I’ve been creating quilts since 1996, first in Ireland and since 2007 in Granada, Spain. Almost from the beginning I dyed my own fabrics. I like to make quilts using classic patterns but with a contemporary feel due to their colour. I often use recyled cloth to find unusual prints. My aim is to make something unique, beautiful and functional.
Recently I have become an avid ”Big Stitch” quilter – I’m now producing my own range of hand-dyed pearl cotton threads which you can find in my online shop.
In the last couple of years I have begun to dye and experiment with natural dyes from my own garden and from the countryside around the seaside town where I live. This is having a great effect on my work on many levels.
