Sweet Treasures Quilt Fabric Shop {my Honest Review!}

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

I've a new favorite online quilt fabric shop - Sweet Treasures Quilts!  They are the first shop I've ever ordered from that tore the backing fabric!  This is so exciting because it means that the entire amount I order is usable!  I always order 1/2 yard extra of extra-wide backing in order to have enough left after I tear the raw edges to straighten them up so they go on the quilting rails straight, and I don't have to order extra from Sweet Treasures!  I've torn off as much as 3/8 yard before - such a waste!  You can find their backing section here.  If you've struggled getting extra-wide backing straight on the rails, tearing the edges might be the solution.  

If I order from a shop and they tear the edges of regular quilting cottons, which does happen occasionally, I won't be ordering from them again.  Extra-wide backing is a whole 'nother deal.

The backing and binding on Brick Cottage Lane {the first one} is extra wide red check from the Vintage Picnic collection, and I ♥ how soft it is, so I decided to use it for the backing and binding on Brick Cottage Lane {2} in the dark blue colorway.  Most of the fabric in Brick Cottage Lane {2} is Vintage Picnic by Bonnie and Camille, so this is the perfect backing and binding.

So here's an unpaid, unendorsed, non-sponsored shout out to Sweet Treasures!

I discovered this quilt shop about 2 and a half months ago when I was looking for some OOP Feed Company by Sweetwater fabric. After receiving the fabric I realized they were in Keizer, OR and only 15 minutes away from where the house is in Salem! I ordered from them again two weeks ago and was able to pick up my fabric on one of their class days when the studio was open. I loved how friendly everyone was and how much fabric she has in stock there! I could have stayed for hours!

I have ordered from a [different] shop before that tore the edges on half yards and was not pleased about that at all. It hadn't occurred to me that tearing on the backings would be a positive. I will definitely be ordering wide backing from Sweet Treasures in the future! Thanks for your review!!
