Make it British Quilts

and if you are tempted to buy, and I hope you are; there’s a 5% discount on all my quilts at Make it British http://makeitbritish.co.uk/ until the end of the year.

Today the wintry weather is being particularly lousy, so wrapping up in a cosy quilt and hibernating at home is just what is needed.

A new Harris Tweed quilt-what do you think?

31 Jul

Just had some sample quilts stitched and the ideal excuse, if one was needed, to combine this gorgeous golden Hardy’s velvet with Tinsmith’s Bukotta and off course more distinct Harris Tweed woven by Callum. I just can’t get enough of Harris Tweed….

My shop is now open on folksy-again!

29 May

I’ve been stitching two random quilts to sell at my folksy shop. I really love folksy, the ethos behind it and of course all the fabulous makers and their products. Sooooo I thought it was high time that I reactivated my folksy shop and rejoined the community. I call these random quilts because of all the fabrics I have stitched into it-the design, I hope, is rather more considered! I had some ‘extra’ sumptuous velvet from my Harris tweed quilts to use and was inspired by the mixture of fabrics on my shelves that were begging to be stitched together. Here are some pics;

PS As I had some fabric leftover from making the quilts I have made some v.useful drawstring bags to house the quilts in when not in use-as if that will ever happen-well I hope not!

Have quilt will travel…

4 Apr

Back in Edinburgh for the Easter weekend. Took my new collection of quilts to show the folks. My photographic skills sadly not up to Jo’s superb quilt pics, (see my previous March post) but glad my theory has been proved correct;  that the colourways and style of these gorgeous Harris tweed and velvet quilts do fit in well with the design and decor of everybodys’ homes.
