sweet as honey grand giveaway! (4)

hello, lovelies! i’m so excited to personally offer you a grand giveaway today! i’ve bundled up a big stack of my latest fabric collection, sweet as honey, and i’m ready to send it to one of you creative ladies (or gents!). enter to win 1 yard of each piece of sweet as honey in your choice of colorways (see below). that’s 10 yards total- valued at over $120!

before we get to the fun part, i wanted to share with you a little about the inspiration behind the collection. i happily designed sweet as honey while we were living in this sunny cottage on the central coast of california (we’re now snuggled up in the mountains of north carolina!). the days were always sunny and the weather was always perfect. in fact, it was like a little slice of heaven! i gardened year round and always had fresh flowers ready to pick. i spent most of my time outdoors, soaking up nature in all it’s glory. our tiny town also just happened to have the sweetest honey i’ve ever tasted in my life. i purchased it from a local farmer and could eat it by the spoonfulls! in fact, i love it so much that i still have my friends mail me a jar every now and again. it rarely rained, but when it did i soaked up every drop. birds could be seen flying over the vineyard in front of our cottage at any given moment. it was the perfect place to dream up this fabric line and i’m so happy to share it with you. i hope it brings a little sunshine to home!

i’ll be posting more about this collection, my inspiration for the designs and several patterns for it soon, but for now i just wanted to share with you my delight in it’s availability. you can check your local quilt shop or specialty fabric shop for it, or buy it online from a stitch in time (my mom’s quilt shop- free shipping!), hawthorne threads or the fat quarter shop (just to name a few).

the first colorway (above) is called spring harvest. it’s bright and cheery, and reminiscent of freshly picked flowers. the second colorway (below), is called autumn harvest which is both bold and sophisticated. both are just as sweet as honey!

the perfect whatever bag - a free pattern! (5)

hello, friends! my wonderful mother and i have been working on a special little pattern to share with you. we call it the perfect ‘whatever’ bag, because it’s perfect for.. well.. whatever! it’s easy to make and super comfortable to wear. i also love that it features several rows of pretty ribbons, which are always fun to pick out for a project. we used 3 pieces from my reminisce fabric line (sweet nostalgia antique, wonderment teaberry & freshly picked sherbert) which you can find for purchase here and here.

to download the pattern: click on the image above to download the printable pdf pattern.

reminisce is a nostalgic collection of bold & sugar-colored hues, inspired by hazy summer days filled with simple, yet memorable moments of picking flowers and enjoying their beauty.

click on the image above to watch the reminisce video, by art gallery fabrics featuring laura grosso. they’ve done such a beautiful job capturing the inspiration behind my collection (i cried when i watched it the first time!). it’s sophisticated, vintage, modern and sweet!

my mom is such a sweetie. she stenciled the entire back wall of my booth with my new falling daisies stencil. it was hard work but it turned out so pretty!

after only 3 short days, it was time to break down!

the art gallery fabrics girls! bonnie christine (that’s me!), leah duncan, pat bravo, bari j, jeni baker and angela walters

my first experience having a booth at quilt market was so fun and incredibly inspiring. i’m not sure that i know what to do with myself now that’s it’s over! i was able to meet so many lovely people and experience the joy of quilt market from a whole new perspective.

next week i’ll already be putting the finishing touches on my next collection for art gallery fabrics which will debut this fall. i’m so excited about it, i can’t wait to let you start seeing little tidbits of it!

thanks so much for your support and general all around sweetness. you guys are the best. xox, bonnie
