Gemstone Tumbler Quilt


Lori Allred

Hi, I’m Lori Allred. My life, like a patchwork quilt assembled from pieces collected over time, blended into a beautiful collection of many 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 valuable 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. I give everything at least one try before deciding I’m not too fond of 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 25 years in the craft industry. I live in Layton, Utah, and am the mother of two amazing adult kids. When I’m not quilting I’m on the pickleball quilt….since pickleball is LIFE!! My day job includes marketing and graphic design, but it still gives me time to quilt!
