"A fifth generation quilter
." When I first heard this description of Camille Roskelly, I imagined a tiny little lady in a pillbox hat and gloves... like that precious grandma in the Tweety Bird®
cartoons. Stereotype, right? Sorry about that. And, I've surely been taken to task, especially after meeting the young (26)
, lovely (how does she keep her hair so perfect?)
, and pregnant (baby boy number three)
Camille at The Creative Connection
conference in Minneapolis this past September. I was lucky enough to take one of her classes to create a sweet set of hot pads in the gorgeous Bliss
fabric collection by Bonnie & Camille for Moda. Not a pillbox hat in sight. Then, I learned the 'Bonnie' of Bonnie & Camille was her mother, Bonnie Olaveson. Also youthful and lovely, and the very proud grandma to nine (Camille's new bundle will make it an even ten). So much familial talent and beauty! I just had to find out more about this trendy yet traditional team.
