You may remember this quilt I made a couple of years ago from Helen Howes wonderful Twelve Trees pattern using the Oakshott sunshine F8th bundle.  Well at this year’s Fat Quarterly retreat, you will have a chance to learn to make the blocks that go into this quilt in workshops with Helen Howes, the quilt designer.  You will also be given Oakshotts to pay with in the workshop to mix in with your own fabrics.


But if you’re not coming to the retreat (and even if you are) here is a chance to win your own sunshine F8th bundle.  Oakshott are re-issuing all 56 of their colourshott colours in a heavier, wider (54″) version.  Closer to the weight of quilting cottons than the previous incarnation, the Oakshotts are deeper and richer and still as soft as butter so sew with.







Here is a quilt I made using them this week which will soon be available free with any sunshine F8 bundle you buy from Oakshott.


Anyway, on to the winning part.  What do you have to do to be in with a chance of winning?  You have three chances to comment and, as we like to reward loyalty, two are restricted to loyal FQ customers.

1.     Sign up to the Oakshott newsletter and let us know that you have or that you already were signed up.

2.   One extra entry for anyone who has a ticket for this year’s Fat Quarterly retreat or has been to any of our previous retreat.

3.   One extra entry for anyone who has a Fat Quarterly subscription currently.

Good Luck and we will draw a winner randomly next week!
