Introducing…

I am so very excited and proud to share with you, my latest "baby". Many a times I did indeed compare it to child birth so I guess the metaphor has stuck!

My new book….

 

WITH FABRIC & THREAD

 

It feels like it has been such a long time in the coming but I guess if I look at it all with better perspective, it hasn't been that long at all- at least not for a book process that is!

I will tell you much more in the upcoming weeks and share a lot of fun stuff about the process & the projects. For now I am just happy to show you this!

 

Bookcover

 

The book showcases projects that are both geared towards quilters as well as sewers and focuses on both of these wonderful worlds in separate sections of the book!

 

Leave a comment telling me what topic in the book-  QUILTING or SEWING- you are most excited about or interested in and I will enter you to win a mini bundle of our newest fabric collection, California Girl!

We will draw at the end of this week so be sure to check back.

 

Can't wait to hear which "side" you are coming from. Geesh, I can barely wait to show you more goodies!

    Quilting!!

  2. Kristen Sanderson | 20th Mar 12

    Quilting. Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. Patty | 20th Mar 12

    I love both quilting and sewing and am excited to see a book that address both!

  4. Megan | 20th Mar 12

    I’m always excited to see more quilting patterns, but I’ll never turn down sewing eye candy either!

  5. Tina in Nevada | 20th Mar 12

    I actually came across your new book at Amazon last week and preordered it – I can hardly wait for it to get here! I’m a quilter and just love your patterns!

  6. Heidi | 20th Mar 12

    BOTH! Perhaps quilting a little more than sewing… I got a sewing machine to do sewing for my little ones but have ended up falling in love with quilting!

  7. Suzanne | 20th Mar 12

    I’m a novice at sewing but am extremely interested in quilting. Would love to peruse your book and see what I can learn.

  8. Linda Sandusky | 20th Mar 12

    i’m really struggling trying to pick one or the other…after much thought, i’ll go with quilting!!

  9. notnot | 20th Mar 12

    Both!
    I have been sewing for many years, but I “discovered” quilting a bit over a year ago. Now, quilting is taking more and more of my time.

  10. Denise J. | 20th Mar 12

    Looking forward to the quilting portion.

  11. Megan | 20th Mar 12

    I guess I’d have to say sewing, because I love making quilt tops but agonize over the quilting.

  12. cathy payne | 20th Mar 12

    I love both although probably more quilting of late. Thanks for the opportunity to win!! Yeah!!!! Looking forward to a new book purchase!!!! Nurse Payne

  13. Mary on Lake Pulaski | 20th Mar 12

    Congratulations on the new book Joanna! I really can’t choose between quilting and sewing – they are all one happy pastime to me!

  14. Esther | 20th Mar 12

    I am definitely into quilting; but lately have been making a couple of dresses for my grand daughters.

  15. pam | 20th Mar 12

    Congrats it looks so cute! Cant wait to see it in real life!

  16. Denise in PA | 20th Mar 12

    Quilting! But, I’d love to check out the sewing too – I can be swayed. o:)

  17. Anita | 20th Mar 12

    I’m looking forward to checking out the project section. The flower on the cover is simply sweet.

  18. Jessie | 20th Mar 12

    Both!! But I guess I do prefer quilting a little more! ๐Ÿ™‚ I love your last book, and so do all my relatives who have ended with an apron from it!

  19. Rebecca S. | 20th Mar 12

    Probably Quilting, but I love getting sewing ideas as well. I just love California Girl. My LQS just got yardage in and I’m hoping to make it there before the ocean blue is sold out.

  20. Anne D | 20th Mar 12

    Quilting!! I can’t wait to see the book. Thanks for the giveaway.

  21. Liberty | 20th Mar 12

    I look forward to the quilting section. Thanks for the chance to win!

  22. Joanna | 20th Mar 12

    Both! But quilting a little more than sewing! ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Kristen | 20th Mar 12

    Quilting. Sewing. Both! I can’t wait to purchase it.

  24. Betty | 20th Mar 12

    Quilting without a doubt.

  25. Sharon @ A Prairie Sunrise | 20th Mar 12

    Both sewing & quilting for me. I learned to sew garments & quilt within a couple months of each other and go through phases of both. Right now I’m on a quilting kick. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Can’t wait to hear more about your new book!! Congratulations! ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. Beth | 20th Mar 12

    I’m so excited about this book! I will love both sides but will learn from the sewing since I don’t do much of that.
    Beth

  27. Marie Cheesman | 20th Mar 12

    I’ve done both but have to say that at this point in my life it’s the quilting that gets my vote. I’ll be anxious to see the book.

  28. Karen | 20th Mar 12

    Yay !! Quilting mostly — but sewing too !!

    How exciting — Congratulations!

    Karen

  29. Barbara G | 20th Mar 12

    Both! Please don’t make me choose…I can’t imagine my life without fabric to sew!

  30. Kelly Wenhold | 20th Mar 12

    Quilting, quilting, quilting – I think that about covers it!

  31. Christine | 20th Mar 12

    Quilting for me but I’m sure I’ll love the sewing projects too.

  32. Angie | 20th Mar 12

    At first I would say quilting. However, I’m in need for some inspiration to kick start sewing again. Can’t wait to check out both sides of the book! Thanks for the giveaway!

  33. Christine | 20th Mar 12

    I actually learned to sew as I desperately wanted to make quilts. Yet know almost 15 years later, I have decided that I also really like to sew items for my home, my girls, etc. Just wish I had more time to do it all!!

  34. Ashley | 20th Mar 12

    Quilting!

  35. welchrobin@hotmail.com | 20th Mar 12

    I started with “sewing” and then moved into quilting, and I’m most excited with the “sewing” part of your book because lately I have really missed it! I would LOVE some CA Girl– I will use it to make those hooded towels you were kind enough to help me out with (and now I see the book you mentioned– I cannot WAIT to get my hands on my own copy!!!!!) Congrats!

  36. laurel | 20th Mar 12

    i used to be sewing. but i have converted to the quilting side of things!

  37. Donna | 20th Mar 12

    Quilting! Although the sewing will be nice. That was my original love.

  38. JudyBL | 20th Mar 12

    Quilting! thanks for the giveaway.

  39. Ramona Chester | 20th Mar 12

    Quilting and being a long time but now mis-placed California Girl, that collection is dear to my heart!

  40. Louise | 20th Mar 12

    Quilting sounds good to me. I do like sewing projects too, but not today. I’ve been ripping out a zipper on a dress I’m making and can’t seem to get it right. Looking for ward to a quilting project. love your designs

  41. Heather | 20th Mar 12

    BOTH. I totally love that flower on the front, I hope the pattern is included. I will be more likely to make the quilty project, but I love both.

  42. Annie | 20th Mar 12

    Both make me happy, but I’m siding with the quilts, as quilting combines sewing, art, and practicality. I’m looking forward to checking out your new book…it looks like a lot of fun is between those covers!

  43. Manda | 20th Mar 12

    Ooo both!? Probably the sewing side at the moment as I am started to look to learning more sewing! Exciting though I can’t wait to see more!

  44. Rebecca Woods | 20th Mar 12

    I’m very excited about the quilting side as I love quilting but will certainly be checking out the sewing side as well as I like to try that too!!! Congrats on the book! I can’t wait to see it as I know it is going to be amazing ๐Ÿ™‚

  45. LisaAnn | 20th Mar 12

    Both! I do both quilting and sewing and could use extra practice on both so…I can’t wait for your book!

  46. Annessa | 20th Mar 12

    Sheesh, I have to choose? Quilting! No, wait, Sewing! Aw, shucks, both. Can’t wait to see the book!

  47. Brittany | 20th Mar 12

    definitely quilting! ๐Ÿ™‚

  48. Michelle | 20th Mar 12

    I can’t wait to get my copy! I am most interested in the quilting section but have tried to branch out and do a few other sewing projects too. This will be a fun book to try my hand at other things. ๐Ÿ™‚

  49. Kym | 20th Mar 12

    Beautiful! Can’t wait to see the quilting section, thanks for the chance to win.

  50. Nicola | 20th Mar 12

    Looking forward to the quilting projects, Joanna. But am very willing to be pushed out of my cushion-cover-comfort-zone too! x

  51. l@jandle.com | 20th Mar 12

    I’m most interested in sewing. Or at least that seems to be the part I do get to at this point. I do have classic quilts that I want to do in the future.

  52. Meredith F. | 20th Mar 12

    The quilting side…but maybe the sewing side! I need some smaller quicker finish type things. Looking forward to it!

  53. Terrie | 20th Mar 12

    I am pretty solidly in the quilting camp but am willing to venture out of the comfort zone a little bit ๐Ÿ™‚ !!! LOVE the cover, can’t wait to see more !!!

  54. Linda | 20th Mar 12

    HELLO! SEWED GARMENTS FOR YEARS,BUT NOW I’M LEARNING TO MACHINE QUILT, SO I’LL LEAN TOWARD THE QUILTING SECTION. LOVE QUILTING! REALLY LIKE YOUR DESIGNS TOO!
    THANK YOU FOR SHARING!

  55. Marge | 20th Mar 12

    Oh my, do I have to pick one? I started out sewing clothing, and have now gone to sewing other projects, mainly quilting projects. However I am scared of FMQ and haven’t quite mastered it yet. So I guess I’ll be excited about both! And I am really excited about California Girl!

  56. Tatkis | 20th Mar 12

    That book looks so beautiful – congratulations!
    Since I’ve never tried quilting, I’d say sewing ๐Ÿ™‚ but I always wanted to try!

    Hugs,
    Tatyana

  57. Judtih | 20th Mar 12

    Quilting!

  58. Anna | 20th Mar 12

    I am excited about both quilting and sewing. If only we could sew in our sleep. Think of all we would get done!

  59. Sara | 20th Mar 12

    Wow! It’s soooo hard to decide. These days they both go hand in hand. Quilting! No! Sewing! No! Gosh darn…I guess it will have to be both. Judging from the front cover…we can’t go wrong with either! Would love to win this!

  60. Becky Greene | 20th Mar 12

    I love Quilting – it will always be my first love. However, I am trying to branch out a bit, so I might peek at the Sewing section, too – LOL!! Thanks for the chance to win and congratulations on your latest “edition”.

  61. Suzy McQ | 20th Mar 12

    That’s like asking which child you prefer! But, since you are twisting my arm….sewing, just because I’ve done more of it.

    A HUGE congratulations on your new book, it looks delicious enough to eat! Can’t wait to get one into my grubby little hands!

  62. Jeannie | 20th Mar 12

    Quilting! But please know that I come from a sewing world and would be interested in that section, too. So two for one — in the same book. Definitely a money saver, right?

  63. Andrea | 20th Mar 12

    quilting! although I am anxious to read the whole thing!

  64. Kathy McDonald | 20th Mar 12

    BOTH! I spend MOST of my time quilting, but am ready to find a few fun sewing projects for more instant gratification!

  65. Martha | 20th Mar 12

    Well, I guess both. You have to SEW a quilt together before you can QUILT it. I learned to sew 50 years ago. I used my mother’s sewing machine until I graduated from high school and received my own as a gift. I love your fabrics and patterns and can’t wait to see your new book.

  66. Veronica | 20th Mar 12

    I’m looking forward to checking out the sewing section, if the cover flower is into this one, it’s lovely!
    Cannot wait,
    Veronica

  67. Sharon | 20th Mar 12

    Oh, I love both, but would have to pick quilting over sewing. I just know your book will offer much that I will enjoy in both realms. Thanks for the opportunity to win some California Girl…just love the spring-time colors and look of this line. Congrats on the book!

  68. Kris | 20th Mar 12

    Pretty cover! More interested in quilting, however, if the sewing projects are small (i.e. not garments), then I do those too. Thanks for the chance for your lovely fabric.

  69. julianne | 20th Mar 12

    awesome! I am a quilter! ๐Ÿ™‚

  70. Jan Stacey | 20th Mar 12

    I love both but quilting is my favorite. So excited to see your new book!

  71. Christine Diamond | 20th Mar 12

    Oh I’m evenly divided…quilting or sewing…both make me happy!

  72. Laura | 20th Mar 12

    Quilting (but I am sure the sewing part is great, too!) Congrats!

  73. Chris | 20th Mar 12

    I love quilting but I have been getting back into sewing garments and gifts so I am looking forward to both. Congratulations on your book.

  74. Cathy Erickson | 20th Mar 12

    Quilting!!!!!! Beautiful book!!!!

  75. Alice S | 20th Mar 12

    sewing
    I look forward to the book!

  76. Miriam | 20th Mar 12

    Congratulations on the new book! I have to tell you that I truly enjoy both quilting and sewing! I’m always working on quilts but during the summer I’m sewing holiday gifts!

  77. Mary Grace McNamara | 20th Mar 12

    Can’t wait to see more of both quilting and sewing! I am an equal opportunity stitcher! I just made myself a purse using your scrap lab pattern in the latest issue of Quilts and More and I posted about it the other day on my blog, including the changes I made to it to make it work perfectly for me! I love it!

    Thanks for a chance at some of your beautiful fabric!

    MGM

  78. Beth F | 20th Mar 12

    I saw California Girl today for the first time in a quilt shop, it took my breath away it is so pretty. I was a sewer before a quilter but now I hardly sew anymore at all. I cut out a blouse (probably the use of the term blouse tells you how old I am) last summer and never sewed it, maybe this year! I am definitely a quilter rather than a sewer. Thank you so much for your beautiful fabrics and blog. I can’t wait to see your new book.

    Beth F.

  79. Lynda H | 20th Mar 12

    right now it is quilting, but as my grandbabies grow (they aren’t a year old yet) I will be doing lots of sewing for them (triplets)!

  80. audrey | 20th Mar 12

    definitely the quilting. your fabrics always inspire me to do more quilting!

  81. Karinm | 20th Mar 12

    I like sewing and quilting but sewing is the my favorite.

  82. Darlis Johns | 20th Mar 12

    Quilting projects but I also do lots of sewing. Anxious to see more of the book.

  83. wendy | 20th Mar 12

    Oh, hands down – QUILTING! I’m obsessed (and I love, love, love California Girl – so wonderful!!)

  84. Kim | 20th Mar 12

    Like both but I would say quilting is my thing at the moment. Looking forward to the book!

  85. Kim | 20th Mar 12

    Love both but quilting is my thing at the moment. Looking forward to the book!

  86. Patty D at NC | 20th Mar 12

    Quilting. I love your fabric lines!,,

  87. DebrafromMD | 20th Mar 12

    I always look for the quilting projects first but I love to sew too! Can’t wait to see this new book.

  88. Carla | 20th Mar 12

    Quilting is my obsession but I also look forward to seeing the sewing projects.

  89. Cheryl | 20th Mar 12

    Whee! So excited! I love both – been doing more quilting lately – but love non-flat projects as well:-)

  90. Karen | 20th Mar 12

    Quilting out of the two options, but a third option should have been the project photography. You never disappoint with pictures.

  91. Marcia P. | 20th Mar 12

    I so appreciate your creative talent. And the colors, what can I say, they say peace, calm, warmth and security to me. I would love quits and them many petite projects. I think I have all of your patterns. I really should send you a picture of lateste that I finished. I have to admit I added a bit. My hubby requests that I do something different so he knows what part is goes to the head of the bed. So I had to add that. You Go Girl!!!

  92. Tracey Rampling | 20th Mar 12

    While I’m always keen to see quilting projects, I have to say I’d be quite excited to see your sewing section… I just read your “Designer Tidbits” interview on the Jolly Jabber and I’m in love with those little mice! They remind me of the felt mice my mom made when I was a kid – she did them as teacher gifts one year.. there was a set of Christmas mice (boy & girl) and Wedding mice (bride & groom).. I’ve been meaning to make her find the pattern so I could make some for my Christmas tree, but yours would be gorgeous to make too!

  93. Sandy M | 20th Mar 12

    Congrats on your new “baby”! I look forward to seeing the quilting projects!

  94. Caro | 20th Mar 12

    I’m on the quilting side. Congratulations on hatching your new baby!

  95. Elizabeth | 20th Mar 12

    Oh goodness–honestly, I’m interested in both! I’m new to both quilting and sewing and enjoy them both! Can’t wait to hear more details about the book! ๐Ÿ™‚

  96. Lisa | 20th Mar 12

    Quilting!!! Thanks for the chance to win!

  97. Frankie | 20th Mar 12

    I love to do both, but quilting is my first love. I can’t wait to see this book!!

  98. Kristy | 20th Mar 12

    Well, you really got me here. I am a quilter and a sewer. I love them both!! You hit the jackpot in my opinion with this combination.

  99. Diana | 20th Mar 12

    Looking forward to the quilting projects, but will check out the sewing stuff. Thanks for the giveaway,

  100. Christina | 20th Mar 12

    Quilting!

  101. Miranda Evans | 20th Mar 12

    I have to choose just one??? Well, I’m going to say quilting, but I’m a little torn! ๐Ÿ™‚

  102. Jenny | 20th Mar 12

    i can barely wait to SEE more goodies!
    im definitely the quilting side of things!
    but your little crafts and pincushions make me want to convert!

  103. Danicia | 20th Mar 12

    I am a quilting and sewing junkie. I look forward to the entire book. Good luck to all!

  104. Carmen Wyant | 20th Mar 12

    I think sewing for now, am loving what I can see on the cover & am excited for you!

  105. Natalya Hoak | 20th Mar 12

    How awesome! Congratulations on your book! I look forward to getting my hands on it and devouring it ๐Ÿ™‚ I just picked up a charm pack of California Girl to dream and play with before buying larger quantities. Love all your lines!

  106. Bari Jo | 20th Mar 12

    I love them both, but I think my first love is quilting!!! Can’t wait to get my hands on your new book! Love the one I have! Your new baby looks adorable! :O)

  107. Audrey Schaefer | 20th Mar 12

    My roots are with sewing, but quilting has become my new obsession.

