The Queen of Hexies herself, editor of Hexie Love, author of Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts and More Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts, Julia Wood is our Day Six!
I first met Julia last year on the set of Quilting Arts TV where we were both taping segments for series 1300. Julia was demonstrating a very traditional way of making hexagons from circles of fabric. Her segment project sheet Unconventional Hexagons has received the most views and most downloads in the whole history of QATV… a very traditional but previously only-known-to-a-few technique!
We met up again in Chicago at Festival this summer and then the planet aligned and we were able to share a room when we were both teachers at AQS Quilt Week – Chattanooga. Julia drove up from Alabama with a lot of luggage and a beautiful bunch of bananas ready for our breakfasts!
Here’s Julia standing next to the her classroom sign…
We had a lot of fun together. I brought my little hexagon quilts with me and we had a photo shoot in the hotel lobby! (Yes, Julia is standing on the seats…)
As the author of her two AQS books Julia did a book signing on the show floor. She is such a warm and friendly lady!
I learnt a few good southern phrases in our time together… They do come in handy from time to time.
I usually use my walking foot to quilt my hexagon quilts so I am delighted that Julia is part of my blog hop. You can read what she has to say at her blog today.
Details of all the blogs on my hop are listed below. Don’t forget I am giving copy of my DVD to at least one lucky reader who has made a comment on my blog over the course of the blog hop. You have until the end of Christmas Day to leave your thoughts!
