Ever since Lori Holt’s new book, Quilter’s Cottage, came out, we’ve been swooning over the cover quilt. It’s a sweet reminder that home is where the heart is, so make it beautiful!
We’re celebrating the sewing spaces where imagination, fabric and dedication reside. Whether it’s a sewing nook, a dedicated space, or a corner of the dining room, this is where the sewing magic happens and what the Quilter’s Cottage is all about!
If you’re ready to sew up a quilter’s cottage all your own, come join us for a Quilter’s Cottage Sew Along starting on August 7, 2020! Over the course of 9 weeks, we’ll make our way, block-by-block, through this enchanting quilt.
About the Quilt
This quilt is sewn with traditional piecing techniques and it finishes at 74.5″ x 89″. There is no paper piecing or applique needed. The fun thing is, you can choose your colors to make the Quilter’s Cottage of your dreams. The color of the cottage, the flowers and background can all be up to you. Please visit the announcement post for a list of all the supplies.
All the projects in Quilter’s Cottage feature Lori Holt’s Vintage Happy 2 fabric collection.

Did the Row Along ever start? Using the Jolly Bars?
Yes, and you can find the details for it on this page https://blog.fatquartershop.com/jolly-bar-book-row-along/
Is this a free pattern?
Hi Barbara, we’re sewing along with the book, so you’ll need a copy of Quilter’s Cottage to join us.
I tried ordering but didn’t see where to pay or give add.
How do we join the Quilter’s Cottage sew a long?
