J-n-K Designs: A Family Affair


We wanted to start out our new blog by letting you know who we are!  We are a mother-daughter team who finally decided that it is never too late to start doing what you love, and for us that just happens to be quilting/sewing!

J-n-K Designs came to life in 2009 and just continues to grow on a daily basis.  We work out of Juli's (mom) home with hopes of one day getting a true studio space somewhere in the beautiful state of Virginia.  We do everything related to quilting from the design of the quilt, picking out fabric, cutting, piecing, and finally, long-arm quilting each and every quilt we make.  Don't forget the binding, because we do that too! :)

 We take great pride in everything we make. Some days we spend creating ideas and searching for fabrics, while other days are completely spent sewing.  Either way, you will always find us with a quilt or fabric in mind. 

Juli works from home and takes care of the cats, which doesn't leave her much time for quilting or sewing, but she somehow takes charge and makes some of the prettiest quilts I have ever seen.  She loves muted colors, but can step out of her shell and make some amazing color choices.  She is very strict on herself and makes sure every part of the quilt is perfect, or she will re-do it.

Katie, on the other hand, loves playing with any and all colors and doesn't mind if there is one spot off on a quilt, because that means there will never be another quilt just like it. 

The joy of working as a mother-daughter team cannot even be put into words.  I am the luckiest girl in the world to get to spend so much time with my mom doing something we both love.  We hope you continue to check in on our work and all of our websites listed below.
