Hello, I'm Lou Orth (she/her).


I am teaching "Happy Half Square Triangles".  

About Me

Hi, I’m Lou from Lou Orth Designs. I am a creator of quilt and sewing patterns from Oxfordshire in the UK. I love creating modern, original designs and carefully constructed patterns that make your sewing projects effortlessly fun.

I have created patterns for many craft and quilting magazines (such as Love Patchwork and Quilting and Mollie Makes.) as well as teaching live on Sewing Street TV channel and for Vlieseline interfacing brand.

I have recently set up the Stitch and Make Club which is a quarterly digital ‘box’ filled with exciting new sewing projects and inspiration.

My goal is for you to enjoy the creative process at your own pace, be inspired and make beautiful sewn items.
