Aullwood: Julie Zaccone Stiller

Julie Zaconne Stiller's work resonates with bright color and wonderful shapes and patterns. She works intuitively, placing things where her eye and spirit move her. I love the richness of her Sun Garden which is at left. "The sun rules this garden where traces of it remain in all the flowers and plants." One might add that this quilt retains it as well.

Julie works in Boulder Creek, California. You can find some of her other work here, as well as on her blog.

In this next piece, Creation City her colors are fantastic and the shapes are pleasing to the eye. I love the fact that this quilt has a shaped border. Here's what she said in her statement: "An idealized vision of a city whose purpose is to create. The city is immersed in and completely a part of the natural world which surrounds it."

Working intuitively can be fun. Take some fusible and iron it on to different sections of fabric, then cut them and start playing with the shapes. Work quickly and freely. Explore and enjoy the process.

Hi Lisa, thanks so much for reviewing and posting pictures of all the quilts in this exhibit. It was almost as good as getting to go see them in person!

Thank you Ann and Julie! I enjoy going to this little show because it draws in people from across the country, and especially when I "know" people from the Quiltart list, it's really fun when you see the work in person!
