Sweet as Honey by Bonnie Christine for Art Gallery Fabrics

Q: Tell us a little about the Sweet as Honey collection. What were you inspired by?
A:Sweet as Honey is a collection with a story. It’s a woodland themed line full of nestled deer, wildflowers and honey bees. I was inspired to create the line after exploring nature and spending a summer growing a garden that generously allowed for freshly picked flowers. It takes me to a most lovely place, where the sun is always shining, the birds fly free and the honey is extra sweet.

Q: What is your design process when beginning a new collection?
A:I love each and every part of the design process. I usually have an idea of what I want a collection to be about, then spend months snapping photos and sketching ideas. You’ll never find me without my camera (iPhone) and a sketchbook! After I feel comfortable with the amount of sketches I have, I usually jot down what I want each pattern to look like before I begin illustrating. They don’t always follow the ‘plan’, but being creative in applying color and arranging them in repeat is always my favorite part. It’s when they really come to life!

Q: What design trends are you currently exploring??
A:I’ve always been drawn to nature, so I love that woodland motifs are particularly ‘trendy’ right now. I plan to keep going on nature walks and exploring the outdoors for inspiration!

Q:What projects do you hope to see made with Sweet as Honey?
A:Oh, anything really! I’ll never get over the joy I experience when I see something made from one of my prints. I do think though, that Sweet as Honey naturally lends itself to farmer’s market bags, picnic blankets, summer hats and flowy blouses.

Q:What projects have you made using Sweet as Honey?
A:So far, we’ve made a beautiful hexagon quilt, market sling, honeycomb mug home, yoga mat or blanket strap, backpack, hexagon situpon, townie bag and a set of sweet napkins. just to name a few!

  1. I love that she was inspired by an overabundance of garden flowers. I was just looking out on massive amounts of snow this morning and daydreaming about last year's dahlia haul. πŸ™‚

    So much in my life is "Sweet as Honey," but I think my boys take the cake. They sincerely love & appreciate me as a mom – – there's not much sweeter than that!

  2. At the moment we are in our homes braving a nor'easter… 12" plus of snow on top of the 10" we got last week… so what's sweet as honey in my life right now? Well.. having beautiful fabrics and threads to stitch with until I'm able to get outside in the yard and play with real flowers! lol! Sweet as honey is a great line of fabric… Sunset Bee Sweet, Honey House and Bed of Daisies are my favorites in this collection…

  3. One thing that's sweet as honey to me is there are so many parks and natural areas near my home to enjoy. I love hiking, running and mountain biking. I am lucky and blessed with the beauty of nature. I love everything about this fabric collection and am keeping everything I can crossed in hopes of winning this bundle!

  4. What is sweet as honey right now about my life? My two wonderful little kids πŸ™‚ And getting ready to move to a new house!

  5. Well it could be because of the honey from my neighbors bee hives…but its my puppy that makes me smile while hubby is away. (my puppy is 12 years old)

  6. I have a job I enjoy working in a nursery and a beautiful piece of property to live in and garden on my days off…when the weather is bad for being in the garden I have a very sweet stash of fabrics to spend my time playing with! This life for me is sweet as honey!

  7. Right now there is a vase of fresh cut flowers on my kitchen table. The lovely colors and the fragrance are so sweet in this never ending winter!

  8. My grandson and granddaughter are "sweet as honey!, at least most of the time!! I love being with them and I can't wait for April when my third grandchild will arrive. Lovely line of fabric!

  9. I love this line. The colors come together and I can think of any number of patterns that Sweet as Honey would inspire. What makes my life sweet is looking forward to retirement with my husband of 37 years. We have big plans to settle somewhere new. Sweet as Honey would make a sweet addition to our new home together.

  10. Right now my life is sweet as honey in 80 deg weather & lots of sunshine! Sure different from all the snow I see in photos on the internet! So sweet to live in Hawaii!

  11. Beautiful fabric line! My dogs are sweet as honey! We have two Pembroke Welsh Corgis; they are always happy to see me when I come home from work and are so good-natured.

    Congratulations, Bonnie for the launching of your latest line! I really really like the prints that are available. I would love to make a light summer blouse with it. They all look amazing!
    Living in Washington, I count myself as very lucky! I am very grateful for the beautiful scenery that we have here. I love it when the birds are noisy and wake me up in the morning. I love just looking out the window and see a hummingbird (which I just saw, btw), it's so pretty here! I love going hiking with my husband, it's a great way to enjoy his company and the nature at the same time! That's my sweet (if not sweeter) as honey moments πŸ™‚

  13. Beautiful, happy fabric! Today, my honey sweetness came from spotting a robin in the midst of the worst winter in our history! Spring is surely on its way! Thanks for the amazing giveaway… another spot of honey today!

