Coming to YOUR sewing room
October 1, 2013
Leave me some bloggy love and
let me know how you enjoyed the show!!!
Have a quilty kind of day...
Wow! I almost had to go and breathe into a paper bag!!! LOVE all the pictures. And I need to know...... where did you get your Stainless Steel insert for your machine?? My hubby works with metal, and I would love to have one for my sewing machine. Did someone make it for you??
Goodness! I was panting by the time we finished - so much to see, so much to delight in. Thank you!
I'm just blithering now.! It was SO heavenly!! It was awe inspiring, just wonderful!!
Love, love, LOVE the sewing machine mat with pockets/cover! So ingenious!!!
Thank you for sharing - you have a beautiful home! I love all the colors!
I love love love your photos, so awesome. I pre-ordered your book and I'm so anxious for it to arrive.
I loved the show! I lingered over every single photo, trying to absorb every single piece of eye candy! I love the soft color of your walls with the clean white trim. The little jars of goodies in your sewing room, all the shelves loaded with baskets brimming with bright colors of fabric! Your beautiful vintage, painted piece of furniture! I love your beautiful white buffet brimming with red and white dishes :). Each and every one of your quilts is so interesting, I want to make them all! I sure am looking forward to owning a copy of your book. Thanks for all the creative inspiration!!!
Love your idea to combine a sewing machine cover with a sewing mat with pockets for tools. How ingenious!
Every picture is more cheerful than the last one, just what I needed. I love them all, I think I'm ready to quilt again. :)
Thank you, thank you, Lori for sharing all the pictures. Once again I found myself scrolling back and forth.
I especially appreciate that you've invited us into your delightful cottage.
Oh Lori!! What a wonderful post!! So much amazing eye candy and some great tips!! Thank you so much for inviting us into your beautiful space!!
Oh what a fun place to live! I have that same little grocery cart on my kitchen counter!
Knock, knock! It's me. I'm moving in. You won't mind will you? I'm a pretty good cook. I don't think my family will miss me too much. Besides wouldn't they be happy to know I was living with all these gorgeous quilts and painted furniture and happy colors and charming vintage treasures?
(Now this is just embarrassing! My daughter just asked me why I had a goofy grin on my face. I had to admit it was from looking at all your beautiful quilts!)
Just fabulous! So many lovely quilts. Love the apple one with the half eaten apples! Do you have a pattern for that quilt? Love the clean fresh lines of your home.
I love your beautiful pictures, your awesome quilts and your painted vintage furniture. Everything. You have a beautiful home. Thank you for sharing.
I loved the slide show! I missed out on your row along and a few of your pictures reminded me of that. I saw your apple quilt and I can't help but smile, I want to make that quilt. I had added THE BOOK to my wishlist already!
Oh wow, I want to move in. You've set my da up nicely with viewing all this gorgeousness
Wow! Such beautiful pictures of a beautiful home. Thank you for sharing.
Lovely! I have pre-ordered and looking at these pictures has me so anxious that I can hardly stand it.
Be still my heart!!!! Thanks for sharing what a beautiful sight first thing this morning!!!!!
I think I need this book, just looking at the photos in it will make me happy.
Simply fabulous photographs!! Those quilts and quilted projects are amazing - I can't wait to get this book into my shop! Your home and style is wonderful (I no longer feel guilty about painting antiques - you painted your piano! Brave and brilliant!) Look forward to seeing what else you cook up with that pink featherweight at your fingertips.
Beautiful tour of your guilty would.
What fun you must have had creating all the lovely pics and quilts. Thank you for the show. Now I must rewind and enjoy again.
Oh how I would love to come to see your place in person. Everything is so beautiful. Thanks for sharing the photos with us.
Can't wait to get my hands on my pre-ordered copy. These are just amazing.
Oh Lori. I want to stay here all day long! :o) So adorable!!!! Trish xo
Lori, love all your

Incredible! So glad that I have preordered your book.

Beautiful, fun, and inspiring! I want to have a house as special and colorful as yours! Thanks for the tour!
What a treat to have been following your fun on Instagram! I have my copy pre-ordered, can't wait!!
I'm dizzy with all the gorgeous photos of your amazing home - how could a girl get so lucky? You live in a quilty-cottage heaven.
