Thank you’s & Giveaways

Hello everyone,
I just wanted to thank you for all of your gracious and generous comments & the unbelievable amounts of emails we have been getting from you since the APQ article came out [for those of you who are hearing about this for the first time, see post below for more info]. Thank you so much for all the well wishes. I am daily humbled & blessed by your stories, your inspirations and your encouragements. I can say with all honesty that I am a designer because of wonderful women [& a few good men :-)] like you. Thank you.

I would also like to ask that if you have placed an order with us this week, that you give us a bit of “leeway” as we have been a bit understaffed to meet all of the demand these days….

In honor of all of this wonderful “hubbub” we are going to have a “Dandelion Wishes” kit giveaway!! One kit will be given away at the end of this week to one lucky winner. If you have already ordered one and you are the winner, we will refund your money.
If you would like to add into your comment, a possible name for one of our new quilts…. something that sounds “fresh” and “vintage”; it will be a scrappy quilt made from Dandelion Girl fabric, cream & alot of little patches… If I use your name for the quilt pattern, I will send you the pattern for free. I know its kind of hard without seeing the quilt… but that’s all I can give you at the moment.

Talk to you soon.Dandelionwishesfinal1_2

About The Author



  1. Vickie E | 5th Feb 08

    Joanna, I bought the AQS mag just for your article! Loved it. Please enter me for the quilt kit.
    And a quilt name? How about “Sugar & Cream Pie”
    Your fabrics always remind me of old fashioned sugar and cream pie 🙂

  2. Cathi in Ireland | 5th Feb 08

    Oooh…I feel like I’m back in France listening to your blog ambiance music! I have several of your patterns and just thought I’d delurk to enter your giveaway!

    I can’t get the magazine or the fabrics easy here in Ireland, but love them anyway! If I wasn’t such a frugal quilter with a big stash of scraps already, I’d buy them all up!! Fabric here is insanely expensive, but I think some charm squares might be within budget!!

    For the new quilt name, how “Katy’s Little Dandelion Patch” (I’d name it after my two little Irish girls, but their names are hard to pronounce: Aine (onya) and Aisling (ashling)

    I recently bought your houses book and have to say I really love the patterns in it!

  3. Priscilla Campbell | 5th Feb 08

    Joanna- I loved the AQS article and your lovely house- (as much as I could see)- Your new line is great- and I think of Ginger Peaches or Ginger and Cream – So that is my suggestion- Please keep up the great work- Priscilla

  4. Libby | 5th Feb 08

    Hey Joanna! I’m going with my first thought “Patchwork Dreams” I dream about quilts! Have a Great Day!! Libby

  5. Sheila Holland | 5th Feb 08

    How about “Creme Fraiche” for a name? Love your blog, website and most of all – your talent!

  6. Cory | 5th Feb 08

    Joanna, What about Dandelion Meadows? When I read your description of the fabric, I can see the little girl running through a Dandelion Meadow. Good luck with picking a new name. Take care and God bless, Cory

  7. Nancy | 5th Feb 08

    Please enter me into your give-away. I love all of your quilts/patterns.

    New quilt name? My Grandma’s Kitchen…

    My grandma’s kitchen was always a warm snuggly place filled with good things.

  8. Thimbleanna | 5th Feb 08

    I’m throwing out Prairie Flowers ’cause nothing else comes to mind! 😉

  9. Carole Prevost-Meier | 5th Feb 08

    I can honestly say that I am up to date on both articles. Lovely! I love the dandelion quilt! The other quilt in the Australian magazine is sweet! I see that you enjoy what I would call French folk music; music that is played in what we call Boite a Chanson in Quebec. If you are interested in a more contemporary artits, from Quebec, I think you would enjoy Harmonium’s first album. As for a quilt title, perhaps a French one would suit it! Champs des fleurs! Count me in for the draw! That is so generous of you! Thank you!

  10. Kathy Vetter | 5th Feb 08

    The article and photos in AP&Q were wonderful!! I like “Dreaming of Dandelions” as that is what I have been doing since seeing your quilt in the magazine.

    Love scrap quilts and the fact that your different fabric lines coordinate with each other.

    Please enter me in your kit giveaway.

    Keep up the fantastic work!


  11. Pat | 5th Feb 08

  12. Sequana | 5th Feb 08

    I just love your fabrics, but then, who wouldn’t?

    “Sassy Sixties” is my name suggestion. Or if the 60’s are not vintage enuf, “Flirty Fifties.”

