NEW Daysail Patterns! YAY!!!

Today I am so happy to share with you my new patterns made with our 
Bonnie and Camille Daysail fabric collection.
We will be showing this fabric collection at the International Quilt Market in October and 
it will ship to your local quilt shop in February. 
The patterns are available now.

It's always so hard to work on these projects for weeks and not show them,
but after many hours of designing, cutting, sewing, pressing and binding,
FINALLY, they are ready!

My first and very favorite quilt this time is Smooth Sailing.  
It is a large quilt measuring 83" x 91". 
As you can see, there are 4 different boats in diagonal rows.

One that has a Pinwheel,

One with a Friendship Star.

a Log Cabin block,

and a Churn Dash. 

Some face one way and some the other.

The sailboat print in aqua seemed like the obvious choice for the back and I used the stripe for 3 of my 4 quilt bindings. They are just so perfect, I couldn't resist. 

Molly of Lovely Threads did a great job quilting this one. 
Notice the clouds in the sky, the waves in the water and the stones down the pole?
Thanks so much Molly! 

 I am really ready for some Smooth Sailing!

Our Daysail line is great for baby boy quilts, so I just had to make two.
So many fun dots and stripes.
Both quilts are 42" x 42". 

This Anchor quilt is simple and quick using fat quarters and a few jelly roll strips.

The Waves quilt is made with jelly rolls and is really fast as well.

If you look closely, you can see that the white background print 
is a white on white dot, great for texture.

The text print is one of my favorites in the line and I used it for the back of this quilt.  
In fact, I couldn't resist using it in every single project. 
Yes, striped binding again.

Next up, High Tide.
This quilt is large as well, 78" x 96" and Fat Quarter Friendly.

LeAnn Powell quilted this one and I chose an all over paisley that looks like 
water splashing. 

Thanks LeAnn!

You can see how the floral prints mix so well with all the stripes and dots.

I used the red text print for the stones and the binding on this one. 
I thought it framed it nicely.

For those of you that didn't happen to see that I introduced this new bag pattern 
last week, this is my new Sew on the Go Bag pattern made with
our Miss Kate fabric line. Miss Kate is in quilt shops NOW! 

It's the perfect bag to put on your lap while doing your hand work as you travel.

 The front pocket unzips to reveal scissors, thread and everything you might need for 
the project you are working on. 

 Your thread and scissors can't fall down into your seat and get lost.

This cute little button to holds everything in place.

So, there you have it.
Which one is your favorite?

My new patterns are all in the shop today as paper or PDF's . 

Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Stitching,


  1. Oh, my goodness...they are all gorgeous! I was just about to turn off my computer and checked my blogroll one more glad I got to see them, and I'm the first to comment, too! Congrats again!!!!

  2. Smooth Sailing...Love it!! And the anchors, so cute! Great job and can't wait for Daysail!

  3. I really wish we could get day sail straight away. I love all the patterns but the first and the last are my faves.

  4. Love Smooth Sailing! And High Tide! Perhaps you wanna join the bandwagon and make the last one into a mini? I would buy it because although I love the two quilts they're too big for me to handle.

  5. Such beautiful patterns! Love them all!! :) x

  6. All patterns are lovely Bonnie.

  7. Just gorgeous! I love 'Smooth Sailing' and all those quilt block insignias on the sails: so clever. x

  8. Sew on the Go Bag is my fave!!! High Tide is my fave for the quilt patterns!!! All soooo very lovely! Have a blessed day in the Lord, Bonnie. :)

  9. Bonnie, these patterns are all wonderful. You really outdid yourself this time! I really don't know which one to make first.

  10. Love them all! Your fabric lines and patterns are always so inspiring!!!

  11. Wow, Bonnie. Wonderful new patterns. Your "Sew on the Go" bag is amazing. And I really like High Tide. How do you keep coming up with such wonderful ideas!?! Good job!

  12. Hi, I did buy the High Tide and love the Smooth Sailing. Could you remind me of what paper pattern was coming out this next year, that was paid for in advance? I know I bought one but can't remember which pattern. You wrote it wouldn't be available until Spring 2015. Thank you.

  13. Oh, wow! All the quilts are adorable and that fabric is so much fun. My favorite is the sewing tote. What a clever design.

  14. what size zippers does the sew-n-go bag take?

  15. Thanks for the sharing, Cheers!

  16. How much do you sell these bags for? This is what I am looking for to cross stitch in. Or where can I find the pattern for this?
