One of a kind bespoke quilt commissions are always welcome.

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, stitching a Harris Tweed patchwork quilt backed with William Morris’s classic print; The Strawberry Thief; a baby patchwork quilt and a 70th birthday celebration quilt using memorable fabrics provided by friends and family.
