Sandy Klop was not the only incredible quilt maker/fabric designer at the retreat a couple of weeks ago. Lori Holt was there as well. If you don’t know Lori, you soon will.
Here is Lori, busily working away at her happy dresdens.
She was sewing away getting ready for Market in May using the fabric from her first fabric collection, Sew Cherry for Riley Blake. Lori’s style is classic vintage and her fabric is perfect for any vintage inspired projects. So sweet. Keep an eye out for her fabric to hit shops in the coming weeks!
All the most important supplies in place. Lori has a wonderful blog Bee In My Bonnet where she shares lots of vintage happiness. She even sews with a vintage Featherweight machine.
Lori is not new to the quilt design business. She has been designing incredible appliquéd quilts for over a decade. This is one of my favorites – it’s called Grandma’s Kitchen. I love all the retro apliances and other comfortable kitchen nostalgia.
Here are some others at a recent trunk show at American Quilting. From left to right: Paper Dolls, Comforts of Home and Family Reunion. Lori’s blog has a list of sites where you can order her patterns online. (Look down the right hand column of the blog.)
Here’s some of the detail from the Paper Dolls quilt. I can’t even imagine possessing the creativity or the patience to create such amazing works. Fabulous.
Good luck with your final Market prep, Lori! Can’t wait to see what you come up with next!
