Today I am positively thrilled to be giving away a Colourbox of Oakshott shot cottons. Some of you may have noticed that I have fallen in love with these shot cottons over the past week. So it seemed only fair to give one lucky reader a chance to try these out for themselves. The colourbox contains 100 F8ths, all beautifully folded and pressed (the kind of little detail that pleases me). These fabrics are irridescent and soft as Liberty Lawn. And the winner can be anywhere in the world. UK quilters already know about Oakshott shot cottons and love them but now we want to share our secret with the rest of you - it only seems fair.
If you love working with solids then you need to give these shot cottons a try. You get the same fresh modern look but with an added dimension of the extra shot of colour running through the fabrics so the fabrics change colour in different lights and from different directions.
If you are looking for inspiration, browse their website and take a look at the F8th, FQ and half metre packs as well as their quilt kits.
So what do you have to do to be in with a chance of winning this prize to beat all prizes? Three chances:
1. Sign up to the Oakshott newsletter which you can find on the right hand side of their homepage here and come back and tell me that you did (and we will be checking!).
2. Spread the word - tweet, blog, facebook etc and come back and let me know that you did.
3. Follow this blog - new and current followers; leave a comment to let me know that you follow.
I will be picking on lucky winner just two weeks from today - 24 February.
