Hello and welcome! 

You may have come here after following along with me at the Miette Handmade blog or my old website, or perhaps you've done a search for handmade baby quilts and found yourself here. However you have arrived... welcome

My name is Joanna Francis and I created Miette Handmade after the birth of my son, Leo. I needed an outlet for my creativity, and something that would help ease a little the fog of new motherhood and so I began to sew. More accurately, I started piecing together bits of fabric I had collected over the years to create baby quilts. And so it has continued. Miette Handmade is a collection of baby quilts and blankets, cushions and other bits and pieces, made by me using beautiful fabrics. I don't use patterns, I just randomly piece and see what emerges. I love supporting local creatives and fabric designers and try to incorporate their work in my creations as much as possible. 

I sometimes have a little collection of cots quilts or doll quilts for sale - click here to go the Etsy page - but mostly I take commissions. So do get in touch if you’re interested or would like to know more. And I do also take photos and blog - very occasionally - about some of my other loves... family, good food, travel, language, photography and the odd bit of wine. 

You can also join me in the little squares on Instagram

 Thanks again for visiting.
