Hello! I’m Lucy, and I’ve loved craft ever since I was a little girl. I finally bought myself a sewing machine in 2008, shortly after my first daughter was born, and haven’t stopped sewing since. My interests range from sewing garments for myself and my children, through avoiding fixing my husband’s clothes, to designing and making quilts and patterns to sell.
I sew because I love creating something from scratch, whether that’s a cocktail dress or a baby blanket. For me, quilts are the ultimate in practical beauty. All around the world and for centuries past, people have made the most amazing quilts out of the supplies available to them. In honour of the thrifty traditions of early quilt-makers, I always try to use every scrap of fabric from my yardage, whether that’s all in one quilt or by making mini or scrappy quilts from the remnants. Every quilt I make is an original design, and I love working through the stages of design, from initial idea to binding a finished quilt.
I would describe my style as ‘modern vintage’ (I know, you can wear out a phrase, can’t you…), which to me means using traditional techniques and designs but always keeping things fresh.
If you feel like talking (I love to talk!), please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or connect via Instagram or Facebook.
Have a great day!
