About - Kohatu Patterns

Welcome to Kohatu Patterns!

Rachel Julia is a Quilter and Designer based in Wellington New Zealand. She began quilting in 2005 and turned her hand to designing in 2017, focusing on Foundation Paper Pieced Quilt Blocks and Machine Pieced Quilt Patterns. She creates her quilts using a 1960s-era Bernina Sewing Machine which she inherited from her Grandmother.
Rachel enjoys creating quilts with pictorial themes or stories and has created several collections of foundation paper pieced quilt blocks which can be combined for a quilt, or used as a stand-alone block.

Rachel has a passion for quilting and loves to encourage others. 

Keep an eye on the Events Page for Quilt-Alongs and Live Online Workshops where Rachel teaches Foundation Paper Piecing and Quilting for Beginners! 
These workshops are lots of fun and a great opportunity to learn new skills in the comfort of your own home, plus you get to meet other participants from all around the world!
