend that if you have an interest in quilting that you add this wonderful book to your library. Camille will teach you how to create such items as: a little boys quilt, a darling sweet pea girl's quilt with a slightly scalloped edging (really cute!),a beautiful spot on quilt (for the polka dot lover), toss pillows in several different designs,and even quilted table toppers,and more. You'll find patterns for all of the projects are included in the back of the book.

Camille Roskelley is one of lucky people who gets to play with fabric while staying at home and get paid for it! A fabric designer, quilt maker and now author, Camille is a talented and busy designer and mother of 2 boys. The quilts in her first book showcase some of her tips for simplifying your life with easy and fun quilts in a variety of sizes - mostly small - baby or table topper quilts (and cushions) there are a couple of slightly more challenging quilts - but mostly the quilts in this book are for the busy crafter who doesn't have time for a lot of fuss and likes to squeeze in a quick quilt in amongst an otherwise hectic schedule.I also like that Camille didn't only stick to using her fabrics in her designs - instead she has branched out and used some collections by her fellow Moda fabric designers - and the quilts in this book use pre-cut fabrics - gotta love those! Also there are a rather large percentage of the quilts in this book catering to a more masculine palette - with 2 boys I guess thats natural!Totally cute book - aimed at the busy or beginner quilter - with a range of simple geometric and traditional block designs - but with a bit of a modern slant.

Celebrating fabric arts for a handmade lifestyle, Stash Books, an imprint of C&T Publishing, released this book of eight quilt projects and 4 pillow patterns. The author, Camille Roskelley is a young pattern designer, who has designed three fabric lines for Moda with her mom, Bonnie Olaveson. Simplify is designed to build quiltmaking skills with easy-to-make and fun projects that feature pre-cut strips or fat quarters. The text is friendly and fun to read, the projects are cheerful and bright, and the book is sprinkled with Camille's practical Keeping it Simple tips.
From the Publisher
Camille Roskelley, the designer behind Thimble Blossoms label, has created nine quilts and four cushions that are about simple design, simple projects, simple fabric selection. As the mother of two young boys, she's dedicated it to every other mom out there who wants to make something that just stays done. The projects are all based on traditional patchwork with something fresh added to the mix to lift them out of the ordinary: a bow, an unusual boarder treatment, a spot of applique and so on. Camille loves working with pre-cuts (jelly rolls, charm squares) so if you do too, you'll take particular delight in these projects...

    Not your Grandma's quilt book!

    This is not your Grandma's quilt book! Modern, simplified, easy to create quilts for our busy lives. From fabric to techniques to designs, Camille Roskelley has done an excellent job in simplifying the art of quilting. I have a love for fat quarters, jelly rolls, and charm packs as I don't have enough time to spend hours searching for, cutting out, and dealing with larger pieces of fabric. And I want a beautiful finished product that didn't take me weeks to create. (I can hear you saying 'YES'!) First thing I noticed besides the beautiful designs, was her simplified way of making circles for quilts, the modern line quilting and her tips for simplifying your life. My first project? The 'Little Man' quilt for my grandson! Or maybe the "Spot On" for me!
