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.


Hello all!

We are having a lovely Saturday here for a change.  Lovely May weather today ( pouring of rain on Thursday however!) and the kids were at a church fete with Gran and Papa.  They got tonnes of stuff from the jumble sale!  It was like Christmas again when they came home!   We all had lunch together too at the very handy cafe two doors down from us!  

I just finished these for my Etsy shop last night and this morning while the kids were out.  I am in love with chevrons I must say.

only £2.00!! it has never been used.  Not a tent a football goal! 

Also thinking about purchasing this book.  You may have heard of it...............

Zakka Style: 24 Projects Stitched with Ease to Give, Use & Enjoy (Design Collective)

I keep seeing projects from it and sew alongs and raves about it so I think I may finally give in!  Susan from A Canadian Abroad has just about convinced me to get it!

Wishing everyone a lovely weekend ! x
