As I was looking at the Autumn quilt I have hanging in our living room (click here to learn more about this quilt),
I was reminded of the fun of having it hang in Paducah. Then I got an email from my friend Lori with a link to her current online tutorial, and many memories came flooding back.
I met Lori years ago when I spoke to her quilt guild, but we really got to know each other the year we both had an Oak Leaf and Reel quilt accepted into the New Quilts From an Old Favorite contest at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah. Lori is third from the right:
And here’s her fun quilt:
She is a talented quilter, teacher, author and dear sister in Christ – with a great website: Quilting With Lori. Like me, she’s a teacher at heart and loves to share tips, techniques and step-by-step tutorials.
While watching a recent video of hers on how to “web” a quilt, I thought “what a great technique to share!” But I knew I couldn’t have done the instructions any better, so I thought it would be a great idea to link to the tutorial on her site ~ click here .
Many of you may already use this great technique. I’ve found it saves me some ripping as it keeps everything in the proper order and I’ve not only used it for blocks, but for entire quilts. However I never thought to call it “webbing a quilt”. How very clever!
Lori has books, patterns and templates available for sale, and I think you will be amazed at how much she shares for free. Her site is a wealth of information for quilters. She also speaks and teaches for guilds, virtually and live. Click here to reach her homepage. I know you’ll enjoy getting to know Lori 😊!
