Jolie in Foresta/Rosewood Fusions fabrics

Jolie in Foresta/Rosewood Fusions fabrics

Flash back to when this quilt was made - It's November 2020. It's been...a weird year. My last pattern release was what - March? April? I spent most of this year like you all - glued to the news and stuck at home when I wasn't working. Pregnant with our second daughter. Sewing a bajillion masks. However, Jolie was an itch that just had to be scratched and a very welcome stress reliever.




I had the design finished in for months and after three on-point patterns in a row I knew my next one would need to be a simple, fast, scrappy sew. Once I got started, the blocks were all sewn in a day! I think my favorite part of this pattern is the minimal planning required at the start. I'm sure everyone can relate to just wanting to sew something and not think too much about it right?

Those tiny toddler feet are three years bigger now!



Hilariously, when I photographed and blogged this quilt for publishing, I thought I had at least two more weeks of an inside baby. Turns out she was born the next day! So that's a fun memory I'll always have with this quilt.

The pattern has instructions for several different precut options - I used fat quarters to make this version.




I have a zillion versions of Jolie in my head. This one used a combination bundle of Art Gallery Fabric's Rosewood Fusion and Foresta Fusion with a few of my own stash thrown in. The background is a Moda Bella solid in Zen Gray - one of my favorite light, warm grays that I've used a few times now.



I often reach for this pattern when I want to gift a baby quilt. It's a cute size, quick to make, and I can use fabric off my shelf or my scrap bin. There's several other versions posted on the Project Blog!



Quilted by Nicole of KwiltIt! in a new-to-me panto called Ginger Snap with a dark gray minky backing. I love how loopy quilting looks on minky! This quilt has been a staple on our couch and that newborn is now three - it's still just as snuggly as the day I finished it.