  108. Angie C | 20th Mar 12

    Very interested in the quilting! Can’t wait to see more of the book ๐Ÿ™‚

  109. Sonya | 20th Mar 12

    Quilting!! I love your patterns AND your fabric!

  110. Mary Ann | 20th Mar 12

    Quilting but I always enjoy sewing projects too from children’s clothing to toys.

  111. Julie Love | 20th Mar 12

    I love quilting just a tiny bit more than sewing! Love the cover – can’t wait to peek inside!

  112. diane stanley | 20th Mar 12

    quilting for sure

  113. Trisha W. | 20th Mar 12

    I go back and forth all the time, I quilt, I sew, I quilt then sew. So I’m Excited about both, really! Love everything that you do, you’re an inspiration!

  114. Wendy Forbes | 20th Mar 12

    Looking forward to the quilting projects as I adore your fabrics and quilts.

  115. Jan | 20th Mar 12

    Both! I love quilting although I have never made anything larger than a crib quilt. And I love to sew – I used to do that for a living. Looks like a gorgeous book.

  116. Laura G | 20th Mar 12

    I am very excited about the quilting projects. Thank you for the contest.

  117. Kristy | 20th Mar 12

    The cover of the book looks adorable! I love quilting and sewing….lately I’ve been making a lot of totes, change purses and makeup bags.

  118. Lisa | 20th Mar 12

    Oh, I am really bad at picking sides — definitely FABRIC first! If I have to choose…QUILTING! Congratulations on your new baby, I can’t wait to see her up close and personal.

  119. Cecilia Young | 20th Mar 12

    I would have to say quilting! Thanks for the giveaway.

  120. Bebe | 20th Mar 12

    Quilting! But I have sewn stuff all my life–to me, it’s all sewing, but currently have more of a repertoire of finished quilts, quilts in progress, quilt kits wating to be made, and quilt designs waiting to be drawn…so it’s quilting!

  121. Laura | 20th Mar 12

    Oooh, this looks like a fabulous book. I would have to say I’m looking forward to the sewing projects, although I’m sure the quilts will be beautiful to look at.

  122. Brooke | 20th Mar 12

    OH, Congrats! Quilting, for sure, although I’m excited to see it all!

  123. Cheryl | 20th Mar 12

    I’ve sewn all my life (well, since 8 years old) !!!! Love sewing quilts. LOVE being inspired by your beautiful fabrics and designs!

  124. Jen | 20th Mar 12

    Looks lovely! Will be fun to see both sections!

  125. Kathie | 20th Mar 12

    I would have to say I am more interested in quilting projects. Though I love a little fun sewing project too now and then!! k.bugbee@att dot net

  126. Sandy Stoessel | 20th Mar 12

    I am interested and happy to hear that both crafts will be in the book. I started sewing my own clothes following my mother who sewed everything for me, even my wedding dress. After I married I took sewing up for my self. I then became interested in home decor which led me about 6 years ago to quilting, which is now my greatest love. I love Fig Tree Fabrics and just bought your new kit California Girl for a quilt for my bedroom.

  127. ycreations | 20th Mar 12

    I love the fabrics and the quilts.

  128. Nicole Gendy | 20th Mar 12

    Most interested in quilting, but sewing is enticing too!

  129. Tami | 20th Mar 12

    I cannot wait to read about the quilting projects! I also just saw you on the Fat Quarter Jolly Jabber and wrote my “feelings” about your fabrics…..but I think you already know that I LOVE all of your fabric lines and I am sure your book will be no different.
    Tami

  130. robin | 20th Mar 12

    Quilting!

  131. terry | 20th Mar 12

    I bet the quilting projects will be great! but would love the sewing projects also. Love the cover….

  132. Lou | 20th Mar 12

    Ooooh, this looks like a great book. Quilting would be my preference, but it’s all good.

  133. samanthacoombes@me.com | 20th Mar 12

    Both !!!
    I love your designs and fabrics, would love to have a copy of your book for even more inspiration….x

  134. Tracey Holdyk | 20th Mar 12

    squeel!!! how exciting and I can’t wait to see all the projects. Quilting is my new obsession but sewing is never far away.
    thanks for the chance.
    love me ๐Ÿ™‚

  135. Sharon | 20th Mar 12

    Who could really pick — I have been sewing since I was 10, so that’s 52 years and I have been quilting for about 5 years so I guess a little of both!! Thanks for the chance to win some of your absolutely lovely fabric.

  136. Cathy | 20th Mar 12

    Usually quilting but right now perhaps sewing since I don’t have much time.

  137. Vicki โ™ฅ | 20th Mar 12

    I am into quilting more and congrats on your book….It looks absolutely fabulous!! Hugs Vicki x

  138. Abby | 20th Mar 12

    I am always excited about learning all kinds of new things in quilting, but I am trying to branch out and make more three dimensional projects. I want to conquer all of my sewing fears and learn to make beautiful things of all kinds.

  139. cynthia | 20th Mar 12

    I like both…quilting and sewing for children ๐Ÿ™‚ Your book looks wonderful, and I sure want some California Girl!!!

  140. madebymum | 21st Mar 12

    can’t wait. I am looking forward to the sewing side

  141. Suzie | 21st Mar 12

    Sewing for me. Your book looks so inviting. Your colours are always so lovely.

  142. Kell | 21st Mar 12

    Quilting but looking forward to the sewing too. Thanks for the giveaway.

  143. florence | 21st Mar 12

    Quilting ! But also sewing !
    The cover pincushion is tempting !
    Thank you for the giveaway !

  144. Susan | 21st Mar 12

    Both…I have paint chip colors taped on my walls, I am in the process of changing out one very large room to all fig tree colors and fabrics. So needless to say I am kinda hoarding yards and yards of different lines to mix and match for cushions. Of course it is already gonna be loaded with quilts. Just gotta get the hubs to help me paint.

