The Fat Quarter Shop and Sweetwater have teamed up to present you with a Fat Quarter Shop Exclusive! Sweetwater has specially selected 12 prints and 3 solids from their Hometown collection for this special bundle you will only find at the Fat Quarter Shop.

Q: What inspired you to pick the colors and designs in your Designer Select Fat Quarter Bundle?

Q: What are 3 words you would choose to describe this collection, not including any of the fabric designs!



*2 Truths and a Lie* 
1. We are a family ran business – A mother and 2 daughters.
2. I love to travel the world and find design inspiration.
3. Our closest Target is 60 miles away!

One of the 3 statements is false. Comment on this post telling me which statement you think is false. Answer correctly and you have a chance to win Sweetwater’s Designer Select Fat Quarter Bundle!

You have exactly one week from the post date.
Good Luck!


  1. Well I know number 1 is correct because I met you guys a few years ago at Quilt Market, and Targets can be few and far between in Colorado. So, I am guessing number 2!

  2. I'm guessing #3 is false. Crossing fingers I am the winner of these fantabulous(is that a word?!) fabrics πŸ™‚

  3. from MaryJ.B.—-Number 2 is the false statement.

    It would be frustrating to be so far from a Target store. We're 5 hours from a BUNCH of stores we'd love to shop at without having to drive to another state, but fortunately we do have Target here in our hometown.

    Love your Designer Select choices!!

  4. Definitely #2 is false. We also live in the land of Target being over an hour away, so I know it's true! Also remember reading about the family run biz. Love this collection!

  5. Oh how I love Sweetwater Fabric. I know that #2 is false. They are a hometown kind of family so I think they draw their inspiration from the beauty that surrounds them every day. How perfect is that??? Hugs…

  6. I think #2 is wrong too – They're just too busy to travel! I'd LOVE more hometown – I bought a jelly roll and it's just not enough!

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  7. I think #2 is false. It's just too sad to think of the closest Target being 60 miles away, and besides Hometown says it all.

  8. I think I'm going with the majority here – #2 is false! Sometimes the best inspiration comes from right in your own backyard πŸ™‚

  9. Number 2 must be the false statement. We all know they're family and no one in their right minds would live 60 miles from Target. I'm country, but that's insane, people.

  10. Woo! I just learned/read so much on Sweetwater on the net to find the right answer! Now I am sure that #2 is the false one!
    I love the fabric designs from Sweetwater!

  11. I think #2 is incorrect. You are a family run business, so there isn't much time to travel the world. You probably barely have enough time to get to Target once a week! As for inspiration, you can cruise the web for anything you're looking for, so is not necessary to travel the world. Love your site!

  12. I would have to say that this is a group who doesn't need to travel the world to find inspiration. And as a small-town girl myself, I totally understand that the nearest Target can, indeed, be 60 miles away. πŸ˜‰

  13. I'm with all the other folks that think #2 is false. Especially because of the name of the collection – hometown!

  14. You gals look like people who appreciate their homes and families and enjoy being home. I think #2 would be the false statement.

  15. I think #2 is the lie. Thanks for the chance to play. Hope I'm the lucky winner! Love the fabric selection always but especially this week!

  16. I love Sweetwater! I'm guessing that # 2 is the false statement. I too think they find there inspiration in their "Hometown" and own backyard. I live 3 hours from a Target. I hope I win!

  17. I think #2 is false and not because everyone else said so. 1.)True. Mother looks like a proud mother with her 2 lovely daughters. 3)True.In some cases Target is not right around the corner.

    2)False, you do not have to travel to find inspiration. Its always in your Hometown.

  18. Sadly number 2 is false. I understand about living far from Target. Once upon a time we lived 30 miles from the nearest Wendy's

  19. I think #2 is false. While they might want to trouble they are comfy at home and dont have the time! There is plenty of inspiration right here.

  20. I think the lie is #2, though the first part of it is probably true… that' you love to travel the world. I'm guessing though that you're too busy creating to actually find any time for travel! Thanks for this super giveaway and the chance to win.

  21. Well, coming from Australia I would have to agree #2 is incorrect. The world has come to you with this collection.

  22. I am guessing number 2 is wrong. Love Sweetwater and love this new collection!

  23. For some reason I believe their Target is that far. What a shame! I live in my Target lol. I think I'll go with the second statement as being false. Hope I'm right!

  24. I'm guessing number 2 is false…
    Their collections does not look like they are inspired by exotic places. They are wonderful as they are, regardless where the inspiration are from.

  25. These have been on my radar forever! I LOVE all of Sweetwater's fabrics, creations and just everything about them.

    I believe #2 is false just like most πŸ™‚

  26. It has to be #2, but wow is it hard to believe there is someplace with no Target for 60 miles! I mean, no close Target fix???? lol!
    Love the fabric, will be so happy if I win because I can use the fabric for my label crew projects!!! πŸ™‚

  27. I think #3 is a lie. Target's are everywhere. Would love to win this beautiful selection of fabrics. You are so blessed to be able to work together being so creative & bringing quilters such beautiful desins to work with.

