THE Book-Exciting News!

Machine Quilting 1-2-3, Lori Kennedy

Good Morning, Quilters!

A few days ago, as I was walking back from my mailbox and absentmindedly thumbing the pages of a quilt catalog…

This is what I found…

As all of YOU know…I spent much of 2016 stitching tutorials and working with the fabulous editors at Martingale writing, re-writing, proofing and editing my first book…

But I had not seen the official photos!  THE PHOTOS ARE FABULOUS!

Needless to say I was thrilled!!!!

Our book has a title:   Free-Motion Machine Quilting 1-2-3 and we have an ISBN number!

It will be available March, 2017 and is being advertised in Martingale’s Wholesale catalog right now.  (Stores should order NOW–it is sure to sell out quickly, right folks?)

I can’t tell you how excited I am!

And it would never have happened without YOU, Gentle Reader!!!!

In a week where we recount all we are thankful for…

This is one of many!

What about YOU?  What are YOU thankful for?

We’d LOVE to hear!

You could knock me down with a (FMQ) feather!


Thankfully yours,

  1. Lori, Congrats on your book. I will definitely be purchasing it. I am thankful that I have so many people that love me and for my health and also that I might joy to another person today. We often take for granted the little things in life. I hope you and your family have a Happy Thanksgiving…

  2. Your book is already on my wishlist with Martingale! I know I can hardly wait.
    I have a lot to be thankful for this year….. Last year I was finally moved from ICU (in Nov 10) with fractured right wrist and dangerous internal injuries (at home) and a cast finally put on arm; then off to nursing home where I learned to walk again (after a coma I didn’t know about) etc. This year a nice meal with my mother, no other family, and good conversation. Thanks to your Craftsy class and online tutorials I’m able to learn more very useful techniques and ideas.
    Thank you.

    • Anne, you are my hero…thank you for sharing. After heart surgery last year, I thought I wouldn’t survive the nursing home, but my friends came and prayed for me. Husband brought me some blocks to finish their hand applique. You are a miracle ! Blessings for coming holidays!

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