2012 QDS OFFICIAL LOGO4 QDS™ Challenge 2 Designer: Joy Tallman

Joy Tallman QDS™ Challenge 2 Designer: Joy Tallman“I started designing in my mind the minute I opened the package of fabric. Oh what fun, whimsical fabric and my favorite a black print.

Normally, I start with the design and have a direction to go in. But with this competition, starting with such cute fabric is good too. I hung the fabric on my design wall and “lived” with it until I received the guidelines. My design is based on a round robin quilt I did in 2007. After that experience, I love working with a medallion design.

The Clover iron you sent me….AWESOME! How did I work without one. The Clover rotary cutter is handy also.

My coworkers and friends have been so supportive. The guys I work with have now become quilt critics and as I worked on my design “helped” as I went. Who knew they had a creative side. I do feel that I am blessed being able to continue in the contest. Thank you sooo much.”
