Liberty Snowflakes Quilt

I wanted to showcase The Liberty Snowflakes Quilt that we have shown on Hochanda TV as it’s so beautiful.

Beautiful Quilt SOS Quilt

We’ve received the first beautiful Quilt SOS Quilt into the studio for our 2020 project.  It’s a completely stunning quilt which has so much detail within it.  It’s a quilt that is full of fun and interest and therefore perfect for a child.  It has been made by Kathryn Ross and was inspired by her daughters bedroom floor and by Arbury Hall.  The Quilt SOS project is now in its 5th year – later on this year we are taking the quilts to London to be given to the children and their mothers currently seeking refuge in the safe houses …
