Julia Graves, Quilt Artist

 

Color Exploration and Gem Quilts

 

Julia Graves of Special Occasion Quilts has been sewing since she was ten. She has always loved fabric and sewing and needle arts in general and the whole creative process!

 

Julia did her apprenticeship as a quilter by making a quilt for each of her nieces and nephews (there were 35!). They got to choose their colors, so she greatly expanded her repertoire of color schemes!

 

Since then, Julia has made many quilts for special people, incorporating various ways to let them know how much they were cared for, especially enjoying color and incorporating information on color.

 

Julia has been Artist in Residence at Empty Spools Seminars in 2019 and is a Gem Quilt Affiliate.
