A few months ago, I was approached by Michael Oakshott to collaborate on designing a pattern that used their new bundle of fabrics, Jett. Jett is a bundle of twelve fabrics with black as the weft. If you are not familiar with shot cottons, there are usually two different colors. The warp threads run parallel to the selvages, and the weft threads run perpendicular to the selvages. It gives a beautiful depth and luminosity to the fabrics, and they are definitely my very favorite fabrics to use in my quilts. This was an unbelievable opportunity for me.
You can read the back story on Jettstream and its precursor, Color Commotion, here.
I knew the launch of the fabric bundle, pattern, and kit was soon, but I did not know it was going to be today!. What a fun surprise to open this up in my email. (Note: These links do not work because I just copied the email, but if you want to check it out, here is the link to the Oakshott website.)
