Joanna Figueroa the splendid sampler block 50

Joanna’s Favorite Quote is  Always remember that quilting is meant to be an art and its meant to be a joyful process. I think so much of the time we focus too much on whether or not our points are perfect or all of our seams are nested. I don’t really think that’s what its meant to be all about. Don’t get me wrong… there are times when the perfect point is really important and if its off, its worth to rip out. But there are a lot of other times when its just not. Always remember why you are quilting and enjoy the process!”

I have followed Joanna’s work for years and used her fabrics many times. I love how she puts things together her her fresh Figtree Style!

Now that we are both Moda Designers we have gotten to know each other and always have fun catching up in person at the shows twice a year.


Joanna is the designer of the Charity Quilt along at the Fat Quarter shop this year. Her designs and fabrics make this a stunning quilt to recreate.  Her original quilt will be auctioned off and I’m making one that will also be auctioned.
