Blue Quilt



I am keeping my teaching and lecture commitments to a minimum this year – my husband has made a good recovery (thanks for all the good wishes) and now wishes to spend as much time as possible at our home in Spain.    Bookings that were already confirmed for 2017 still stand.

2018 will mark a new chapter with much less travel than in previous years and only limited dates available.


Barbara’s particular speciality is traditional hand quilting & quilting design.  She has been teaching, writing, designing for more than 30 years, during which time she has encouraged & inspired quilters of all skill levels through her workshops, demonstrations & lectures.  Her first book “The Essential Quilter” (1993) is an established classic reference for hand quilters and her third book “Quilt It” (1999) is a standard reference for all quilters.  Barbara has six signature fabric collections to her credit and many of her quilting designs are available as stencils from Quilting Creations/Stensource International.

For many years Barbara has maintained a busy local, national & international teaching schedule which has included judging at all major UK shows, judging & teaching in the USA, Johannesburg & New Zealand, teaching in Dubai, Cairo, Abu Dhabi and the Netherlands. She has also taught several years at the prestigious International Quilt Festival in Houston and Harriet Hargrave’s Machine Quilting Celebration.
