Sue is the face behind many so many beautiful projects. She loves creating quilts and associated thingies.
With each project she finds comfort in the beauty of hand worked creations.
It is no surprise that Sue started sewing at a very young age inspired by her mother who was a dressmaker and fine hand embroiderer.
In the beginning her patchwork journey began as a “Mad machine piecer” but later found her passion in handwork. Her forte now is English paper piecing, needleturn appliqué and fine hand quilting.
Sue’s quilting interests made a natural progression towards creating her own designs and teaching others. She went on to open her own business “Patchwork with Busyfingers”. It travelled along well until she came up with a design that propelled her business into the unexpected realms of chaos which was very exciting times. The “Hexagon Bag” pattern turned her life upside down and for 5 years Sue and her family lived and breathed Quilt as you go Hexagons. The bag became the launching pad for many great things.
People were hungry for designs made from QAYG hexagons and Sue found herself filling those needs as she came up with many and varied designs. Her book Hexagons from the Guest House contains many beautiful and decorative designs:
