Welcome to Sweetwater Week

Today the 2nd Designer Select Series starts. For those of you who missed last month here's how it works. I am in the Fat Quarter Shop Designer Select FQ Club and every month I will pick one of the kits and make a project with it. I will have guest bloggers who will share with you their projects made with that designers fabric. The series will be full of interesting how-to's, lots of inspiration and prizes!
This months Designer Select FQ Club kit is Sweetwater's Hometown. I just love this line, not only because it has writing on some of the fabric, but I love the colors and how they all work together. I must admit that I am a huge fan of Sweetwater, I don't think there has been a line that I have not been 'Craizee' about.  

This month I will be making 2 different Hometown projects. The first one from Sweetwater's Simple Home book. This book is filled with all sorts of projects for every room in the house.

The second project will be the Home Sweet Home Quilt. I have never made a quilt with arrows before and am excited to try this. I am kinda a stickler for rules so the saying 'straight as an arrow' has always been something people have said about me, which makes this project perfect for me :)


And as always, there will be prizes. This month I have 2 prizes for you. Sweetwater has given me a Simple Home book and the Fat Quarter Shop has given me a Home Sweet Home Quilt kit with a backing set! That's 2 great prizes for this series!

Here's how to enter:
Note - You must be a follower of Craizee Corners.
1. Go to the Fat Quarter Shop's Hometown page and tell me which patterns listed you would like to make.
2. Tell me where your Hometown is.

There you go...2 simple ways to enter! Even though it's not for a chance to win, if you would like to spread the word about this (blog, tweet, facebook) I'd love that too.
Winners will be chosen by Mr. Random on Monday September 19th, first thing in the morning.

I hope you enjoy this series!
Check back tomorrow when Jennifer from All Things Belle visits Craizee Corners.

  73. I love that book! It is at the top of my wishlist! Although they are amazing, most of the patterns have too much negative space for my taste. I do like the house table topper though. Very cute!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  122. I love fabric with words on it, and this line is one of the best I've seen. Though I'm not usually a fan of 'quilts made of big squares', I think that would be the best display of the Hometown fabrics.

    Having said that, none of the featured quilt patterns really seem to take advantage of/make the best use of the Hometown prints. Of all of them, the Down Home Tote pattern would probably be my choice.

    ReplyDelete
  123. And my hometown is Portland, OR. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  124. I like the intersection quilt
    my hometown is arnold pa

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  127. My hometown is Lincoln, NE -- did I say that already? Sorry if it's repeated!

    ReplyDelete
  128. Intersection or Doc Schnibbles would be my choice. I really love the reds in the line. Red is my favorite color.

    Regards,
    Anna
