Hello and welcome to the Online Quilter's Meet & Greet hosted by Benita of Victoriana Quilt Designs.
For those who haven't visited my blog before, my name is Julie and I have been blogging here at JulieLou since 2013.
Originally I started my blog as a way for my mum and sister who don't live near me to see my quilting and other craftwork, both progress and finished projects. I now blog about the things that make me happy: quilting, EPP, embroidery and applique, my garden, cooking, hiking, reading and my latest foray into making clothes.
I don't think I have a definitive quilting style. I'm definitely not scared to use colour, and if anything, I seem to have a phobia about using white in my quilts. Low volume is fine, white just doesn't seem to happen. Grey is probably my go to neutral. Scrappy quilts of some description are probably my favourite to make.

My favourite fabric designer is Anna Maria Horner - I adore her brightly coloured bohemian styled fabrics. My latest quilt finish and current favourite was made from her fabrics that I had been hoarding in my stash.

Liberty fabrics are also a favourite and have been used in lots of little items like pin cushions and needle cases, as well as a quilt.
I enjoy EPP too, my WIP (which I haven't touched since January) is my Ice Cream Soda Blossoms quilt, which I am still hoping to turn into a finished quilt this year. I think hexis are my favourite shape to play with though.
There are still lots of quilts I'd like to make, and I have lots of fabric to be used, so there will always be something being created with fabric and thread here at JulieLou. For stories and pictures on all the quilts I've made, check out my Quilt Gallery here.
