This is a very simple patchwork quilt is made with traditional squares and rectangles and wonderful fabrics from the Oakshott ranges.
This quilt is created with very simple quilt blocks, that use squares and rectangles and the beauty comes from the fabrics used. Helen chose some of the Oakshott fabric ranges because they gave her two colourways to use each time – hence the lights being either on or off.
The blocks do require some accurate piecing (which is a little unusual for Helen as she is usually more of an improv girl!) – so do pay attention ; however, Valerie Nesbitt suggests that if your seams are a little large (so that the centre strip ends up shorter than 6.5″ ) then just trim all the blocks to the same smaller size !!
Helen talks about three ranges from Oakshott – Window pane, Grayshott and Basketweave, all of which are available through our Shop, and you will need 2 x packs of Fat 1/8ths 8 colours and 1 charm 8 colourspack.
The pattern is available for our subscribed members as usual as a pdf , but for others you will need to click here for the free pattern.
