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.

embroidery and hexies

Hello all!  Over the weekend I did a little sewing and planning.  I have a commission for a baby quilt which I am pondering at the moment, a swap item to complete and some other bits and bobs!

For the baby quilt I shall be using these colours -

My embroidery is beginning to take shape for the swap -

I basted 58 of these little hexagons for a secret item I am trying out ssshhhh....................I am unsure how it will work out! 

I hope to return on Wednesday with the beginnings of the baby quilt!