  13. Carolyn | 5th Feb 08

    I never was very good at naming quilts, mine are usually “Fall Quilt” or some such thing! “Dandelion Daydreams” is what came to mind. Please enter me in your contest…it’s so nice of you to do this!

  14. Rae | 5th Feb 08

    I came straight to my computer to look up your site after reading about your designs in APQ… was inspired by your lovely and inviting setting.

    Ahh…fresh and vintage, yep, need to make myself one.

  20. Bobbi | 5th Feb 08

    Beautiful quilt!

  21. Heidi Miso | 5th Feb 08

    Happy Mardi Gras! My suggestion for a name is “Arielle’s Playground”

  22. Helen | 5th Feb 08

    When I think of dandelions I think of our puppy napping outside in the grass (last summer before the rains hit) so my quilt name suggestion is Daisy’s Dandelion Dreams.

  23. Amy | 5th Feb 08

    Love all your work! I check your blog daily for inspiration. Keep up the great work! How about “Daisy Chain” for the new pattern?–Amy

  24. Samantha | 5th Feb 08

  25. Kari | 5th Feb 08

    How about Sunny Patch or Lemonade Stand. I tried to imagine where you’d find a Dandelion Girl!

  26. Jean-o | 5th Feb 08

    So nice of you to let your readers be involved like this. When I think of Dandelions I always think of when they go to seed and we would blow on them and make wishes… so my suggestion is Dandelion Wishes. Have fun with reading all the ideas! Jean-o

  27. Jean-o | 5th Feb 08

    So nice of you to let your readers be involved like this. When I think of Dandelions I always think of when they go to seed and we would blow on them and make wishes… so my suggestion is Dandelion Wishes. Have fun with reading all the ideas! I did have another thought, and it was about Roses… Rose Water Vinegrette but I’m not sure if that would even go with the fabric. Again, have fun. I’m not going to hold my breath… take care. Jean-o

  28. Pam fr NY | 5th Feb 08

    Great article!!!! Love your patterns & designs… let’s see a great name would be:
    summer meadows or peaches & cream. Thanks for bringing such beautiful things.

  29. Linda | 5th Feb 08

    When I was a little girl we used to call those seeds that you blow off the dandelions fairies, so my suggestion would be Dandelion Fairy, or fairies. Gorgeous quilt in the mag, need to get myself a copy straight away.

  30. Linda | 5th Feb 08

    Well I was too quick hitting the post button. My other suggestion would be Dandelion Wishes.

  73. Ina | 6th Feb 08

    Hi Joanna, the article and photos were beautiful!

    Lots of good suggestions for the next quilt name. My entry is: “Summertime Hopscotch” for 2 reasons.

    1) lots of little squares remind me of drawing hopscotch squares with chalk in front of my house and

    2) hopscotch is definitely “vintage”. You just don’t see kids playing it anymore. 🙁

  85. Carolyn Cady | 6th Feb 08

    The magazine article about you is well-deserved. Keep up that energy! I’ll have to give a name a bit more thought because the names I had in mind have been used, or are close. Excellent choices for you to choose from; it will be a challenge. Of course, we all want to win!

  86. Sharon Lagace | 6th Feb 08

    I really enjoy your emailed Newsletters.

    “Afternoon Porch Peaches”
    “Peach Swing”

  87. Karen | 6th Feb 08

    I fell in love with your patterns and fabric after I discovered you in my latest APQ magazine. I ordered all your issues of Vintage, two patterns and was lucky enough to get the Dandelion Wishes Kit ordered before you sold out!
    What color of cream paint and what brand is it you use? TIA

  88. Diane Gill | 6th Feb 08

    My suggestions: “Dreamy Days”,”Milky Way” or “Vintage Dreams”. I love your fabric. I have collected quite a stash, but I hate to cut it!

  89. Jenny Fish | 6th Feb 08

    Love Love Loved your article! I am a fan of your style. My LQS just put one of your lines on sale (along with a bunch of other Moda lines) and I stocked up. Can’t wait to use them! Okay, as for pattern names. I am going to try to include some French. I hope it is correct, I don’t speak the language! Forgive me if I post something off colored, I am not trying to offend, just be creative.

    Figgy Pudding (sorry couldn’t resist!)
    Moulin Rouge
    Vintage Soire
    Buttercup Boutique
    Vintage Revue
    Nouveau Histoire
    French Vintage

    Oh my, I could go on! It seems like since you have drawn so much inspiration from you visit to France, you should reflect that in a quilt pattern or really fabric line(like folklorique). Keep up the great work. You inspire me!

