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.

Work in progress Wednesday

Hello!  Today I am linking up with the Quiltsy team blog and Freshly Pieced for Work In Progress Wednesday.

Quiltsy WiP

I have been mainly finishing projects over the last week.

I finally finished the binding on this runner!  Lucy you will be glad to hear!

Finally managed this little Cathedral window pincushion using this excellent tutorial and made as a gift for my secret swap partner.  

Did some more work on my secret partner swap mini quilt.  Still to add hand quilting. 

I also made this cute little needlebook with hand stitching!  

And finally, I am currently in the midst of cutting up this gorgeous chevron to make into some stock for my Etsy shop.  Coasters and a cafetiere cozy to replace one I sold last week. 

Thanks for looking!
