Florence  Sometimes I do things other than sew...but not very often. You can find my blog, as well as my English paper piecing patterns, at:


Inspired by some maps that appeared in a beautiful quilt made in 1797, I made my own map of the UK from Liberty Tana lawns. Halfway through making it, my dad revealed to me that the map I was working from was about twenty years out of date and that boundaries have since been redefined (a fun moment, for sure!), but it was so absorbing to make that I still really love it, despite its many inaccuracies and idiosyncrasies :) More details on my blog, if you’d like to see (link in profile). #libertytanalawn #libertyprint #machineapplique #map #maps #mapoftheuk #patchworkmap

@zephyrskies tagged me to share what’s on my sewing table (thanks, Irina 😊). It’s been more of a foliage kind of day though, as I headed off into the countryside to make Christmas wreaths with friends. On the way home, I dropped in at my parents’ and donated mine for their door - modelled with my lovely dad, as I had to whizz off before they could put it up. Note his divine shoes - I don’t think they’re Liberty, but I’m not sure they could be any more gorgeous even if they were :) Tagging @mrssrock4t, @veryberryhandmade and @quiltingonthego to peep at what’s on their sewing tables, if they’d like to share. x

I’ve been stocking up on juicy solids for my next project. These are all from @duckeggthreads :)

I just scrolled back on IG and realised that on 30th November last year, I posted a picture of this block when it was a wip...and then realised that I still haven’t posted a photo of it finished. It’s one of the blocks that I made for the V&A’s new book, Patchwork and Quilting. I gave a quick talk about my blocks at the book launch last weekend - the papers I was holding up shook uncontrollably 🙄, so that part wasn’t an entirely relaxing experience, but it didn’t detract from how lovely it was to hear the other contributor’s talks, see their beautiful work, finally visit @vhaberdashery’s gorgeous shop in person (where the launch was held) or how fun it was to meet so many lovely fellow makers. Ps. the third picture is stolen from The Village Haberdashery’s feed as my phone didn’t come out of my bag all afternoon, so I forgot to take any photos. #vammaker #epp #englishpaperpiecing #libertytanalawn #tanalawn #libertyprint #handsewing

More little woven orbs - there’s a post about them on my blog, written last week (link in profile). #karenbarbé #miniatureweaving

Tidying up and fleetingly wishing I lived in the middle of nowhere so that I could leave these Liberty scraps outside for the birds, without fear of them blowing all over neighbouring gardens. Can you imagine what a beautiful nest these would make?! 💛🐦

I went on such a glorious walk this morning - no filter, it really was this bright and lovely. The kind of day that makes your heart feel like it’s risen a few inches higher in your chest (in a good way, that doesn’t result in a medical emergency/inability to eat later due to heart being lodged in throat). #autumn #autumnwalks #dscolour #iloveautumn

There’s an interview over on my blog with author & quilter, Tracy Chevalier, all about the beautiful book she’s produced in collaboration with the charity Fine Cell Work, who teach prisoners how to stitch. The book features ‘The Sleep Quilt’, which was hand-sewn by stitchers incarcerated in UK prisons. You can buy it now through their Kickstarter, which I’ve linked to on my blog. @tracychevalierwriter @finecellwork

This is one of my English paper pieced quilt blocks, which appears in the V&A’s newly-published book, ‘Patchwork and Quilting: A Maker’s Guide’. You can read more about the book (and see my other blocks) over on my blog. #vammaker #epp #englishpaperpiecing #libertyfabric #libertytanalawn #tanalawn

Sunday afternoon stitching, inspired by @karenbarbe’s beautiful book. Scroll left for more 👀. #karenbarbé #miniatureweaving

A beautiful goldfish, designed and stitched by my super-talented friend, Tabitha (@mrssrock4t), who brought him over to live with me when she visited :) Where is the orange heart when I need it? 🍊 🍑 🥕

Last weekend, celebrating my mother-in-law’s 70th birthday: we haven’t stayed anywhere with the sea right on our doorstep before, so a few of us raced out of bed at dawn to go for a walk (scroll left). I love how dramatically a seascape changes over the course of a day.
