Well hello there friends, it’s Tina from Emily Ann’s Kloset. I’m stopping by to help kick off your summer sewing projects using this elegant fabric called
Toile de Jouy by Emily Hayes for Penny Rose Fabrics.
First, I thought I would share a little history behind the name “toile de jouy”. It’s kind of fun to learn a little bit about the name behind fabric your using right?
Toiles were originally produced in Ireland in the mid-18th century and quickly became popular in Britain & France. The term, Toile de Jouy, originated in France in the late 18th century. In the French language, the phrase literally means “cloth from Jouy-en-Josas”, a town in the south-west suburbs of Paris.
Do you feel like you took a little trip to France just now?
This French inspired fabric really felt summery to me so I decided to use a Schnibbles mini quilt pattern called Full House to make some cute summer cottages. #summerdecor
From my summer cottage to yours …… happy quilting friends!
