4th of July Blog Tour - Day 3

Hello to everyone!  This has been a wonderful blog tour so far and I'm sure you will continue to love it.  Your host for today is:

Sweetwater - Lisa, http://www.sweetwater.typepad.com/

I have never met the girls from Sweetwater but they seem very nice through our correspondence over email.  I really love their fabrics and their latest line, Countdown to Christmas is fabulous!  I have a fat quarter bundle and we have also ordered some for a project that will be on bundlesandbolts.com later this year.  It is classic but whimsical and I just love it.  My friend, Sue who I have bundlesandbolts.com with is a huge fan of their fabric too.  Here is sampling of their Countdown to Christmas line. 



I forgot to tell you how I met Sherri from This & That Patterns.  Last year after Quilt Market, I was honored to be invited to a 2 day Designer Retreat hosted by American Patchwork & Quilting.  As you know, APQ is one of my favorite magazines and I was thrilled.  Sherri and I were grouped along with Terry from Atkinson Design and Julie from J. J. Stitches in Sun Prairie, WI for a group project.  We had a blast, Terry is a riot and we all laughed the whole time.  When I saw Sherri again at Quilt Market in May, I asked her if she would like to join my blog hop.  She readily agreed and asked if the girls in Sweetwater could come.  I was thrilled and of course said, yes.  Sherri is super nice and very talented.  I instantly liked her when I met her.

For those of you who live in the Rockford area, I will be lecturing at Sinnissippi Quilt Guild this coming Thursday.  I will be giving 2 talks, one at 1:00 pm and the other at 7:00 pm.  If you can make it, I'd love to see you! 

Here are tomorrow's blog hosts:

Quilter's Window - Denise, http://www.quilterswindow.com/blog/
A Quilting Life - Sherri, http://www.aquiltinglife.com/

See you tomorrow!

I've been a big fan of Sweetwater from the start! I was so happy when submitted the name for my hometown and it got in their new line in big, capital letters! I've done several of Sherri's patterns as well - all fun! Sounds like your retreat with her and Terri was definitely a blast!
Cheers!