  146. Tracee | 21st Mar 12

  150. Marianna Bergkamp | 21st Mar 12

    Wow. I love to see your new book! I am into quilting. Tried the sewing part, like making a pincushion, but it didn’t do it for me much. So back to quilting with Fig Tree fabrics! Just love you lines!

  151. Leota | 21st Mar 12

    Definitely, the quilting. Love all of your fabric lines and California Girl is simply devine.

    not such an investment of time.

  186. Joan B | 21st Mar 12

    I started out sewing clothes for my two daughters when they were little, and more recently for my granddaughters. I started quilting about 5-6 years ago, and I LOVE quilting. Although I can sew, I would prefer to sew quilts. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  213. Debbie Hays | 21st Mar 12

    How can you choose between the two? It looks as though you feel the same way. Isn’t it a blessing to be able to do both? And.. to share it all with your photography? I so enjoy your pictures! Debbie

  221. Cindi P. | 21st Mar 12

  230. Jean | 21st Mar 12

    I’m a quilter and I love your patterns and fabrics. BUT I also enjoy a small sewing project now and then. Love the cover!

  232. NQuinn | 21st Mar 12

  244. hmbound@yahoo.com | 21st Mar 12

    I love the quilting designs the most.

  245. DianeH | 21st Mar 12

    I can’t wait to see it up close

  248. Malinda | 21st Mar 12

    I do more quilting these days than garment sewing, but really, anything with fabric is fun!

  249. sue felton | 21st Mar 12

    Oooo…..pick between quilting and sewing…..that’s like trying to pick between white chocolate and dark chocolate!!! As of today, I would pick quilting…LOL…

  250. j maggio | 21st Mar 12

    I am waiting for the quilting portion–but, I am sure I will get plenty of ideas form the sewing section of the book.

  251. maria elena | 21st Mar 12

    Decisions, decisions! I love both, sewing and quilting are both passions! Thanks Maria Elena

  252. Kristin | 21st Mar 12

    I also do both, so it’s hard to pick! But with a very busy family life, I find that I can fit in sewing projects a little bit more than quilting…I just bought your Stanley pattern and look forward to seeing all the wonderful things in your new book!

  253. Carol | 21st Mar 12

    I would be more interested in the quilting projects. But I’m so happy to see the resurgence in sewing interest. That’s how I started out as a young wife and mother…sewing for our children and myself. But since finding quilting, that’s been what I’ve most enjoyed. Your new book looks lovely. Carol

  254. Mary B. | 21st Mar 12

    I am 99% a Quilter and 1% crafts. I collect the most beautiful fabrics I can find and have a hard time cutting into them. However with your great patterns and ideas, it has gotten me off the fence! Thanks for your luscious colors!!

  255. Donna conklin | 21st Mar 12

    I can’t wait to check out all the projects, family and friends are always asking for handmade gifts. I am seriously coveting the Californnia Girls fabric, being one for 38 years and then leaving for FL. The xolors in the collection rock!

  256. Bonnie Nyquist | 21st Mar 12

    Quilting and sewing! I do love litle projects to make for my family they can get no other place!! Handmade with love. Those slippers on your daughter the cover look very interesting!!

  262. Kim | 21st Mar 12

    I am so excited to get this beautiful book! I have never quite been able to get enough of your beautiful projects!!! So YEAH!!!!!

  263. Donna Bee | 21st Mar 12

    I’ve been sewing since I took a class in junior high school and made my first quilt at 18 from scraps my mom had on hand (she made many of our clothes at the time). I didn’t sew much while my kids were young but am making up for lost time now. Quilting is my favorite past time now that I own a rotary cutter! Looking forward to your book. Love love your fabrics!

  264. janita | 21st Mar 12

    I grew up as a sewing girl, but mostly now I am a quilter. This book looks delightful! I see some slippers your daughter is wearing on the cover, that I am guessing are in the book. Those would be perfect for my little granddaughters. Thanks for a chance to win some of your yummies! janita

  265. SandyD | 21st Mar 12

    Looking forward to the quilting projects but I am sure the sewing part will have something to interest me.

  283. Marguerite Guinn | 21st Mar 12

    My background is sewing – I grew up participating in 4-H and made almost all my own clothes until my mid-twenties.

    My current interest lies with quilting – I haven’t made a garment for myself in over 20 years! I absolutely love working with pattern and color and shape and creating a one-of-a-kind piece! It is an amazing thing!

  284. Debbie | 21st Mar 12

    welllll…sewing got me into quilting, then quilting got me back into sewing…guess it kinda goes hand-in-hand!

  285. Bettie F | 21st Mar 12

  292. Melissa | 21st Mar 12

    I look forward to the sewing projects. I started sewing as a child and made everything for myself as a teenager. I picked up quiltig as a retiree because I wanted to sew. I am looking forward to the projects. I am overwhelmed with the number of quilts I have given away and look forward to a new challenge.

  304. Marsha Ennis | 21st Mar 12

    I love everything you do, can’t wait to see it all.

  305. Grandma Rita | 21st Mar 12

    Well I’m a quilter but I am open to learning new things so I’m curious about the sewing projects.

  306. Deb A | 21st Mar 12

    Gotta be quilting, I’m not a clothing sewer. Looks very nice. Thanks!

  307. Claudia | 21st Mar 12

    Pick? I have to pick? I’m a quilter and have always loved anything to do with quilting. I love ideas for things to sew for my home. I also love your color pallet. It makes me happy.

  308. Vicki | 21st Mar 12

    It’s quilting for me!

  309. Patty | 21st Mar 12

    I am most interested in the sewing side of the book. I’m looking forward to making something other than quilts. Thanks for the giveaway.

  310. Sunnybec | 21st Mar 12

    Quilting first then sewing for me. Thanks

  311. Marcyne | 21st Mar 12

  312. Robyn Brown | 21st Mar 12

  313. Cathy K. | 21st Mar 12

Love California Girl, could only find charms at the quilt show last week ๐Ÿ™ BTW, I’ve decided I want to use the colors in your header when I redecorate, to me it would be sublime!

