My home is full to bursting with a patchwork quilt or two.
I’ve been a patchwork and quilter for over twenty years. There are so many projects stashed away in my home that I sometimes forget just what I’ve made.
Scrappy Patchwork Quilt
If you’ve ever meet an avid patch-worker, you’ll probably know that somewhere in their home, lives the biggest pile of large bed quilts you can possibly imagine.
Well it’s the same in my home.
For over ten years, I worked in a Patchwork and Quilting shop, making quilt samples for the shop and samples for my own workshops too. Hence, my ‘pile’ is slightly bigger than most.
A pincushion is a staple part of any Stitcher’s kit. Yet for me there is one very special pincushion that I hold dear to my heart.
There are several objects in my sewing room that mean a great deal to me, but there is one thing that means the world to me. I use it every day.
This was made as a gift for me, by my beautiful daughter when she was aged 6….. she is now 21 and I love it….. my very own caterpillar pin cushion.
