All About the Quilty Fun Event... Trunk Show...Book Signing...Luncheon...Giveaways... and an Invite to Come Sew with Me!!!...





Hello cute people!!!
Today I want to announce that on Saturday November 9th...
 there will be an event to celebrate all things
 Quilty Fun!


Hosting this event is 
in Logan, Utah.
This is a beautiful quilt shop 
owned by my friend Kris and her husband Mike.

If you have been to an event there...
you know that they know how to put on a party!



The day will start out as a trunk show where
 I will show all of the projects in the book one by one...
and you will get a chance to see them 
up close and personal.

There will be giveaways also...
YaY!!!!


I will of course have my Bee in my Bonnet row along quilt there 
and I will be talking about how this quilt came to be 
and all about the row along on the blog and finally the book!


I will be doing a book signing while there...
so bring your book or pick one up there:)




Following the signing will be a lovely luncheon 
and then you are invited to stay and sew with me!


I will walk you through each step of making my spool blocks...



and the quarter square triangle blocks...


For the sewing machine mat/cover 
which is one of the projects in Quilty Fun.


You can use it as a mat...


and also tie it on as a cover:)


It fit's a featherweight and also my Bernina ...
so I'm sure that it fits most machines out there.
It's plenty wide but...
You could add a row on the end if you need it taller.


The spools on the front...


are actually cute little pockets ...


to keep your sewing machine notions close at hand:)


You simply tie it on the machine at the sides for a cover.


You can bet that this handy little mat/cover will be
 traveling with me to every quilt retreat from now on...


to use while I'm stitching away:)



As you know...
all of the photography for the book took place in my home...
here are a few shots that you may not have seen before.
I will have each and every project at the trunk show.






































So come and join me while I talk about each one of the quilts...
and also the mittens runner...
the cups pillow...
 and the fall leaves quilty...



and of course the sewing machine cover:)


And if you are so inclined...
bring along some bits and bobs from your stash 
to sew along with me!


I promise it will be fun!


For all of the information 
about this event and
 also to sign up...


I hope to see you there:)

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

Mary Clark said...

Hold on, hold on!!! I'm on the other line making my airline reservations to fly from Virginia to Utah!!! Once I get there, I may not leave so I'll get just a one-way ticket for now. Oh sigh, I would so love love love to attend this event! And don't forget, your new line comes out soon and I can't wait. Only sad that I can't get the old lines, and since I just discovered you I am dying for some of it all! :)

Hugs ~ Mary

Sounds like so much fun!! I'm with Christine, except not quite as far as she is :-)

Sigrid said...

Wish I could come, but I'll be there in thought!
Thanks for some more pics - they keep inspiring me.
I have to mention that along with the beautiful pictures, glossy, spiral bound pages in your new book - what I love best is that each pattern is complete and even when you need to explain something double, you never say "turn to page so and so where I've already covered this".
Everyone involved did an award winning job!! Thanks so much!

I wish I was closer to you! I love the sewing machine cover and workspace it gives you - I am going to have to order this book - love that it is spiral bound - I have wonder why more quilt books are not!

I have your book on my birthday wish list which is coming up in the month of November. I adore your stuff, your colors, your designs, everything. I can't attend your event, but will anxiously await the "after" photos and comments. Thanks so much for sharing your quiltiness with the rest of us!

Christa Marcotte said...

Want to come to Canada by chance? I think we could have a whole week of great fun with all the local guilds around me!

Kristy said...

Sounds like fun but alas I too am not close by, though closer than Australia. Love all the pictures and the quilts. Can't wait to get your book for my birthday next month. Great job! K-

You are incredible! WOW what beauty! Minnesota is too far away for me to come for the party, but I do have a sofa in my sewing room if you want to make a trip here! Love your work and need to order the book....love the spiral binding!

Katie Cohagen said...

I just received my book a few days ago! I cannot wait to start on page 1 and make each project! I know my mom will love every one so I might be giving them to her as gifts for upcoming birthdays and holidays. Yay!

Pam said...

I just got my Quilty book and it is soooo yummy! But I live in Indiana and we're going up to Boyne for a visit to my husband's uncle. Wish I could be at your trunk show and class. I'd sign up for the whole kit and kaboodle if I were in Utah!

I'll be thinking about all the fun everyone's having while I'm sitting here in Missouri. Love all the pictures, they show the quilts off so well. I've got your book on my Christmas list and can't wait until December 25th to get started on one of the quilts.

QuiltDragon said...

Oh Lori, I wish I lived closer so I could come to the event, it sounds like sooooo much fun!

Question, where did you get the pink Singer? I'm teaching my girly-girl granddaughter to sew and she would LOVE a pink machine!

I just got the book yesterday and am really enjoying it. Thank you!!! Barb

I'm coming out from Calif for a wedding on the 12th and we will arrive on Friday the 8th, so I have the 9th free!!!! I just signed up and am so excited!! I've wanted to meet you in person for a long time and to take a class! Can't wait to meet you! I'll be there with bells on, and my sewing machine in tow!!! Have a great week!! Hugs, H in Healdsburg

lilyrose said...

Looks like a great day...too bad I'm stuck down here in AZ. I would love to attend! I am enjoying your book so much and all your photos just brighten my day! Hopefully, one day I will be able to meet you and take one of your classes.

Peggy said...

I just love all your quilts, your house, sewing room and all your great fabric. Do you want me to keep going? Wish you would come to Indiana. I will be with you in spirit in Utah, only wish I could be there in person. Have a great time.

Art and Sand said...

Oh, my!

Mary at Redo 101 sent me a link to your blog telling me that she thought I would like it since I love color.

Oh yes, I love everything. The big hexagon quilt with the square centers is wonderful. And I love the green table at the foot of your stairs.

I will be back again and again. If I didn't live in southern California and was in Utah, I would definitely be joining you.

Mary said...

OHHH If Only it was on Thursday or Friday. I'll be around the area then. Saturday I need to be with the kids we are going to visit. This is our long needed Vacation so I'll have to pass - Darn it!

Qltr89 said...

I'm sure it will be a fun-filled day. So I hope you all have fun! It's not so easy for me to stop by, unfortunately, since I don't live in Utah.
