About Kirsty Macdonald Quilts

Kirsty Macdonald Quilts

When life gives you scraps, make quilts!

I used to have a dining room.... now it has 4 sewing machines, a lot of fabric and a rainbow of threads where the art should be!

I started sewing as a teenager on my mum's sewing machine - making skirts as long as I wanted when the shops didn't cater for taller girls. Over the years I have sewn curtains and cushions, costumes and quilts and I am learning to upholster which is great fun! I like making things that last - and will hopefully be here after I am gone - and so quilt making is my favourite. There is something very special about a quilt. The first one I made was made of all sorts of fabric lying around the house - normally off-cuts of my mother's sewing projects. I made a huge handmade quilt with hexagons with remnants of old curtains, bedspreads, sheets and clothes - it included every kind of fabric. My mother called it 'The Memory Quilt' and she was right! I still use it 30 years later and it is the store of many family memories. When my nieces and nephews came along I made them all a blanket for their first birthdays. They are too big for them now, but they are stored away, waiting for the next generation.

I am not good a sitting watching TV without a project so I hand finish the binding on all my projects. In the winter, I like nothing better than a seat by our stove, something good on the TV and a quilt over my knees as I bind the edges.

Last year I started selling my quilts at some local craft fairs with two crafty friends. The best thing was that I could justify buying lots of lovely fabric and making quilts with no particular purpose in mind. Lockdown has meant I have to start selling online or build an extension for all my quilts! You can find me on social media as one of the 3Stitchers - it would be great if you could follow us. Thanks for visiting my shop!

    Wow. I cannot begin to tell you how beautiful this Christmas Advent Calendar is. I am absolutely over the moon. Kirsty is a wonderful seller, and I will have no hesitation to buy more Calendars over the coming year, as I have a few grandchildren who I know would love one. Can't leave anyone out!!!!! Thanks Kirsty. You are brilliant!!!!

    I bought this as a present for a very dear friend who I knew admired it and thought it would bring cheer to her sitting room. I am thrilled to give her something so perfectly made and original and delighted it arrived in good time for Christmas.
