Hello Quilters!

I am Lori Miller.
I am a passionate Quilter, independent Pattern Designer, Educator and EQ8 Superfan from Oxford, Michigan.
I love experimenting with fun colors and designs to make playful and clever products for the modern sewist.
Sewing since age 11, I have deep roots in sewing and quilting traditions that add a unique dimension to my designs.

In 2014, I launched my own blog at lorimillerdesigns.com and began to submit my original designs to Quilting Publications. My designs have been featured in numerous magazines including American Quilter, American Patchwork and Quilting, APQ Quilts and More, Fons and Porter Easy Quilts, Fons and Porter Love of Quilting, Quilting Arts Holiday, Make it Patchwork, Make Modern, Quick to Stitch Precuts, Modern Quilts Unlimited, and Modern Patchwork Gifts magazines.  Check out the Published tab for all the details.

My work has also been featured in National quilt shows across the country including my Steppin’ Up quilt which was part of the Quiltcon 2017 exhibit and magazine.  You can find my original designs for sale under the MY SHOP tab.


I love the design process and making my own quilt patterns.  One of my favorite tools is EQ8 Quilt design software and I use it to design my original patterns.  With a background in Information Technology, it is the perfect blend of my old and new skills.  I loved it so much that I began teaching EQ8.  I currently teach classes at my local quilt shop, Decorative Stitch, at the EQ Academy in Ohio and at the Houston Quilt Festival.  I also blog for the Electric Quilt Company at doyoueq.com sharing knowledge of quilt design software for all levels of software users with EQ8 Lessons with Lori.


I was a little late  to jump on the Accuquilt bandwagon, but it is never too late to discover a tool that saves you so much time and provides so much accuracy.  I especially love their GO! Qubes which provide dies shapes that you can use to create traditional block patterns. I am an Accuquilt GO!Getter and I share projects, patterns and tutorials on the AccuQuilt blog.

EQ8 Block Libraries for Accuquilt

I had the crazy idea that folks would like to use EQ8 to design quilts that they could cut out with AccuQuilt.  So I created block libraries to use with AccuQuilt Qubes and BOB (Block on Board) dies.  But that idea was not crazy and lots of folks have supported me and enjoyed using the libraries to design, color and cut their unique creations.  More information on the EQ8-Accuquilt tab.

I am an individual member of the Modern Quilt Guild

I am proud to sew Quilts of Valor for veterans as part of the Stitching Sisters QOV group in Clawson, Michigan.
