I just completed a labour of love for a dear friend.
I love the process of collaboration and designing with someone special in mind.
The brief was simple and inspiring:
"Please make me a quilt in my favourite colour to throw over my couch and bed and if possible please incorporate my hand embroidered Indian Kantha quilt".
Searching through my archive fabrics and making a selection
I create new fabric by patching together smaller textiles l have designed and collected over the years.
I love creating from my remnant fabrics, it means nothing goes to waste, and it then becomes a piece that has a history and tells a story.
Part of my design philosophy is to create multi functional pieces that can be worn or used in different ways.
The Kantha quilt becomes the base that l work upon, adding my patchwork to the wrong side, making the quilt reversible.
Finished quilt complete with cushions...l had some left over patches so l couldn't stop myself!
