WIP Wednesday

I am catching up on WIPs, and determined to get this one done.


This is the stripey stones quilt I started way back when and is so far made entirely of Oakshott cottons.   As you can see from the wrinkles most of it has spent summer in a box.

I am not sure about what colour to do the remaining pebbles.  I had in my mind a perfect blue-grey but have not been able to find a suitable shot cotton - if anyone knows of one I would be very grateful to hear of it.   I did find a Kaffe Fassett one, but it is rather too fine compared to the Oakshott, so I may have to stick to the existing colours.

  1. I think these pebbles are going to make an awesome quilt! I have yet to work with Oakshott. I love shot cottons and have only used Kaffe Fasset. One day Oakshott will hit my hoard! Can't wait to see where this ends up!

  2. Cna't offer any fabric advice, but I have to say it sounds like a lovely project and what you have so far looks like it will turn out beautifully.
