Oakshott Jubilee Jamboree

Oakshott rubies (the new Oakshott shot-with-red collection) mixed with chartreuses and yellows to bring in the sunshine and inky blacky indigos and purples to bring in the night sky.

Jubilee Jamboree Harlequin

It wasn't meant to be a jubilee jamboree quilt but, once the top got to this stage, it did seem like the kind of colours that might be trailing down the Thames on Jubilee weekend.  Maybe HRH can wrap it around her shoulders if it's a blustery day or pop it on top of the bed on Jubilee night if she's a bit chilly.     It's not finished yet.  I think I'll add some borders to give it a bit of pomp and circumstance.  It's the least I can do really.
