Join us for the Vintage Bowtie Sew Along!

I couldn’t be more excited to start the sew along for Joanna Figueroa’s Strawberry Garden book! Now that the book has arrived at Fat Quarter Shop, it’s time to dive into the quilty goodness inside. If you’re joining me in sewing along with Joanna for the Vintage Bowtie Quilt from the Strawberry Garden book, it’s time to begin.

The six-week sew along starts today! Joanna has invited some special friends to join us each week, and they’ll have some fun giveaways, too! Follow Joanna on her InstagramFacebook Group, and be sure to check out her blog posts each week for all the details and inspiration throughout the sew along!

In case you missed it, I wanted to remind everyone that there are two sizes to choose between for the Vintage Bowtie Fancy Quilt! I’m embracing a vibrant multicolor palette and sewing with Joanna’s Jelly & Jam collection for Moda Fabrics.

If you’re just joining in, you can get caught up by reading Joanna’s original blog post for the sew along, and see Joanna’s tips for Week 1, fabric selection on her blog!

Be sure to grab a copy of the book for the pattern, and explore the optional supplies listed below for added creativity.
