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.

2 finishes in a week!

You can tell I have had some free time this week to get on with some shop sewing and gift sewing!

First up is a basket I have made using Pink Penguin's awesome basket tutorial for my mummy.  This will be posted tomorrow with a card for Mother's day.

On Monday I started piecing this patchwork wonky star wondering where it would go.  It became a cushion cover with envelope closure at the back.  So easy to make using this tutorial.  Of course I had to make it a patchwork cushion and quilted.  I love the texture this grid style quilting adds to it.  You just want to touch it!

I am delighted with how it turned out and have put it in my etsy shop for sale.  I can see more of these cushions in my future. 

Off to catch up on some lovely blogs now and then I should get on with sewing some more camera cases!
