A 4-H member for 10 years, she grew up in Colorado, entered a sewing project every year and continues to enter competitions. Lorilynn has agreed to share the process from concept to completion of "A Pocket Full of Paisleys."
This project, shown in the photograph, took 3 years to complete. The resulting quilt was on the cover of Machine Quilting magazine and she described in that Nov/Dec 2013 issues her 12 steps and the choices of supplies to accomplish this quilt.
