My favourite fabric choice is using what I have or recycling fabric that other people have given me, because they no longer have a use for it.
I often make quilts from Tartan or Tweed, because I love the colours and texture, but recently I have gone back to cotton. Over the past year or so I realised that I wanted to use what I had, so out came my stash of cotton and I've made 3 quilts so far!
Maybe you have some fabric that you bought for a project and never got round to doing. Why not make it into a quilt?
How to Commission a Quilt.

As you can see, I am very fond of simple designs to create a pattern, but if you have seen something you like, then why not show me. If I am making a memory quilt from cherished clothes, then sometimes what I have decides on the how the quilt looks.
Perhaps you have a stash of fabric and would love for it to be used. I like nothing better than working with fabrics that do not appear to go together. Sometimes a stunning quilt can be the result.
A quilt can be any size. Think about what you want it for. Snuggling under on the sofa watching TV? To cover the top of the bed or as a display on the wall? I have several quilts around the house - over bannisters, on sofas and on the bed. I have warm cosy woollen patchwork blankets and light summery cotton throws.
The cost is approximately £12 per square foot plus wadding and backing fabric. Postage and packing will be £10 - £15 per item.
