What I do plan to do via this blog, (yes - there is an actual plan!), is to mix up all that's happening in the handmade ceramics studio with the latest updates on my new range of quilty things for the home, and add in a pinch of anything else interesting, crafty and creative.
Starting with traditional quilt block patterns; for me, the appeal of these age old designs is in their geometrical energy, their colour and vitality and all the history and culture associated with them. Oh yes, and I love their quirky individual names. I first started researching quilt-blocks years ago for my handmade ceramics, and I'm still finding it fascinating and informative.
So now, having already jumped off quilts and onto my pots, these lovely patterns have escaped even further - onto a new range of kitchen items and gifts. And best of all, only genuine vintage fabric prints have been used in each design.
You can see the complete collection in my new online shop www.cathydaniel.co.uk
