Bonnie and Camille met on June 10, 1983 when Camille came into the world on Bonnie’s 24th birthday. Not only do the two share a family and a birthday, they also share a love of quilting and an all out obsession with fabric.Since starting her company Cotton Way in 1990, Bonnie has designed over 300 patterns. She currently resides in Idaho, has a wonderful husband, 5 children, and enjoys spoiling her 15 beautiful grandchildren. When she’s not busy designing, she enjoys decorating her home and boating with the family.Camille’s pattern company Thimble Blossoms published it’s first pattern in 2007 while she was raising her three energetic little boys. A few of her favorite things are sewing with friends, spending time at the lake with her family and cookies of any kind. You can find her day-to-day quilting on Instagram @thimbleblossoms.

This mother daughter team blends trendy with traditional, and has the unique perspective of two generations of quilters. Their hope is that you, too, may be able to start a new quilt day tradition as mothers and daughters.
