Helen's inspiration: "I dropped my pin box, not for the first time, but the scattered sparkle of metallic slivers across the patchwork I was working on, and the table underneath, gave rise to an idea. By the time all the pins were picked up, I had designed this block. It is rarely that quick, however sometimes inspiration comes from the most unexpected places. Always worth keeping your eyes, and your mind, open."
In the designer's words: Helen Butcher discusses the importance of colour, tone and weave in choosing fabric for her patchwork designs.
