HISTORY IN THIS MAKING For centuries, Staffordshire-ware dog and cat figurines have graced the mantels of the finest English homes. Today, there’s a modern take on them, thanks to Mandy Pattullo’s daughter, Alice, whose drawings inspired Mandy to adapt them for stitching. Whether spotted or floral, they have been appliquéd onto recycled fabrics for a vintage patchwork quilt surface. Each measures 45cm square. Here’s where you find out more: www.mandypattullo.co.uk.
