One of my favorite Utah quilt designers has just started a blog and I'm so excited! I have loved Lori Holt quilts for years. I've made a few of her traditional patterns, and have collected some of her applique patterns that are still waiting to be done. (someday).
Lori doesn't have a web site, so before now the only way to get one of her patterns or to see new items was if you happened to be in a store that carried her things.
Lori's "Bee In My Bonnet" company specializes in Vintage designs through fabrics and patterns. Her applique quilts are wonderfully creative. She asked because of copyright laws that we not download her pictures, so you'll just have to check out her things yourself. You will find her at http://beeinmybonnetco.blogspot.com/
If you love vintage and applique, these are the quilts for you.
This is one of Lori's traditional patterns called "1930's Black and White". I used the reproduction granny fabrics from the 1920's and 1930's. I made this about 3 years ago before I moved to Southern Utah.
You still can't order Lori's patterns through her (except wholesale), but she does list 2 quilt stores in Utah that you can go to and order her things on- line.
I'm just happy to see what new creations are coming out of her brain, and I love how she tells the stories behind each quilt. This is going to be a very fun blog to follow.
