WOW! This bunch of quilts is so special. My buttons would be bursting if I could make 1 or 2 that are this fabulous!

Kathryn said...

Very prolific. Firecracker is still one of my favorites. I think I need to make another in 2017. I made several quilts for Pulse also, and yours reminded me of that effort. Best of 2017 to you. I look forward to your new work.

What a busy girl you've been, Julie. I wish I had finished that many. You've inspired me to go back and look at exactly what I have finished this past year. I know I've started a lot of new ones. :)

Happy quilting!

Karen said...

Whoop! Whoop! What a wonderful collection of beautiful cozyness! Happy New Year!

Wow! You have been busy! Thanks for the inspiration from the Star Wars quilt. I am thinking about making a similar quilt for my grandson.

Hi Julie,

Love the tutorial on sewing 60° angles together with a greater degree of precision. This lesson is very valuable for quilting and everyday sewing to make an average quilt a spectacular quilt. Details, like the ones you explain, matter a lot!

This is a great (much needed) review tutorial. I like the clarity you use in explaining your technique to achieve perfect points and general perfection. Love your quilts and your sense of design.
