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.

You know when you get a really good quilting book......?

And you just have to start making things from it straight away??  Last week I purchased the wonderful 500 Quilt Blocks by Lynne Goldsworthy and Kerry Green.  It is so useful.  I can't stress how much usefulness it possesses!  I made two things in the space of two nights.  An essential pinnie and a modern spools block.

Le Challenge
I have also joined up with a little challenge for fun.  I heard of this ages ago and thought, yes that would be fun, but have been ridiculously busy and lazy and not found time.  It is called Le Challenge and there is more info about it here.  This months challenge is stripes so I have got my thinking cap on for something stripey!

Hoping to share progress on what I make with you all as soon as I have an idea!!
Take care
