The pattern is perfect for beginners who want to practice the technique ‘foundation paper piecing’. I photographed each sewing step and explained them in detail. You get the fabric requirements for a lap size quilt 60″x 60″ and for a queen size quilt 100″x 100″.
You have ideally finished one or two quilting projects before and know how to baste, quilt and bind a quilt.
I have included a description about how to finish a quilt to the pattern and if you are uncertain about the binding, download my free tutorial about how to finish a binding the easy way here
MY INSPIRATION TO DESIGN THE PATTERN JOY
JOY is the story about my move from London to Brisbane together with my husband and my 4 year old son. Moving comes always with a lot of work, uncertainty and big emotions. And so was our move. We had obstacles to overcome to get where we are now. Life is constant change, we get challenges thrown at us all the time and I am a strong believer that taking on the difficult times rather than avoiding them leads to a fulfilled life and helps changing the perspective when needed. During my first months in Brisbane I had to think a lot about my childhood, friends and my family back in Europe, it changed my perspective on many levels. My childhood passion for sketching shapes and my love for geometry came into my mind and only then I realised that what I did back then helps me with my work today. Who would have thought?! New design ideas usually come at night when I am in bed and that’s how JOY started as well.
