About Patchmaker Quilts

 

Hello!  Welcome to Patchmaker. 

I'm  Maggie, an Indie Maker from Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley.  Let me tell you a wee bit about myself.  I've followed many paths in life, from classical pianist to tow truck driver, with stops at school teacher, kennel owner, and warehouse supervisor, and I must admit that the older I get, the more unconventional I become!  (Are you a fan of Netflix's "Grace and Frankie"?  Definitely more Frankie than Grace, but with Saul's taste in music!)

But the one thing that has always been constant is my love of quilts.  I started quilting at age 4, and haven't stopped yet.  The more complex the design, the better.  I stick to pieced quilts, because my hand applique is . . . . . well . . . .awful! 

These days, quilting is my full time passion - with side trips into knitting, hand dyeing yarn, crochet, and embroidery.  As my blog posts always say, my mission statement would be "Make Stuff.  Be Happy".  

You are welcome to contact me with any questions  or to request a special bespoke item.  I hope that you will visit often.  Patchmaker quilts may also be found on Ebay, by entering "Patchmaker Quilts" in the search bar.

Make Stuff.   Be Happy.

This waterfront belongs to friends.  They let me visit anytime . . . how great is that!

Blue Rocks, Nova Scotia

Digby Harbour - famous for their scallops - and about an hour away.

(Only we have better scallops down here, but you have to know where to go, so talk to a local if you visit, and mention the words "Crow's Nest".  Shhhhhhh, don't tell anybody.)
