Simply Joyful

image

This is the most recent quilt I have designed for Robert Kaufman fabrics. It is 56 inches square.

It uses fabrics from the Harlequin collection designed by Debra Lunn and Michael Mrowka.

When I get a collection of fabrics I let them tell me what they want me to do.

This is a simple quilt to construct but the fabric arrangement is what makes it work. I did try some other arrangements and the quilt just died.

The fabrics will be available sometime after quilt market in your local quilt shops.

The pattern will be available from Robert Kaufman.

This would be easy enough for a beginning quilter and also fun for a more experienced quilter.

Some of you may wonder why I am creating quilts with commercial fabrics. When they ask me to create a quilt I will only do it if I am inspired by the fabric.

The fabrics Michael and Debra create are the most exciting fabrics I have seen in a long long time. They WORK!

It is definitely joyful and I love fabric that does the work for you. Sometimes we all need to celebrate well designed fabric like this.

A well-named quilt. I love the look of these fabrics (but it will probably be months and months before they reach the UK!)

Great job. I think you've designed something that a lot of people will want to make. Who cares if it is commercial or art quilt... great thing is we get to create stuff.
