Welcome to Denim Week at Fat Quarter Shop! - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Welcome to Denim Week at Fat Quarter Shop!

It’s Denim Week here at Fat Quarter Shop, and we’ve got a fabulous lineup of projects, tons of inspiration, and other goodies in store for you!  We’ll be posting fun, denim-based projects Monday through Friday of this week, so be sure to join us each and every day and see what we’ve got up our (denim) sleeve!  We’re also hosting a giveaway!
Why denim and why all week? Well, we’re super excited about the Denim Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics. This is not your granddad’s denim, we promise! The majority of the denims in this fabulous collection of fabrics are soft, drapey, quiltable, and they’re all stylish! Not only can you easily sew these fabrics for projects like bags and clothing, you can also quilt with them!
The Art Gallery Fabrics booth at Spring Quilt Market was decked out in denim, and we loved it.  We know you’ll love the fabrics too, and just wait ’till you see what we’ve made with the AGF denim! These are the projects we have in store for you this week – all beautifully made in denim!
June 8th: Shore Bag
June 9th: Fabric Buckets
June 10th: Bed Runner – from this book!
Yes, it’s true!  We thought we’d sweeten the Denim Week deal by placing many of the items you’ll need to make our Denim Week projects on sale. Hint hint: the AFG denim is 20% off all month, and zippers too!

We’re kicking Denim Week off with a fabulous bag – the Indigo Tote! This lovely bag was made from a FREE pattern – so join us tomorrow and download the FREE tote pattern for your sewing pleasure.
Later this week we’ll be including a giveaway in one of our Denim Week posts.  We’ll be giving away four denim bundles to four lucky winners, so follow along for more fabric fun!
We can’t wait to see what you create as a result of Denim Week, so please be sure to tag any photos you share on Instagram with #FQSDenimWeek!
Happy Denim Week, y’all!


  1. I've got two pieces on the way; I really need to feel them to decide whether I want to stock up on a few. I think denim makes great backing for picnic quilts. I have three picnic quilts planned for this summer (one is almost finished being pieced); if the soft versions are stronger than normal quilting fabric but still quilt able, sign me up! 🙂
