Review from Popular Patchwork, February 2013
Home Sweet Quilt is a beautiful collection of modem country cottage style quilts. Jill's style is pretty and fresh, combining simple piecing and applique to stunning effect. Many of the designs incorporate natural shapes like flowers, fruits and leaves, but all of them are striking and uplifting. She uses the spray starch technique combined with freezer paper and basting glues to create her applique. She hand stitches a lot of her applique but all could be done my machine if you prefer. Jill provides some great hand stitching tips though, including the use of a great product produced by her studio, Poke-A-Dots, which protect your finger like a thimble but are lightweight and smaller. All the projects are attractive and incredibly effective but I think my favorites have to be Scattered Sunshine, which incorporates a thirties style flower design along the bottom of the quilt, Posy Party, a lap quilt combining black, white and 'pops' of color with a simple graphic floral design, and Overture, a cheery wall hanging with a central daisy medallion, multiple pieced borders and the use of felted wool.
Jill Finley has been designing quilt patterns for more than 15 years. Her creative spirit and affinity for working with fabrics result in a fresh take on traditional quiltmaking. She has an eye for color and pattern and loves to add the soft curves of applique to finish many of her quilts. In 2007 Jill launched her design business, Jillily Studio, through which she designs and sells quilt patterns, kits, fabrics, and notions. Her designs have been featured in several magazines, including American Patchwork and Quilting, Quilt, and Quilter's Home. She and her husband, Randy, live in Utah. They're the parents of seven children and are blessed with seven grandchildren. Visit Jill at jillilystudio.com.Contact Jill Finley
