Welcome! We are multi-faceted. We began as a research podcast by Dr. Townsend Gard at Tulane University Law School.
We've grown into a community about quilting, crafting, entrepreneurship and intellectual property.

Featured Giveaway Sponsors
AccuQuilt has been a great partner, and their work during the Mask crisis was heroic. They created dies for masks, with all of the proceeds going to No Kid Hungry/Share Our Strength. They raised $100,000! From us purchasing their dies to help our communities. Amazing. And they are donating an AccuQuilt Go for our Thank You giveaway.
Listen to to the podcast with AccuQuilt.
We've been working with the folks at Grace for a number of years now. Quilting Army Krewe (that's us) became an official dealer in 2020. We love not only their longarms but their new thread, Finesse, especially. They have donated thread and other goodies for our giveaway. Now, if we could just get a donation of that Q21 pro!
Quilting Army Krewe is donating to Copyright Camp admissions (worth $125 each) and 2 paper copies of Just Wanna Trqdemark (each work $75 each)
Scott Fortunoff and Jaftex have been so supportive, of us, and so many. We watched as they added FreeSpirit to their fabric companies. We have pretty fabric to give away, as part of a tin of goodies.
We all longed for the day when we were making quilts again. The Warm Company is our go-to batting, and now that it is back in Joann Fabrics, we are thrilled. Listen to our interviews here and here.
Havel's has been a good friend to Just Wanna Quilt for a number of years. Their rotary cutter is my all-time favorite. And every time we have an event, all of our cutting supplies are stolen (Yep, we're ok with that!). And their scissors...perfect. Listen to our podcast with Havel's.
Fabrics, patterns, and books. What's cool about Christa's patterns is that she includes instructions on the quilting too. And, she has lots of sew alongs, and course she also designs fabric, available both online and at your LQS! Listen to Christa's. podcast here and here. She's donated paper patterns for us, which is very lovely.
The company behind the mondo bag (that we all love), they got into the mask making too! Mattie, we love you and all that you do.
Our own Christy Andrews has published "One Noisy Streetcar" which features counting and adorable quilts. We worked with her on the copyright questions, and we are so proud of her work.
And more coming soon!
This is just a preview.
We so love Leah Day, and we thank her for donating to our Thank You Sewist giveaway as well. Thanks! Let's all get out our walking foots and start to quilt!
