Michael at Oakshott Fabrics sent me a bit more than 2 yards of the stuff to try out (the California Poppy fat quarter bundle, plus yardage of Spirit Atlas and Sprit Mimosa). I mixed it with another quater yard of Oakshott Sargasso (purchased locally at A Verb For Keeping Warm), 4 shot cottons from my stash, and another 3 shot cottons that Hamish brought back from India last year to make 64 - 8.5" blocks.
It was interesting to work with shot cottons from so many sources. I have to say the Oakshott fabrics were wonderful to work with, fine and silky but still substantial. The three Indian fabrics are light and gauzy and a bit tricky to work with in combination with quilting cottons. I'm a big fan of Kaufman Carolina Chambrays because they wash up thick and soft. But they aren't in the same league (or price point) as the rich colors and fine hand of the Oakshotts. Of the shot cottons in my stash, the two Kaffe Fassett fabrics (from another wonderful local shop, New Pieces) were most similar to the Oakshotts, but seemed to have a slightly looser weave.
All are fabrics that I will be happy to work with again, but the Oakshotts are certainly a special pleasure.
