How many of us have admired the beautiful appliqué work of fantastic designer Deborah Kemball and lusted after emulating her?
We are delighted to say that Quilter’s Guild member Janice Lawson has done just that, and what a bouquet.
She has sent us a couple of photos of Floral Impressions cushions she has finished and said that she has also worked on a Floral Impressions quilt top, so we look forward to seeing that when it has been quilted.
Here at Oakshott we’ve long cherished our association with the Quilters’ Guild and many of its members. Handmade has never been hotter and the Guild plays a vital role in promoting patchwork and quilting skills. We believe there’s a special humanity about handmade pieces – they evoke warm, fuzzy feelings in a way that mass-produced items never can.
So the next step seemed logical…

If you’re going to the Guild Conference at the Harrogate International Conference Centre from 24-26 April 2015, look out for the display of readers’ Mystery Row quilts. It’ll be fascinating to see how varied they are and the spin their makers have put on the basic pattern!
If you are a member of the Quilter’s Guild you’ll be aware of the Mystery Row quilt they’ve been gradually revealing over 2014 in their magazine The Quilter (last row is being revealed in the winter issue). Although it is a member’s ‘thing’ here’s a slideshow preview of some rows so far. Have you had a peek? Now that is what we call creativity – what a glorious kaleidoscope!
