My name is Laura and I'm 36 years old. I joined the London branch of the Guild a year ago, but have recently moved to Yorkshire. I have been patchworking and quilting for about ten years. Although my mum sews, knits and quilts beautifully, I never formally learnt from her and am completely self-taught. I love colour and am trying my hand at designing my own quilts now. I entered my first quilt, a crazy quilt inspired by a visit to Petra in Jordan, for the Festival of Quilts 2016.
