My name is Collette and I am a quilter from Scotland. I have been a patchworker and quilter for over a decade and love to share what I have been making here.

WIP Wednesday

Good morning!

Today I am linking up with the lovely Lee and the others at Freshly Pieced for work in progress Wednesday.  I am also linking up with the Quiltsy team blog by the quiltsy team from etsy.

Here are a few photos of what I have been up to this week.  I don't have enough for a mosaic!

I made two, YES two bricks for my Jacob's quilt following the Moda Bakeshop pattern, Follow the Pezzy brick Road.  I feel I may have done too much :)

I was shattered the night I started the cutting for these and had an argument with myself and the pattern, convinced that I was right and the pattern was wrong! You know what the outcome was right?

Worked on this present for a friend's wee girl last night.  She is 5 at the end of the month so we thought some girly personalised bunting would be nice!

 I love this!! My fave item at the moment.  Beach huts are everywhere and bunting but I had to try out my own design.

I just have to handstitch the binding to the back and wash and done.  A table runner or just something pretty to look at!  I will be listing this in my shop once it is completed.

I embroidered the sunrays and quilted the huts and sunshine.

I wanted the huts to look wooden so tried a deliberately organic wavy stitch to hopefully achieve the effect of wood grain :) .

I am very pleased with this I must admit!

Some Anna Maria Horner fabric waiting to be cut up and made into something pretty.  Not sure what yet, a table runner or quilt???? Hmmmm.


  1. I really love your beach huts- and that tiny bunting is just darling, I am sure it will sell really quickly for you!

  2. That Pezzy quilt will be nice.

  3. Your beach huts are so much fun and the tiny bunting on it is a nice touch! I love the way that you have quilted them.

  4. That Peezy fabric is great. Love the beach houses.

  5. I love the beach houses - looks great with the combo of quilting and embroidery!

  6. Oooo some great things on that list! The patterns are never's best not to argue with them...=D

  7. Pezzy will be great, I did get a bit tired of it sewing all that sashing but it's such a fun pattern! I LOVE the beach huts :)


I love to read comments on blogs so please feel free to talk away!
