Press & Commission Work

I love creating patterns and coming up with unique, mainly rainbow themed projects. I've been lucky enough to produce projects for Quilt Now magazine, which you can see below. There is plenty more in various stages of planning and sewing too, so keep your eyes open. 

I'm always up for trying something new so if you would like to commission me to create something, please get in touch.

 

Dashwood Confetti Quilt & Cushion

Dashwood Studio - July 17

     .  

I was really chuffed when I was asked to make something with the new Dashwood Studio Confetti Collection, just before its release. It's a ridiculously sweet collection and great for quilting with. I went with my usual half square triangles but created an exploding star. Mixed with a few Twists ti love how it turned out.

A friend for Atomic Kitty - meet Twisted Tiger

Dashwood Studio - July 17

 . 

I had so much fun with Atomic Kitty, that when Dashwood asked if I could make something for them I jumped at the chance to make a Tiger. Twisted Tiger is made entirely from Dashwood Studio Twist fabric which is a fab blender and great as an alternative to a solid. I really love how it turned out and may have to make myself one as the one I made resides at Dashwood Studios.

Oh Deer Cushion & Quilt

Quilt Now - Issue 37

      .  

I love how the Deer turned out and in fact the baby quilt now hangs above my bed as a little piece of art. The Unicorn cushion is a massive 28" in size and looks really striking, but I love the 38" Baby quilt / wall hanging.

Frankie Fox Cushion

Quilt Now - Issue 36

     

I love a little fox, not quite as much as a cat but they are very quiltable (new word)! I made this little fella for Quilt Now and Katy kindly gave him/her a name; Frankie. This pattern was relatively easy compared to the Unicorn and great as a next step for beginners.

Rainbow Unicorn Cushion

Quilt Now - Issue 35

     

I think this pattern was written for 10 year old me, back in the 80s. Fair to say I was a fan of wonderfully bright and kitsch toys like My Little Pony and Care Bears along with making Lego creations from bonkers bright colours. The Unicorn cushion is a massive 26" in size and looks really striking.

Atomic Kitty Cushion

Quilt Now Issue 33

      

I've always had cats so this was an obvious pattern to make and combined with some bright colours, I love the way this turned out. The cushion now lives on my sofa and gets funny looks from my cats, although they give funny looks to just about everything!

Geo Citrus Quilt

Quilt Now - Issue 32

     

I'm obviously a massive fan of yellow and I love the way it combines with green and grey. This quilt took quite a bit of maths to figure out, but I love maths so that was fun (for me). It's easier than it looks, just stripes and HST's and if you follow the pattern the maths is done for you too.

Rainbow Star Baby Quilt

Quilt Now  - Issue 31

      

I'm slightly obsessed with all things rainbow related so whilst re-arranging my fabric in to colour wheel order (sad I know), I couldn't help but put the rainbow colours on the cutting table. This one is nice and bright but also relatively easy to make.
