Getting Lazy with Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts
Lazies, I’m so excited to introduce you to the very talented Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts. Many of you already know Julie’s work as she’s been published in many quilt magazines. Julie is a prolific quilter, long-time Lazy Girl, blogger and creative force.
Hugs & Kisses #JBQ106
Along with my luggage, I found (met) Julie at baggage claim at the Houston airport last year. That’s right, baggage claim. Julie was the only one in our large group with any energy by the time we arrived in Houston.
Lazy Angle Ruler
With our Lazy Angle ruler joining the Creative Grids family, I contacted Julie and asked if she’d play with the ruler and see where it took her. Well, I didn’t know she was a ruler-lovin’ kind of quilter and she went wild with it.
More about the Creative Grids Lazy Angle ruler here.
Today, Julie shares her five new Jaybird Quilts patterns, all of which feature the Creative Grids Lazy Angle ruler. I love Julie’s designs, each one more than the last. It’s hard to pick a favorite.

Hugs & Kisses, #JBQ106
Shown above, I love Hugs & Kisses. The pieced ‘X’s and diamond shaped ‘O’s create a simply vibrant overall design.
Spinning stars remind me of fireworks. The fantastic colors set against the drama of the white background make for a lively and festive quilt.
Fast Forward, #JBQ107
Pieced strip sets make this a quick project. The black background and spacing between the pieced spirals give great visual movement.

I love Unwind. This quilt is an excellent opportunity to play with dramatic fabric combinations. Don’t be shy, throw it all in to the mix and Unwind a gorgeous quilt.
I’m a sucker for these chunky, dancing star blocks. They remind me of wild spinning carnival rides.
