Sweet Bundles......

Woo Hoo, here's some exciting news for those of you who love gorgeous fabrics....... 

really who doesn't??   

Two gorgeous ladies have started up a wonderful new fabric shop.  One became a good friend of mine when her husband received a quilt....... and it is time to share what they are doing with you all......


Sweet Bundles is the passion project of two Aussie military wives. They are busy mums who love their husbands, children and sweet fabrics - ummmmm.....not necessarily in that order.  

They are able to offer stash building bundles, 


bindings made-to-order (yes!!! I would love someone else to make my bindings!!!!!!) 


and backings at bargain prices. 



Quality fabrics including Moda, Art Gallery, Riley Blake & more are curated into perfect little bundles of sweetness.


Sweet Bundles offer a range of single colour bundles, an inspired weekly release and




special mixed coloured bundles based on the AHQ BOM and all of those footy team colours!!




Their bundles are usually 8 metric fat quarters for $30. 
Most fabrics are available as yardage starting at $12 per metre.
They are happy to offer free shipping for AHQ orders

Please email sweetbundlefabrics@gmail.com or comment on the Facebook or instagram post you are interested in.

Happy Quilting!

Till next time.... keep spreading the word and happy stitching!
