  1. Lori always has a detailed cutting order for the fabrics. Will this quilt along have this same listing?

  2. I first bought Lori Holt’s Quilty Fun in 2014. It was a colourway and style that was very much out of my comfort zone, so I’ve put it off for years.
    Now I have seen this row-a-along and I am inspired to give it a go.
    I am sewing from my stash.
    Wish me luck 🙃

  3. Will there be a binder cover? I have the book with the pattern but have the schedule and other pages that need a home 😊

    1. Hi Mary! We don’t have an official one, but since you asked we tested and if you open the image of the quilt in a new tab and print it then it should work perfectly! 🙂

      1. Thanks. I had printed something else (don’t remember what 🤷‍♀️) but it’s too small for the cover. I’ll try this.
