Sally Holman is an inspiring textile artist who creates embellished patchwork quilts and patchwork scenes. Her love for stitching comes from the landscapes and seascapes around her North Norfolk home. Over the years, we have been lucky enough to have her hold classes and workshops at Tudor Rose Patchwork. We also stock every book she currently sells.

In 2015, Sally Holman has just released a brand new book “Creating a Scene for a Patchwork Project” at the Festival of Quilts. The new book contains patterns for eight Landscapes or Seascape Projects. The patterns combine the creativity and challenge of making and designing patchwork projects. The projects in the book use a whole variety of techniques including foundation piecing, flat and textured, block and English patchwork, applique, quilting and embroidery. If you didn’t get a chance to pick one up at the festival you can buy them from us online by clicking here.

Before her latest book, one of Sally’s most popular books was the “Making an Embellished Sampler Quilt”. It was written as the culmination of many years of Sally teaching countless students variations of this design! The quilt featured in this book takes in the best bits of all these plus a few new ideas. This is a creative quilt and the choice of colour and fabric style along with each individual quilter’s interpretation and selection of embroidery and embellishment will make each quilt very original. Alongside those pictures you will see a completed English embellished sampler quilt made by one of our customers, Cherry Roomes. She used the making an embellished sampler quilt book and the He still loves me fabrics by Benartex.
