With thanks to Laura Welkin for sharing both her good news and her picture:
This is my miniature quilt, Dancing Dahlia. It measures 15"x15". It received a first at the AQS Paducah and a second place at the NQA Show. The dark blue fabric and the green background fabric are both Oakshott cottons. I have been told a few times that the green fabric seems to glow! 2015-07Welklin_Dancing Dahlia_Full
I discovered your fabric in the Pinwheels vendor booth at the Paducah show in 2014. I instantly fell in love with a bright blue and bright green. I only purchased half yards of each, so I had to make a small quilt. I entered the quilt in the 2015 Paducah show and received a first place in the miniature category! The question I am asked the most about the quilt is, "What fabric is the green background?" A judge's comment from the NQA Show stated, "Use of silk fabric makes this small piece glow." Many do think it is silk. I found some eighth yard pieces on Etsy, so I am currently making another miniature with some of your violet fabrics as the background. Can't wait to finish this one! Thank you for making such beautiful fabric!

    How wonderful. I am just about to start a project with Oakshott Fabrics. How inspiring is this quilt.