I don't think I would ever tire of seeing photos of your beautiful quilts and home! I LOVE the quilting on the mitten table runner - might have to try it!!
This has got to be what quilt heaven looks like!!! No wonder you are such a happy soul! Love the colors and fun looking into your world. Will you adopt a 60 yr old woman!?
May I come and live with you? Every piece is an art work but I especially love the navy blue quilts.
What eye candy this morning. Love all your colors and painted furniture. And the pink featherweight. Makes me want to re-do my sewing room this fall. An inspiration.
What a wonderful presentation - I am ready to buy the book! Love your mix and variety of antiques and how you have used them, I have many of them but was unsure how to display them. Thanks for the great inspiration.
Everything is just beautiful! Thanks for sharing these pictures of your quilts and your home! :0)
Oh Where, Oh Where did you get your Featherweight painted pink????? I absolutely adore this!
I also want to know what the pattern is for the pocket organizer that is holding the scissors and Ric-Rak booklet. Thanks for the warm welcome into your home! Beyond charm!
I am breathless. You have such a beautiful home. What an eye you have for vintage and color. Your sewing room makes me cry...I want it. Congratulations on all the accolades that are coming your way. You have earned them.
Wow! Your house is amazing! I really love the sewing machine cover with the pockets - how clever.
Thank you for sharing more pictures with us. I am so in love with your adorable house! I just love seeing all your quilty cuteness and vintage decorations. Will you please help me decorate our house? =P I have to warn you though...we don't have much natural light in our little row house.

Lori ... Your home is so beautiful ... so much color, so much inspiration everywhere. Thanks for posting so many photos ... I loved every one! The girls did a great job of photographing everything too. Amazing!
Love the pictures! I recently picked up an old iron like the one you use in your studio for $2 at a yard sale! I can't wait to try it out this weekend. I hope it still works!
Love love love this post. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. I can't wait for your book!!!
I'm hooked. Just pre-ordered your book!
Lovely pics with so much inspiration! Noticed that I have the same old White machine; picked it up at a yard sale for $25. I love it! I've now put aside the fancy computerized machine and am using it as my primary machine. Now I'm on the hunt for a vintage iron like you have!
I can't wait for your book to grace my coffee table! It's beautiful!
I think I just fainted! I would wake up happy every single day if I lived in your house. The colors, the furniture, the quilts, the…absolutely stunning. I am so stinking excited for your book to come out. I have two friends who are a beekeepers and I would love to make them each your bee quilt.
Oh, you just made my morning! What a treat to see all that beauty first thing! (By the way, if you're doing a blog tour, I'd love to be stop on it to promote your book!) email@example.com http://bethstrand.wordpress.com And, can I just say, I hope my house can look like yours when it grows up? I love all your beautiful pieces and how they work together!
Oh WOW! I feel like I have been on a wonderful eye candy trip. Everything is just beautiful - what a lovely place you have created and will be looking forward to the new book..
Thanks for sharing your creative space - loved it.
Um...gee...wow! This is just amazing! I had to scroll through a few times just to take it all in! Is this all in one room or throughout your house? Is that your kitchen that you converted to a crafting space? The set-up & positioning of cabinets & windows say 'kitchen' to me, so I was wondering. Hey, that would be awesome for me - I am not a cook! lol So inspiring! Thank you for sharing all of this beautiful work with us!
Thanks for Sharing! Made my morning coffee a delight, I couldn't stop smiling! I wanta live at your house! I've got to go back and view again!

Love your kitchen! I also browsed through the pictures of your daughters room. I just love how you painted both rooms.
I would love to know if possible the paint colors you used for your walls. Love the pretty blue, green , and yellow walls!

Woman ~ do you ever breathe ? :)
These pictures are so amazing ~ can't wait for your book to come in~ What inspiration this has been.
Again, you are just so amazing!
OMG - My initial thoughts: is this a real house and not a set? How is this house so clean? Would I need valium to live there because I would be almost TOO happy! You home is like a living patchwork quilt - beautiful :o)
Oh Lori, How wonderful for you to have reached this goal. Your quilts and your home are beautiful and show your style perfectly. I can't wait to buy your book and start creating. Thanks for the great inspiration!
Please can I move in?!! I clean, I sew, I do laundry, but I don't cook. I love your house. If I can't move in, will you come decorate my house?!!! Can you tell me what color aqua paint you used? It is so cheerful.
