Contemporary quilting with Cassandra
Cassandra Ellis is quite the crafter. She makes contemporary quilts, beautiful handmade pieces patching individual segments of fabric together, like in the old days. Cassandra says the point of a quilt is to represent something that is ‘practical, precious and personal – an heirloom that would be passed down for generations.’
Plus, every quilt is completely individual and bespoke. Cassandra teaches at the Papered Parlour, where I had a sewing class
, but she also holds her own quilting sessions which you can read up about on her website
I love the idea of making something with your own hands that will last not just your lifetime, but your future family’s too. Cassandra’s photos (above) show that patchwork quilts work wonderfully in a contemporary home, without looking too predictably shabby chic (a look I’m tiring of) – and they remind me of this photo of Hoxton Hotel. See, quilting got cool.
