I've been a big fan of Oakshott fabrics for a long time now, ever since I stumbled across a blog post about them around 8 years ago. For ages I tried to get hold of the fabrics in Australia - which was not easy let me tell you! So having cadged little bits from places for years, imagine my thrill to go to the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham in 2008 and see they had TWO WHOLE STANDS. Oh my heavens...... needless to say my budget was completely blown and my luggage was overweight :)
Two recent quilts I made using Oakshott both won prizes at the New South Wales Quilt Guild Show last year. They're also in my book! The Night Garden:
And a Wing and a Prayer:
Now of course Oakshott have their own marvellous website where you can buy all their wonderful fabrics and bundles right from the source. If you go over there and sign up for their newsletter they will give you a coupon for 10% off your first order. If you do sign up though, make sure you go and tell Lily at Lily's Quilts about it, because she is giving away one of their colourboxes, anywhere in the world.
I tell you this only because I love you. The more of you that enter the less chance for me. Don' say I never give you anything. :)
