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!
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:
- Scrappiness is Happiness Fabric Requirements Downloadable PDF
- Lori Holt’s Scrappy Happy Starter Fat Quarter Bundle
- Lori Holt’s Scrappy Backgrounds Fat Quarter Bundle
- Lori Holt 20″ x 108″ Sew-in Interfacing by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet
- This is optional and only needed for one of the blocks.
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.

How big is the finished quilt?
The finished size measures 83.5″ square.
Hi the quilt finishes at 83.5 x 83.5. I found it under the supplies tab!
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 :)!!
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. 🙂
You are an inspiration to all of us thank you so much. I look forward to your sewalongs.
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.
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!
Oops! Not home until October!
I have been collecting my scraps into blocks the Kimberly Jolly way, 1.5, 2.5, 3.5 Etc. I got my book and excited to follow along. . .
I need another project (oh Yeah) but I love Lori and have the book so Oct 31 on my calendar
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.
She is using Teal Fiddle for background and borders, Coral Homespun for binding, and Coral Dress Heirloom for backing.
I have my book an I am ordering Lori’s Scrappy Happy Starter and Backgrounds FQs. I can’t wait!!!
