Impressions

So this lovely bundle came in the mail all the way from England.  Oakshott fabrics makes this bundle, called Impressions.
The fabrics are shot cotton, meaning two different colored threads are woven together which gives the fabric a shimmer and depth of color that changes slightly depending on the angle you're look at it.
I particularly like that Oakshott bundles fabrics that have a single thread color in common.  This bundle is a lovely progression of rainbow colors,  each color woven with a white thread.  They have other bundles done with black and red.  These are just so perfect for spring!
I'm working on a project for Oakshott.  The pattern will be ready soon.  Can't wait to show you more.
