Joy Duke is a designer, teacher and lecturer for Joyous Applique Designs. After initially thinking applique was too difficult, she gave several techniques a try and found a few that are her favorites. She has now created over 100 patterns and enjoys sharing her passion with others through teaching and lecturing. The more Joy explores applique, the more stitches are being added to her designs which will appeal to new and seasoned quilters alike!
