Quilty Fun Photo Shoot!

Hello everyone! It’s Kimberly, Jocelyn and Sarah here, writing to you from Salt Lake City! We made the trip out west to visit our dear friend Lori Holt and take some photos for her new book, Quilty Fun. We have spent the past few days surrounded by vintage treasures and adorable projects, and we just had to share! Here is a little sneak peek of the Quilty Fun photo shoot at Lori Holt’s charming cottage!

Quilty Fun is available for pre-order now. Still on the fence? We’ve got some beautiful eye candy that might sway you.

Working hard on our cover shoot.

Cushions too pretty to sit on (almost!)
Her display of mirrors serves to reflect the happiness in the quilts around them.

We are so grateful to Lori for her vision & creativity & hard work in making this all happen. We were awestruck upon entering her house. Where else will you find such a gorgeous aqua piano?
