Hi! My name is Lori. I’m a 43-year-old veterinary dermatologist (yes…they really do have those!), a mom to 3 cats, 3 dogs, and 2 horses (and 1 barn cat). The “unleashed” in the title refers to my control freak nature. About the only time I’m not in control is when I’m quilting. I just refuse to let being perfect ruin the process for me. My mom has quilted for many years but I was only bitten by the quilting bug a few years ago. Our styles are very different…she hand-quilts everything, I am a machine piecer/quilter. I’m still very much a beginner, but working on a quilting project really relaxes me. I love following the quilting blogs and listen to the quilting podcasts on my way to and from work.
I don’t have a ton of time, between my business and my volunteer duties (not to mention, the fur kids keep me busy!), but I’m hoping that this blog will encourage me to make more time for quilting and more “me” time. There will most likely be posts on things other than quilting, but I still hope you enjoy :) Welcome to quilting unleashed!
