Patchwork quilts were originally made from scraps of fabric cut from clothes and worn household linens. Women stitched them to celebrate marriages, welcome new babies, to give as gifts and above all to keep their families warm at night. Designs were inspired by the world around them .They told the story of their lives as pioneer families and have names such as log cabin, lone star, wagon wheel and bear's claw.

.

Using cotton fabrics the patchwork 'tops 'are pieced and sewn using a sewing machine. Reused and vintage fabrics are included in many quilts. The 'wadding' middle layer is polyester cotton for ease of washing but  100% cotton can be used on request. The 'back' layer is 100% cotton fabric unless stated otherwise. The quilts are finished by hand and each one is unique. A child's name can be added if wished.

 

     

 Here are some designs which can be made to order:
