As I am unable to attend craft fairs at the moment I am busy making stock in anticipation of future events. I’ll be posting pictures of new items on this page to show what I have been doing while self-isolating at home.
Latest bespoke order for a Tamil baby. The colour scheme of red and yellow reflects the colours of the Tamil ethnic flag, the hand-embroidered tiger symbolises the Tamil’s liberation struggle in Sri Lanka and the letters are the name and surname of the baby in Tamil language also hand-embroidered. Hope both mother and baby like it as the quillow is a surprise present!
The history of Sunpatch Quilts..
My name is Susie and quilting has been my passion for many years and what started as a hobby has now become a full time obsession and led to the creation of Sunpatch Quilts.
For me quilting is not just about working with traditional patterns, it’s about trying out new ideas which I come across on the Internet or design myself to complete a bespoke order. The best part of quilting is the planning stage where I lose myself into colours and patterns and, as many clients testify, I seem to have the knack of combining colours to suit specific tastes.
In most cases my stock consists of items I create to satisfy personal needs such as wall-hanging Bargellos (I have four so far in my house), patchwork kimono jackets ( a quilted one for winter and a patchwork one for summer) , pocket bags to use for shopping or oven gloves for the kitchen, so when people ask me “where did you get that?” I am confident there is sufficient demand to sell these at craft fairs all over London or online.
