Welcome to Pure Joy Patterns (Pure Joy Designs). Thats me, Sharon McCurdy, in the photo. I have been creating patterns for a long time, though not as a business. Years ago, I would make clothing using my own designs. Back in those days, I did a lot of machine appliqué, which I still love today.
But when I was introduced to quilting, my world changed. I found myself creating patterns and samples for the quilt shop where I was working. Thats when my love of designing and writing (I wrote software manuals as a technical writer), finally came together and the rest, I guess you could say, is history.
Everyone always asks where I came up with the name Pure Joy Designs. Well, my mother's name was Joye. Years ago, my sister and her husband (owners of Wire Works Custom Jewelry) made Mom a necklace that read 100% Pure Joye. I always loved the necklace and decided to use the concept as my company name. Additionally, Pure Joy is a daily reminder of Mom, who passed away in 2007.
Wholesale inquires welcome.

I was asked about doing a similar quilt pattern for someone. I thought the pattern was an excellent opportunity to use a Jelly Roll. I happen to love the traditional colors in this one. Although simple in appearance, it has been received very well. I have already had a number of offers to purchase my quilt. I never do though, so I have them for shows.
This pattern shows two differnet layout options. 62" x 86" or 75" x 75"
