New Lakes ripples across quilt projects

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.
You could go on in Lakes with a Ripples quilt and a Shoreline quilt:

50 Shades of Serendipity

We are so glad that Kate has shared her piece of serendipity with us. She bought the pattern and fabric colour pack for 50 Shades + Grey Quilt (designed exclusively for Oakshott by Lynne Goldsworthy of LilysQuilts) and then:

I thought you might like to see my version of 50 shades which came about through that classic error of not reading the pattern carefully!!

and lo! A whole new quilt is born …

Colourshott Memory Game

Earlier this year we marvelled at the eight stunning designs that came out of a bloghop run by Lynne Goldsworthy (see the individual ones in earlier posts). Now we have drawn them together into one of our FREE ezines so you can choose which design to start with! Each quilt uses a selection from the 27 vibrant colours in a 10″ Square Pack of Colourshott 31-57 and the booklet tells you a bit about each designer and gives you the link to their pattern tutorial (covering topics like foundation piecing, 60 degree and half rectangle triangles, hourglass blocks, bias tape for appliqué, 6-patch trip around the world block).

So download the booklet here (or from the Instant Colour page, where you will find the others in the series) and meanwhile, have a go at matching the squares from each quilt off the front cover design:
