Artist, Quilter, Wife, Mother, Paramedic, Combat Veteran... Juliet quilts to relieve stress, to work through the memories of her experiences in Iraq where she was injured and her life changed forever. Where some people would have given up Juliet has turned her injuries into a new chapter and into new quilts. Come visit with Juliet and listen to her tell her story about her quilts, the art that they have become, and the journey that these quilts have taken.
