Lori Smith started her quilting business, From My Heart to Your Hands, in 2003 to share her passion for the art of quiltmaking. A self-taught quilter of 25 years, artist, designer, and author who holds degrees in the fine arts and education, her design philosophy explores and builds upon the quilt legacy of our ancestors. Her passion for quilting includes all aspects--the design process, fabric and color selection, hand appliquÈ, machine piecing and quilting, and especially sharing her love of quilting with others through her patterns.Review:
Making small, doll-size quilts provides a wonderful opportunity to experience the ease and exhilaration of creating a quilt without the constraints and inhibitions of working within a much larger format--So says Lori Smith in her introduction to this book of 21 quilts that all measure 16 x 20in on completion.
Other advantages of making small quilts are:
You get to make more quilts, which in turn means that you get to experience a larger number of patchwork and applique designs
You may be more willing to experiment with new colour schemes, new techniques and new styles in a small quilt, building your confidence for larger pieces
You don't need to spend a lot of money on fabric. If you've collected a stash of fat quarters, then you'll probably have everything you need on hand, including the backing fabric
They make terrific gifts being relatively quick to make and of a size that doesn't overwhelm the recipient.
Fat-Quarter Quilting is a project book, apart from a brief introduction from the author, and the standard quiltmaking basics that are published in all Martingale quilt books, there's no tutorials or theory about specialist techniques or quilt making.
There are eight projects made entirely from patchwork and five that are entirely appliqued; the remaining eight combine patchwork and applique. Most of the quilts are shown made in reproduction fabrics, and indeed, virtually all of the patchwork and applique are strongly based in traditional designs, so this collection is very much for those who enjoy quiltmaking classics rather than arty quilts.
Although Lori Smith's name may not be terribly familiar, she is the designer behind the From My Heart To Your Hands label. --by Megan Fisher, Homespun Magazine blog
