Lori Holt is a well known name in the quilting and cross stitching communities so I’m sure you’re all somewhat familiar with her. It’s funny that I’ve never watched her flosstubes. She only has five as of this writing and I’ve never stopped to watch them. Since I almost exclusively used tone on tone fabrics for my quilting, her fabric never really excited me. I loved that they’re happy and bright though. From what I’ve seen of her cross stitching, which is very pretty, it just isn’t my favorite. I like the old Americana colors and the old samplers, which is weird because with quilting fabrics, I loved bright colors and the reproduction fabrics never appealed to me at all.
The other night, Denise sent me a link to one of Lori’s flosstubes to look at a way she was finishing a piece. I was shocked to see that almost everything she was making was exactly the same type patterns I have and want. You know what happened next . . a few patterns were added. I would never have expected to love most of what she showed, based purely on her own designs.
She also has some very creative ways to finish projects. Her flosstubes are some of the most inspiring I’ve watched. I watched the first four of her flosstubes and that gave me some great ideas as far as finishing some of my planned projects.
If you’re a cross stitcher, and haven’t watched her videos, I encourage you to do so. I didn’t pay a lot of attention but I’m sure she has lots of quilting videos too.
