Apron Club by Lori Holt

The first thing I knew of Lori was about seven years ago. I spotted her Apron Club pattern at International Quilt Market and thought it was just about the cutest thing I’d ever seen. An internet search led me to Lori’s blog and before I knew it, I was knee-deep in the Bee in My Bonnet Row Along.

Quilty Fun by Lori Holt for It’s Sew Emma

Eventually the patterns for the row quilt were published in Lori’s first book, Quilty Fun. This is one of my all-time favorite quilt books. I want to make almost all of these quilts and I believe I actually will.

Great Granny Squared by Lori Holt for It’s Sew Emma

Now Lori’s second book is out, and it features her signature happy color combos and accurate, detailed instructions. Great Granny Squared takes one idea and uses it in different sizes and settings for two quilts, a table runner, a pillow and two pieced, embroidered quilt labels. At $13.95, you get a lot of bang for your buck.

Beautiful photography on every page!

I’d get this book just for the photography. The colors are fresh and the pages are full of light. You have to love Lori’s style, and the folks at It’s Sew Emma know how to capture it perfectly.

Instructions for two embroidered quilt labels are in Lori Holt’s new book.

Aren’t these great quilt labels? Both are patterned in Great Granny Squared.

  24. I’m a grandmother of two, a great Aunt of three new babies/toddler. Up until 2 years ago, you could find me cross stitching. I had been cross stitcher sense the age of 20, it was my passion. Then I discovered y-tube and quilly pleasures. I’m still learning, so your book would be a tremendous help in creating guilts for all my babies big and small, making this my new and more improved passion. Thank you for the opportunity to create fabulous quilts through your books. Regards Maddy
