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.

Brit Quilt Swap 3!

Well the shipping window for the Brit Quilt Swap 3 is underway and I posted my package on Friday.  I have been informed by my partner that her mini has been received ( plus extras) and is loved!  Phew!

Today the door knocked just as I was beginning to sew and Colin brought me my large parcel.  He laughed at the anticipation in my face as I unpacked the package.

This is what I received -

my mini!

and this -

a zipper pouch which full of these -

lovely fabric scraps lots of them! 

I was honoured to receive my beautiful items from the lovely Jan at Isijem who incidentally is a new found fellow bee in the Hipbees!  

I am very happy and excited about hanging my mini above my sewing machine!   I have attached my little Hipbee charm to my zipper pouch too!
