Ellen’s Joy Quilt Pattern

$AUD 11.99

This pattern has a geometric design utilising a single unifying fabric in thin strips drawing the blocks together.

It is a simple pattern that is quick to make.



You can use similar fabrics in all blocks or use different fabrics in all blocks. The strips are the same fabrics in all blocks and can be a unifying colour, stripe, dot or something I haven’t thought of yet!

The cutting instructions are for a sample quilt size with two distinctive blocks, identified as Block 1 and Block 2 in this pattern.

The alternate quilt shows an plain colour choice using a stripe fabric as the unifying element. In this option different colours are used throughout the quilt.

Try it out with your colour choices—maybe even use the stash!

Have fun with it!
