Amelia Saint George uses a wide variety of fabrics, ranging from silk and cotton to felt, fleece and velvet. In particular, however, she takes great delight in re-using fabrics from around the house – outgrown clothes, old patterned sheets or discarded men's shirts, for example, giving them new lease of life in the form of attractive and original items for the home.

Some of the projects are quick and easy to do, others more time-consuming – for example, a charming baby's puff-patchwork quilt that is light, warm and durable, a set of plain white towels transformed by adding brightly coloured felt appliqué shapes inspired by Matisse designs. Projects include:
• Baby's puff-patchwork quilt
• Geometric patchwork cushions
• Silk patchwork cushions
• Tumbling blocks patchwork tablecloth
• Sumptuous silk and velvet patchwork throw
• Appliquéd bed linen
