Hi, I’m Lori Allred. My life, like a patchwork quilt assembled from pieces collected over time, has blended into a beautiful collection of different crafty talents. I have literally been making things my whole life, but when I made my first quilt in 2017, I was hooked and have been addicted ever since. For me, quilting is the perfect combination of creativity and technical challenge, that results in a lasting and useful object. I am group taught, meaning I learned from quilting with groups of friends new and old. If you want to learn to quilt, go hang out with quilters! I love the challenge of learning new techniques and patterns. And I give everything at least one try before deciding I don’t like a method or style of quilting. I’m drawn to bright colors and the precision of foundation paper pieced quilts. I have been teaching for over 20 years in the craft industry. I live in Syracuse, Utah with my husband of 30 years. I’m the mother of two amazing young adults and love that their significant others are like my bonus kids. While I await the arrival of future grandkids I spend time hanging at home with my two furry family members, Sooki & Pista. If I’m not quilting, I’m cooking. As a Pampered Chef consultant I love teaching others about keto cooking. My day job includes marketing and graphic design, but it still gives me time to quilt and money to buy MORE fabric!!