  319. Karyn | 21st Mar 12

    I would be more interested in the quilting section, although I’m open to any crafty project with fabric and thread!

  323. Ruth B | 21st Mar 12

    I would definitely say quilting..unless by sewing you mean cute little pincushions and what not. Garment sewing isn’t my thing. Can’t wait to see your new book Joanna!!

    Have a super great sewing and stitching day.

  342. Sorchagirl | 21st Mar 12

    It definitely would depend on the project–I love you both your quilting and sewing projects. The backpack I made for my niece was easy to sew and she loved it. But I made the tablerunner at Valentine’s and my daughter-in-law loved it.

    This California girl thanks you for the opportunity to win some of the California Girls fabric!

  343. Annette Crain | 21st Mar 12

    Congratulations Joanna on your beautiful new book! Sounds like a wonderful combination of projects for every sewer.

    Keep up the good work and thank you for the giveaway.
    Nettie

  344. Carol Holmquist | 21st Mar 12

    I like both quilting and sewing but currently sewing is my favorite. I think because generally you see the finished product with sewing sooner. Thanks for the giveaway!

  345. Shirley | 21st Mar 12

    Wow, you’ve hit the ball out of the park again! I enjoy both, but quilting is my preference.

  346. Pegela R. | 21st Mar 12

    Quilting for me. Your California Girls collection is adorable, best collection yet. I think I say that every time you release a new line of fabric.

  347. Labbiegirl | 21st Mar 12

    Both…but I love sewing little projects..pin cushions, birds, etc. [bec. my first love is needlework] …can’t wait to see your flower pattern!!
    Thanks for giving us a chance to win.

  348. Carhy Clawson | 21st Mar 12

  349. Melodee Cartin | 21st Mar 12

    Quilting, but lately I have been enticed to sew some clothing.

  350. Toni-Anne | 21st Mar 12

  351. Sharon | 21st Mar 12

    I can’t choose just one.. I love them both! Looking forward to your new baby.

  352. cmw60@yahoo.com | 21st Mar 12

    I’ve just found you so I’m super excited to see your new book! I’d bounce back and forth between Sewing and Quilting … hoping for sewing items for little girls (I have 5 grandbabies ALL girls) and then quilting for friends and gifts!

  353. Jonelle | 21st Mar 12

    The quilting will be great but I do like to switch it up and do sewing projects every now and then. Can’t wait.

  354. LeAnn H. | 21st Mar 12

    I can’t pick because I am so excited that you now have a book!!! I sure hop I can get my hands on it soon since my brain is now in “want” overload!

  357. Julie | 21st Mar 12

    Can’t wait to buy your book!! I think I’m on the quilting side. But I don’t know… I love the idea of the sewing side too. Pretty much anything you do will be amazing though – that I know. ๐Ÿ™‚

  358. lodefleur | 21st Mar 12

    quilting of course but also love to see the sewing projects. can’t wait. thanks for the opportunity.

  359. Perry | 21st Mar 12

    Quilting would have to be my favorite of the two, but I would like to see what you are tackling as far as just sewing is concerned. You have always had some patterns geared more toward sewing than quilting and they have always been terrific. Looking forward to this book.

  360. Mary Jane Link | 21st Mar 12

    Quilting and sewing, it will be wonderful to have one book for both from a designer I so enjoy!

  361. Liz M. | 21st Mar 12

    I love all sewing, but especially quilting. Your fabrics just make it way more enjoyable to do either.
    Love, love them!

  362. Darcene | 21st Mar 12

  376. Barbarabesque | 21st Mar 12

    I have enough quilting projects in process to last a lifetime….
    somehow I still am intrigued by what’s new ! Especially made up in
    FigTree fabrics. Right now I’d love to have some small sewing projects
    for a change of pace and the satisfaction of finishing something.

  377. cathy | 21st Mar 12

    both…………!

  378. Mary | 21st Mar 12

    Quilting is what I usually do, so I can’t wait to be inspired to sew.

  389. Karen C | 21st Mar 12

    I’m choosing the quilting projects, but am sure your sewing projects will be candy! Can’t wait to open the pages of your book and get inspired! Maybe a Mother’s Day gift idea?

  390. Tracy | 21st Mar 12

    Both! I taught myself to sew in Jr Hi and just a few years ago tried quilting and fell in love all over again. I can’t wait to see the new book!!

  393. Jan | 21st Mar 12

    Sewing, then quilting! I enjoy all your little projects.

    Thanks for the giveaway and greetings from germany, Hildy

    Quilting with a little bit sewing (I do have a grand daughter)

  405. Bonnie Goodrich | 21st Mar 12

    Sewing because there are already so many quilting books on the market. It is refreshing to find the few that cater to both sewers and quilters.

  406. Janelle J | 21st Mar 12

    Definitely quilting thought I find the sewing projects enticing sometimes. Thanks!

  407. Roxanne | 21st Mar 12

  409. Ferne | 21st Mar 12

    You mean I have to choose? I like to do both though lately my focus has been quilting. I keep thinking of ideas to quilt something wearable though and I feel that I have learned more about sewing in general through my quilting so the two go hand in hand for me.

  410. Kimberly | 21st Mar 12

    I love quilting because each part; from picking fabrics to sewing on the tag are special when making a quilt! I do love; however, the chance to make a sweet little pincushion!

  411. Adina | 21st Mar 12

    Quilting is my current love, although I’m sure I’ll see something in the sewing that I’ll want to give a go.

  412. Brenda Trojcak | 21st Mar 12

    Quilting is my love, but I love sewing things for my home too, so I love both but if I had to pick one I would say quilting. I have a group of friends and quilting has kept us together for over 20 years, I feel for certain that had it not been for our love of quilting we would have drifted apart. Love your fabrics and patterns and can’t wait to get my hands on your new book!

  413. Marianne | 21st Mar 12

    Twenty years ago I would have answered sewing, but today Quilting!

  414. Gwen | 21st Mar 12

    Quilting!

