This week I’ll highlight a quilter blog that I regularly read. This lady should be on the blogroll of every quilter who does their own quilting. Her designs are so creative, and she does it all on a domestic sewing machine, not a longarm!
Her name is Lori Kennedy and she blogs at In Box Jaunt. I am continually amazed at the prolific new ideas for continuous motion designs she shares for free. Her imagination is simply boundless, and she is one of the most generous bloggers freely sharing her ideas and tutorials. Her Free Motion Tutorials run the gamut of motifs from bugs to flowers, footballs and pencils, critters and kitties, leaves and fruit, holiday and seasonal, you name it! She has over a dozen tutorials on just Doodling to create your own continuous line designs. There are so many tutorials that the pages take almost a minute to load, so be patient and you will be rewarded with more ideas than you can imagine.
Then she will show you posts on using many motifs to create lovely works of art, like this one posted just this past week. It is a teacher gift using several of her motifs with doodle quilting.
When Lori went to Craftsy recently to record her own class, I knew I had to buy it. Her class is called Divide and Conquer: Creative Quilting for Any Space. It is done in her easy follow style, and has class materials to download for practice pieces. She is just so creative! It is fun to watch Lori in action. There is so much there that I am going to take weeks to work through all the lessons and do the practice.
Right now it is still on the introductory sale until the end of May, so get it soon! It is a super value considering all she shares and includes in the class. Once again, I want to thank Lori for her generosity and sharing her expertise to help the rest of us be better quilters. Buying her class was a really easy decision, and by doing so, she knows her work has value to me and many others.
