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 (affiliate link)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!
