Sew and Tell…Lori K.


Lori K. visited the shop a few weeks ago with her recently finished “Tree Farm Quilt”. She used the pattern Vintage Holiday II┬áby Thimble Blossoms with a couple of minor tweaks like the switching out the heart block from the pattern and replacing it with a tree block instead. She also added a border to enlarge the finished quilt from 78″ x 78″ to 82 inches square.LoriKQuilt4 LoriKQuilt5 LoriKQuilt6LoriKQuilt7

She used a variety of fabrics collections from the designer trio Sweetwater such as Hometown Christmas, First Crush, Feed Company, The Cookie Exchange and Holly’s Tree Farm. She used a velvety minky on the back for extra snuggles and had it quilted with a tree design by Beatrice at Pumpkin Patch.LoriKQuilt2 LoriKQuilt3

She completed the quilt in less than two months for one of her son’s and plans to make a complimentary quilt for the other so she may give them as gifts this Christmas.

Thanks so much for sharing Lori!! We can’t wait to see your next project!

  1. Your quilt is beautiful, Lori! And you made it really quickly. I’m sure your son will appreciate his gift. Thank you for sharing it. Brenda

  2. wow I just really love those colours……it so nice to a bed size quilt. The blocks looks like they really belong on a tree!
