Homemade Mask Summit - June 2020

After over 65 interviews on the Just Wanna Quilt podcast,  we held a two-day summit to put it all together.  We also made an infographic!

The Green Wave Project

What happens when two bolts of fabric are donated to the Just Wanna Quilt project?  We make lots and lots of quilts. One Kaffe Fassett, and the other Tula Pink, the Quilting Army made amazing things.

Jen Kingwell's Gypsy Wife Sew Along with Gigi Baay and Corrie Dutton

So a bunch of our Quilting Army members wanted to do the Gypsy Wife quilt.  It's like a thing. So, we recruited Gigi Baay to lead us, and Corrie to keep us organized.  We did a bunch of videos, and while the SAL is officially concluding, many of us (many) are still working on it.  So, visit this page, and join our special Just Wanna Quilt Gypsy Wife Sew Along.
