We’re Happy to Announce this Scrappy Sew Along!

Join us for the Scrappiness is Happiness Quilt Along, inspired by Lori Holt’s new book, Scrappiness is Happiness! This quilt along is a little “extra,” as in using your extra fabric to make a scrappy sampler quilt! 

Scrappiness is Happiness QAL Supplies

To join the 32-week Scrappiness is Happiness Quilt Along, gather your supplies, organize your scraps, and get ready to start on October 31. Each week we’ll be sewing a block from the book.

Also, be sure to tune in on Friday, August 12, to the Fat Quarter Shop YouTube Channel for a special Livestream and trunk show with guest Lori Holt. You can see all the beautiful quilts from the book and enjoy a special Q&A with the Queen Bee!

First, you will need a copy of Scrappiness is Happiness by Lori Holt of Bee in My Bonnet Co. for the instructions to make each block.

Then be sure to gather the rest of your Scrappiness is Happiness Quilt Along Supplies:

Kimberly will be sewing with Prairie by Lori Holt for Riley Blake Designs, including the Prairie Fat Quarter Bundle, Teal Fiddle for background and borders, Coral Homespun for binding, and Coral Dress Heirloom for backing.

  1. On the PDF, it states “*Optional bonus Pieced Backing…on page 7” I don’t see that on pg 7 of my book. Is there another PDF coming? I already have my book :)!!

    1. Hi Lisa, the rest of this PDF will be added closer to the start of the quilt along!

      Thank you for asking. Hope this helps. 🙂

  2. Hooray! I have my book and I’ve been collecting Lori Holt fabrics! I love Farm Girl pattern but I’ve also a few from her other collections. I love the idea of a scrappy quilt made from the new book.

  3. Oh gosh how I wish I could participate but I’m not home until September! But I did make 2 scrappy quilts this summer so I could use those! I’m going to try to pin this post as there are so many good ideas!

  4. I am going to make mine like Kimberly’s. What is she using for the background? I know she is using Teal Fiddle for the sashing and border.

    1. Hi Kathryn!

      She is using Teal Fiddle for background and borders, Coral Homespun for binding, and Coral Dress Heirloom for backing.
