Julie's Quilts

My friend, Karleen, invited me over for a lovely morning of quilting 'show and tell'.  The quilts all belonged to her friend, Julie, who creates beautiful quilts in many different styles and colors.  From 1930's prints to holiday or hunting themes, each quilt represents something important to Julie.  She knows each quilt intimately, even able to point out individual pieces and comment on the fabric or color shade.  Even Lucy, Karleen's dog, enjoyed the morning as we draped quilts over the patio rail for photographing on a chilly day.  Colorful, creative, and cheerful, Julie's quilts helped create a warm and happy day!  What an inspiration!

  2. Gorgeous quilts! I love the color and combinations Julie has chosen.

  3. I have made many quilts, big and small. Each one is special. I've found that you work through many problems in your life as you stitch across a quilt. As though moving down a highway, from one part of the country back to the other. Very cathartic.

  4. An explosion of color! Wonderful. Thanks so much for today's post! Sincerely, Susan from writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com
