Archive Quilt

One day I had the brilliant idea of making an ‘archive quilt’ with my Moda fabrics. I thought traditional English paper piecing would be the easiest and most enjoyable method for this long time in the making quilt. One hexagon in every print in every colourway of every fabric collection I ever design.  And so […]

As you know, my next fabric line for Moda (due in shops Spring 2016) is based on my ‘The Wordsmith’ book which is all about pressed flowers from a precious bouquet, saved letters and little notes, collecting memories and stitching them into cloth to make quilts to snuggle under and tell your stories with.   […]

This dainty Gypsophila print from my ‘The Wordsmith’ fabric collection is a particular favourite of mine.

Optimize

I do love a New Year and the opportunity it brings to make a fresh start. I don’t make resolutions but I do set myself a word to live by for the year ahead. And this year I plan to ‘optimize’- my energy, my surroundings, my business and all the myriad opportunities I am given. My […]
