Oakshott Charm Pack Giveaway and Optical Illusions Book Party

So it is my stop on the Optical Illusions Book Party blog hop.  As it says on the cover, this book contains a beautiful selection of quilts from a variety of modern quilt designers and I've chosen a few of my favourites further down in the post to give you a taste of the style of quilts in the book.  

For my stop on the blog hop, I am giving away two Oakshott colourshott charm packs plus one Oakshott sample pack. 

And of course my favourite quilt in the book is this Old Dutch quilt made and designed by Melissa Corry inspired by a field of windmills on a recent family holiday.  Made using an Oakshott Italy Fat Eighth bundle, the quilt has a lovely traditional feel made modern with the use of solids which I love.  

Other stunning quilts from the book which really caught my eye include water ripples by Jessica Toye ... 
... Curvilinear by Katie Larson ...
... and 3D Diamonds by Jenifer Dick.

So be in with a chance of winning the three Oakshott charm/sample packs, leave a comment below, any comment at all, perhaps one with a pun in to keep me entertained!
