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.

have you heard???

I am always looking for great fabric shops and recently discovered Lady Sew and Sew.  After joining the Siblings Together Quilting Bee, I learnt that Lady Sew and Sew would be providing us with some wadding to make our quilts!

How generous is that??? I couldn't believe it and am so thankful for their generosity.  It really is a great website and at the moment they have a fantastic sale on.  Lots of AMH and Amy Butler prints among many for excellent prices.  I have been looking but resisting at the moment!

Also a huge thank you to Brenda from Pink Castle fabrics for supplying the backing fabric!

I also got my block made for this month.  It is my turn to organise the quilt design and send out the fabric etc.  Lynne (Lily's Quilts) sent me a wonderful bundle of Road 15 by Sweetwater fabrics for Moda.  It is beautiful.  I love the colours and the prints. So fun!

I came up with this block from a tutorial online.  They are woven ribbons blocks with sashing so that when all 12 large blocks are put together this gives the effect of lots of little blocks.   I added Kona slate for the sashing which I really like.

So my packages are going out tomorrow.

So please pay Lady Sew and Sew a wee visit if you get the chance and see what fabric delights they have on offer!  You will be pleasantly surprised.
