Custom fabrics bundles at Westwood Acres

Are you familiar with Westwood Acres? This is a unique online fabric shop that specializes in selling pre-selected fabric bundles unique to Westwood Acres. Sometimes fabric companies sell pre-made fat quarter bundles, but not all companies. Amanda, owner of Westwood Acres, specializes in creating fat eighth, fat quarter, and half yard bundles from collections where those types of bundles are not commercially available as well as custom bundles of  groups such as low-volume fabicssolids, or dots.
Some recent additions to the shop include, Wallflowers by Allison Harris for Windham fabrics.
 Honeycrisp for Dear Stella fabrics.
and Scrumptious by Bonnie and Camille for Moda. Other bundles available from the Scrumptious collection only at Westwood Acres include just the dots, solids, or bias stripes. (I love a good bias-print stripe - perfect for bindings!)
Westwood Acres has a newsletter available to keep you up to date on specials and all the latest arrivals. Also included every month is a free quilt pattern. The quilt above is the cute pattern available with October's newsletter. You can sign-up for the free newsletter here.
Amanda also writes a beautiful blog at A Crafty Fox where she shares her latest creations and quilt-alongs for beautiful projects such as this Starflower quilt. She teaches how to piece this quilt with your machine! This is a project high on my list. I saw an antique quilt out of this pattern this summer and am itching to make one! I am so excited to try Amanda's method!

Westwood Acres is a supportive sponsor of this blog. I am so grateful for this and the other sponsors of Diary of a Quilter who make it possible for me to justify the time invested here. And thank you to all of YOU for your support of these sponsors! I am very choosy about who I work with as sponsors of this blog and only choose sponsors who I feel are the right fit and are in the interests of you who visit here, as well as provide good service to all of us in our fabric shopping addictions needs.

  3. I have shopped there before and I am amazed at how quickly the parcel arrives - travelling all the way down under.

  4. What a smart way to do business! Shopping for FQ bundles is so much easier than trying to mix and match on my own. :)

  5. Thanks for highlighting Westwood Acres. I wasn't familiar with her Etsy shop and really like her selections - $153.00 worth to be exact - ha!

    Thanks again - so grateful for your blog!

  6. I can tell you from my own personal experience that Amanda's Starflower quilt goes together like a dream and I've never had such perfect points! You will love it! My starflower just needs the last border and then - voila! Thanks for highlighting her great little shop!

Thank you so much for your comments - they make my day! I try to respond to as many as my 'mommy' time allows, but life sometimes gets in the way. Please know how much I appreciate each of them.

I apologize for the current comment settings that require a registered user account. They are the only way that I don't get tons of gross spam. I'm hoping Blogger will make a way where people who are not registered users, but would like to leave a comment can do so. Please, Blogger! In the mean time, thanks for your patience.

I also love to respond to questions. If you are a no-reply blogger, please leave an email address so I can get back to you. Or you can email me directly: amy @ diaryofaquilter.com. Thanks!
