Book Review: Lori Holt’s Scrappy Project Planner




I must admit… ever since I had to miss Quilt Market last weekend, I’ve felt lacking for inspiration in the quiltmaking department. I needed something to give me that boost of creative energy and get me going again. And then look what I got in the mail from Fat Quarter Shop: the Scrappy Project Planner by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet!


When I first saw it online, I was thinking that my current weekly planner is almost at the end and I need something to start writing down next year’s appointments and deadlines.

I’m already a huge fan of Lori’s quilt patterns and fabric. I met her at Spring Quilt Market in May and she is such a dear (oh, why did you make me think of market again?).

Graph paper in the project planning section - yay!

I knew that there would be pages for planning sewing and quilting projects (hence the name – Scrappy Project Planner). But – surprise! – there is so much more than that.

There are 6 adorable quilt patterns, yay! Plus pages and pages of quiltmaking tips and handy charts like ‘how many squares can I get from a fat quarter?’ I can totally appreciate having that information in my planner instead of having to go search for it.

I really like that it is spiral bound so it lays flat or I can fold it back to keep the current week or project in sight.

And you see it made me pull out my Cotton + Steel scrap bin to start a new mini quilt. It’s working already, lol. You can find the Scrappy Project Planner here at Fat Quarter Shop.

So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.
