Keep an eye out...

and in a while, you might see something that looks a little bit like this:

It will be:
Lily's Quilts

Yes, I won this contest over at Lily's Quilts!  Thanks so much for picking my idea Lynne - I am really looking forward to receiving the Oakshott Rubies Fat Eighth bundle and starting to put this quilt together.

I haven't used Oakshott fabrics before (I haven't even seen them in real life), but Anne at Surely not another project! is making this absolutely gorgeous quilt with the fat quarter bundle, and the colours are so vibrant.  
Do check out Anne's blog - she has some lovely quilts on show.  Like me, Anne has a legal background, and had the great idea of a law inspired quilt.  It had never occurred to me before, but I love the idea and it's going on the to-do list for sure.

Have you ever worked this Oakshott fabrics before?  Any tips or tricks?  And, have you ever made a quilt inspired by your occupation?

Congratulations!!!! You've hit the big time now! This is going to be a beautiful quilt! I've never seen or used Oakshotts either so I am extremely jealous! Good luck!
