“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.
Once again ace designer Lynne Goldsworthy of LilysQuilts has come up with a stunner, this time using the Aruba Fat Eighths Pack. This traditional design has a decidedly modern feel and the new kit has been christened Aruba Nine-Patch Wall Hanging
‘the effect of a nine-patch on point, creating an Irish chain and the interesting play and contrast when the same block is used together in two different ways.’
The entire quilt is Oakshott Colorshotts. The borders on the sides was leftover fabric from Off Course! The quilting plan is some straight line quilting following the sewing lines in the triangles and squares and then some FMQing on the borders. I’m pretty excited about getting this one finished! The strips finish at 1 inch. Took awhile to sew this one! 🙂
