Julie is a quilt finisher from north of where I like in Spring Valley, MN. I regularly drop off quilt tops to her on my way to doctor appointments. It’s kind of funny…I drop them off, she starts working on them. By the time she almost has them all finished, it’s time for me to go to the doctor again. HA! It’s a pretty good system. You might remember that Julie also makes a lot of pillowcases.
Julie recently sent me a group of pictures that I thought I would share with you today.
A new Veteran’s home is being built in Preston, MN. Julie has been starting to put quilts together to donate there. A kind blog reader donated this top. Julie has a friend that generously helps with the longarming. Here it is off the frame and ready to bind.
The motif is awesome!
I am sure this one will be loved.
I am not sure who donated the tops…If it was you and… you’re reading this, please let us know in the comments if one of these might have been a top you donated.
Julie does a lot of quilts that are donated to kids so this one would be perfect for that.
The colors are very kid friendly…bright and cheery.
I love the motif on this!!
Julie found the perfect batik for the backing. It looks like one of those hard to use batiks with the color change so drastic but it’s PERFECT for a backing!
Julie does lots of quilt for benefits, the ambulance, nursing home and other worthy causes. I’m betting this beauty will be perfect for a benefit. The colors are great!
Here you can see the pretty motif for the machine quilting.
Another perfect backing.
Here is another…such a great design ans would be awesome for a controlled scrappy quilt.
Here is the quilting motif. It’s perfect for the quilt.
Here you can see it better on the backing.
Julie said when she sent these that she will have 20 quilts to bind once the longarmer gets done with all of her work. Julie is going to be really busy binding quilts!! She loves it though as she is an avid charity quilter and takes pride in her work.
Julie is always looking for tops to finish. You can see from the pictures the types of quilts she is wanting to finish…from kids, to patriotic, Kansas Troubles, to scrappy. She loves novelty prints for pillowcases and would love backing fabric.
Julie said her next big push is to make pillowcases for the new Veteran’s home. She is working on making 60 pillowcases all with patriotic fabrics. Julie would love any donations. Coming up with 60 yards of fabric to make 60 pillowcases is a task!!
Here is a contact for Julie firstname.lastname@example.org . Feel free to contact her for her address if you have some goodies you can send her way.
Thanks to those who sent goodies Julie’s way already. I’m sure Julie will send more pictures as she finishes the rest of the quilts.
