Meet Me In St Louis


Q U I L T   M A R K E T!

I could not resist giving it all I’ve got for the upcoming

2017 Spring

International Quilt Market

this year since it is in my home state. And it’s the first time since I’ve been designing fabric.

May 19 – 21

So, we are taking full advantage of the no travel by bringing my scoop to nuts display furnishings along with all the usual Joy Studio trimmings. Fun but tiresome.

We will post a full quilt market report after but here’s a tiny preview!

So, have you guessed the theme of our new fabric collection? I hope it is your cup of tea!

btw – Close up face is a large patch from our “Queen of We’en” collection.

Gram’s cream & sugar made it into the display, and on the fabric. I love when that happens!

& an antique shoe cushion!

Where (this) Woman Creates

It’s True!

Where Women Create paid our Joy Studio(s) a visit!

And you can see the feature in the Winter Issue,

on news stands Nov.1, 2015.



In addition it is my pleasure to be doing a signing

with the magazine’s creator and editor in chief,

Jo Packham!


the International Quilt Market in Houston on Saturday.


Last year at Fall Quilt Market I met the very gracious Jo, at the Sew Scary fabric debut and soon after we began the process. Another dream goal, being realized, hard to believe. The upcoming visit understandably, thrust us into high gear sprucing up and organizing both work spaces as you have seen (here) over the past months. A tall order after only just moving into to the new space last August however, quite rewarding and needed.

Re-creating the inspirational areas was perfect (God’s?) timing!



I hope you will pick up a copy


that you will enjoy reading our story.





Almost, like a fairy tale ending?


Or a new chapter.
