Interpret Interpolations

Helen Howes has shared with her on thoughts on creating Interpolations 3 which, as the name suggests, is part of a design series. You can read the story behind her work and see the complete collection (so far!) in the first of our new In the designer’s own words features.


In her latest exclusive design for Oakshott, Helen of HelenHowesTextiles has offset vibrant Ruby Reds against a subtle grey background of Lipari Pollara to stunning effect. These cottons take on a silk-like appearance – the result of combining different colour threads for warp and weft.
Interpolations 3 finishes at 30.5″ x 40.5″ and is available to buy now.

Fantabulous Sunrise

Laureen has sent us this information (and very kind words) about her traditional American log cabin pattern of 12 inch light/dark blocks, which she has named Sunrise:

“The attached photos are just to show you what your fantabulous woven cotton fabrics have done for me.  Here is my latest Oakshott cotton quilt.”

“I like your cottons which are astonishing in their depth of color and lustre.  They make quilting to my mind quite painterly.  Until I found your cotton I worked almost always in Japanese patterned fabrics.  Now I am finding a whole new dimension in plain vibrant colors, with a sheen to them that never quits.”
