About the Author: Johanna Wilson
Johanna Wilson began quilting in 1984 during a winter storm on the Minnesota prairie. Housebound, she picked up an old quilt top that a friend had passed on to her, and the rest is quilting history. Through the years, Johanna has created projects for numerous patterns and books, designed fabrics, and taught all over the country. Teaching is one of her great loves, and she delights in hearing that her students are passing on their love of quilting to others. For six years, Johanna hosted an annual quilt retreat in Minnesota that drew quilters from all over the United States and Canada. Beginning and expert quilters alike completed a sampler quilt and shared their love of quilting. The group continues to meet each summer, now hosted by one of Johanna’s former students. A frequent contributor to The Quilter and Fabric Trends magazines, Garden Medley Quilts was Johanna’s first book published by All American Crafts.
