In 2014, Lori launched her own blog at lorimillerdesigns.com and began to submit her designs to Quilting Publications. Her original designs have been featured in American Quilter, American Patchwork and Quilting, APQ Quilts and More, Fons and Porter Easy Quilts, Quilting Arts Holiday, Make it Patchwork, Make Modern, Quick to Stitch Precuts, Modern Quilts Unlimited, and Modern Patchwork Gifts magazines.
She shared her nostalgic Grandma Town Block of the Month series in 2015 with row by row designs of memories of her Grandparents Iowa farm. Lori’s original mini quilt, Modern Swallow Trail, traveled traveling with the American Made Brand Tiny Quilt Challenge Exhibit in 2016. Her Steppin’ Up Quilt was part of the Quiltcon 2017 exhibit and magazine. She continues to have her work published and sells her original patterns on Etsy and at local Quilt Shows.
Lori blogs for the Electric Quilt Company sharing knowledge of quilt design software for all levels of software users with EQ8 Lessons with Lori.
