Jump For Joy! – a paper pieced quilt block pattern

jump for joy left and rightJump For Joy! is a terrific design for those unusual fabrics — batiks, ethnics, jazzy geometrics, or vintage ’50’s and ’60’s prints. Black will often make the perfect accent color. Try using multiple prints within the figure or within the background. Maybe you’ll even find a fabric with faces just the right size to fussy cut.

 Choose either a square block (full pattern) or rectangle (trim off the 1″ side pieces along the vertical dashed lines). Click here for the mirror image block

Just a few fun layout ideas, below, for using Jump For Joy!  Note that for many of these designs, you’ll need both right and left facing block designs.
