Sweet Strips Giveaway | Sweet On You Quilt Along

All posts may contain affiliate links.

This week I sliced into a few sweet strips to make my sweet hearts for block 1 of the Sweet on You mystery quilt along and I could not be more excited! Based on some of your sweet notes, I know that I’m not alone.

Let me show you how to look at your scraps in a whole new way by layering texture with pattern. Join me on the mystery Sweet On You quilt along adventure.

So, even though I know that a few of you are still working on your blocks, I thought it would be fun to share some of the amazing Cuddle® fabrics that Shannon Fabrics sent my way. Honestly, they were so generous and sent such a wide assortment of fun colors and patterns, that I feel guilty keeping them all to myself!




Before I get to the giveaway details, let’s chat about the row layout. Sweet On You is a horizontal strip layout, made from 9 rows, 6 blocks, sashing and boarders.  This quilt is all about the scraps! I highly encourage you to just have fun and play with fabrics from your stash.

  62. Being a military family our first thoughts is to gift those in outlying areas or fire zones (war), something that lets them know they are not forgotten. We’ve used the Cuddle Fabrics for pillows & pillow cases, blankets, & even small blocks stuffed with shredded foam or batting. These blocks are used as hand exercisers so we fill them pretty full. Items that are made at home mean so much to the military men & women; it is pure pleasure to be able to do something!
