About

Hello and welcome to a website all about textiles. If you are interested in textiles of all kinds, there is plenty here for you to enjoy…

I’m Amanda. I’m a fabric and quilt designer, artist and maker (listed in the Crafts Council Directory here).

If you like fabric, there are 120 unique and charming FABRIC DESIGNS here (I’m a surface pattern designer by training).

Fabrics are supplied by print-on-demand firm Spoonflower. Fabric is shipped from Berlin, Germany or Durham, USA. Fabric sizes start at an 8 x 8″ (20 x 20cm) swatch.

You’ll find original, charming, colourful and quirky designs for all your dressmaking, quilting and home furnishing needs because each design can be printed on a variety of fabrics (and on wallpaper).

If you need a QUILT/SEWING PATTERN take a look at the patterns here. Each pattern for a quilt (like the ‘Mexico Quilt’ shown right) has step-by-step instructions with colour photos so it is easy to follow even for beginner and intermediate quilters and sewing enthusiasts.

Throughout 2021, there is a free QUILTALONG to make ‘Summer Bouquets’, a pretty double-bed quilt. The quilt uses fabrics from one of my fabric collections. Instructions are given month by month on the blog – see here for details.

If you’d like to learn something new, explore the CLASSES page here and YOUTUBE channel here. (I’m a qualified Textiles and Art teacher.)

There are also free patterns and projects on the TUTORIALS page here.
