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.

Sun !

Hello everyone!  Hope you all had a fantastic bank holiday weekend. Especially those of you that got sun!  We didn't up here but today we do.  It is a truly, lovely Spring day.

Today I completed day 10 of my new workout wearing some new trainers hubby treated me to.  Although today I wasn't too great at the workout as I was kind of recovering from a tummy bug from the weekend but nevertheless I did it!  I have never ate healthier also!

Last week I was working on a custom order for a lovely lady in New Zealand.  I was also trying to get this baby quilt top finished up.  My baby churn dash!  I still have 30 odd blocks to do but I am going to push forward this week and hopefully complete it!

I am loving how my Hipbees quilt is looking too.  I made the long drawn out decision to handquilt her and I am so glad I did.  

So that is me and what I have been up to over the last week or so.  Hope to keep more up to date this week!
