In conjunction with our Meet the Makers Sew Along, we are excited to introduce you to the “makers” of Riley Blake Designs – the super talented fabric designers who consistently blow us away with their talent and artistry.
Today, meet Janet, otherwise known as J. Wecker Frisch, owner of Joy Studio. The art of J. Wecker Frisch through her company, Joy Studio, has been translated to over a million yards of high quality cotton fabrics. Janet’s diverse collections and unique approach to fabric design has inspired makers around the world. Janet’s childhood fascination with characters inspires a story-telling quality and a depth of detail, offering the viewer a journey of continued discovery. Her engaging body of work includes three identifiable elements – visual humor, heartfelt messaging and relatable images. Each watercolor-rendered piece is a short story that conveys a big message with compelling and concise imagery.
Janet’s newest fabric collection, Paperdoll, features dolls, patterns and sewing notions. Her signature use of color and layering is full of charm and vintage appeal – pure eye candy!
Janet finished Block #1 of the Meet the Makers quilt, using only red and white prints from her fabric collection. There are so many options with the Paperdoll collection, and this two-tone interpretation is simply fabulous!
Take a look at Janet’s Instagram and follow her @jweckerfrisch for gorgeous photos, ideas and lots of inspiration!
In order to get to know Janet a little better, we gave her a list of words in alphabetical order to which she could give any reply that came to mind. Enjoy this fun and refreshing look at life through Janet’s unique lens!
We love how the varied colors and patterns of Janet’s Paperdoll collection work beautifully together!
Today, we are giving away an assorted 1/2 Yard Bundle of Paperdoll fabric (including the 24″ doll panel) to one lucky winner!