  90. Barbara | 6th Feb 08

    just a thought – cream & crumpets
    love the fabrics and the quilts !

    Patches and Cream
    Peach Cobbler
    Dandelion Tea

    Lots of good names to choose from! Glad I get to read them all….I think they’re all good!

  94. Becky S. | 6th Feb 08

    I love the APQ article and the Dandelion
    Wishes quilt.I can’t wait to make it.
    Sorry, I can’t think of any clever quilt names right now.

  95. Kim | 6th Feb 08

    How about “Dandelion Daydreams”?

  96. joanna | 6th Feb 08

    karen [& the others who have emailed me about what kind of cream paint I use in my home]-
    My husband really wasn’t kidding when he said that we had 30 quarts of different creams in the garage! Each of the rooms in our home uses a different cream paint because i found that depending on the size & light exposure or each room, the colors looked vastly different. So I can’t even begin to recommend a color or a brand. I really do recommend that trial & error is the best way to figure out what kind of cream will work in your room. I do know that Lyndhurst Cream was one of my favorites in a few rooms but I don’t remember the brand of that particular one!
    happy “cream” hunting…

  97. Darlene | 6th Feb 08

    I thought of another one! 🙂

    Frothy Dandelion Figs

  98. Rhonda | 6th Feb 08

    Based on the colors and prints…these names came to mind:
    Untouched Meadows
    Deep in the Heart of Summers
    Fluttering Dandelions
    Charmed Dandelions

    I thought of a name for a next quilt:

    Having you in APQ is enough to make me subscribe again.

    Compliments of Henry Ward Beecher, I suggest “Golden Kisses” or “Cheeks of the Meadow” for the pattern name.

  112. Robin | 8th Feb 08

    I just loved reading your article in APQ. Love your quilts.

  113. Janice | 8th Feb 08

  115. Angela | 8th Feb 08

    Hmmn…don’t know if it’s already been suggested but the parameters (dandelion fabric, creams and vintage) made me think of blowing dandelion seeds and watching them float away — so, “Dandelion Wishes” is my suggestion. Of course, doing that used to drive my father nuts — so, maybe not :0).

  116. Patti Cardona | 8th Feb 08

    What about Summer Field Peaches?

    What fun! May I suggest: An American in Paris,French Bistro, A Day in Provonce, Creme Fresh, Milk and cookies, Madeleines, Pastry Creme. I really have enjoyed your patterns. I have just loved your blog page. I have shared it with alot of friends.

  121. Lorraine | 8th Feb 08

    Here goes with my suggestion …Petite Creme Brulee . Happens to be my favourite dessert 🙂

  122. Ina | 8th Feb 08

    Thought of a variation on my suggestion. If it is a patchwork quilt made with 5″ charms the quilt could be called “Hopscotch Charms”.

    As little girls, we use to use our charm bracelets to toss onto the hopscotch. That’s what made me think of Hopscotch Charms. 🙂

  123. Barbara France | 8th Feb 08

    I loved the magazine article and your ideas for making original quilts.
    Dandelion Days is my quilt name suggestion.
    Thanks for all the inspiration

  128. Paulette in WV | 9th Feb 08

    How about Blowing Dandelion Seeds?

  129. Sheila Holland | 9th Feb 08

    I was finally able to find the mag and the article about you and your work and home was wonderful. About 200 names ago, I sent in “Creme Fraiche”, but I noticed no one was sending in any “Dew and dandelion” combos, so here goes:
    Dewdrops on the Dandelions
    Dew and Dandelions
    Summer Dew
    Dandelions and Dew
    Or maybe even just something like “Days of Dandelions”
    Whew. We are all really getting in to this name thing!

  130. Lonnie Drahos | 9th Feb 08

    When I saw your article in AQ, I fell in love with you, your ideas, and your patterns. Name your new quilt pattern, Peaches n’ Cream or Outdoor Wonders.

    Daisie Chain

    You have so many good ideas. Good luck.

    I have made mostly dark primitive quilts for the past few years, and then read the wonderful, insightful article on your process of designing and colors choices, I am absolutely taken with your Prairie Sweets, will be ordering that from you soon.
    A name, always hard to name a quilt even when it’s in front of you, but here goes;
    Fresh Cream

  138. Tina Dillon | 9th Feb 08

    How’s about Buttermilk Meadow or Buttercream Frosting?

    Thanks for all you do!
