Has anyone used any of Jacqueline deJonge's patterns for their quilts? I found some exceptional patterns but they are all over $20 a piece. Wondering if its worth the money or not. Are the pattern's well written? Most of them seem to be pp or applique.

Joy - I have never done any of her patterns or her kits - but when I looked her up - they are all paper pieced patterns from what I saw and $20 a piece is a good price for those - Judy Niemeyers patterns run you upwards of $50 - so this would seem reasonable to me if you get the pattern pieces in the pattern.

That price isn't bad at all considering most paper pieced patterns can run upward of $50.   She has some beautiful patterns.

I had no clue...just assumed they would be the same price as regular patterns! That's what I get for assuming! I will be ordering one of Jacqueline's patterns very soon! I have the pp fever!

Hi Joy,

I have two of her patterns ( Blooming Tail and The colorful quilt). Both of them are pp patterns. The colorful quilt pattern has a quilt size draft in it with the instructions but I will have to make copies for the foundations... so this pattern will sit a little longer on the shelf LOL. and I just looked at the other pattern and I will have to make copies of the different blocks for this one too. So I guess that is why they are "cheaper" (I have some other pp patterns which come with all of the paper printed for the blocks).

I have the pattern for Curling Colors.  I'm just learning paper piecing and have decided to make this for our guild's juried show.  If I don't have paper piecing down by the time I finish it, I never will!  Don't remember what I paid for the pattern but mid-$20's seems about right.  The pattern is almost a small book and she's written it in sections so it doesn't seem so overwhelming.

Joy, when I first answered you I didn't have any of her patterns in my house... I have one now - I just bought a beautiful kit with batiks and a purse that has her pattern in it.  I am ashamed to say I haven't opened it yet - but again - I can't do it today - but as soon as they say I am okay I'll open it and give you a very good answer as to what I think about her patterns.  I know I have several of Judy Niemeyers and think her quilts are gorgeous but her patterns stink... I work through them somehow - would not recommend them for a beginner or an intermediate quilter - only advanced ones doing paper piecing - I am hopeful that Jacqueline's are better.
