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.

experiments and more free motion quilting

So I haven't done a huge amount of sewing over the last week or so with back to school and first day of primary for one of the kids.

I have been trying out a wee experiment though!  You know when you get one of those ideas that you just have to get on with that will not wait???? Or am I just weird and impatient?

I have been inspired by all the geometric prints and paintings out there at the moment -

This is by Twoems and is listed in their wonderful etsy shop here

So I am planning on recreating something of a mix between both patterns but in fabric eeeeek!! am I mad ....... First thing I need to do is e-mail Twoems to ask if this is ok.  This is purely for my pleasure and experimentation!.  I have made a tentative start.  If it works I want to give it to the artist! 

I have also been continuing with free motion quilting this table runner!    I am getting there and taking on board all of Jude's great advice!  It is getting the time at the moment but I will perservere!  Thinking of a burgundy binding or light yellow or pink???? 

Hope everyone had a great weekend.  I am off to get busy.
