Julia loves making miniature quilts on a variety of themes – – especially small, pictorial quilts with little villages and sea sides. Her quilts have been inspired by travel in the UK & the Mediterranean.
She also loves Christmas themed patchwork & quilting. This is reflected in many of her designs for wall hangings, mini quilts, garlands, tree decorations and wreaths.
Julia tends to use a very quick and easy techniques that anyone can apply successfully. No expertise is required. You just need to like making little quilts.
Currently, Julia is beginning to work on larger quilts made with recycled vintage linens, especially those with embroidery. She enjoys recycling beautiful pieces of vintage work into new projects.
She has taught for many years and has experience of teaching the City & Guilds course. She also runs workshops including a weekend retreat with justhands-on.tv!
Julia lives in Surrey and travels all over the country to deliver talks and workshops. And, you will often see Julia at major quilt shows including Sandown and the Festival of Quilts.
