About Quilterdown

Quilterdown

Quiltmaker. Fabric rescuer. Fabric stroker. Saving and preserving fabric one piece at a time!!!!

I have always loved fabric. My mother used to make beautiful dresses for me (and her) and I would collect the scraps to make clothes for my dolls! Some of those scraps ended up in a classic hexie quilt (pictured) that I started making in 1976 and finally "finished" a few years ago. As a newly wed homeowner,I made all the soft furnishings for my new home and didn't really sew for" fun " until I visited a vintage fair about 10 years ago. When I walked into the hall and saw stands groaning with vintage fabrics,I was hooked again. And so Quilterdown was born - the first quilt was for my god-daughter and I carried on from there. I now work from my garden studio which is crammed with vintage,modern & Liberty fabrics and which is my sanctuary.

I have many wonderful,returning customers who trust me to make them heirloom quilts,tablecloths and cushions (as well as unusual requests,such as party bags for a hen party). I also "rescue" vintage quilt tops,repair them and turn them into the quilts they were meant to be - keeping alive someone else's work and honouring their lives and inspiration.

I keep a notebook with me constantly to record ideas and anything can inspire me - floor tiles in a church,a picture in a magazine, a conversation. Often,a piece of fabric itself will "talk" to me!!!

I have been married for 30 years and have 3 boys (actually,men now!!). The world's nastiest cat allows us to live with him but he is adorable in his own way!
