Learning from the Master

Friday, September 3, 2010

Do you know Lori Holt, creator of Bee In My Bonnet quilt patterns?  If you love vintage, applique & embroidery then of course you do!?!  She's an amazing local quilt designer that designs those crazy appliqued quilts that you've probably seen around ~ like the Apron Club quilt, the Comforts of Home quilt and her Paper Doll quilt (just a few of my favorites).  Seriously, click on the links.  They're CRAZY good! 

Well, I'm really excited because I'm taking a class from her in a couple of weeks! 

We'll be making this little baby:

Really, how cute is that!?! 

I'm excited to meet Lori (one of my new bloggy friends) and glean from her expertise.  I hear her method of applique is "easy peasy!"  A chance in a lifetime...I couldn't pass it up!


  1. Ambs, I wish I could do it. Really. It is SO CUTE and looks like a ton of fun! I'm just crazy busy right now. I just entered my calendar into my phone for the next few months and it's a little bit insane. I think I might have to post about it. Anyway, I'm sure it's going to turn out great, and maybe I can glean from YOUR applique expertise at a later date!

  2. I am so jealous.....how exciting.

  3. You lucky girl, I can't wait to hear all about it!

  4. How cool is that?! Rub elbows for me!! :)

  5. That is so cool Amber. Enjoy your class.

  6. Oh Amanda ... I am super jealous!! :o) What a fun time you will have and how neat to be able to meet Lori! :o) Wow, what a treat that will be. :o)
    Her quilts are so beautiful and I would love to learn how to applique {not something I have ventured in to - but I adore what it looks like}. I am fairly new to reading her blog and wait for the latest update. :o)
    I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. :o)
    Sincerely ~ Tricia