  14. There is just something about this collection that calls to me – I love the soft colors and happy feel.

    I am so grateful for so much in my life. But I am most grateful, right now, for my sister who is my best friend and sewing buddy and who I talk to every day even though we live 3000 miles apart. To me, the relationship I have with my sister could not be sweeter!!!

    Thanks for the chance to win this beautiful fabric!

  16. I am totally loving this line So soft & sweet. My littlest one makes my life soooo sweet. Would love to make her something with this fabric !!!

  17. My sweet as honey is spending time with my husband and two children – God put us together, we married at 39 (first marriage for both) and adopted our children from Romania – we are just so blessed!!!

  18. See Psalm 19:7-11 for things that are "sweeter than honey"! "The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul. The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart. The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever. The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More are they to be desired than gold, yea than much fine gold, SWEETER THAN HONEY and the honeycomb. Moreover, by them thy servant is warned, and in keeping of them there is great reward."
    I'd sure love to play with these fabrics – they are wonderful!

  21. I would have to say the thing in my life that is sweet as honey is my daughter. My boys are great but my daughter is sweet. Thanks for the chance to enter.

  22. The sweet as honey aspect of our lives right now is our grandson, whom I call Sweet Baby Wilson. He is everything and inspired me to make my very first quilt which was a gift to him for his first birthday Dec 20, 2013.

  23. Love the fabrics! I findmy life to be sweet as honey because I have "enough". I may not have all I want, but I have what I need, and that is a good feeling.

  24. sono disegni proprio dolci come il miele. bellissimi. la parte della mia vita dolce come il miele e' vedere i miei nipotini sempre sorridenti e contenti di quello che fanno. Sono piccoli ma se continuano cosi' la loro vita sara' dolcissima.
    Buona serata

  25. That's a really great fabric line!
    My sweet as honey aspect right now is thst there'll be spring pretty soon and everything is fine in my life and in the lives of the people I love:-)

  26. Life got busy and I took a break from quilting for about a decade. Sweet that a request for a quilt for my grand baby got me back into quilting again. In the last 2 years I have made over 30 quilts. A hexy quilt was a must in this line of fabrics! Need a closeup of the irregular edges on that hexy quilt. Who got to do the binding? I love doing a hand sewn binding.

  27. My family – natural/church, are "sweet as honey" – my daughter and husband are so great and supportive during the time of dealing with a family health situation. My church family is there all the time for me for great support, love and fellowship.

  28. Love the description of farmers market bags perfect fort this beautiful fabric! What's as sweet as honey for me? My life right now…married my Prince charming a few years ago and couldn't be happier!

  29. My sweet as a honey feeling right now is enjoying a great niece and great nephew under the age of 2 and two more on the way. I am sending loving thoughts as I sew the new arrivals a baby quilt each.

  30. this goes really nice with the honey honey collection which I loved!!!
    Beautiful fabrics.
    quilting is my sweet as honey

  31. Every day I spend at "the lake" is sweet as honey to me. A beautiful place to relax, picnic, camp, fish or just walk in nature. Nature revives me, saves me from my depressions and helps me thru life. Love this fabric! thank you.

  32. My family hands down and especially my kids!! No matter how crappy of a day I might be having they can always bring a smile to my face and help me to realize that its the little things that really matter most.

  33. what is my current Sweet as Honey moment is when I make the quilt deliveries to the nursing homes. I love seeing those wonderful faces light up when I place a quilt in their lap. So many times our elderly are put into nursing homes and then forgotten. When I show up they are just so happy to know they are still special and that someone still cares. To date I have delivered over 100 quilts and that is a lot of sweet smiles

  34. I think most moms will say seeing their children is sweet as honey, and I agree, but my kiddies are now 29, 28 and 25. When my oldest daughter comes for a visit with her new husband and my 3 sit on the couch and laugh and chat, it just makes my heart melt!!!
    I feel like I'm the luckiest mama in the world because I raised my kids to love one another!!!

  37. I love the hexagon quilt made with large hexies, so fun and up to date while still being a traditional design. My family are sweet as honey because they all like me at the moment, and as I have 3 teenagers that is not always the case.

