Hi from Germany!

"It´s the rich colours that have inspired me again and again for over 10 years about Oakshott Fabrics. I have the opportunity to work with high contrasts or monochrome colours to create what I have in mind.

Playing with high contrasts is the quilt Strippy. All eight colours of the Oakshott Fabrics Alpine collection combined with Colourshott Moleskin create the simple and clear design of this quilt. The pattern is featured in the magazine Patchwork Professional No. 05/2023.

"The wide range of colours of Oakshott Fabrics even gives me the opportunity to reflect the impressions and emotions of daily life.

The minimalistic and clear designs of the quilts Modern Traditions and Summer Fun were made during summer to reflect the lightness of summer fun days.

"The quilt Cool Breeze, with its shades of blue, reflects our windy and cold seasons.

"You can find the daily ups and downs in my quilt Back and Forth. It means for me, just because the directions changes, it still goes on.

Who can resist a pack of 5" squares of bright colours? Not me! The quilt Joy of Colours is made with 110 different colours of Oakshott fabrics.
