    Heh Joni

    any chance you would be doing an angel of some sort – I mean stain glass.

    I find your work quite spiritual and like one other I also thought of Group of Seven which I find spiritual as well

    thank you Christine 🙂

      Christine, I do actually have an angel in progress. i have been working on the drawing for a while. The skater took years of back and forth until I was happy with her-hopefully the angel design will come together a little faster!

        Hi Joni

        RE: Stain Glass Angel inquiry

        Thanks for letting me know – that’s great.
        I will not wait ‘with baited breath’ as a truly inspired masterpiece is not of one’s own timing if you know what I mean. At least I believe artist expression, along with basic raw talent, comes from the soul and is fed by the spirit, don’t you know.
        In the meantime, enjoy the journey and the wonderful process as I’m sure when it does come to full bloom, it’ll will be nothing short or awesome.
        Blessings, Christine 🙂

    I’ve seen (and loved) your work at Quilting Quarters and then we were given the contest info at Kanata Quilt Guild- you have a new follower:)

      Thanks Dianne, you are in the draw!

    Hi Joni. Just a reminder from Saturday to put me in for the draw as well as getting you to put aside a Killarney Kit. Thanks

    • Joni March 9, 2014 at 10:39 pm Permalink

      Thanks for the reminder! You are in the draw and I will put a kit aside. Thanks also for the FB like 🙂

    It was great meeting you in Almonte at Sue’s. I purchased two of your stained glass patterns and am looking forward to learning a new technique. Thanks for the advice that you gave me.

      Diana, I love meeting and talking with fellow quilters. have fun with the patterns!

    Great meeting you the other day. Your kits are so interesting and will be great looking in most decors. So nice to see them in one of our local quilt shops the Quilting Quarters in Almonte. We are so lucky that you are local and can talk with you, magazines are interesting and good to get new ideas from but it is great to able talk to the designer face to face and hear stories on how you get your inspirations. We are lucky. Keep up the great work!

    • Joni March 2, 2014 at 6:45 pm Permalink

      Nice meeting you too! I love to chat with fellow quilters and listen to their ideas. It’s also great fun to see their projects come along. Happy Quilting!

    I love your designs, some remind me of the group of seven type paintings. I would love to win your Artisan Spirit shimmer contest. Northcott fabrics being the only Canadian fabrics are a real favorite.

    • Joni February 21, 2014 at 1:16 pm Permalink

      Thank you Mary, you are in! I do love the Northcott fabrics-Stonehenge is awesome too. The fall group of patterns will be featuring new Stonehenge (drafts are in my blog). Thanks again.

    Hello Joni – I just discovered your patterns through Thimble and Things’ Newsletter. I will look forward to seeing your cottage country patterns at Sue’s store.

    And if, by chance, I won the ‘My Favorite Birch’ Kit, I would be delighted. I keeping thinking that I should plant a birch tree in memory of my father. The birch was his favorite tree. Piecing/quilting a birch tree would be a great alternative.

      Thank you Halina! The birch tree in the quilt sits in my front yard and has been through ice storms, pests and lots of other trials but still keeps on. It’s about 40 years old which is getting old for a birch so I made the design to show where it would like to be living in a nice pastoral setting!
      You are in the draw and I look forward to meeting you.

    Hi Joni

    I love your new pattern. Actually I like all your patterns. You have obviously found your niche. I noticed the above ad in an American Magazine – congratulations!


    • Joni February 14, 2014 at 7:53 pm Permalink

      Thanks Beth! I love the Shop Hop pattern you have designed for the summer shop hop in the Ottawa area this august-looking forward to making it

    Hi Joni, Having seen your beautiful quilts at Sues on Saturday I had to check out the website (love all the pictures of the quilts and your students too)and of course I would love to win one of the kits!! The new fabric line looks lovely and perfect for landscapes and stained glass which are two of the things I have enjoyed doing in the past and if I won a kit would love to get doing one again!!
    Congratulations on your latest endeavours and I am sure we will see lots more of your creations in the magazines and shows. I will suggest your name for a trunk show and talk about creating patterns to the Richmond guild as I am sure we would all enjoy hearing of your experiences!
    Alison Tranter,
    Richmond, ONT
