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!
