Sunday Stash #23: Colorshott Cottons

A couple of weeks back, I decided that I wanted to make this quilt design a reality.

After seeing the vibrancy and depth of Oakshott cottons in Adrianne’s and Juliet’s quilts, I really wanted to do this design in Oakshott cottons.

I decided to take a chance, and it worked out. Thanks to Michael Oakshott, I have these wonderful fabrics to work with.

Did you know that there are 57 Colourshott cottons now. Below are their two layer cakes (10″ squares) and sample books that make up the 57 fabrics.

I am thinking of using the fabrics below, for making up the above quilt design. I am trying to decided between either Flax yarn dyed linen or a neutral Kona (like bone, oyster or snow) as a background.

What colors interest you? Do you have a design you want to make into reality?

I will link this post up next week with Molli Sparkles for Sunday Stash (see button on the right).

    GORGEOUS. I have jealousy. lol! You might take a look at Kona Natural. It’s a warm off-white and has little flecks in it.
