Bowerbird Studio


Pillow Collection

Each pillow begins as a series of four blocks, hand pieced and hand-sewn variations of the “patchwork of the crosses” quilt template. 


From a collection of completed blocks, four that are in conversation with one another become a new composition that is appliquéd to a neutral background. The finished pillow cover measures nineteen inches square and looks beautiful as a stand-alone on a couch or chair or in combination with other pillows.


Apron Collection

Fine quality linen fabric transforms into three distinct lines of aprons, all of which are reversible and have crisscross straps that allow them to be slipped on and off over the head. Aprons are machine washable in warm or cool water and can be ironed. One size fits most.

  • See Warm & Cool Collection  featuring solid color aprons in warm or cool hues with appliquéd medallion accenting the front. Two pockets on the front side complete the design.


Zip Pouch Collection

One of a kind linen zip pouches created from repurposed pieces of Japanese linen fabric in three sizes and two colorways. Each pouch is lined in contrasting linen fabric and features an exterior zip pocket. 


Hand Carved Wood Spoons

Maple, cherry, and applewood are transformed into a series of one of a kind spoons, each lovingly carved by my husband. Each spoon bears the playful mark of the maker, guided by the idiosyncrasies of the wood.

Bowerbird Notecards

Bowerbird notecards make sending a note to friends and family a uniquely personal gift.

Each collection includes eight individual blank notecards with envelopes based upon the "patchwork of the crosses" quilt template; Cards measure 4.75" square and are digitally printed on fine felt weave paper.
