One Last Sample…

Machine Quilting, Flowers, Lori KennedyGood Morning, Quilters!

It’s a busy week…

I’m off to Denver tomorrow to  film a second Craftsy video!

This project has been “percolating” in my head since filming my first video in June. (Divide and Conquer:  Creative Quilting)   I submitted a proposal in October and got the “green light” in November.  Since then I’ve been working with the Craftsy editors to tweak the concept of the class, stitch the samples, and write the script.

I’m so excited to be able to share the video version of The Inbox Jaunt–tips, techniques, doodling and so much more!

This sample of Faye’s Flowers was the last sample I stitched…a demo of “what to do” and “what not to do” when stitching….Can you see it in the sample?

Machine Quilting, Flowers, Lori KennedyWhile I’m away, I’ve scheduled plenty of work for YOU!

  1. I’m not seeing the mistake, looks pretty darn good to me. Wish mine looked that good! Course I don’t have my glasses on either! Have fun in Denver and fly safe.

  2. So exciting that you are filming again with Craftsy
    . You do such beautiful work. Again, I am proud to call you friend. Enjoy your time in Denver!

    • Thank you, Patty! Can’t wait to hear more about YOUR exciting adventures and share with the readers of The Inbox Jaunt!

  3. Your mistake is obvious….and shows us clearly what NOT to do! Not the end of the world kinda mistake….but one to learn from and understand the *whys* of not crossing over previous stitching. LOVE…that you’re doing another class, Lori. My best to you during all your CRAFTSY recordings. ***smiles***

  4. Well, I guess I see it, but it’s not a mistake to me. When looking at flowers in nature, one can see many “mistakes”. I’m one who likes a bit of “diversity”. There are too many other really important things to think about, than whether I’ve made a small “mistake”. I love your work, and wish I could be as creative as you. Thank you for all your wonderful help and ideas!!

  5. Just a side note: For the past couple of weeks, the photos are showing up a much smaller size than they were previously were. It’s impossible to see what is actually in the picture. I am an iPad user.

  6. I guess anyone might make that mistake…at the worst, we should stop, break thread, and start again, being mindful not to stitch ourselves into another bind…thanks for reninding us!

  7. I think I am a Craftsy addict! I look forward to your next class as I love your work. I have purchased some solid fabrics in hopes of getting my own samples made to refer to. It always looks impossible, but you help us make it happen.
    Congratulations on your next class.
    Today, it is out to the greenhouse to start my seeds for the gardens. Keeping busy is rewarding.

  8. P.S. I got scared when I saw “One Last Sample”. Had to immediately open my e-mail to your site. So grateful for the time you take to share with others.

  9. You mean that line? I should be so lucky to make those mistakes HA I’m nowhere near ready for your classes but am working on it 🙂
    Have a great trip!

We'd LOVE to hear! Please reply...
