Juliet van der Heijden

Our August guest speaker was Juliet van der Heijden from Christchurch.  Juliet has made a name for herself as a creater of fabulour foundation paper piecing patterns.  You might know her through her blog Tartan Kiwi. The name came about because she's a Scot, now living in New Zealand.


Juliet talked about her work as an archeologist, and then as a radiographer in the Netherlands.


She showed us lots of photos of her quilts, and bought some along for us to look at closely.




Fourteen of our guild members took a full day class with Juliet on the Sunday after the guild meeting, and made the 20" zebra pattern.  Here's some photos from the class.



You can buy all of Juliet's patterns in her online store and print them out at home.  Just click here.
