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.

Feeling botanical

Spring has sprung apparently!  And yet we have snow in the UK.  Thankfully it doesn't linger too much once we get into March/April months.

I have developed a much needed desire for greenery in the house again of late.  Before the kids arrived we had a few houseplants.

So I asked a friend for a cutting of her aloe vera plant and I was off!  So far I have a Snake plant, young monsera, young rubber plant and a few succulents.  I also rescued a rather drab looking Calathea from Morrison's and it is revived and flourishing.

I must have been think botanical things several months ago when I made these cushions for Love Patchwork & Quilting magazine, issue 59.   The second photo was a cute loveheart mini wall hanging I made for them too for issue 58.

I also had a beautiful bundle of Cori Dantini fabric which I turned into a picture frame quilt for British Patchwork and Quilting.  This is in their current issue.

Thanks for reading!
