Luxury Keepsake Patchwork Memory Quilts - Vintage and Floral London
Handmade Limited Edition Luxury Keepsake Quilts are behind the brand Vintage and Floral London, which was started by artisan quilter Jennifer Campbell Kirk.
Making Memory Quilts were a life saver for Jennifer, as they became creative therapy after she lost both her parents in quick succession. With the help of her American mother in law she started making patchwork quilts which saw her sewing for up to 8-9 hours a day.
Now quilting is her lifeline and she loves to create beautiful inspiring quilts for others as bespoke customised commissions, working on other memory quilts to commemorate special moments in a person’s life. From baby cloths quilts to wedding signature quilts, Jennifer has it all covered and even offers consultations in Regent Street London for those who have a design project in mind.
The Vintage and Floral limited edition range of handmade quilts offer the discerning buyer something truly special. Each quilt design is one of a kind and individually handmade on order with only 9 being made in the design range at any one time, making them wonderful functional collectors heirloom pieces too.
The Vintage and Floral London handmade quilts are inspired by historical quilt collections, traditions, techniques and patterns dating from 1700’s through to the 1900’s. Jenifer’s passion is researching the archives for ideas that she adapts for modern living that will tie in with many home interior projects.
By using a fusion of sewing machine stitching with traditional hand quilting methods, Jennifer is able to combine a number of quilting techniques, choosing to work with natural materials such as cotton, linen, silk, wool and bamboo. Jennifer loves the fact she can use traditional techniques in her quilting work, passed down to her by her late mother-in-law, just as the knowledge and skills of patchwork quilting was historically passed down through the generations from one woman to another. Jennifer also passes on her knowledge, skill and learning to others by teaching her own patchwork and quilting methods.
Vintage and Floral London are known for their unique use of fabrics, personalisation and elegant design. Jennifer’s quilts can be found in private homes and she has worked on many commercial commissions with interior designers too. Personalisation through monogramming in a number of ways is available and Jennifer’s designs and techniques are influenced by geometric shapes, colour, a sense of fun, nostalgia and shaker simplicity.