  423. Rosanne Derrett | 21st Mar 12

    Normally I could be yelling ‘Quilts’ but its those bootees on the cover that have me. I seldom wear shoes in the house summer or winter so having something simple and light that could double as sleepwear would be fantastic! I’m adding your book to my wishlist now.

  424. liz f | 21st Mar 12

    I’m definitely more of a sewer, but I love quilting, too!

  425. Lani Ichikawa Ennis | 21st Mar 12

  455. Polly | 21st Mar 12

    How exciting! Quilting for sure, but since we just had our 6th grand-daughter, I’ll be hoping you have projects for little girls. Always love seeing your darling daughter wearing her cute clothes made by you.

  456. Shelli | 21st Mar 12

    Sewing…..except I think maybe there’s a quilter inside me yearning to break free. ๐Ÿ™‚

  457. Kate Brown | 21st Mar 12

    The quilting part for sure, though I sew too so I would probably use the whole book!

Thanks for your imagination so I don’t have to imagine, but be inspired.

  462. Diane | 21st Mar 12

  507. Barbara | 21st Mar 12

    I love the combination of the two. But, since I need to pick one, for the present I would pick sewing — tomorrow it might be quilting! That’s why this sounds like such a fantastic book! I don’t have to choose!

  508. Karen | 21st Mar 12

    I’m coming from the quilting side. But, cant I say I’m coming from the “color” side? I do so love your palette of colors! I think that is what attracts me to your book!!! Thanks for the chance of winning California Girl!

  509. Sherie | 21st Mar 12

  515. charlotte | 21st Mar 12

  580. anderson.sarahrae@gmail.com | 21st Mar 12

    I love your unique sewing projects so I think I’ll go with sewing but the title of your book is perfect for both quilter and sewist. I think it’s my favorite book title (for fabric arts…)

    As a gal who grew up in Huntington Beach, California Girl has special meaning to me, so I am excited about this giveaway. I loved your Jolly Jabber interview today–so much of what you talked about had resonance for me, like hanging out at the pier. Good times, good memories.

  584. Donna Barwish | 22nd Mar 12

    mostly quilting for me, but love pin cushions too! thanks for the chance to win somw beautiful fabrics..Donna

  585. Ginger Ashworth | 22nd Mar 12

    It is so weird, that people do not seem to understand the terminology of what they are saying and doing. Many people I know at several Bay-Area Quilter’s Guilds seem to outsource the quilting portion of their quilt projects. So, what they actually like and actually DO is the piecing, perhaps some designing, but it is the SEWING of pieces together into shapes and patterns that is the icing on the cake. But, for some reason, many people call that process “quilting” because the end product is a Quilt. It is actually the SEWING that is most people’s true love. Me? I LOVE to hand quilt, it soothes my soul, I can sit in the same room as my husband and work pretty patterns as he gets entertained by a NetFlix show. We are together, we are both happy with our entertainments. I also love to sew, but sitting at a sewing machine is an isolated event, so, I prefer to hand-sew at the very least any appliquรฉs. My answer to your question: I love both SEWING and QUILTING!

  586. Carolyn Gibbons | 22nd Mar 12

    I like the little sewing projects! It looks like a wonderful book!

  587. Jan Richards | 22nd Mar 12

    I enjoy both sewing and quilting.
    Thanks for a chance to win some
    California Girl.

  588. Flora Pena | 22nd Mar 12

    I am really excited about your new book and i can’t decide which i am more excited about. I love all your patterns and own so much of your fabric as i just can’t seem to get enough of it. I hope your father is doing better. Prayers go out to your family. God Bless’

  595. Bambi | 22nd Mar 12

    How do you choose? I guess I will go with sewing – I can’t wait to get my hands on this new book since I’m pretty sure I already have all of your other patterns. Oh and California Girl? Yes, please!

  600. Teresa | 22nd Mar 12

    I love quilting but I’m really excited about the sewing part of the book!

  601. hugoria | 22nd Mar 12

    Quilting. Thank you for all beautiful things

  602. Diane | 22nd Mar 12

    Quilting! But I am intrigued by the sewing projects as well. thanks for the giveaway!

  603. Debra | 22nd Mar 12

    I love the creativity of both quilting and sewing. The combination of topics is great. Thank you!

  604. Jan Harritt | 22nd Mar 12

    I have been sewing and quilting for decades and still wish I could be doing one or the other every day. Whichever project strikes my fancy is where I’ll start. Sometimes enjoying the book is joy enough when a day of work or gardening gets all the energy. LOOKING FORWARD TO IT!!

  605. Barb | 22nd Mar 12

    Both! Can’t wait to see the book – love the cover. Thank you for the chance to win.

  606. Debbie Farrar | 22nd Mar 12

    Can’t wait to check out the sewing projects. It is nice to have a little change in projects.

  607. Ellen Sickler | 22nd Mar 12

    Tough choice, but I’m old school, gotta say sewing and quilting is the bonus. Would love to see my 6 year old granddaughter (my New Jersey girl!) under one of your California Girl quilts!

  608. sndy1 | 22nd Mar 12

    Definitely, most excited to see the ‘quilting’ sections. Thanks for the chance to win.

  609. Ruth Arrowsmith | 22nd Mar 12

    I would love some sewing patterns that use leftover quilting fabric.

  610. Kenna | 22nd Mar 12

    Definitely quilting but I want to get into sewing as well. Congratulations on the new book! I’m very happy for you.

  611. Julie C | 22nd Mar 12

    You can’t go wrong with quilting and I love your patterns already! Really looking forward to the book!

  612. Linda | 22nd Mar 12

    Quilting is my passion, but I have been known to sew up a cute apron or bag pattern, as well. I’m looking forward to seeing your new book. Congratulations! Linda

  613. Vicki J Papin | 22nd Mar 12

    Quilting? Sewing? I love both, quilting beautiful quilts and sewing wonderful bags, skirts, aprons and of course dresses for my granddaughter. Can’t wait to buy the BOOK:)

  614. MollyP | 22nd Mar 12

    Tough choice. I love your style in both deprtments. I would probably go with sewing because you have such great techniques with your sewing projects that I would like to learn. The cover is gorgeous. It is now on my wish list. Thanks!

