Meander No More–The BERNINA Blog Tour


Good Morning, Quilters!

If YOU are joining us from The BERNINA Ambassador Blog Tour–Meander No More!  YOU are in the right place!  WELCOME!!

Welcome to The Inbox Jaunt!  My name is Lori Kennedy and I will be your tour guide for this portion of the journey.  My motto is:

 Meander no More!

I LOVE to machine quilt on a domestic sewing machine–I have five BERNINAs, but my current favorite is my BERNINA 770QE.

The only thing I like more than quilting…(and walking Hawaiian beaches) is convincing others that:

Machine  Quilting is Fun and Easy!


Over 100 Quilting Motifs with Personality HERE–(we never stipple or meander here)

  1. Thought of something….I have no idea how many times I have written down your name and URL on back of my own business card to give out to folks… especially at QuiltCom 2017 in Savannah a few weeks ago. Do you have a business card template I could print out and give to folks? My printer does B & W and color. Thanks for considering this request.

  2. I have been a follower for ages. Just got my book and was so surprised that it wasn’t just signed – there was actually a note written to me personally! I can’t imagine how much time you took to individually write to everyone! But – I shouldn’t have expected any less- you are a first class act! Congratulations on your success!

  3. Yippee!!!! Your new book has arrived at my house!! It’s wonderful!! I’m taking my time reading and admiring the tutorials. Can’t wait to get started . Thank you, Lori,. for your blog, classes and now your book. I love them all.

  4. Congratulations Lori. I received your terrific book,which is parked right beside my new sit down machine waiting for some action. I do not have an excuse to be afraid to mess up now.
    Thank you for such precise instructions that you have given us over the years–there is no excuse now.

  5. I have to laugh as my name is Janet and I am reading what a previous Janet said and I also want to congratulate you on a wonderful book. I have followed your blog and you have given me so much inspiration and courage to try free motion quilting. I now have the tools, a good machine, Craftsy classes and your book…ready set go! Thank you. I will not be meandering.

      • It doesn’t mean to be lost. It means to follow a winding course. I’m feeling ashamed to admit that I do meandering, so I don’t belong here. Little motifs work well for small quilts, but for large bed quilts, it’s hard to fill in big areas with small designs. I’m not going to give up meandering as long as I have to quilt my quilts myself on my little Bernina.

  6. Thank you Leslie, I am artistically challenged and worked many hours learning to do meandering t h at I felt was acceptable :0) I am looking forward to trying something new!

  7. Can’t wait to try the elm leaf with oak leaf inside! That will go with the maple leaf my husband does, inside a Texas star! Ah, memories!
