Joanne was an extremely talented quilter. She was a perfectionist who devoted herself to one project at a time, completing beautiful quilts with laser-like focus and precision. She had a great eye for color and she quilted all of her quilts on her Bernina and her Juki sewing machines. We will all miss her very much. She shared her love of quilting with her great niece Emma. We always had so much fun when Joanne would bring Emma to our meetings.
Here are some of Joanne's beautiful quilts that have graced my blog.

|This was the year that Emma volunteered Auntie Joanne to make 9 quilts for Emma to give as Christmas gifts to her cousins. Joanne finished them all and then taught Emma to sew!|
If you see some extra puffy clouds in the sky, it is Joanne doing trapunto and machine quilting in heaven.
Thanks for visiting.
