My super talented wedding photographer friend; Jo Bradbury has just forwarded these delicious images of her recent Coppermines photo shoot in The Lake District. Personally I cannot get enough of how delectable these images are and how well they tell this moody mid west wedding story. Also, I am off course thrilled to have my Sunshine yellow velvet & Harris Tweed patchwork quilt, plus my Folklore Fabric featured. Thank you so much Jo x

We are officially in autumn now that October is here…Right?
Personally I love the colours from the leaves turning, the brisk mornings and warm sunny days at this time of year. Of course, this is an ideal version of the marvelously problematic British weather which like many Mancunians I can be ever so slightly obsessive about (the weather & Manchester!). However, quilts (& blankets) come into their own in autumn and as well as brightening up a room with a colour pop of colour on the back of the sofa, or as a eye catching runner at the end of a bed, now you can start using them too!
My 100% Made in Britain quilts are stitched to last with iconic Harris Tweed and sumptuous velvet, trimmed in quintessential British prints. My quilts are heirlooms to pass on and as they are stitched in limited numbers they are also truly unique. Click to see my full quilts (cushions & more!) collections
With cosy – hygge autumnal days cuddling up in a quilt in mind, I am taking my Distinctly British quilts, cushions & more! to several fairs in the forthcoming months. Check out my What’s On at Quilt Towers page for more details.
September is a busy month!

A cornucopia of quilts were to be found at The Festival of Quilts 2017 last week.
Quilters from around the world descend on the NEC in Birmingham this time every year to display their awesome quilts, network and celebrate all things quilts. I visited on the opening day and it is just the tonic of colour, pattern and textures to inspire and motivate. Here are my quilt highlights;
Enjoy your week, whatever the Great British summer weather x
