  1. Lori, I received your book today, and it is no effort to give it and you rave reviews! Thank you so much for sharing your great talent with us!

  2. I have been a faithful follower of your blog for over two years. I got THE book and LOVE it! I may never like the quilting part of making a quilt as much as you do, but I will be better at it because of you, Lori. Thanks!

  3. Lori,
    Your “masterpiece” is amazing; it is as though you are sitting by my side smiling that confident smile that says “YOU GO GIRL YOU CAN DO IT, just doodle, doodle, doodle. Having the spiral bound, flat lying book is “the best!”

    Although radiation slows me down a bit I keep going & reading your blog is a great inspiration. Thank You Lori ever so much.

  4. My book just arrived today, my husband purchased it for me from Amazon. I am so excited, I love everything you share with us. Now I can practice, practice and practice!
    Hugs, Debbie

  5. With out even seeing the book ,l am positive that it is wonderful. Have followed your blog for a year and half and learned so much. Have been able to finish 5 quilts because of your step by step instructions. Presently working on number 6 planes, trains and automobiles. Your easy to follow tutorials and your passion for quilting keeps me coming back for more. You are a very talented person.
    Unfortunately l am unable to purchase your book at this time.
    Thank you so very much for sharing your gifts.

  6. Hi Lori! I received your beautiful book in the post today (all the way in England) and I just can’t wait to get to my machine and start stitching. I loved reading about you and the Bernina Ambassadors… I have always used a Bernina machine and I love it…. well them actually!! I see you are all holding Swiss flags in the photo…. have you ever been to Switzerland to the Bernina factory in Steckborn? It truly is the most beautiful place… you should visit!

  11. I picked up my autographed copy of your book from the Post Office (in Australia) today. Wow! I am in awe of the work you have put into it. The pages of basic information before the designs even begin are wonderful. Super congratulations.

    • Thank you! So fun that it is in Australia! I hope it finds a home right next to your sewing machine!!

  12. Lori, I don’t remember how I found your blog, but have been following for a few years now. I love that you freely share your knowledge of free motion and motifs you’ve created. I purchased both of your classes from Craftsy and now purchased your book! You deserve success, as I’ve learned so much from you at no cost, so I gladly support you in your adventure of being published. Thank you for your love of our craft and sharing your knowledge.

  13. Got my copy! I’d followed your advice of making cards with the quilting designs (which I love) but it’s great to have it in book format.
