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.

Getting there!

Hello and happy Friday!  This has been a busy old week for me.  I have quilted the Siblings Together quilt and am now in the process of hand stitching the back of the black and white binding.  I also pieced September's Siblings Together block.  Maria sent everyone packages of Smore Love by Moda and it is such a cute, fun fabric!

Over in our Hipbees group I managed to get Fiona's block done.  She sent some gorgeous Amy Butler fabric and gave us free reign!  I love stars so had to make a wonky star.

And last but by no means least, I treated myself to a new quilting book!  I resisted the urge to buy more fabric and thought this beauty by Lu Summers would be more of an investment!  I got my copy from the lovely Annabella who bought an extra one at the Festival of Quilts.  I love the look of it and can't wait to delve deeper!

Have a great weekend and back on Monday with a finished Siblings Together quilt to show you hopefully!
