New Quilt Pattern- Jolly

I have a new pattern listed in my shop today! It's called Jolly and can be made with fat quarters and fat eighths, or yardage from "the stash".

One of my favorite traditional quilt blocks is called "Sister's Choice" (the pointy one). It has been used in countless quilts in many different variations over the years, and with good reason. It's so fun! If what I've read about it is correct, Sister's Choice was named around 1890 by the Ladies' Art Company, a St. Louis pattern house. The jaunty little nine patches are my favorite part of this variation!

I love quilts where you chop up fat quarters and then get to mix and match prints into piles for blocks, it's one of my favorite parts of the quilting process. I pieced this one with prints from my stash, and had it quilted by Emilee Hathaway with simple straight lines. Thanks again Emilee!

The border, binding, and backing are all from Bonnie and Camille's line Handmade. When I started the quilt it hadn't been released yet, but turned out to be absolutely perfect for this Christmasy project.

Mine is made up in Christmas colors, but I think other colorways would be fun too, like rainbow (my latest obsession), or a 4th of July version! Here it is made up in Bonnie and Camille's older line "Daysail". Do you have a fat quarter bundle of that lying around waiting for a purpose in life? :)

For the next 48 hours I'm having a 20% off sale to celebrate Woodberry Way's 1st birthday! Just check out with the code BIRTHDAY. There's also another new pattern in the shop which I'll post about later, so stay tuned! Thanks for stopping by :)