I have all your fabric and now I need to go pre-order the book. Can't wait for it to come out.
You did a Great Job and you should be Very proud of yourself.
LOVE the sewing machine mat/cover! how clever! and all your beautiful colors! it looks like an ice cream shop--so happy to look at.
Loved the pictures! Your style and color palette choices are so similar to mine, that I have to pre-order the book.
I would like to know what the yarn in the bowl is? Do you know the manufacturer and/or the colors? I knit and crochet as well as quilt, and I can see some new hot pads and or afghans in my future using those colors.
You have a great flair for decorating. Love the pictures!
You just make me want to sew, sew, and sew some more. Thanks for sharing it all with us. Wonderful!
Love, Love, Love! There is not a thing I do not like. Connie
What a beautiful JOYful home you have created. Loved every picture. You are a Blessing to me and all your wonderful followers.
Thank You Lori!
WOW! I love your fabric because it is so happy and you've created a home to match. Fabulous!
Love the pictures and how organized you are, can you give us lessons in organization...my sewing room is a mess!!
Your entire house is like a patchwork quilt of fun and bright colors. So cheerful and I loved the irons all lined up and ready for duty!
I can see now that I will definitely be purchasing your book!
Thanks for the photos; they are inspiring!
Love all the pictures! I can hardly wait to get your book. Thanks for sharing.
Ohhh, such fun you've been sharing the last couple of posts. I never get tired of seeing all your pics. What an absolutely fun place to work/live! I always think your bright colors are just beautiful. Thanks for sharing here on your blog cuz I don't do Instagram. :)
What a beautiful, beautiful home!! I've looked at this again and again and am truly amazed (and jealous) ;) Congratulations on all you've accomplished. In your sewing room, why not "frame" your fabric collections on the doors of your upper cupboards... I think that would be lovely.
Are all these photos in the book? I would love to buy it just to flip through it over and over again. ??
Can't wait until 10/1. I have pre-ordered and the excitement is building....
Holy Cow! this is so amazing! I can't wait to have your book in hand and of course I NEED all the fabric to go along with it. I have been collecting it and have made several things with it.
I would love love love to paint some of my old furniture pieces to go in my house and so would if the hubby would let me. I will have to have my craft cottage decorated in this style. I love that you have shared so much with us. Thanks for all you do and keep up the great ideas. You are amazing!
And your family is so cute!
I love every photo...and I can look at them all again and again!!!
Can't wait for your book, and I can't wait for Gracie Girl!
Love every photo! I sew on a White sewing machine just like yours!
Inspirationally fantastic!!! Judy C in NC
All revved up and ready to sew after that awesome picture show...wow! I can't wait to get my copy of your book. I just know it is going to be so great. Your house is so sweet and inviting. I love all the happy colors that you have used. Thanks for the nice distraction from the pile of work on my desk, I needed that!
What a darling darling house you have!! Love the color scheme and all your vintage items!! the quilts just add the right amount of color 'pop' and goes so well w/your vintage theme throughout!
I sure enjoyed the tour!
My sewing room (and me) cannot wait for this yummy book to arrive!!! Thanks for sharing!!!
Destined to be a collectors item. I want 6. I want to give one to my sisters and one to my niece and one for me, of course. And I want them autographed!! Where do I sign and pay?
I can not wait for your book, love, love the photos. Is the fabric used from you beauiful collections. Thank you for the beautiful quilt designs and thank you for showing the photos.
I had preordered your book already, now I am very impatient! I love your home. The bright colors are a tonic to the soul. And when I saw the pocket thingy for the sewing machine I was in awe. What an amazing idea. And now I can make one and finally answer the question "Where IS that seam ripper?" I think I will fill all the pockets with them. As soon as I get the book, and make one.
Can you come and redecorate my house? :)
Loved,loved,loved all the photos! Really like all your vintage items you have. Can't wait to get the new book and some fabric.
I read that first comment...pass the paper bag, please. Awesome photos, and thanks for sharing them!
This looks like so much fun that I had to go order the book! I can't wait for it to arrive!
Love your pictures and your home. How would you like to come to my home and help me with some quilts love?
Just beautiful, Lori. Loved every picture. Your home is so cozy looking. I have already pre-ordered your book. Can't wait!
