Lotsa bolts
Winner coming up!


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....




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!




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. Thanks for the giveaway!

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

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

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!

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!

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

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

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.

Looking forward to the quilting portion.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

Both! But quilting a little more than sewing! :)

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

Quilting without a doubt.

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. :)

Can't wait to hear more about your new book!! Congratulations! :)

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.

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.

Yay !! Quilting mostly -- but sewing too !!

How exciting -- Congratulations!


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

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

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

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!

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!!


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!

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

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

Quilting! thanks for the giveaway.

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

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

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.

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!

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!

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 :-)

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

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

definitely quilting! :)

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. :)

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

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