  28. Hmmm, one and three both have the plural of the pronoun (We and Our), while two uses the singular (I). Since Sweetwater is a family team, I'm guessing that Number two is false.

  29. The first answer to your first question is: All of the above.
    As, for the second question I believe
    #3 is incorrect. Lovely, fabric. I love red so this is something I would buy:) wish me luck!!!!!

  30. Oops…. I meant that # 2 was the incorrect statement. That is what happens when you try to read on your small IPad screen!!

  31. I would say #2 is false. LOVE
    Sweetwater! Just putting boarders on my "Make Life" quilt. Then on to the perfect pattern for "Pure". "Hometown" would be an amazing addition to my Sweetwater collection:) Ok, so I am their groupie:)

  32. I will also have to say #2 is false. We might like to travel, but to get ideas is usually right where we spend the most time, right at home. I would love to get a bundle of this gorgeous fabric selection.

  33. Hi, I think this color palette is 3) sophisticated I hope that number 2) is the lie. Sorry if you really, truly live so far away from Target. Accckkk!

    Thanks for the fun giveaway for this gorgeous fabric!

  34. I am guessing #2 — and I just love this fabric line — the red really appeals to me. Thanks for the chance to win.

  35. I am guessing that your target is closer to you than 60 miles- We are getting Target next year or the year after here in Canada.
    Sweetwater is a lovely line of fabric.
    Thanks for the chance to win.
    Regards from Western Canada,

  36. # 2 is the lie. I am in love with this fabric line and am so excited it is all finally here. I am saving up my pennies for some of this lovely fabric. Thanks for the chance to win!!

  37. I think #2. I love to travel the world and find design inspiration is false. Thanks for the chance to win.

  38. Having lived in Colorado, Wyoming and Nebraska, I am pretty sure that #3 is true and I know #1 is true so the false statement has to be #2. We homespun gals don't have to travel the world for ideas, we have plenty of nature inspired ideas around us. Thanks for the chance to win a bundle of fabric I have been wanting soooo bad.

  39. I think #2 is the lie – they are all "Hometown" gals & don't stray too far for their inspiration. Great fabric bundle – thanks for the chance to win it.

  40. I have no idea, but everyone is guessing / knowing no. 2 is false, so that is my guess too.
    Wonderful colours this collection.

  41. I think that number 2 is false, mainly because it starts with 'I' and that doesn't fit with the family group

  42. I am going to say # 2 is a lie. With such beautiful designers that design such awesome prints why travel the world. Sure hope I get to win the pack.

  43. i believe that #2 is false. I know they asked people to send in their hometown names to their blog and they were overwhelmed with submissions.
    i love this fabric so much!!, thanks for the chance.

  44. I am guessing that #2 is false – would love to win this gorgeous fabric!! I really am a Hometown gal… I am living in the same town that I was born in (47 years ago – yipes!)

  45. I think #2 is false, because it's in the singular…and there are three in Sweetwater! Hope I win. Beautiful colors with great contrast.

  46. I am going to guess probably the wrong one BUT, I say #3. There could be a city further out from town that is this far from shopping and a Target store.

  47. I think # 2 is the lie. I'd LOVE to win this fabric! Love Hometown, and also their Countdown to Christmas fabric!!

  48. I absolutely love your new Sweetwater's Designer Select series and I have a suspicion that #2 is the lie. Gosh, I hope I'm correct. That fabric is out of this world!

  49. I think #2 is the "Lie"….thank you for the opportunity to win this fabulous fabric!

  50. Of course #2 is false! I don't see any international cities on their Hometown line. It's so very Authentic in origin and ever so lightly Sunkissed… definitely a Pure pleasure!!

  51. I'll take a wild stab in the dark and guess that #2 is false!

    Love, love, LOVE Hometown and I would be more than thrilled to win some – thanks for the chance!

  52. Hi, I think that your fabric is inspired by life in this good old USA, specifically in your HOMETOWN. So that makes #2 false.

  53. I think #2is false. I believe their inspiration comes from around them in their "Hometown".

  54. LOVE this new design! #2 is false. Think of all the wonderful things you could create with this selection!!??

  55. I truly believe #3 is a lie. And I would love to make my very 1st "real" quilt with the fabric bundle! Yay! Hubby and I need a new bed quilt, it would be perfect!!

  56. I would have to say that number 3 is false, at least for your sake i hope that it is. I can't imagine life with no target close by.

  57. #2 is false…though I imagine you'd come up with more incredible designs if you did travel the world. Thanks for 'hometown'-it's marvelous.

  58. How fun!
    I think statement number 2 is a lie!
    I have to believe someone besides me is 6o miles away from something!!!!

  59. I didn't read the other answers, but since I have been learning more about these designers, I think that #2 is false. Thanks for the chance to win.

  60. I'm going to say #2 is false. This fabric bundle is great. Keeping my fingers crossed. Thanks for another chance at a great giveaway.
