  3. Julie's patterns look fun and easy, but the thing I love the most is the different secondary patterns that evolve! I'm a scrappy kind of gal and so enjoy seeing the various ways she uses small pieces of fabric.

    Thanks for sharing!

  6. I love the variety in her patterns. I also think they look just difficult enough to grow my piecing skills, but hopefully, not so frustrating they would end up in my UFO box. LOL

  9. Julie's patterns can be colorful and the geometric designs allow for modifications so the quilts "become your own"...while being simple enough that beginning quilters can make them. Thanks for the giveaway. All of Julie's new patterns are cute. alternate email mlwright29(at)hotmail(dot)com

  16. I love all the beautiful colors Julie always uses in her quilts. I haven't made one of hers yet so I can't speak to them being easy or hard but I've read they are very friendly to use and I'd love to find out myself. She's always so friendly herself so I cannot imagine her making anything but a friendly quilt. :)

  17. Yes, it sounds fair... I am really loving this pattern and pleased at how the different color selections give different personalities to the quilts. Like that some of you mentioned the quilt wasnt difficult. Also liked the Off The Rail Pattern - though the center block could be used for a nice embroidery. Thanks!
