This giveaway is now closed. Thank you!

Jen from BettyCrockerAss rounds out the last of our Oakshott Ruby Mini Quilt Challenge with a some pretty mini quilt curves and circular quilting!

Each of our designers used at least six different colors from the Red Ruby Oakshott shot cottons fat quarter bundle, which you can find at local regional quilt shops, directly from the manufacturer in the UK, or online from Contemporary Cloth in the US.

Jen’s Oakshott, ready for a mini quilt!

Here are posts from each of our challengers: Deborah, Beth, Debbie, Kristy and Malka. Take a look at all of the unique and beautiful mini quilts, then be sure to comment on any of the Oakshott Ruby Mini Quilt Challenge posts for a chance to win a fat eighth bundle with 16 gorgeous pieces of Oakshott Ruby!

Jen has a great video in her Oakshott Ruby post to share just how she sews curves (with the help of a purple glue stick and seam guide!). There’s also a fun tip for playing with value in your quilting when deciding on a layout.

Jen challenged herself to use every color in the fabric bundle, and she had fun getting out of her “comfort zone and trying something new.”

Thanks for joining us for all of these fun mini quilts in the challenge! Take a look at the latest from our talented Oakshott Ruby Mini Quilt Challengers via their blogs:
