Whether or not you enter this month’s prize draw for a Lakes Fat 8ths Pack, do join us in celebrating the arrival of the New Lakes collection by making one of the amazing designs we can offer from Lynne Goldsworthy and Helen Howes.
The Lakes Table Runner has been designed by Lynne Goldsworthy (and coloured by Helen Howes) and the pack contains the pattern and a Lakes Fat 8ths Pack and the finished size is 53″ x 18″ / 135 cm x 46 cm
Alternatively, you may like a bit of a chunkier project. Have a go at City Lights by Helen Howes. She originally designed it for Ruby Reds, but as you can see it has a certain éclat in Lakes as well:
The pack contains a Lakes Fat 8ths Pack, a Ruby Reds 5″ Square Charm Pack and the instructions. The backing fabric will need to be bought separately. The finished size is 47″ x 47″ / 120 x 120 cms.
Helen Howes has shared with her on thoughts on creating Interpolations 3 which, as the name suggests, is part of a design series. You can read the story behind her work and see the complete collection (so far!) in the first of our new In the designer’s own words features.
In her latest exclusive design for Oakshott, Helen of HelenHowesTextiles has offset vibrant Ruby Reds against a subtle grey background of Lipari Pollara to stunning effect. These cottons take on a silk-like appearance – the result of combining different colour threads for warp and weft.
Interpolations 3 finishes at 30.5″ x 40.5″ and is available to buy now.