  615. Kathy R | 22nd Mar 12

    I love both but have been spending a lot more time sewing little projects lately. Can’t wait to see the book!

  616. Christy | 22nd Mar 12

    I am a quilter but I have to say I would love to branch out into sewing more and projects that maybe don’t take as long as a quilt! Also I am trying to organize a little retreat for a small group of friends and I think your book may be just the ticket to inspire some great sewing time ! Thanks for your continued inspiration…

  617. Deb | 22nd Mar 12

    Sewing is may passion…anything needle & thread. Love the title of your new book, Congratulations!

  618. Marie Eddins | 22nd Mar 12

    This would be a hard choice for me as I am both! I started sewing first in my creative life and in the last 13 years or so have been a quilter. So perhaps quilting is first for me, but I’d love to check out and perhaps make some of the sewing projects! California Girl is so sweet~so you with a little extra freshness. Would love to add it to my stash to make one of your new projects!
    Thanks*

  619. Serena | 22nd Mar 12

    I love both, when I sew or quilting for me are the great moments of relaxation. Sorry for my english.

  620. Miz Karen | 22nd Mar 12

    Quilting mostly but sewing also. Thanks for the giveaway

  621. Lynn D | 22nd Mar 12

    I’ve been sewing for a couple of years. I would love to learn how to quilt.

  622. Margo Piikkila | 22nd Mar 12

    Quilting definitely. Quilting is such an creative, exciting habit!

  623. Susan | 22nd Mar 12

    I’m eagerly awaiting the sewing section! (I’m not a quilter.) I love your blog and take such inspiration from it! Thank you so much!

  624. Cathi | 22nd Mar 12

    Congratulations! I’m most interested in the quilting section but who knows, I might just have to try my hand at a sewing project!

  625. Corrie Broughton | 22nd Mar 12

    Quilting!! Love the California Girl fabrics.

  626. Michelle Rodriguez | 22nd Mar 12

  633. Lee | 22nd Mar 12

    I’m a quilter! Hope you win the challenge

  637. Lexie | 22nd Mar 12

    Oh my goodness Quilts & Sewing! I’m really obsessed with quilt books though!

  638. Melanie Glade | 22nd Mar 12

    I go back and forth between the two as the ages and stages of my life vary. I started out sewing quilts while living with my ailing grandmother as a young girl. Through college I sewed. Marriage and my own home brought lots of quilting, babies brought both, and now I struggle to find time for any of it!!! But my children will grow up and leave me–a mixed bag of feelings, here–and I will again have long hours to fill with… Sewing? Quilting? How about BOTH!!!

  639. Joann McLean | 22nd Mar 12

    Well, I am a sewer who quilts…or is that a quilter who sews???? LOL either way I already have your new book on my preorder list. I just purchased Fresh Vintage Sewing last week and I don’t know why I waited so long to get it because I LOVE everything in it…but I must admit I just adore the sewing projects and I just finished a few little eggs using some Strawberry Fields charms- they are adorable! Thanks so much for sharing your talent!

  640. folksmith | 22nd Mar 12

    Can’t wait to get the book. Love the front cover.

  641. Gale, Ky quilter | 22nd Mar 12

    I can’t wait to see both the quilting and sewing projects! You have the MOST beautiful fabric lines. They truly “speak” to me. I voted for you, too. Good luck!

  642. reckdavis@suddenlink.net | 22nd Mar 12

    Quilting – what else??

  643. Paula Abay | 22nd Mar 12

    It’s hard to choose because I enjoy both. But if I must choose,then it will be quilting. The cover is beautiful. Can’t wait to see the inside and make a few!

  644. Wendy Forbes | 22nd Mar 12

    Do I really have to pick, quilting I guess but then you take me to the inspiration zone with so much with more than just that. So I just can’t wait for the book release in Australia. Wendy

  645. Texas Quilter | 22nd Mar 12

    Texas Quilter “Quilting – what else??”

  653. Linda | 22nd Mar 12

  655. Katie W. | 22nd Mar 12

  656. Janet | 22nd Mar 12

    Mostly quilting, but interested in the sewing as well. Thanks for the opportunity!

  657. holli | 22nd Mar 12

    Love that it’s BOTH! I don’t think I could pick one or the other. Too many things call to me.

  658. Jordan Durbin | 22nd Mar 12

    um, anything I can make with Fig Tree Fabric is what I’m most excited about. I’ve made some lovely quilts with it, but also some pretty fabulous little girl dresses.

  659. Denise | 22nd Mar 12

    Joanna,
    I love all your fabric and quilt patterns. I have collected alot of your patterns and fabrics and kits. I would love to win California Girl since I am one! I havn’t sewed any sewing projects yet unless you count pin cushions. You have made me love, love quilting with all your amazing color choices.
    Thanks,
    Denise

  660. Pam | 22nd Mar 12

    Joanna, I like to do both, as it breaks up a long quilt project, and I always have more than one project going. I never cared for orange/peach colors until I started visiting your blog and saw how well they go with other colors I like.

  661. brenda | 22nd Mar 12

    i can’t decide, i like both quilting and sewing. so the book is a win win for me on both ends. Thanks for always producing amazing products.

  662. Biggi | 22nd Mar 12

    Actually, looking forward to both. I always use my quilting scraps to sew something small to give as gifts. Can’t wait to buy the book:)

  663. Nancy D. | 22nd Mar 12

    Both really, although I do enjoy piecing the tops more than the actual quilting portion of the projects. thanks for sharing!

  664. Kate | 22nd Mar 12

    I LOVE quilting ๐Ÿ™‚

  668. Carmela Nunes | 22nd Mar 12

    It’s hard to pick…ivebeen sewing what seems my whole life. I just started quilting and I am really hooked. My first was actually full/queen size and my stash is really starting to grow.

  669. Diana | 22nd Mar 12

    I’m just looking forward to being inspired! I do both, but more sewing than quilting, so if the California bundle lands on my doorstep, I will be looking for a great pattern!

  670. Rachelle Burleson | 22nd Mar 12
