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.

more published quilts!

I wanted to share a few of my latest quilts featured in quilting magazine British Patchwork & Quilting.

First up is my Ombre Geese quilt made with Moda Grunge fabrics.  Moda Grunge is a fantastic fabric with gorgeous tones and texture on it.  From a distance it looks like a kind of solid but up close it is full of the most gorgeously, grungy texture with different shades and tones.

This pattern is foundation paper pieced to give those geese perfect points!  I love making this quilt and was so glad to have it back home so I could snuggle up on a sofa with it. 

Next up was my table runner using a gorgeous jelly roll by Tilda fabrics.  These are all co - ordinated so all I had to do was add some yarn dyed Essex linen to them.  These love hearts are so cute to make and fun and I love adding some free motion quilting to this runner.  Something I don't do very much! 

Thanks for reading!
