About the Designer

Julie Higgins started sewing garments when she was 12 years old. She began making quilts about five years ago. She has been enthusiastically learning, teaching, speaking to quilter and designing ever since. Her first book, Learn English Paper Piecing by machine, was released by House of White Birches in June 2005. Her quilt Owinja won a Judge's Choice Award in the 2003 Miniatures from the Heart Contest, and her quilts have been juried into the 2003 Hoffman and 2003 Sulky Loves American exhibits. She has won awards at regional shows and fairs, and has exhibited locally. Her designs have been published in McCalls Quick Quilts and McCall's Quilting. She has spend the last couple of years writing books so that she can share her discoveries with others.

Julie is a certified financial planner who work in investment-related fields for 23 years. She and her husband own a part-tent rental business in Bloomington, Ind., and she left investments to work with her husband, daughter and son full-time. Her office assistant is little and fuzzy, and he takes frequent naps at her feet.
