Modern Patchwork + Just Ask JoAnn

Posted on April 5th, by Amy in Magazine/Featured. 97 comments

I was so excited to pull my copy of Modern Patchwork from the mailbox yesterday!  (I even got an extra to giveaway to one of you – read on!) 

It’s full of home decor projects, bags, quilts and more – I had a couple of minutes to look through it, and can’t wait to make a few myself.  Here’s a peek at my clutch, and pillow cover that are both included.

They did such a great job with this magazine – I love all the photos, and the layout!  It’s available online and on newsstands now.


Over the course of a few months, and a number of emails, I shipped my iPad and computer case to JoAnn for a photo shoot!

Find my project in your Jo-Ann store next month!

I’m told these are available beginning this month in ALL JoAnn stores around the country!  That said the nearest store is 40 minutes away, and I haven’t had a chance to check it out.  If you see it at your store, let me know!  It is a FREE project sheet, and the tutorial is available here too, with lots of pictures.


To win a copy of Modern Patchwork, leave me a comment and I’ll select a winner on Monday, April 9.

Good Luck ~ Amy
