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.

fresh sewing day and more!

I think I have just made it in time to squeeze a wee blog post in on this 1st of a new month. June already!!!! Time flies.

I am joining up with Lily's Quilts to tell you what I have been working on over the last month of May. I haven't had many finishes at all but I have become involved in something very worthwhile and exciting.

Here are the finishes for May. 

A baby quilt for my Etsy shop.

Bee blocks for Bee a Brit Stingy queenie of May Catherine.

Bee blocks for Hipbees May queenie Sarah.

custom order for an etsy customer. 

You may remember me writing about joining a new quilting bee last month organised by Lynne at Lily's Quilts.  This group of fellow blogging quilters have joined to form this bee - 

We are being sponsored by some wonderfully generous companies - 

Moda are supplying Fat Quarter bundles each month to make the quilt.
Lady Sew and Sew are kindly supplying wadding.

AND - The companies below are generously donating backing fabrics.  



Isn't that just awesome???!  I am bowled over by the generosity of all these companies.  I am humbled to be part of this also.  To help create quilts made with love and that will bring warmth and comfort to lovely children.  

Have a lovely weekend.
