Have you wondered who makes the quilts? Which team member creates wonderful collages? And who loves nothing better than to bake cakes?
Each week we will be interviewing a member of Team Millie Moon, and all of the answers will be revealed!
|Rachel loves to bake... and quilt!|
I had needlework lessons at school when I was growing up. They weren't very inspiring, and the projects were mostly pretty horrid. But it must have sparked something in me, as I started to make things at home. I borrowed my Mum's sewing machine, and made clothes. I remember, I must have been about 14, and I used to lay dresses onto fabric and cut out pieces. I didn't know what I was doing, but I enjoyed it.
I then had a break for quite a few years before picking up my sewing needle again, about 8 years ago, when I had my first child.
2) What sorts of things do you like to make?
Cakes! I adore baking... Oh, sorry, did you mean sewing?
I mostly make quilts. I love combining fabric for specific projects - making gifts for friends and family. I rarely sew for myself, and I lack the precision needed for dressmaking!
3) What gadget could you not live without having?
|Rachel made this quilt for her niece|
4) Who inspires you to create?
At the moment I'm having a hard time holding myself back from the new Aneela Hoey Little Apples layer cakes. They are absolutely gorgeous! I think they would make a wonderful quilt for a child or an adult. I'm also a big fan of anything Scandinavian. I adore the Tilda fabric range - such simple beauty.
Rachel also looks after the Millie Moon Twitter account (@MillieMoonShop), so do say hello and share pictures of what you've been making either on our Facebook group, or on Twitter.
