Julie Hendricksen has been collecting antique quilts for more than 30 years. Scrap quilts from the turn of the nineteenth century are her favorites. As Julie professes, the more fabrics in each quilt, the more interesting they become! Visitors to Julie's quilt shop, JJ Stitches in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, will often find both a reproduction quilt and the antique quilt that inspired it on display together. Julie's collection of antique quilts is the inspiration for the fabric lines she's designed for Windham Fabrics, and it's no surprise that her shop specializes in reproduction fabrics.Visit Julie's website
