“This is my all Oakshott quilt inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright. I love my Oakshotts! Thanks for making a great product.”
… and thanks Mary for making such great use of them.
Read all about Mary’s making journey and get some fantastic tips from her great five part description at FairlyMerry blog where she describes her whole improv process, piecing, threads, basting, quilting, re-jigging, binding, and so on.
Modern Quilt Guild member Judy Murphy upgraded her Janome 7700 to an 8900, invested in a whole roll of wool batting so she would always have some to hand, and sent us photos of her seriously lovely quilt, Off Course. Read all about the process (and gain some handy hints, particularly on binding and on the design process) on her blog, www.quiltparadigm.blogspot.co.uk
The New Colourshott fabrics Judy used are, for the background, Vintage Silver (COTX28), Charcoal (COTX29), Black (COTX30) and Amalfi (COTX32); the blues are Banda (COTX16), Timor (COTX17) and Celebes (COTX18); and the pinks/purples are Lilac (COTX19), Sweet Pea (COTX20) and Dusk (COTX21).
“The combo of the sheen on the Isocord and the colors of the Oakshotts is nothing short of amazing! Oh, and the weight of these cottons? They are as heavy as any of the other quality quilting cotton I use. It is not thin and it is not ‘see through.’ I cannot wait to make another quilt with Colourshotts”
