About

A little bit about me..

SkinnyMalinkyQuilts was founded in 2014 by award winning printmaker Lucy Engels. She creates luxury home ware that is known for it’s colourful sophistication and high quality. Every quilt is unique and original using only the best quality fabrics and wadding.  They are machine pieced and quilted, with each being finished by hand.

” I have always been creative and studied fine art, printmaking. Since leaving art school I continued to make, mainly knitting and crocheting.  In 2013 after becoming an Auntie for the first time I wanted to make a special gift for my first nephew.  Something he could use every day and keep forever. A Quilt!  And so a passion for making quilts was realised.

I embraced the process which I found was unexpectedly similar to printmaking. It has to be exact, layers create the final quilt, texture can be added to create dimension.  I love being able to use amazing fabric lines in my work, playing with a sophisticated palette whilst enjoying bold combinations.

I also screen print my own limited edition mini collections of fabric to use in my home ware.  My pieces are as individual as the people I make them for and I strive to create high quality heirlooms that can be enjoyed for years to come.”

  1. While I know nothing about quilting per say, I certainly can appreciate the artistry and beauty of what your are creating. Its funny how life often gets in the way of our passions, however we always seem to in some way get back to our creative roots. I wish you all the best!
