One of a kind bespoke quilt commissions are always welcome.
If you wish me to make you a quilt from cherished old clothes, or from your own special stash of fabric, I can work with you to design a quilt to the size&style that fits you&your home. I can also stitch a quilt (-floor cushion-tent-laptop cover-you decide) as a special gift to celebrate a significant event, or I can make a personalised quilt just for you or for a loved one.
Recent bespoke commissions have included; working on a monochromatic quilt in cooling cotton for the summer, stitching a hard-wearing Harris Tweed patchwork quilt backed with William Morris’s classic print; The Strawberry Thief for a boy to grow with and a surprise memory quilt gifted at Christmas for a mum made from all her daughter’s clothes.

Is your heating on now? Mine is! I’m notoriously nesh which goes right against my celtic roots, but might explain one of the reasons for my passion for authentic British textiles. If any excuse were needed to wrap up warm in a cosy British Woollen Blanket or a sumptuous Harris Tweed Quilt now the chilly mornings & cold nights are here, now is the time you can truly indulge in some delicious cosseting at home.
Enjoy your week, keep warm & onward x
