a patch of love

Living on a vineyard surrounded by magpies and sparrows is the home of Kathryn Elizabeth Brain, were she has been secretly creating beautiful patchwork quilts.

Maggie and Sparrow Quilts are made in the traditional method, with time and much love using modern and vintage inspired fabrics. Each quilt is finished with delicately hand stitched edging and intricate patterning.

Exquisitely made, elegant and whimsical, each quilt is unique and 100% cotton - a treasure to be passed on through the generations. Visit Maggie and Sparrow at Magnolia Square Tiny and Small in May at Brighton Town Hall. Kathryn sent these words to share;

To place upon your little bed.
It's not an heirloom-just to keep,
But to lay upon as you count sheep.
Or perhaps the floor's the perfect place
for a doll and teddy picnic space.
This quilt can be anything you can dream-
From superman's cape to the robe of a queen.
Pretend you’re on a magic carpet ride
Or snuggle on the couch when your feeling tired.
