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.

A finish!

Remember these?

They came flying through my door made by my lovely friends in our Hipbees quilting bee.  I sent them my precious Field Study fabric and they returned many gorgeous blocks like this. 

Well yesterday I stitched the last stitch of hand binding, popped her in the washing machine ( with a colour catcher just in case!)  and line dried her.  

Thank you so much to all my Hipbee buddies for helping me turn Field Study into a beautiful quilt all for me.  This is the first quilt I have ever made just purely for me!

Even the dog tried to get in on this one!  My eyes are all squinty in this one (hate getting my photo done!)

The stats -
Field study (patina colourway)
natural cotton
pomegranate sashing Klona cotton
backed with pink cotton sheeting
binding - Valentina Ramos vines 
Hand quilted in grid pattern with white perle cotton
Sashing hand quilted with DMC fluorescent light effects in pink. 
Made with love and time!
