Quilty Fun is Here!!!...




Last week 
arrived hot off the press...
and has been shipping to quilty people everywhere:)

YaY!!!



I'm so excited!!!
If you have received your copy... 
 I'd love to hear what you think about it!




I have had so much fun designing everything in the book...


and I'm so pleased with how it turned out.


And I love the spiral binding!!!


All of the row along quilt instructions are included in the book...
and I used the row along blocks 
to create even more projects for you.




I'm so proud of each and every one of them
 and I hope that you like them too.





Of course you know that I could not 
have done this without my awesome publishers!
Kimberly and the girls from 
have been such a joy to work with.




A BIG thank you goes out to them
 from the bottom of my heart:)




And just so you know...
now that the book is here...
the Quilty Fun has just begun!!!

We will be having a Sew Along to celebrate:)
*if you follow me on
you have been seeing 
sneak peeks of the sew along



YaY!

I have designed one last project 
from the blocks in Quilty Fun
for the sew along:)




It's a Quilty Fun Sampler!!!
I can't show you exactly what it looks like yet...




but all will be revealed on November 1st!!!
(just a few sleeps away)

Click over to Kimberly's blog to find out more and 
 what you can do to prepare for the
Quilty Fun Sew Along



I have used my scrappy stash to make the sampler blocks...



Just like I did with all of the projects in the book.

to see how I turn my 
scrappy stash into usable sizes.



I hope you are excited about the Sew Along...
and my new book
Quilty Fun
Lessons in Scrappy Patchwork:)

Have a quilty kind of day...
and sew it like you mean it!!!
xx

Yes, my copy arrived last week! I had forgotten, I ordered it. Thanks for putting a spiral binding on it. It was like taking a personal tour of your quilts cottage. Sorry, I don't do instances for the sneak peeks. I will wait for November. Are you going to market!??

I just received my "Quilty" book and I'm in love with all of the projects :). It's so nice to have a hands on permanent hard copy of the first project that got me into quilting. I hope to see you at the Houston Quilt Show to get this special book autographed by you and to be able to meet the person behind it. I'm really looking forward to Nov1st to see what's new. Thanks for the great book! Sherry

I got mine in the mail this weekend and I L♥ve it! I have already learned a few things I have been doing wrong (ahem using steam when I iron, no wonder I've had problems!) I'm still a beginner in quilting but I know I will find so much help in the book and I want to make every single quilt! Thank you for a beautiful, beautiful book!

jabeybaby said...

I received my copy of your book and am in love! I want to make everything in it! Can't wait to see the new sampler!

Karen said...

I received my book on Friday! Went shopping today to get started on my own row along, can't wait to get sewing. I love the lay out, I especially like the spiral binding, makes it so much easier to use.
Great job on the book!!!!!

Kimberly said...

Lori, I got my book today and was so thrilled to finally sit down with it (and a mocha, of course) and just enjoy it! My fave project is the house quilt. And the sewing machine cover. And maybe the snowball fight runner. And...and...and everything! Thanks so much for your creativity!

Sandy McClay said...

I had one on reserve for months! It is on it's way t me right now....as you know I am not a quilter, but the colors and the photos are also so worth this book! I wish I could have got it autographed...:) Congrats!!!!!

Hugs, Sandy

Jan said...

I hope my book arrives soon! I can hardly wait to see it! It looks wonderful!

Mary said...

OH yeah Thanks for the signed Bookmark that came with my copy!

Anonymous said...

Yes, I ordered one, got it, and have loved every single page. And I do love the spiral binding.....It lays flat, and I love the pictures. All of them. Thanks for sharing this. But I too would love that barn quilt and all the blocks for that. Is there a pattern available? I would love to purchase it. Can't seem to find it.....But love that book!!!!! Thanks again, gloria g. Hemingway, SC

greg @ grey dogwood studio said...

My book arrived on Friday and I love it! It's nice to have the row along patterns all in one place. But my favorite part is the new patterns. And then there's that signed bookmark. Now where do I start?!

Tammy Edwards said...

I'm about to burst at my seams :) I haven't received my copy yet but I know it will be here any time now(I live in Northern Canada). I am sewww excited just reading everyones comments.

Beverly said...

Shucks! I thought the book was going to be autographed. Instead, a bookmark. I'll work hard to keep it in the book! LOVE the book and can't wait for the sew-along!

Pieceful said...

The book has arrived in northern Maine!!Expect more orders from this area. I took my copy to guild and EVERYONE wants their own copy! Thanks for the spiral binding! Off to sew like I omean it!

Mary Burnette said...

I had preordered the book and recieved it middle of last week. I love it and will be making my own little row along quilt. I would have loved to have a special section of just pics of your studio although I have seen them on the blog. They are always fun to go back to. Maybe you will give those to us in your next book.

On Friday, I went shop hopping with friends and when I came home your lovely book had arrived! It was like the icing on top of a perfect quilty day!

