About Bee-Spoke Quilts

 

How it all started...

I have been sewing for as long as I can remember, starting with making dolls clothes as a child, and later progressing onto dressmaking and then quilting.

I attended courses and over the years have developed my own style and designs. My aim is to give this traditional craft a contemporary twist with the use of vibrant colours and bold designs.


I make all the quilts myself in my home studio. I have a flair for combining colours to create a strong visual impact

The inspiration for many of my designs comes from the countryside and creatures which surround me, from pecking chickens, frisking horses and buzzing bees to poppy fields and beautiful garden flowers.


My quilts are exhibited at national craft fairs throughout the UK

 and have been featured in 'Country Living' and 'Aspire magazines'.

They are shipped worldwide.

About my quilts...

Every quilt is different and I frequently alter designs and colours so that your quilt is unique. If you see a quilt that you like on my website I can repeat the design but I will adapt it by using different fabrics and colour combinations.

All of my quilts are carefully handcrafted out of pure cotton fabric which is pre-washed to prevent shrinkage.
The quilts contain wadding to add warmth and padding. This is usually polyester but cotton is available on  request.
Each quilt is backed with interesting cotton fabrics so that both sides are attractive.

The quilts are available in a range of sizes, from cot size , or lap quilt to bed size. Lap quilts are great for personalising a room, used as a sofa throw or wall hanging. A huge range of beautiful fabrics is available to suit any taste.
