Jane Mitchell – QuiltmakerSeptember 2, 2022 |
Jane Mitchell is an artisan quiltmaker with a passion for all things handmade. She studied the History of Art & Design in the UK and about 10 years ago turned her academic love of the arts into a practical one. Jane designs and makes baby quilts, cot quilts, christening quilts, summer quilts, throws and bed quilts. She is an improv quilter and each quilt is original and hand quilted with love. Jane works with high quality cottons and linens but also enjoys recycling fabrics such as cotton sheets and clothes. Each quilt can be customised with a hand sewn name and/or date.
Jane also makes memory quilts with fabrics that are distinctly personal to the quilt’s recipient. These are perfect for preserving treasured memories of people, events, accomplishments and places. Consider keeping your children’s outgrown clothes and have them made into a beautiful bed quilt they can keep forever and hand down to their own children. You can see examples of Jane’s work on Instagram. Jane is happy to discuss your ideas without any obligation to commission a quilt.
Jane is one of the 9 contributors to #LivingTheDream: Expat Life Stripped Bare, an anthology of personal and powerful stories. Nine women share the emotional and practical realities of the challenges of expat life away from ‘home’.
Jane lives with her three children and cat Morris in a village on the Maresme coast, just north of Barcelona City. She is also Partner and Head of Content at MumAbroad.
What we like about them
In their own words
I’m drawn to fabric and textiles wherever I go and it’s really hard not to buy beautiful new fabrics at every opportunity. But nothing beats being given a bag of what appear to be random items of clothing and textiles, which hold sentimental value to the owner, and create them into a a soft and warm quilt, to snuggle up in, celebrating an important milestone, special event, or the life of a loved one.” Jane
