Welcome to The Quilted Crow
Owners, Leonie Bateman and Deirdre Bond-Abel, welcome you to their 'nest', a beautiful old sandstone church, built in 1865.
Affectionately known as 'The Quilted Crow Girls', Leonie and Deirdre have been designing for many years under their design name 'Quilted Crow Girls Designs'. Specialising in wool applique, their pattern range is extensive, with well over 50 designs to choose from. They are the co-authors of the best selling book by Martingale, "Elegant Quilts, Country Charm" and both are eagerly awaiting the release of their second book in August 2014 titled "Country Elegance".
A fabric range will debut later in the year with Marcus Brothers Fabrics, a New York based company.
Both 'Crows' travel domestically and internationally teaching their unique style of wool applique and they love nothing more than seeing people become addicted to this beautiful medium. Inside the pages of 'The Quilted Crow' you are bound to find something that will tempt you, whether it be a large quilt or a small table runner, there is something for everyone.
