A Very Vintage Christmas Sew Along: Week 1 - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

A Very Vintage Christmas Sew Along: Week 1

Grab your hot cocoa, your Christmas cookies, and most importantly, your Vintage Christmas Book because we are on Week 1 of the A Very Vintage Christmas Sew Along! We are sew excited to launch this sew along for Lori Holt of a Bee in my Bonnet’s newest book, Vintage Christmas! Step into Lori’s scrappy happy vintage world this Christmas season with all-new quilt blocks and over ten quilty projects.

To help you make the quilt, we have a Vintage Christmas Quilt Kit and Backing Set that uses Lori Holt’s Cozy Christmas collection for Riley Blake Fabrics. Lori also has a Bee Basics AuriFloss Thread Box and Cute Little Buttons Bag to add the finishing touches to your completed Vintage Christmas quilt! (*You will need to order the book separately from the Quilt Kit to complete the quilt.)

In this Sew Along, we will make all 42 blocks in Lori’s Vintage Christmas Book! We will feature 5 blocks each week on Instagram and Facebook (@fatquartershop on Instagram, Fat Quarter Shop on Facebook) for these 9 weeks.
