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.

school's out (soon)

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Well the school prize giving was very good.  Emma got a prize for being the most successful learner in her primary one class which was a surprise for her.  She was so pleased with herself!

School finishes at 1pm on Friday here in Scotland.  We aren't managing a holiday this year but are planning day trips to keep them amused.  Hoping for some dry weather too.

Today I received some gorgeous bee blocks from Janet for my Bee a Brit Stingy scrappy trip around the world quilt.  Thank you for the little extra too.  :))

Those are my trainers yes I am still working out with Jillian Michaels although now onto a different dvd!

My Happy Go Lucky charm pack came last Friday and I love it but I do not know what to make with it.  It is such a beautiful line of fabric I want to do it justice.  Any suggestions very welcome!

And last but not least a sneak peek at something I have been working on!  I suppose there may be a little pattern here if anyone is interested in me sharing a tutorial on it.  It involves english paper piecing and applique.  Very straightforward techniques too.  

I am off to have my first cup of tea of the day!!  Then work on some bunting a lovely friend has asked me to make her.  

Take care
Collette x
