Brilliant Beauties of Joy is the evolution of the original pattern “Joy,” the pattern that made the start of Be Colourful as a Pattern Company. In 2003, when Jacqueline had a burn out, she was working on a special design with lots of colors and the famous multi-sunflower fabric from Hoffman California. When the quilt was finished, her father insisted on it entering the Open European Quilt Championship, as he was sure that this quilt was so special and unique.
Finally, she agreed and sent the quilt to the OEQC organization. Guess what? She won the Color Trophy that year. And when the quilt was displayed there, people started to ask: “Is there a pattern available??” And this is where it all started!
The quilt has become slightly larger than the original and all the pre-printed foundation papers come with the pattern. It has a “Paint by number” technique for all the foundation points, the rainbow border and detailed fabric/cutting instructions. She made new drawings and made the quilt again with a black background as the original sunflower fabric was so hard to find.
Kits are available upon request.
