I have made the decision to retire, but don’t want to disappoint many loyal customers.  I want you to finish your quilts! so the shop section of this website will operate for the time being.   It is 37 years since my first commission.  Back in 1984 I was a 27 year old with keen ambitions and saw no boundaries to what I could achieve.  I somehow exceeded my expectations, succeeding in ways I thought impossible. Looking back It was all down to hard work and determination.  Through my work I met my husband and sadly became a widow 24 years later. I still get a thrill picking up a needle and getting lost in a creative state in my studio.   Now offering a retirement sale of waistcoats and other textile items.  Please ask for further details. My youtube, pinterest and instagram will continue to run and be updated, for your inspiration.   Thanking you for all your support over the years.

Using hexagon as a guide, cut rectangles. Allow about 1cm seam allowance all around.  Tack paper hexagon to paper as shown above then sew hexagons together.
