JOY is a quilted wall hanging pattern which uses both sides of one focus fabric on a wintery background.
Joy: cheer, glee, gladness, festivity, jubilance, exultation
This #usebothsides pattern was one of my first designs. See more than 40 patterns now in my Etsy Shop: CreativeBeeStudios.
See Christmas Quilts in July for a smaller quilted wall hanging pattern made with broderie perse and one focus fabric!
There are many, MANY Christmas fabrics which would make a great JOY quilted wall hanging.
You can choose modern circles, snowflakes, poinsettias, cookie cutters, etc. Each gives a different feel to this Christmas tree wall hanging. The trick is to find a focus fabric you love whose reverse side sparkles -but with a lesser value.
I happened to find one that gives a vintage flair to the quilt. These vintage glass ornaments sparkle on both sides of the Hoffman Digital Spectrum fabric called All Aglow Christmas.
Now take a look at this focus fabric!
Make this JOY with Hoffman’s Supernova Seasons panel!
This version features a lighter, snowy background. You’ll see cardinals on a lighted wire and little red trucks. Both accent strips are reversed to let the focus fabric shine.
Shuffle through your Christmas stash and make up some JOY to make the Christmas season bright!
Give a little JOY this Christmas season!
