I’m weak for beautiful kids bedding and so my heart soared and sang when I was sent a whole load of stunning handmade quilts by Cecily Mae to check out – I nearly wept handing the package back to the postie!
Anyway, I digress. Dorset based Joanna, the creative dynamo behind Cecily Mae, is super talented at retro and vintage inspired one-of-a-kind loveliness. I love that she’s bold and brave with her colour palette mixing rich tones with popping brights, whimsy prints, and heart warming motifs. Aside from a fine line in quilts featuring kissing whales, tweeting birds, funky flowers, fish, and birds on a wire, she does divine papercuts which become artwork and cards, as well as stitched personal portraits, and playmats.
Quilts (70 X 90cm) start from Â£28, playmats (110 X 110 cm) from Â£36, pictures from Â£20, portraits Â£58 and cards are Â£2 each or 3 for Â£5. You can order some via her new Folksy store or direct with her via Cecily Mae.
