Introducing ‘Monsoon’

Hi there!

Well Spring seems to have snuck back into hibernation here, as Winter throws us its last hoorah!

Definitely sewing weather! And there has been lots of that happening at Just Jude Designs.

At the moment I’m making our post Easter class samples and Summer Workshop samples.  Plenty to keep me out of trouble!

But I wanted to show you my latest quilt – introducing Monsoon!


Monsoon Quilt


‘Monsoon’ is named after the collection of Makower fabrics it is made from (not the current weather conditions).  I fell in love with these tropical prints as soon as they were released – just look at those adorable cockatoos!

Now technically Monsoon isn’t a new pattern.  A couple of years ago I designed ‘Frost’ for a winter edition of Quilt Now magazine.  Can you see the resemblance?


Frost (Quilt Now Jan18)


Apart from the fabrics (& one less row in Monsoon) these quilts are made from identical blocks.  Don’t you just love how a complete change of fabrics can totally change the look of the same design!

Monsoon/Frost is my first quilt pattern to be made available for both retail and wholesale.  Both designs are included in the same pattern.  It is also a Sizzix friendly pattern, using die 657622.

So if you own a fabric shop and are stocking Makower’s Monsoon fabrics, get in touch for more details about my wholesale digital pattern agreement.


Or grab a copy of your own pattern here (hard copies available to purchase in class).


Happy sewing!

  1. Beautiful quilt!.
    Wouldn’t be too difficult for a confident beginner.
    Done in your choice of fabrics
    it would make a lovely gift for a teenager.
