The Lakes collection is a wonderful evocation of crisp, clear winter sunshine on bright, frosty days, and the Sew Mama Sew Lakes Table Linen Challenge produced some lovely designs to bring that vibrancy into your house.
We’ve put the six designs into a free booklet for you to download, either click here, go to the Instant Colour page and browse the whole booklet collection, or go to the Oakshott Fabrics shop website and check out the fabrics (all these designs can be made with a Lakes Fat 8ths pack of 16 colours).
Nicky, of mrsssewandsow.blogspot, has had her Lavender Knots quilt published in Quilt Now. She says:
Your Oakshotts really make the impact from afar and draw the eye in for a closer look at the more detailed Liberty fabrics. So thrilled it works at a distance and close up. Liberty and Oakshott make for a winning team! Hope you like it.
For the curious, the fabrics Nicky used from the Oakshott Colourshott collection were:
They were a joy to work with! Looking forward to seeing Scandinavia* when it comes out.
*What is this rumour? Hang on in there, more to follow about an exciting new collection soon…
The gorgeously sophisticated, jewel-like Oakshott Lipari collection is shown to great advantage in Anne William‘s design called Magic Carpet which first appeared in Popular Patchwork
We have reproduced the pattern in one of our free booklets, so download away and fly off on your own magic carpet. Here’s the link to the Lipari Fat Eighths pack you’ll need to create it.
The free pattern booklets can be found on the Instant Colour page of this blog and on the shop website.
