This giveaway is now closed. Thank you!

We love a good challenge, and we think you’re going to love our latest Oakshott Ruby Mini Quilt Challenge! Quilters and designers Debbie of A Quilter’s Table, Jen of BettyCrockerAss, Malka of A Stitch in Dye, Deborah of Whipstitch, Kristy of St. Louis Folk Victorian and Beth of Plum and June each used at least six different colors from the Red Ruby Oakshott shot cottons fat quarter bundle in a new mini quilt.

Beth’s Ruby Red Fat 8th Bundle

These 100% cotton fabrics are woven, and all share a red warp; each fabric shares tones with every other fabric in the Ruby Reds collection. You can purchase Oakshott Fabrics at local regional quilt shops, directly from the manufacturer in the UK, or online from Contemporary Cloth in the US.

First up in the challenge is Beth from Plum and June! Beth used all of the colors in the bundle to make three mini quilts, then she turned two of the designs into new pillows.

We love the addition of chambray, dark gray Essex yarn-dyed fabric and linen to the Oakshott cottons in Beth’s mini quilts! Check out Beth’s post about the challenge for more info on these two designs, plus her third mini made of Ruby scraps from the first two projects.
