The wait is over - I've teased you enough - introducing Joy


Joy quilt by QuiltFabrication




my creation for the Making Connections Blog Hop.



Composed of quick and easy half square triangles, the design is perfect to showcase the quilting from the Making Connections - A Free Motion Quilting Workbook by Dorie Hruska.



Making Connections - A Free Motion Quilting Workbook

With so many designs to choose from, I decided to keep it light and airy for this quilt - and the effect has paid off! Ready to see more? Then here we go!

Just looking at these pictures makes me ohh and ahh - and I own the quilt! Really - anything is possible with the designs in this book.
