Meet Lori Kennedy, A Quilter Extraordinaire!

Dizzy Daisy Free motion quiltingFree Motion quilting is one of those skills that requires practice, practice, practice. A fine example of a quilt artist who is always testing design and expanding her skill base is Lori Kennedy. Recently a Craftsy presenter, Lori uses doodling to help in her design process. I have been doing some of the exercises along with her over the last few months and I must say it seems to help with my hand-eye coordination as well as open up additional opportunities to learn a new style and a more advanced technique. Does this pique your interest? If so, please follow the link to her blog The Inbox Jaunt to meet her and study her process.
