Juliet's patterns are available for PDF download from her Etsy or Payhip stores. We talk about how she got into foundation paper piecing (FPP), why she loves it and how she believes everyone can find a way to make it work for them.
Juliet will be teaching two classes at the New Zealand National Quilt Symposium in Christchurch in October this year. A beginners class for those just starting out with FPP and an intermediate for those wanting to tackle something to stretch their skills.
Juliet began designing FPP patterns using Quilt Assistant, a free quilt design software. She used her pattern income to save up and purchase EQ7, which is now her design tool of choice.
Juliet is active on social media and we discuss how much of an influence technology has had on helping her find her 'thing', grow her community and develop her business.

We also touch on copyright and I urge you to check out Juliet's blog post called Copyright/copywrong. Juliet is not only a talented designer, but writes thoughtful and insightful articles.
Oh, and the book! Did I mention the book?! Juliet has been working away on her very first book. It will be released this October and I learn all about what it will contain. Preorder it here!
Juliet's favourite tool for FPP is the 'add a quarter' ruler that has a little lip to help you trim your FPP seams to a neat quarter of an inch.