Lovely photos - what a wonderful place you have created for yourself and family. thank you for sharing.
Oh now I know where you get your color inspiration! I was drooling all over the photos. I love all your collections I.e. quilts, rolling pins, scales, milk glass and even the hair dryers!!! I preordered your book last week and I cannot wait for it to arrive. The pink singer is to die for. Now I will need to find one.... Well off to look again and see what I missed the first time!!! :)
So incredibly gorgeous. It is the most lovely quilty eye candy I could ever ask for. Can't wait to get this book! Congrats!
sewing room envy here
Love every picture Lori! I will be starting that cute apple quilt as soon as your book arrives.
I love, love, love it all. What fun you ladies had with that photo shoot, and all the gorgeous "props". You must be tickled pink.
Oh my gosh, oh my gosh! Could I have your address please so I can come and live in your pretty little house? At least until I can get my hands on that awesome book!
Fabulous. Can't wait.
Love, love, love all the pictures!! Can't wait for the book!! Looks like you all worked hard and had fun getting these photos.
Love, love, love those pictures--what better way to spend some time than looking at quilty pictures--can't wait for the "Quilty Fun" in Oct.
Peacefully overwhelming! Does that make sense?
I LOVED every photo. I enjoy your color schemes and your patterns and fabrics and...
Lordy, we don't have all day.
Your talent shines through and I look forward to your blog and Instagram posts. Now, off to pre-order MY very own copy of Quilty Fun.
Best wishes for a successful publication :)
Loved the photos! We share some happy colors, like the aqua blue and deep red. Just makes me happy to see them together! I pre-ordered your book and I'll be receiving it as a birthday present probably. Fun!
This is a definite delight! Love all the beautiful photos! Oh, I can't wait! I have so many bookmarks from your blog and now they are in a book!
What a great collection of beautiful photos...and a few peaks of the rest of your pretty cottage too!! Thanks for sharing with us.
What a dose of eye candy! I couldn't even begin to choose a favorite project. I'm so excited for your book.

OOOhhhh, AAaahhhh, OOOhhh, AAAAaaahhh, - nice stuff!!
Bloggy love -
I am breathless. How do you get so much done. It takes me forever. I love everything. I think I will not go to any other sites until I finish all those quilts. Thanks for sharing.
Oh, so lovely! And may I have that pink featherweight??? Pretty please?? :-)
I love your pink featherweight! Did you have it painted or buy it that way? If so, who did you have paint it? I also love your vintage turquoise White sewing machine inset in the stainless steel frame. Has it taken the place of your Bernina? Anxious to know how that has worked for you? I love the look of the vintage machines but my experience sewing with them has not been awesome.....thanks for all your darlingness! Truly incredible!
So many pictures! Such beauty! I enjoyed your home as much as the quilts! I think I need to try the butterfly quilt with the dark background. So stunning and I like the idea of navy instead of black. Thanks for the eye candy.
I love your sewing studio! It is the "poster child" for sewing studios!!!! I really enjoyed visiting. Thanks for sharing.
Oh, ich bin total begeistert. Das Buche hätte ich auch gerne, gibt es das auch in Deutschland ? So tolle Sachen und wunderschöne Quilt, ich liebe es.
Liebe Grüße Annerose
Your studio is fantastic, a huge pleasure and joy to visit you.

What wonderful wonderful pictures! Your house is so cheery, thanks for sharing!
WOW ! can't wait for the book to come out and WOW !!!!! you are surrounded by beauty in your home ! thanks for sharing ! will your book be sold on Amazon ????? WOW !!
Thank You Lori, for just being 'You' and for sharing your love of quilting. I have finished my 7 Row Along Quilt Tops (just all the rows, so now ready to sew the rows together and then...) It was almost sad that I came to the end of all of those rows. It was a journey and each row a memory of new and old fabrics. I'm so glad I can look forward to your new book - my spirits have been revived again.
WOW! Thanks so much Lori for inviting us into your home & sharing all the wonderful pics. I LOVE it all - so much charm & color. You put a lot of work into it and it shows.
Wow! I am definitely going to have to have your book! October sounds like such a long time from now. Thanks for all the pics. Beautiful!
