Once Upon A Time... Quilt, a set on Flickr.

This quilt is an adaptation of the Storytelling Quilt I made for Nina. This version is for lovely Mila and her mum Heba, a way to say thank you for work being done to create a look for Two Madels. Each panel uses the log cabin pattern and Heather Ross fabric. The back is made of donated fabrics, including a recent addition from Central St Martin's fashion department! The edging is made from gorgeous green & white polka dots picked up at The Festival of Quilts earlier this month!

Commission for Christopher


Commission for Christopher, a set on Flickr.
My second commission and first from a stranger! Christopher is an extra-special baby as he is being adopted. New mum and dad wanted something unique, that would keep him warm and be something to treasure forever. This 'Building Block' baby quilt is cot bed size (120x150cm) and has 140 blocks! As mum provided me with some fabric she has collected I was able to add an extra bit of detail on the back. I do hope they enjoy it!

This was a birthday gift for my good friend Nina - to say thanks for all the support and laughs she has given me in the short time we've known each other.

Each panel is made of complimenting fabric scraps framed in white cotton. The quilt can be used at bedtime to snuggle into and inspire storytelling and beautiful dreams!
