Welcome Guest Blogger #5 Jacqueline

Today Jacqueline from Handmade With Love is my guest. She has made some amazing quilts with Sweetwater lines.

My love affair with Sweetwater started about a year ago... 
Maybe a year and a half. 
I had stumbled across a wonderful online fabric shop - Above All Fabric  - 
and saw this thing called a layer cake. 
Yes, I really was that clueless about pre-cuts.

This showed up in the mail just a few days after that glorious discovery. 
About the same time I found this blog called the bake shop something or another. 
I could NEVER remember what it was called. 
I had to Google search it five or six times before I remembered to bookmark it. 
By that time, I had it firmly in my head that it was the Moda Bake Shop
It was there that I found what this beautiful layer cake would be made into. 

My faithful Helper - Panzie


My dear wee sister took this one to college with her! =) 

The other quilt from Pure: 

And a bonus quilt - this one was made from scraps from the other two from the Get Framed  tutorial by Crystal Hendrix of Hendrixville

This little guy has a new home with a good friend's new baby boy! 
I now have a stash of Sunkissed. 

I still don't have any idea what I want to do with it. 
I have made this cute little skirt for my wee one from an Oliver & S tutorial 

Now to decide what to do with the rest of my stash... 

Have I mentioned that I LOVE Sweetwater??? 
I CANNOT wait to get my hands on some Hometown. 
Time to budget... ;-)
Or expand on the budget! 

A HUGE THANK YOU to Sha for letting me share my love!

Have I ever mentioned where I have found all my guest bloggers? I tweet, almost as much as I sew, which keeps me very busy, lol. Everyone one of the guest bloggers I have ever had on this blog answered my call for help with this series. You can find me on twitter from the twitter button on the right hand side bar.

The Designer Select series for October will either be Me and My Sister or Kate Spain. If you would like to guest blog and show us what you have made with fabric from either of these designers lines let me know. I would love love love you to join me!

Sha :) 


  1. I don't do the whole twitter thing although I do have an account somewhere. But I love Sweetwater and thank you for the share today. I'm going to a quilt show close to the home of Sweetwater this weekend so hope they'll be there so I have get my hands on HOmetown! In person.

  2. I have a softspot for Sunkissed fabrics - its what I used for my first (and so far, only) quilt! You can see it here - http://www.sewrayme.co.uk/2011/03/introducing-my-first-quilt.html
