Completed Geisha Quilt

Geisha Quilting Project

At the end of October, a lady called Margaret Bradly and her husband called into the shop with a wonderful surprise.

The story begins back in August 2014 when Margaret and her husband came to our stand at the Festival of Quilts and they saw our then new Block of the Month “Geishas”.

He said to her “Why are you not making that?” 

She said “Because you haven’t bought it for me yet”

I found the joining up form and the rest is history.  Over the last four years Margaret has caught up with me at shows or in the shop keeping me up to date on progress.  As she has sewn, she has played with the design, making it her own, including changing the fans to include some gold lace she made herself!

So recently on a Saturday the completed quilt arrived in the shop and WOW it looks awesome.

From my point of view as the designer and maker of our shop sample it is wonderful to think someone firstly liked your design enough to start the project and then fell in love with it enough to add a bit of themselves into it.

All of our patchwork/applique kits and Block of the Months are designed in house and therefore are unique to us and Margaret’s is unique to her.

Thank you so much, Margaret.
