Quilt Around The World International Block Swap

Oakshott joins with Quilt Around the World to bring you the 3rd International Block Swap.
The online portal Quilt around the World is organising a new project for patchwork enthusiasts around the globe. The theme this time is 'In the Sun'.
Everyone's invited, whatever your level. It's a wonderful opportunity to express your creative ideas and to work with like-minded people from around the world in a truly multi-national, cross-cultural project.

You'll be asked to sew nine identical patchwork blocks to a design of your choice. The blocks will then be swapped within internationally mixed teams. There are no restrictions on technique, pattern or colour, but the block motif must include yellow. At the end, every participant will have the makings of a unique sunshine quilt containing nine different patchwork blocks from nine quilters around the world.
To get your creative juices going, Oakshott have created two special colour picks, available as Fat 8ths, Fat Quarters and Half Metre Blocks: Tangiers, a collection of 6 sweltering oranges, and Buttercup - lustrous yellows, as the name suggests.

PLUS we're offering 10% off normal prices* to everyone who registers to take part.
