Oakshott Lipari Blog Hop: Pretty Little Thing Table Runner

Today is my turn on the Oakshott Lipari blog hop , which is being hosted by Lynne  and runs for the month of May and showcases  Oakshott's Lipari collection .  I've made no secret of the fact that I'm a huge fan of Oakshott's fabrics - they're beautiful to look at, as well as being lovely to sew and I'm honoured to be part of this blog hop.  Thank you, Lynne and Michael, for inviting me to take part and trusting me with the fabric! Oakshott's Lipari collection contains eighteen colours, and each of the colours has a black warp and a different coloured weft which results in luxurious colours that shimmer and shine.  The fabrics subtly change shade depending on the light and this gives projects a really special look that you just don't get with other fabrics. Also, the fabrics are 54" wide so you get a lot more than you'd expect in a fat eighth bundle, which is always good!    You can find out more about the inspiration for this collection he
