Devi's two artworks Fractured I and II are absolutely stunning. I feel so lucky to have secured them. This isn't 'just' quilting but art (though quilting is an art, of course) and I can't wait to hang them on my wall. Besides which, they also arrived within days, carefully and beautifully packed. Photos to follow when they are properly installed and I'm glad she is making more in this series, so that other people will be able to get as much pleasure from them as I do mine. What a talent!
Devi's tote bags in stunning combinations and original designs are a complete treat. They are stylish, eye-catching, fun and funky, light, vegan and washable--one could not ask for more in a bag!
Devi … a massive thank you ! I absolutely love my very very very beautiful heirloom king sized quilt! ( my daughters can fight over that one! )
I found you on google in the yucky miserable time of lockdown, and how lucky was I to have chosen you .. you and I had a connection! You were ( are ) a star at reading what I wanted and I have a quilt that not only matched my colour scheme but also my life! It was such a privilege to work with you every step of the way! Who knew half the stuff that went into a quilt … if I had bought one from a shop I would not have thought twice about the work involved. Your work is meticulous. My husband is an artist and he showed me how perfect it was from an artists eye ! My 5 year old granddaughter gasped ( true story! ) when she took it out it’s lovely home made bag … and as I type this my heart feels full and my eyes have tears! It’s so lovely Devi I couldn’t have imagined anything better ..
So gush over let’s get on with the new commission ! Lots of fondness to you x
Devi was amazing - I purchased one of her beautiful lap quilts but needed an extra piece of material sewn on as part of a 70th birthday present. I explained what I needed done to Devi and asked her how I could do it. She helped every step of the way and was so helpful. She was able to sew the extra material on and the final result is just beautiful. I would definitely recommend Devi for her professionalism and for her ability to understand requests and act quickly on them. It was a delight working with her and she is a truly talented individual.
Devi has made me 2 beautiful cushion covers to match my sofa. She sent me samples to choose from and took the time to discuss and advise me on the colour ways, the buttons even which inners to buy.
When they arrived I was so excited as they were perfect. I can highly recommend to anyone thinking of having any item made by Devi. She is a perfectionist.
Absolutely thrilled with Dorset Patchworks. Devi worked with me the whole way, from selecting fabric samples to patchwork shape and size. Her communication with me was really excellent and I was also really impressed with how quickly she produced my bespoke quilt. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dorset Patchworks and hope to commission another quilt myself with her one day.
I recently bought a ‘Non- Dinosaur’ Dinosaur cot quilt from Dorset Patchworks and I’m really really pleased with the quality and design of the product. It was difficult to choose from such a lovely selection of quilts. They’re all exquisitely handcrafted and will make a very special gift. I can not recommend this small cottage industry enough to any prospective or interested party! Jane N
I spontaneosly asked Devi to make me some bunting for my camper van.
They were ready in a few days.
Truely magnificent, very professional and just the job.
I've ordered multiple items from Devi's shop for myself and as gifts. Her work is meticulous and she has a fantastic eye for color, pattern and design. The totes are so practical but bring fun and style to the mix. I get a lot of compliments on mine and my family here in America has loved getting them as gifts. I love my apron, which I think has an updated vintage vibe, my zippered scissor pouch which is so practical, and perhaps most of all, my beautiful and incredibly cheery tea cozy. Items arrive as promised and beautifully packaged.
Thanks Devi for the beautiful, happy work and shop!
A group of us are celebrating big birthday's this year so were looking for a special gift. We took a few ideas from the website and some guidance from Devi on colours and she has made a lovely really unique Tote. Perfect - Thank you Devi she will love it.
I ordered a scissor pouch for a friends’ birthday. It was beautifully made and the colour combinations Devi uses are so bright and cheery. My friend loved it. Thank you

I just received an incredible tote in browns and black from Devi' company. It is beautifully made and packaged well. I live in the USA so it had to come a long way. I would recommend her lovely work and she responsed quickly to my inquiries. Thank you.
