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 there!

Hello everyone!  Can't believe it is Wednesday already and I haven't blogged yet!  Sorry folks.  It is almost Quilt Market too.  Looking forward to lots of photos.

I am still at my 30 day shred and healthy eating plan.  Today I done day 15 at level 2 ( third day on this level) and worked myself hard.  Talk about sweaty bettty!  I am getting fitter and stronger though and it feels good.  I am so glad I began this journey and will be carrying on when I get past 30days for sure as I have a lot of fat to lose!

I am finally at the quilting stage of my latest baby quilt.  I am doing a kind of triple cross hatchy pattern to emulate the plaid pattern.  I love the softness of the colours in this.

I am still beavering away on the hand quilting in my beautiful Hipbees quilt.  I love how this is looking!

Bee blocks will be the next job this week so I will share these with you once I make them! Lol.

Have a great Wednesday!
