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.

It's Friday??? No wait it's Thursday!

Hello!  I am a little mixed up today as you may have guessed.  It is the September weekend tomorrow up here and the kids are off Friday and Monday so I keep thinking today is Friday!

Yesterday I had the fourth week, yes fourth, of my English Paper Piecing class.  The ladies are doing wonderfully and really enjoying the social aspect as well as the creative process.  Here is a glimpse of what they have been making.

The class want to make a mini quilt next so we will be running another course!  So I shall be busy but having fun!

I have been working on a wee hand quilting project for myself over the last wee while too.

I have a feeling I may be going a bit overkill on the handquilting thing but I am carrying on regardless !  
So today I am off to play with some of this loveliness -

Isn't it lovely?  
Have a great Thursday everyone!

  6. Great news about the classes. Loving your makes and I have some of that Winters Lane to play with too. As for it being Thurs. I said to one of my bosses I'd see him on Monday. He asked if I had the day off tomorrow. When I'd worked out it was Thurs I had to admit it was just wishful thinking :-)

  7. So glad your classes are going so well xxx