Josie McRazie said...

Mine arrived Friday as well! I cannot tell you how many times I have poured over the pages! I might just wear them out before I ever make anything from it! BEAUTIFUL! that's all I can say!

Angei said...

I got my book last Thursday and have been "drooling" over it ever
since. Picking out fabrics to use and trying to decide which pattern to do first.

THANK YOU LORI

Lori:
Is the pattern "Grandmas Kitchen" still in your Etsy?
I've always loved it, first thing I saw created by you in the quilt store in Draper, Ut.

I love the way it is spiral bound and covered as well, its great to me, I was so excited when the purchase came from FQ in Manchaca,TX, I even slept with it in my bed, wish only that it had been signed-lol

Aileen Gimlin said...

Can't wait to order your book. The colors you use are so uplifting! What a talented person you are! I so enjoy reading and seeing your blog. aileen

Lynn McIndoe said...

My book arrived today- a country area in New Zealand, where mail can often be a day later than town. Great going for the postal services, and to the FQS for getting such a large mail out, dispatched quickly.

Lori, I am so happy that your generous Row-Along has resulted in a book. It feels like a great reward for you.
Any chance of seeing some of your church group quilts? I have been curious about how they went.

Sandi said...

Congratulations on your new book, I love that you did a spiral rather than bound book presentation. It looks lovely. May you have great success with it. I love your designs and colours.

Kathleen OGrady said...

My awesome "Quilty Fun" book arrived last week and I must say it-is- better-than-I-dreamed! I have read it from cover to wonderful spiral bound cover and grinned, ooh-ed and aww-ed the whole time. I have not started a project yet but will very soon. Now, if I just had your yummy scrappy stash, wow!

Patty said...

Hi Lori,
I received my book on Friday and it is scrumptious!! First of all, what a great idea to put spiral binding on it. I wish all quilt books would come that way. The photography is beautiful but your quilts are awesome! I had been drooling over the Row- a -long since you were working on it so I am so happy it is featured front and center in the book. It really is a lovely, fun, friendly, home-y book!! What will you do for an encore?? I can't wait!!!

Nicole Kelly said...

I got the book yesterday and I was tickled pink! It is beautiful, your instructions look so easy to follow, better than any other quilt author out there! I have been a huge fan of yours for years, and I am so excited the rest of the world is finding out about you and your many talents! You are now going to be expected to do more books and I hope you continue to!

I have no idea how you keep everything so neat, organized and so beautiful in your home! Your stunt double is so beautiful and growing up so fast!

I would still like to request a video of how you do your needle turn applique. Your applique patterns are the best no one has your style or creativity the ideas were so full of that vintagey, cottagey goodness!

Maybe someday you could do a book on an applique quilt! Either way I still adore everything you do! Congratulations on the better than great book love, love, love!

Nicole from Iowa!

Carol D. said...

Laura Bailey said...

I got my book last week and I love it!!!

Karen said...

Soooo happy for you. The book looks wonderful. I remember seeing all the pictures during the QAL. Great idea, I love row quilts.

Sarah said...

I got my book on Monday and my son and I have been ogling it ever since. I let a quilter friend look at it yesterday, and her comment was, 'Wow, this has a lot of great ideas in it!" Trust me, coming from her, that was high praise!

Sandy said...

My copy was shipped right away and I have been reading it ever since...a little each day. I love the spiral binding...I have taken quite a few of my other pattern books and have gotten spiral binding at places like Office Max over the past year. Your instructions are meticulous as usual. Can't wait for this new sew along.

Nancy B said...

I received my copy of Quilty Fun the other day. It's beautiful! Congratulations!!

Sigrid said...

I just received my beautiful Quilty Fun Book(s) today. What a Treasure!! I'm just thrilled with it.
I still remember how I frantically wrote out all the instructions on sticky notes from your blog and then rewrote all my notes into a little notebook. It has taken me 5 months to sew 7 of these beautiful Row Along Quilt 'Tops'- so far.I don't regret getting a head start as now I can keep going with the next beautiful quilt designs in the book - using everything that I've learned so far.
I'm just overwhelmed and love it all.
Thanks so very, very much Lori!

Jan said...

I received my copy of Quilty Fun today and I love it! I want to do everything in the book! Kudos to you for turning out such a fine quilt book!

Betsy Lehman said...

I received my book last Friday, but saved it to enjoy Saturday morning with my coffee. I can't wait to make something! It is also fun just to look at!

Tammy Edwards said...

Yay!!! My book has arrived :) LOVE IT!!! The spiral binding is perfect...Thank you. Went shopping today at our little local quilt store to add some more white and other solids to my stash for back ground fabrics so I will be ready to join in on the next Quilty sew along:)

Kristyne said...

I got my copy in the mail! It is a fantastic book full of Lori eye candy ... love the photos, the colours, the projects - everything I've come to know and love about you. :) Congratulations!!! xo k
