Lori Holt on YouTube!

As you know, a few weeks ago we took a trip to Utah to film a few videos with our friend Lori Holt. She welcomed us into her charming cottage and had a whole bunch of fun. The videos are now all up on our YouTube channel and we wanted to tell you a bit about them! Also, we have a fun giveaway at the end of this post so don't miss out!


We are absolutely in love with Lori's ruler sets, so we filmed tutorials on how to use the Circle Ruler Set, Thimble Ruler Set and Hexie Half Ruler Set. Each ruler set comes with a free pattern, and in the video Lori walks you through how to construct a block from the free quilt patterns. These rulers are quite amazing and the possibilities are endless! Just watch and see!










Lori's home is filled with vintage treasures and her studio is no exception. Jina of Riley Blake Designs took a tour through her studio and Kimberly went through Lori's favorite sewing and quilting notions. Some of them may surprise you, but you will have so many creative ideas after watching these videos!






We are always looking for ways to organize our sewing space, and Lori's design boards are just the thing to keep our blocks in order. We love the idea so much that we filmed a video on how she makes her design boards!



We also filmed her sewing block 5 in her Quilty Barn Along. Learn the story behind the Quilty Barn Along and follow along as she makes block 5!






And last but not least, we caught a few spare minutes to sit down and have a chat. Learn all about Lori's background in quilting, her upcoming collections, including the adorable Bake Sale available at Fat Quarter Shop, and more in this one-on-one interview!



We hope you enjoyed the videos! Now it is time for a giveaway! We are offering up a bundle of Lori Holt's Designer Solids, which coordinate perfectly with any of her collections. To enter, leave a comment below letting us know what new tip, trick or project you will try from watching her videos! Contest closes Friday May 10!

UPDATE Giveaway is now closed. ✾Jamie Lee Cooley✾ has been selected as the winner! Please contact chelsey[at]fatquartershop[dot]com to claim your prize.

I really enjoyed the circle template video. I've always stayed away from round sewing because it looked intimidating. This makes it look so easy!

The design boards are so clever that I'm doing it as a surprise project with my quilting friends when we meet tomorrow. They're so easy to make and useful. Thanks for the great idea.

Lois R said...

I have loved making my row along quilt and am diligently keeping up with the barn blocks as well. Lori is such a blessing to share her awesome talent with us on line~~
Thank you so much~

Janice said...

I have her rulers, and have used the circle rulers extensively on the tilt a whirl pattern. I really love the angler tip though. It is a true time/life saver.

Marca said...

I liked the circle rulers best. They are completely different than anything else I've tried. I'm already using a design board and enjoy it very much.

I loved the angler, I need that badly. I also loved the design board she made. That would resolve the problem I have of it taking so long to cut, sew and then cut, sew again. Her way of explaining techniques is so great. I can follow and understand everything she says. Really enjoyed her videos, and will watch again as I have already shared with my friends. Thanks for the chance

I'm going to make myself a ton of quilt block design boards.

JanAngel55 said...

I loved the video on the quilty barn. i'm going to have to get over to bee in my bonnet to start those blocks. janicelashley@gmail.com

DKay said...

Just LOVE all the videos! I LOVE how Lori uses vintage pieces to decorate with and store all her sewing supplies in!

Maria Gee said...

Oh wow! Lori had SO MANY great tips, it's hard to know where to start. But I think my favorite tip was regarding pressing seams open when you have angles. I just made a thimble quilt, and wish I had known to do that then, but will definately do that next time!

Janice said...

The hexi rulers are my new favorite.

Stephanie Webb said...

I love her design board idea and I'm already using them. They are so fantastic!

bdaiss said...

I've always been fascinated by (and a bit scared of) circle quilts. I'd LOVE to try her circle ruler! (But the angler idea for HSTs is pretty dang awesome too!)

Alicia said...

i'm going to try the half-size tumblers!

Lynda said...

I liked that circular mat! Would love to find one!!

Anonymous said...

I LOVE Lori's ruler sets! Can't wait to try all three of them!
