American/Canadian, could be your neighbor! Married with two grown children and now two grandchildren! Loving being a grandma! I began quilting in the 1990ʼs with scraps of fabric. Then wanting to make personalized family heritage quilts I used my own technique of pounding flowers, adding highlights to the petals and finally special notes with Pigma pens. In 2010 I expanded my quilting ideas into designing my own fabrics through a company called Spoonflower. I learned how to work with my computer, how to create repeats, how to change up colors etc. When sharing my designs with others I felt the prompting to create a collection and see if there would be a company who would take it on. There were several interested companies - Newcastle Fabrics printed my first collection called Julia's Notes. Today "In The Beginning Fabrics" is producing my second collection called "A TIme to Mend" You can see images of the designs in my blog or by googling "In The Beginning Fabrics." With a background as a quilter, dabbler in acrylic painting and sketching - fabric design was a new idea for me. And it is a curious journey! I love expressing my faith through words and pictures. A piece in each collection of designs presents words that inspire for quilters to use in their quilts or other sewn items.