  38. The warmth in a grandparents touch is sweet as honey, the sigh of a sleeping child is sweet as honey. The young love a newly married couple share is sweet as honey. We can all find the sweetness in life if we just look at what is around us.

  39. Love this fabric. Right now being able to stay home with my kids is sweet as honey, oh and being able to sew things for the people I love.heq

  41. The look of sunshine and the thought of melting snow is very sweet to me, just in time for Valentine's with my sweet husband.

  42. I enjoy reading about what inspires the different designers. I have much to be thankful for. In 2012 my husband had a cardiac arrest and was in a coma for 6 1/2 days and on top of that was not expected to live. I asked God for a miracle and he survived and is doing well. So the answer to my prayer and this past year and a half is "Sweet as Honey"

  43. This collection is so perfect for a nursery or baby quilt. I'm a new aunt, so I'd have to say that my niece is sweet as honey and cute as a bug too. πŸ˜‰

  44. I would love a flower garden like that! But between the dogs and the children I don't think it would last long ;). What makes my life "sweet as honey" is being surrounded by loved ones, with enough food to keep us fed and a roof to protect us from the rain. Everything else is a bonus.

  45. What's sweet as honey in my life right now? My almost 3yo giving my pregnant belly hugs and kisses every morning and every night, and telling her little sister that she loves her and cannot wait to meet her πŸ™‚ <3 <3

  46. Being so lucky to still have a child at home, two already grown up, last one is only 9 and she is so loving and caring, she is my sweet as honey.

  129. Beautiful quilting! In my life, my son and my pets are sweet as honey. They are all my "babies" – my boy, my four goats, my australian shepherd, and my baby chickens. Having little cuddly things to love makes life so sweet and also makes me want to sew quilts for us all!!

  131. Tomorrow I start my gardening chores…in AZ we finish cleaning the winter vegetables out and preparing the raised garden for spring planting. There's also the cutting back and trimming of the citrus trees and cannas so that new growth and flowering will be abundant. The scent of the warm air and cutting back plants always inspires new ideas for the plots and pots: what seeds shall be planted here, should I divide and share? Scents as sweet as honey, honeysuckle and lemon blossoms…this is what all the extra work is for. All of this in February…because in March I start new dresses for the grand children.

  132. What aspect of my life is "sweet as honey?" I'm very happily married. My husband and I don't get to spend a lot of time alone, but yesterday he worked a different shift and we just spent the day together running errands, having lunch, holding hands. It was AWESOME! Happy Valentine's Day!

  151. My life is "sweet as honey". I'm the mother of two fantastic children, and grandmother of two. Happy and healthy. All is good, and a chance to win a great sweet as honey fabric line.

  152. making charity lately, instead of donating them to charity, i will ask my preacher of people in special need and deliver it to them personally. that is my sweetest thing. one thing i would like to mention that in a neighboring county, one i did live in, there was a house fire that was started from a base board heater. the only survivors were an eleven year old girl, kaylin watson and her 39 year old father chad watson. they were life flighted to vanderbilt trauma and burn unit in nashville tn. kaylin has severe burns on her face and hands. her father has no skin on his hand and is severly burned. both had a large amount of smoke in their lungs. tragically, they lost 8 members of their family, kaylin's mother and seven of her brothers and sisters ranging in age from 15 years old to 4 your old twin boys. the community and others from as far away as texas are being very generous to father and daughter. but with all the outpouring of help, such as one company is building them a new house, a funeral home donated 8 caskets and burial plots, another person is paying for travel and motel expenses for anyone wanting to go visit them in the hospital. i think it would be great if quilters would donate a quilt to each of kaylin and her father. i dont have a link to guide you to, but it was in depoy kentucky in muhlenberg county. i honestly cannot think of anyone else more deserving of a love quilt. if i had fabric, i would certainly make one myself.

  153. Life with my three granddaughters is "Sweet as Honey"! They are beautiful….they are lovable ….and they are perfect! Love the fabric line and the bees! I spend time in North Carolina looking for honey that is close to home….always the best. Lee

  158. What makes my life "as sweet as honey" is my sweet bee loving husband. Not only does he treat me like a delicate sweet, he brings me sweet organic honey from his bees, always has my feelings at the forefront and in general is the sweetest, kindest, lovingest man I have ever known. 30 years in April is testimony in itself.

  159. I have 3 teenage sons and a sweet spouse, so there is an understandably small quantity of girly softness about. Quilting gives me a venue to indulge in color and pattern and texture to my heart's content. The photo of the hexy quilt in Sweet as Honey fabric made my day.
