Firsts

 

First day of the week, in the first month of the year, in the new decade

&

my first sew along!

Hat Shop Sew Along

is scheduled to begin here, January 22.

So, if you’re joining us, I’ll need lots of help.

As some of you know, I am a watercolor artist, not a sewer. Please understand that my offering is appliqué design rather than expert stitching and/or quilt assembly. This is also, my first time making this quilt. Feel free to comment your questions, tips and critiques here or email to janet@greatjoystudio.com. I’ll do my best to address them all.

This project uses:

Atelier de Chapellerie fused appliqué pattern from Joy Studio and can be found in shops or here on our shop page,

Painters Palette

&

Couturiere Parisienne

fabrics from Riley Blake Designs.

Some of you have expressed difficulty locating Painters Palette fabrics so email me (address above) for the quilt shop list in your area.

Excited to get started!

Hello and a Happy New Year to all of YOU!

I’m running slightly behind already following so much holiday activity and art deadlines in January but,

I still thought there might be time for some fabric fun!?!!

How about another Valentine Post Card Exchange?

I really enjoyed seeing your amazing creativity from the first one, which you can see on Pinterest.

It’s a small project so you can stitch up quick and embellish (or not) any way you like, no challenge this time

however,

I do have Riley Blake Designs Paperdoll fabric panels and fat quarters to GIVEAWAY!!

How does a random drawing of the participants sound?

The winner will be drawn from delivered post cards.

All you have to do is sign up by sending me an email with your name and the address where you wish to receive your card.

I’ll match everyone to a partner and send you back the info.

• Email to janet@greatjoystudio.com

• Use any Riley Blake Designs fabric, although I’d love it if you used Paperdoll.

•Sew and send your cards to the partner we assign by February14, or sooner.

That’s it!

Merry, Merry!

H E L L O  T H E R E !

As you can see, I jumped from our Halloween Quilt Market booth straight to Christmas here on the blog. November and most of December I focused on new art, patterns and regular life. Time is still the number one creative schedule handicap. Can’t seam to get everything done.

However, I do want to take this time to post a sincere thank you for your support of the products, encouragement and following me with the likes and very kind comments throughout the past year . . . and, longer!!! It really feels great to know that we share a creative connection.

YOU keep me going!

Thank you makers and creators. 😉

And –

Wishing you the best of EVERYTHING in the new year!

“Paperdoll” fabric by J Wecker Frisch from Riley Blake Designs can be found in quilt shops.

The “Doll House” appliqué designs can be found at Missouri Star Quilt Co.
