Welcome to our new home!

Welcome to our new home my friends! This is the first official post from the new blog platform. What do you guys think? Everything from the old blog has been transferred over as if we never even left so you will still be able to access everything that we have written about since we started. But this new blog has so much more info and its all neatly organized for you in new categories and links and all kinds of fun things. In the next couple of days I will give you guys a tour of all the fun new features but for now please take a look around and tell me what you think, what you like and what you would like to see and hear about here in my posts. I am going to try to get back to a better blogging schedule so knowing what you guys are most interested in, would be great to know as I plan posts!

Talk to you guys soon!

    Congratulations on your new website! I love the “Resources” section! I always like seeing what products and notions other people are enjoying–and usually add a few to my wish list! I’d love to see a “Quilt Along”…maybe Farm Cottage or Thistles?

    Love your new look – but of course I loved the “old” look – love anything fig tree! You have a very conversational style in sharing your thoughts and also projects you are interested in or working on. Thanks for “taking us along” as you sew so we can learn your techniques, also seeing new things you are working on in your studio and new ideas, inspirations you may have. We love you being you = fresh, simple, conversational, inspirational, creative, colorful, classic. It would be interesting to hear stories or background on a project or particular fabric collection, or things that inspire you. We also love sewing along with you. One of my favorite videos of all time is where you showed us how to appliquĂ© a heart – it is like a one-on-one sewing lesson. I loved it so much I learned that technique and made my granddaughter a beautiful quilt with lots of appliquĂ©d flowers and leaves on branches with a little girl swinging in the tree – it is her “nesting quilt”. Thanks for sharing your love of these things with us so we can enjoy and create beautiful things!

    Love the new blog Joanna! Excited to see you posting more often especially about your new releases The only item I would consider changing is any text written in turquoise. It is hard to read. Hope this is helpful information.

    Vintage quilts, ceramic chicks and benches were things that you mentioned. Vintage quilts are a favorite of mine too. Love your new book and fabrics. They have that vintage feel.
