"Lori did such a wonderful job of quilting my block of the month quilt. When I entered Lori’s work room, she had a beautiful quilt hanging on her display wall, I thought to myself what a great quilt not even realizing it was mine! She takes the time to analyze the quilt to pick designs that bring out the beauty of the design and colors. She quilted a quilt that I made for my sister for Christmas and it was lovely and soft just like a bed quilt should be." -- Marsha K.
"I was a business owner myself for many years doing garment alteration. I "found" Lori when she walked into my shop with her business fliers and a relationship was born! I don't have time to quilt as many items as I'd like so I use her services infrequently but she does beautiful work and I will never go anywhere else. I usually ask her to do whatever she thinks is best for a quilt, and sometimes we put our heads together and discuss ideas. I'm always confident leaving a project in her hands and letting her take the lead. She loves what she does and it shows." -Diane B.
"She provides guidance regarding appropriate fabric types, patterns, and colors, as well as, what will work and not work. Her vision for a completed quilt is a gift and a wonder. She has nurtured my appreciation for the artistry of quilts and the intimacy of the art form. I marvel at Lori’s creative genius and delight in her friendship." -- Denise T.
