    • Thanks, Lori. I’m quilting the holly leaves onto a border today. I’m finally finishing a Christmas quilt that I pieced several years ago!

  1. I’m enjoying my morning ritual of practicing my FMQ and playing with your patterns… thanks so much for all the great ideas..

  2. Sadly, I do because I always want to try new thing that comes out. And I try to support my guild by participating in its projects. I just have all of my UFO’s organized and stored out of sight!

  3. Your ideas inspire me. Then reality sets in. I need to clear out the Christmas wrapped gifts so I can find my sewing machine. They go to the post office today. Tomorrow I play.

  4. Gorgeous post Lori…I oooed and ahhhhed the whole time. I used several of these or a variation in the past and they are still my fave! I have two Christmas quilts that need quilted and will be incorporating these designs….they make me so happy! :).

  5. Good morning, Lori…. THANK YOU for constantly inspiring me… even if I don’t get to all the things I plan for … first thing every morning! I have ALL these grandiose ideas in my head to get done…. and then…! So…. I am glad to hear that we are all human and things can get a bit hectic…! That is a great burden … lifted …and all those designs are very AMAZING! You are a true gem!

  6. You are so creative! I’m amazed at all of your motifs. Thanks for sharing. You’re very generous with your talents.

  7. Thanks for gathering them all together! I just went through all your tutes last week to find them. Hope they’ll go into “THE book” – or maybe in the second one?? Can’t wait!

  8. Thank you Lori. I have ordered your new book and can’t wait for it to come in. Now I need to manage a way to get my own long arm machine. I learn so much each time I read your blog.

  9. What great designs for quilting! Are these designs and the others that you post all in your new book or are the ones in the book totally different? Either way I think I need to buy the book so I will have them handy in my studio when needed. Thanks for all the inspiration you send out to us.

  10. These are so beautiful & festive! Even if I never try them, it makes my heart sing to know that they’re here to admire <3
