I finished Colour Shot,  just in the  nick of time to enter it in the festival.


Why did I start this quilt....Lynne asked if I would be willing to make a quilt using the Oakshott Cottons and blog about it??? Would I be willing???? Well of course, I'd be willing.

Quilt Back




When this beautiful bundle of Oakshott Cottons arrived at my door, mid March, I became totally obsessed with immersed in this project. 


Some Improvising....

Some inset circles

A few appliqued strips
A little QAYG....
and there you have it.

 I've flooded my blog with my progress, over the last few months and have been motivated, by so many supportive comments along the way. This is the first totally solid quilt I've ever made, but I don't think it will be my last.
