, the Brilliant Beauties of Joy is an updated version of the "Joy" pattern that started the BeColourful Quilt company after the quilt won the Open European Quilt Championship in 2003.  After it won, everyone started asking "is there a pattern?" - and BeColourful was born. 

The quilt uses vibrant, sparkling colours that flow into each other, beautiful set off by the pieced checkerboard inset.  This quilt is undoubtedly an eye-catcher.  Kits will be available using the original Be Colourful palette of rainbow colours.

Skill Level:  Intermediate and above.

, the pretty Bright Star quilt will make a pretty wall hanging or table topper.

This pattern uses the centre of the Circle of Life pattern with a pretty curved spiked frame, set off by a black or white centre. Kits will be available in the original colours.

Skill Level:  Intermediate and above.
