Hurrah for sunshine and the summer.
And if the weather does throw us a curve ball, a cosy quilt or blanket is ideal to have at hand to combat any chills during The Great British Summer.

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; a baby patchwork quilt and a 70th birthday celebration quilt using memorable fabrics provided by friends and family.
