Just a peek at our Label Crew project for April. A great alternative to the old brown bag- this Lunch Sack is cute and practical. And saves on paper bags- just throw it in the washer and use again and again. The outside is made from prairie cloth and the lining is Road 15 fabric: For more info on the Label Club, click here.

Yes, I know. I told you I would choose a winner of the Elementary fabric on Friday. Only trouble is, I was at home and my internet service is awful out where I live. In the middle of nowhere. But for some reason, it started working just fine today, so I better hurry and post this! Congratulations to Kenna who wrote: I found a stack of authentic fat quarters by begging on IG. :) And this is amazing....it reminds me of the perfect child of PURE and AUTHENTIC with turquoise blue eyes. :) BTW, my favorite is the black and...

My sister designed these yesterday, and all I could say was ahh...... By the way, we don't have a little girl name Lucy- we just wish we did! These tags would look so cute on Easter baskets, but we are going to use them as "place cards" on our Easter table. So fun! If you would like the labels and/or fabric to make the tags, they are available in our store. If you order the labels, you will also get the simple instructions to make the tag- so no need to buy a separate pattern. Oh- and they coordinte with... Continue reading

First of all, thank you for all the Elementary love! We can't wait to get started on some quilts- we have them designed, but actually getting them finished is the hard part. Now, back to Easter projects. This one is my favorite. Meet Matilda, Charlie and Gus. These are easy to make and will be so cute in an Easter basket! If you would like the pattern or kit, they are available now in our store. I said these are my favorite, but I just got a glimpse of tomorrow's project. Maybe that is my favorite. Come back to see...

We are so excited to show you our newest fabric collection. But before we do, a little background about the collection. Remember this? As some of you know, that is Authentic. Our very first fabric collection for Moda. I have a special place in my heart for that collection- and one special shelf at our office has the last stack of Authentic fat quarters known to man sitting on it. But we aren't going to actually use it. We are going to look at it forever. Which leads me to Elementary. When we started designing, we knew we wanted something... Continue reading

Do you ever feel like you are just losing your mind because nothing is going right? Well, that is today. Or the last week, really. My computer crashed last week- there is nothing worse! So the whole process of getting a new computer, restoring my files, e-mail, whatever, lasted about a week. I was ready yesterday to get to work. But, no. I couldn't get my software on my new computer. Without boring you with all the technical details, the bottom line is: I CAN'T DO ANY WORK!!!! So, while I promised a new Easter project for yesterday, I couldn't... Continue reading

Happy Friday! Today we are so excited to be a part of Fat Quarter Shop's 2014 Designer Mystery Block of the Month. Although we aren't showing our individual block, we are allowed to share a few pics of the finished quilt. This year, the designer mystery quilt is all about stars. Our instructions were to design a star block and dedicate it to a "star". Hmmm....that was kind of tough. The star part. I don't really know any "stars". I would like to know some stars- Jennifer Aniston, Peyton Manning, Kenny Chesney, The Pioneer Woman. But I really don't want... Continue reading

We have been working on a new line of products and finally they are ready!! ( and I am soooo excited about them!) For a few years we have been printing iron on labels and have always said to ourselves, we need to try iron on transfers. While we still love our iron on labels we just wanted to try something a little different. This is what we came up with - Cute Kitchen Towels! and then we decided that we needed to give our customers many options so... we thought wouldn't it be fun if they could put their...

The Moda Blog Hop was so much fun- and now we are announcing our winner. The lucky winners of some "Wishes" fabric are: Katie who wrote: The letter S for sunny because it's cold here in North Dakota! and Cindy who wrote: 'S' is a good letter because it stands for Safe and Sound. That's something I tend to stress over as a mom. I always want my family members to be both safe and sound. Love all your fabrics by the way! "Noteworthy" probably being my most favorite. Congratulations, Katie and Cindy. A little sunshine will be coming your... Continue reading

Today it is all about the letter S........ Sweet, Sassy, Special letter S At Sweetwater we love letters because they form words and words are our favorite thing to put on fabric! From our very first line of fabric "Authentic" to "Hometown" to our most recent line "Wishes" we always find a way to incorporate words. The letter S is very special to us because we are We had a lot of fun making our "S" block so we made many letters to make the word the name of our newest fabric collection.

Hello again! It has been forever since we actually blogged. And since we are starting to get e-mails from sweet people wondering if we are okay, I thought I better sit down and actually write something. We are just fine- nobody died, we are still in business and believe it or not, we have lots of things happening here. There are probably lots of reasons we haven't blogged lately, but I think the biggest reason is sometimes you just need a break. You know how you can sometimes feel overwhelmed, over tired, and just need a break? Well, I think... Continue reading

It's Day #4 of Countdown To Kisses. And we have another one. Yep. Another one of these. Some of you may think, "Another kitchen towel?". And the answer is yes, another kitchen towel. The reason? When we release one, we really can't keep them in stock. So, besides the fact that they are really cute, super easy to make and make a great gift, everyone seems to love them. So here it is again! We also created 3 new labels to coordinate with this one. Of course, the labels can be used on other things- on a tag, a homemade... Continue reading

It's our second day of Countdown to Kisses, and today we feature the cutest little zippered bags. " These cuties use a new "Little Ink" swatch (just like we had for Christmas). The fabric kit includes the materials to make 4 bags (excluding the zippers). The pattern is sold in a separate listing. And since we couldn't just stop with the bags, we used the swatches to whip up some new pillows. If you want to make the pillows, just purchase the ink swatch- the pattern for the pillows automatically comes with the ink swatch, so no need to purchase... Continue reading
