I've been sewing since I could hold a needle, making my own clothes, soft furnishings and even my wedding dress ... until I discovered patchwork and quilting about 25 years ago. Now I hardly ever make clothes!

Many of you know that in 2015, I had an idea for a challenge quilt for my local groups of friends. It was simple: make a quilt block every day for a year to build a sampler quilt. I thought maybe a dozen people would make the quilt. I created a Facebook page … and next thing I knew, quilters from all over the world were interested in my quilt! The 365 Challenge was born! At the end of 2019, there are over 30,000 subscribers … and the list is still growing.

The success of the 365 Challenge gave me the courage to design and send my patchwork patterns out into the world. My little business is that dream come true. But it is about so much more than quilts! For me, the magical part of the 365 Challenge was working on a project with like-minded people, sharing our ups and downs, and making amazing friends from all over the world. So, my catch cry is …

Make Quilts: Make Friends

My aim is to bring you projects through which we can recapture the magic of the 365 Challenge, work together and make great friends along the way.

Frequently Asked Questions


When does the course start and finish?
The quilt starts 1 January every year. Each day, you will discover a new block; completing the blocks is entirely self-paced. If you are a beginner, I recommend starting in the first three months, as the blocks get progressively more difficult. However you are welcome to jump in at any time! Be sure to download the files as you go, as they will only be available for 3 months every year, to maintain the element of surprise that was such a big part of the 365 Challenge in its first year.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
