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.

getting wonky

Happy Friday everyone!

I haven't done a huge amount of sewing this week due to caring for our new puppy Jack Russell, Spot and taking dd to the dentist yesterday among the usual stuff!

I did manage to get my Hipbee block done for Jude this month!  The other ladies in the bee have produced beautiful versions in different colourways of this fun to make block.

The wonky friendship braid or Free pieced chevron is fun to make and quick to go together using this tutorial.  Here is my version using the lush fabrics Jude sent over.

I am also quite excited about joining in with Katy's Spinning stars quilt along which has a Flickr group and has been blogged by Katy here.  I am very keen to get my hands on some Field Study by Anna Maria Horner but we shall see what I use for this!  Still planning!
