If you have seem something in my portfolio that you like but want it bigger, smaller, different colour, different fabric, different pattern then this is your chance to get a quilt or piece of textile art that exactly meets your needs. With quilt and art commissions, if you have a completely new idea we can talk about them, I can work with you to form a concept, creating a design, select the fabrics before making up the item.


Whether it is for a new baby, a christening, redecorating, moving home, a wedding, a special birthday, a special anniversary … or just because you want it … we can work together to design what you want. So that fabric loveliness is waiting for you.                     


Working with you:


The initial design process … following an initial conversation with you I will produce a design layout with suggested fabric samples. The design layout part will cost a non-refundable £30, which will be taken off the final cost of the quilt. We will then have a chat about any changes to be made to the design.

And then you will be on your way to owning a piece of quilting loveliness. – your heirloom for the future.


When we have agreed on the design you will pay a 50% deposit of the total price. I will make up your quilt to an agreed deadline, keeping you regularly informed of progress


The cost of a quilt very much depends on the cost of the materials and the complexity of the design but as an indication:

 – Baby/child quilts generally cost between £75 and £180

Single bed quilts come in at about £180 to £250

Double bed quilts range from £300 to £550

King size quilts generally range from £450 to £800


Commissions take longer to make than off-the-peg items as consultation and sourcing fabric can take some time and I make all the items myself.

So allow at least two months (for a small quilt) and up to five months (for a larger bed quilt or wall hanging) between your first contact and when you want the quilt to be delivered.

Alfie's quilt which I commissioned for Christmas. It's glorious, the attention to detail is mind boggling, including the hand dyed flowers! A real family heirloom, thank you, Ros

The quilt arrived this morning - it is beautiful. Martha loves the fairy fabric and thinks its so cosy on the underside.  An amazing amount of work must have gone into it - thank you so much.

Guided by Maggie we were able to chose the design of the quilt, the colours but most importantly Maggie was able to incorporate my almost 30 year old wedding dress into the design making the finished quilt totally unique to us, exceeding all our exceptions in terms of quality and craftsmanship. It is certainly a family heirloom that will be treasured for ever.

Stunning ideas - I'm so impressed and now full of inspiration!! Thank you.  Kay