You work so hard and make the most beautiful things! I love that green pie safe/sideboard. How do you fold and roll your quilts so perfectly!?
I already put in my pre-order at the FQS for your book: I can't wait!! I love the sewing machine cover, the leaves quilt the houses, and everything else: I think we were twins when it comes to likes in fabric and colors!! Did we get separated at birth? LOL Great job on all your projects, and i'm dying to get my hands on your book. PS, DO YOU EVER SLEEP? How do you get so much done?!!!! Hugs, H in Healdsburg
Where is your house and can I move in? Love all the painted furniture!
Ditto to all the comments above! Love all the photos, and every quilt.
Wow!!! I can't wait for the book. Love all the projects.
You do beautiful work and I love your home's decor.
Put my order in when I first saw your post about the book.....cant wait to get my hands on it......I also love your quilting/sewing studio.....Wish I could get mine out of chaos and into order. Love your color/fabric choices also.
OMG!! Totally amazing!! Love all you bright quilts. Makes me want to venture into my sewing room and start..
Such inspiration. Congratulations on your new book!
Wow. Friggin. Awesome. Can't wait.
LOVED the show!! Love all the quilts and the various ways you have them displayed.
I can speak for everyone when I say thank you for your generosity. You unselfishly take your valuable time to share your talents with us...and we are blown away by you! Thank you Lori!
Well I am absolutely awestruck!! I loved the saunter through your photos, they are wonderful. I quite felt like I was visiting and I so enjoyed my time there. It looks such a restful place although a hive a creative activity. Thank you so much for sharing.
Absolutely lovely! So enjoyed all the color in your sewing space - very inspiring! Thank you for sharing, Linda
Woweeeee! Looking through your photos was an aesthetic delight! Thank you...
Wow! Love everything, but particular your sewing machines! Where did you get a pink and a blue sewing machine? *jealous*
Thank you for taking the time to share all of your beautiful quilts and lovely surroundings in your photos! I love all of the same colors you do--and it sounds like a lot of us like them too. This photo shoot was fun to linger over. Thank you! Phyllis
I love all your quilts in this scrappy style with all the colours!
So much lovely eye candy! Thank you for the inspiration!
All I can say is WOW! I am so jealous! I love the colors, the light, the colors. Oh did I say that already!!
Lori you have the cutest style of anybody!
Lori, I love the way you have incorporated your quilts into the decorating of your home! I love your choice of fabrics. They are beautiful. Thank you for sharing!
Well,,,,,all I can say is, "I am happy all over", after looking at the "Home" pictures. I am new and just signed up for your blog yesterday and I am so glad I did.
Thanks for a great start to my day.
You have so many wonderful ideas and hints. Can't wait to see everything. Thanks, thanks and thanks.
Wow, so fun, so cheerful. Thank you thank you. I'd love to read about your thoughts about building your stash and picking colors they are so cottagy and cheerful, but... tell me more! Jane
Amazing. I wish my sewing room looked this cheerful and neat.
I just love your colorful home! It makes me happy. I'm looking for a place to sign up to follow you but I don't see one... :(
I LOVE your cottage! Can you please share paint colors!? I love the soft yellow. (My craft room yellow seems to dark...) and the GREEN!!! Do you know the name/brand of the green many of your furniture pieces are painted? I keep ending up with a too limey green...ugh! Please help a girl out.
congratulations from barcelona.
What gorgeous eye candy. I am going to come live with YOU! Thanks for sharing all the lovliness!
OMG absolutely gorgeous. Love all the colors. Sew cheery and happy and full of personality. I just got your Quilty book and just ordered your new book. I can't wait to make EVERYTHING in its. You are so inspiring! Even love your floor - show of all of your quilts well. What is the name of your floor?
This pretty post just made my day!! Smile, Smile, Smile!
Absolutely beautiful! I love everything you've done and the colors you chose! Could I ask where you had the featherweight repainted? I love the pink!
I really have enjoyed looking at all of your quilts and the areas that they are in. Love your pink sewing machine. Also, I love the cover you have for it especially since it can be used under the machine and use it to put your scissors and other items in. Great idea.
Rosemary B here:
I just found this page. It is adorable. I love color too.
Your blog is sweet and I really enjoy coming here. I have not gotten the quilty fun book yet, but I do have the great granny book.
You are wonderful, Lori