I recently ordered a lampshade from Dorset Patchworks and am delighted with it as it looks even better than it did in the photo. The packaging was very protective and it arrived quickly - well worth paying for the p&p. I am so pleased with the lampshade that I will probably order some other ones in the future.
Treated my favourite teapot to a Mid Mod Circles in Red Tea Cozy......! Looks great and has had some lovely compliments from friends round to enjoy a cuppa! Thank you!
Self indulgent purchase of new oven gloves for our caravan, even though there's no oven :) The yellow and grey colour scheme fits in perfectly and the combination of stripes outside and spots inside gives the gloves a real lift. Thanks Devi for a beautifully finished, practical and delightful addition to our caravan adventures...
I have just received the 2 bespoke gifts I ordered from Devi. Firstly they were beautifully wrapped but more importantly they were perfectly made. Devi helped me through the choosing process, helping with colour options &styles for a tote bag and oven gloves and always willing to answer any questions I had. If you are looking for a really special, unique and handmade gift I can really recommend Devi.
I was given the most beautiful home-made quilt for Christmas.
My Husband had asked Devi to create an individual patchwork. He chose the collection of fabric and Devi checked with him, advising on the design, throughout the process.
I am thrilled to have such a unique present and one which I shall treasure.
Devi is very talented and the quality of the finished product is exceptional - I would definitely recommend Dorset Patchworks for a special gift.
My wife and I received an original Dorset Patchworks quilt as a wedding present and we love it! It's obviously made with incredible care and attention to detail, all the way down to a hand embroidered message to commemorate our big day. It's something we'll treasure for a lifetime and takes pride of place on our bed at home. Thanks Dorset Patchworks!

Dear Devi, we can't thank you enough for the wonderful wedding quilt you made for Bryn and Catherine's festival themed wedding day. From the care and attention to the choice of fabric, pattern and colour (where you steered us gently in the right direction) to the details of the quilt and the hand embroidered label with their names and wedding date proudly emblazoned, we simply couldn't have asked for more. On the wedding day itself we set up their tent with fairy lights, bunting, illuminated B&C letters and accessories (plus a morning after survival kit) with your quilt in pride of place on their airbed! It looked simply beautiful and perfectly set the romantic and hand crafted mood we set out to create. Glamping doesn't come close!! We'll let the new Mr and Mrs Robinson tell their own story in due course but you couldn't have made the process smoother or more friendly. We'll be back - just need to think up lots of occasions to remember with more stunning Dorset Patchworks quilts :) With thanks and every best wish for the future, Frances and Martin.
I asked Devi to make a quilt for a cousin in Australia who was expecting her first child. I asked her mother as to what colours her nursery was decorated in and if there was anything in particular that she liked. On receiving the advice on the colour scheme and that she liked foxes I e-mailed Devi the colours. I then paid Devi a visit where we searched for materials together finally deciding upon a beautiful fox fabric and contrasting fabrics to go with it. Devi set to work and showed me a sample of what the finished product would look like before going on to finish a beautiful quilt. The Australian couple had no idea that they would be receiving this gift and were delighted when it arrived - immediately sending back to England photographs of baby Reuben lying on it. I was very impressed with Devi's service she was extremely helpful and the finished quilt was of a very high standard. I would certainly use her services again.
I asked Devi to make a quilt for my God-daughter's baby girl, having seen a few photos of some she'd already made. I gave her an idea of the themes and colours I wanted and she came up with a few suggestions to help me make my choice. It was all done by email with plenty of photos showing different layout possibilities etc. After I'd made my choices, Devi emailed another photo showing the patchwork all in place before sewing it together, to make sure I was happy with it. The quilt arrived within a couple of weeks, beautifully made and looking even better than it did in the photos. My God-daughter is absolutely delighted with the quilt and says it's one of the best gifts she's received and will become an heirloom. That says it all!
The quilts I commissioned were absolutely beautiful. They were made for the birth of my niece and nephew and were perfect for this. I was encouraged to contribute to the creative process and this made them feel a very personal gift. Thank you Devi your talent and kindness is deeply appreciated.
