Quilty Fun Blog Tour & Sew Along

Are you ready for some Quilty Fun? We are celebrating Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet's book release with a sew along and blog tour! Lori Holt made and designed the Quilty Fun Sampler Quilt especially for the sew along with blocks from the book and a bonus brand new block for the quilt label. Join us as we team up with some of your favorite bloggers to sew this charming sampler quilt and give away a ton of prizes! You need a copy of Quilty Fun to sew along, so order one today. We hope you join us!

How cute is this sampler quilt? The sew along begins on Monday November 4th, but you will need a few supplies to get started.

  • A copy of Quilty Fun. The instructions for the blocks will come from the book, so have your copy handy.
  • A stash that needs busting. Prepare your stash for a lesson in scrappy patchwork with some helpful tips from Lori.
  • 3 yards of background (Lori used white) to piece all of your cute sampler blocks together.
  • The PDF companion sheet that will be available here weekly, which you can download each week with detailed cutting instructions for each block!

    To join in, make the Quilty Fun Sampler block each week and post a photo to the Quilty Fun Sew Along Flickr Group. From those photos, we will choose a winner to win one of the Lori Holt approved prizes. We are giving away mix of fabric, Lori's favorite notions, and Fat Quarter Shop gift certificates throughout the sew along, so remember to upload your block photos here!

    I can't wait! I've never been a part of a sew along before. I was so inspired by your video about organizing your scraps! I've started the process on my scraps. This will be the perfect time to start using them! Congrats on the book,
