Lisa Watson is a true quilt maker and founder of By Lisa Watson, who, with her background in Fine Art Textiles, her reverence to Britain’s textile heritage and her passion for and commitment to quality, durability and authenticity cleverly recreates multi‐tonal, tactile, timeless pieces which are modern mixtures of both art and craft. Using British‐sourced materials, to honour the legacy of British textiles, Lisa captures the real essence of quilts, their practicality and decoration, form and function, in a contemporary manner. An authentic patchwork quilt is the quintessential heirloom. A passed‐down family fabric, draped over a bed or armchair, whether pristine or faded and a little ‘dog‐eared’, an original quilt is both a comfortingly familiar object and priceless in its connection with one’s past. Lisa has further developed her stunning range to include blankets, cushions and fabrics and we’re delighted to be welcoming Lisa to Simply Cheshire.
