Instructor: Julia McLeod

Julia McLeod started her working life in the menswear industry as a textile designer for tailored suits and jackets. Now, as a quilt maker, it's a strange coincidence that she loves nothing more than to use silk necktie fabrics in her work.

All kinds of silks and reclaimed fabrics find their way into Julia's quilts. She is unafraid to cut into heirloom fabrics and vintage blocks if it means bringing them out of storage and into the light of day for everyone to enjoy.
