It’s time for another Oakshott Ruby Mini Quilt from our latest challenge! Our six designers used Red Ruby Oakshott shot cottons to create a mini quilt, using at least six quarters from a fat quarter bundle. They finished mini quilts are beautiful! Don’t you wish you could get your hands on some Red Ruby fabrics too? Comment on any of our Oakshott Ruby Mini Quilt Challenge posts for a chance to win a fat quarter bundle.
Thanks to Debbie from A Quilter’s Table, Jen of BettyCrockerAss, Malka of A Stitch in Dye, Deborah from Whipstitch, Kristy of St. Louis Folk Victorian and Beth of Plum and June for sharing their talents and creativity with us in the challenge! Here are links to Beth and Debbie’s mini quilts. Next up is Kristy of St. Louis Folk Victorian. Kristy’s mini quilt features seven Oakshott colors:
Kristy writes, “While reviewing the bundle, I was drawn to the earth tones and challenged myself to use them since that palette is something I usually don’t gravitate towards. While the Oakshott fabrics have an almost luminescent quality about them, I liked the contrast of adding an almost raw and unfinished cloth as the base, so Osnaburg was an immediate choice. Using one of my favorite blocks, Flying Geese, I got to work. I cannot even remember all the different layouts that I tried but, in the end, keeping it simple is what looked best.”
