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.

Best mail ever!

Hello!  Well as promised here is the wonderful package I received through the mail last week.

Those of you who know me will probably realise I am in a quilting bee called Bee A Brit Stingy.  The 5 other ladies are wonderful and have been so kind and forgiving to me during my time in the bee.  I am so very grateful to each and everyone of them. Shout out time - Di , Nicky ,Sheila, Catherine and the lovely Lucy - much love to you all! xxxxx

Last year we each made our own row for a quilt and then posted it off to the next person to add a row, who then posted it on to the next and so on.

My theme was sewing/quilting related and these are the beautiful, thoughtful, amazing rows I received back from each lovely lady.

I plan to do an individual spotlight on each wondrous row but this quick photo will have to do you all for now!
My row is  the 3rd from the top.

I felt very emotional when I opened it all up but I am a bit like that at the moment.  I love every single row of it and am so very thankful for the work put in.  All the other ladies received their rows back too and are equally delighted with what they received.
