Take A Hint

Great to see the results of FoQ 2015 purchases from the Oakshott stand.

Well done to Rona Bebb for completing the Hint Quilt Wallhanging Kit, great to see photos which show the size and the quilting, and thanks for her kind words:

“They are lovely fabrics to work on, soon to buy more from you.”

Is the quilting world ready for Scandinavia?

Scandinavia is the name of Oakshott Fabrics’ newest shot cotton collection.

The inspiration for this palette of eight calm, muted tones of vaporous blues, soft greys, milky whites and  woody shades comes from the clean, bright, airy colours of stylish Scandinavian interiors and the ethereal quality of northern winter light.

We’ve had great fun drawing up a Scandinavia board on Pinterest full of images that echo these luminous colours.

To celebrate the launch of Scandinavia Leanne Chahley  designed this beautiful  quilt/wallhanging (given a sneak preview at QuiltCon in Texas) called Hint:

USE-Hint-front

 

We love the graphic shapes and the texture the quilting gives the fabrics.

The kit for Hint is available in two sizes (40″ x 40″ / 102 cm x 102 cm or 84″x 84″ / 213 cm x 213 cm) complete with the fabric (enough for front and back) and a pattern booklet with template.

We hope you enjoy banishing the winter doldrums with these luscious Nordic lights.
