I've been making things as long as I can remember, thanks to my Mom who is a great seamstress! My favorite has been quilting for 25 years now and now that my husband and I are empty nesters I am enjoying the opportunity to expand my expertise and creativity in this art. Pattern writing is a new outlet for me and I am enjoying sharing my creations. I especially love making patterns that are encouraging for beginner quilters - I try to make sure my directions are clear and well illustrated to take the frustration out of quilting and make it a joyful process!
Thanks so much for looking at my patterns!
Jolie is french for pretty - the perfect description for this lovely little wallhanging. Perfect to showcase a large print - the pieced blocks make a statement without overwhelming the feature fabric you choose for the alternate blocks. I couldn't resist a Paris themed fabric, but there are so many options, you will want to make more than one of these!
My pattern includes illustrations and an easy sew and flip technique to make creating accurate blocks simple and fun. Black and white fabrics look great in this design as do a variety of other colors and prints. Just pick a large print that you like and choose the colors that work with it.
