grow strong

this is another little doodle quiltie that i created using inspiration from one of my journals. i'm always looking for projects where i can combine lots of different things that i love to do, and these doodle quilties seem to fit the mold!


this quiltie is a little smaller than the others, but still has lots of hand-stitching, beading, hand-carved stamping, and i even snuck some of my painted dryer sheets into the leaf layers....
grow strong!

you can read more about this quiltie here in my etsy shop

Lori,
This is so adorable; I love words
like this, they speak to me~
I love that you are taking your doodles and wonderful drawings to the next level! I think we are
the leaves in blog land that help
give others support, watching their
talent develop.
I like seeing your talent branch out~

Oh Lori...these little quilties are so divine! This message of "Grow Strong" is just what I needed today. My roots have been feeling a little unstable lately. Hope you're well, old bloggy friend!:)

Lori,
Your "quilties" are charming. I have been teaching my girls how to embroider and you just inspired me to show them how to make something more out of their little panels.

Thanks for inspiring others.

Tara said...

YIPPEE! Place my order. OMG...my sister is going to love this! May 25th is her birthday. Perfect for her!
Hugs,
Tara

hi lori,
love these dryer sheet quilties!! and I love that you made one like your "Grow Strong Journal" ~ a perfect compliment to my journal - but I'm holding off as I need to save my pennies right now (daughter's wedding is fast approaching ~ June 5th). I hope you still have it available to purchase after I get all my bills paid....Please..Or maybe I could get you to make another if that one sells ~

Hugs ~ Patricia

I adore trees and loved admiring yours. Simply charming, dahling! I've been incorporating trees into my jewels lately and feel stronger because of it. So loved seeing your tree so beautifully made :))

Pat said...

Lori--you seem to have found the perfect way to incorporate all of your favorite things in one amazing art form with these wonderful little quilties. I'm still waiting for that to happen to me...and in the meantime I'll just keep playing since that's where this all began, right?

trish said...

Hi Lori,

I love your idea of the doodle quilts. It's very creative, and the message of this one speaks to me like it does to others here. Great job. I love following your blog. You're so inspiring.

I love it that you draw inspiration from your journals for your creations.
We all need quotes like this one hanging around our house as reminders and then to use it creatively is even more wonderful.

thank you for your sweet comment on my blog about my dear granddaughter Ella. Being with her on her B/D was so much fun!

Renee Troy said...

I've been saving my dryer sheets because of you.
I love these little beauties. I went to an antique flea market today and picked up some wonderful goodies to makes some quiltie thingajigs. Now I need the time to create them.

lillalotta said...

Love the quilties!!
Always visit your shop, but get a wee bit sad, since you don't ship outside the US.

Beedeebabee said...

I love each and every one of your doodle quits! They really are a perfect art form for your many, many talents!!! Keep doodling, lettering and stitching...the combo is just soooo wonderful!!! xoxo Paulette ;) ...at the risk of sounding like a broken record...this is SO ADORABLE!
