My Creative Space: Bespoke

by Kate on February 24, 2011

…is about me creating unique, one-of-a kind quilts. Quilts with character and a bit of personality.

I love making quilts but a girl can only have so many and when I am not making quilts for family and friends I will be listing them in the shop.

Pretty in Pink

Pretty in Pink has been made with 100% cotton fabric, organic cotton batting and backed with soft flannel.



The quilt is heavily quilted with free-form lines adding texture and interest. You can read about the beginnings of this quilt here.

Pop over to Kirst’s and see some more creative spaces.

Hi Barb,

Thanks so much. I have a few things on the go at the moment but if there is enough interest I can write up a tutorial.

so pretty.


36 Andrea February 25, 2011 at 7:19 am

So lovely, I so much prefer the quilts with personality – beautiful ones that aren’t trying to be a complex intensely squared/triangled patterned madness. I have a dream (yet to be realised) of making african quilts – quilts with african fabric. I have heaps stored up, but the project is on hold till September!


37 gret March 2, 2011 at 4:50 pm
