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.

Too long!

Hello everyone and sorry for my lack of blogging!  I had a tummy bug at the beginning of the week but I am feeling right as rain now thankfully!

I have a few exciting things to share with you today.

I took part in the third round of the Modern She Made Swap and received my lovely secret (not anymore) partner package this morning.

A gorgeous sewing  machine cover, large scraps! and zippers.  No excuses now about not having zippers to try a zippy pouch!

My second piece of exciting news is that I am part of a wonderful new charity bee organised by Lynne from Lily's Quilts.

I am sure many of you have heard of Siblings Together and possibly even contributed a quilt or block or two.  Last week Lynne put a shout out for anyone who wanted to help so I jumped at the chance to sign up and help. 

It is such a great cause and you can read more about the background behind this here.  I can't wait to get started!

Have a lovely weekend everyone and hopefully I will have my completed baby churn dash quilt top to show you in a few days!!
