Oakshott Fabrics make the most gorgeous luminous hand woven shot cottons (a different colour thread is used for each of the warp and the weft of the fabric). I've used their fabrics in several projects, starting with my Rubies in the Rough quilt made using a fat eighth Ruby Reds bundle. You can find the tutorial for this quilt here.
I know shot cottons have a bit of a bad reputation for being stretchy or slippery or thin but you won't get any of that with Oakshotts. They look like silk but they are 100% cotton and they behave like cotton - they iron out beautifully and are a delight to sew with. For instance, I had no trouble sewing the wee tiny scraps left over from my Rubies in the Rough quilt into a panel for this matching cushion.
I especially like the colour packs and blocks, pre-cut bundles of fabrics ranging in size from fat eighths to half metres - there are some glorious combinations. My low volume and Oakshotts plusses quilt is made with the Sunrise bundle.
I bought a fat quarter bundle and I have loads left over. Look how pretty the fabrics are all together in colour order! This is possibly the only bad thing about Oakshotts - the bundles are so pretty that it can be hard to open them up and cut into them!
Apart from the fabrics, I'm really enjoying working with Oakshott Fabrics. It's a small family owned company and Michael Oakshott is really great to deal with. I recommend that you sign up for the newsletter (I did, long before I approached Oakshott Fabrics for sponsorship) to make sure you keep up to date with new products and any promotions.
For anyone who hasn't tried Oakshotts yet - be warned, Oakshotts are highly addictive! So, any other Oakshott addicts out there?
