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.

Lily's Quilts
Today is the 1st of October and it is Fresh Sewing day over at Lily's Quilts! Why not pop over and take a look at the awesomeness she has been making over the last month. 
Here is a little mosaic of what I have been making in the month of September. A finished table runner and some new items. Things have been a little slow over the last month with daughter starting primary school. However, now I have heaps of free (lol) time I am able to finally get cracking on some items for my Etsy shop!

Row 2 has a table topper and September's fab Hipbees block given by Judith.
Row 3 - some Field Study I was gifted and little hexie brooches in my Etsy shop!
Row 4 stars galore!  Little matching coasters for the table topper and a finished Autumnal table runner in beautiful Loulouthi fabric. 
Row 5 -  a text print coffee cosy and another Hipbees block for Jan!.
