Primordial, iridescent New Lipari

Lipari2016_range_ruched1 (2)

New Lipari perfectly captures the primordial beauty of the Aeolian islands. Its luminous colours mirror cobalt seas, lush greenery, pink bougainvillea and shimmering sun; a beauty shot through with dark, fine-grained volcanic rock and black sand.

The rich, soft drape of this 54″ wide fabric with its black warp and 18 lustrous wefts offers you distinctive, iridescent jewel tones to work with; see what inspired Oakshott Fabrics to create this collection.

Designers are describing this collection as:
‘luscious’ ‘dynamic’ ‘stunning’
New Lipari is available as cut lengths and in a choice of pre-cut packs, including Fat 8ths, Fat Quarters, Half Metre Blocks and 5” Squares. The 5″ Labelled Sample Swatch comes with a £5 Gift Voucher – now there’s temptation!
And if it’s inspiration you need, then look no further than our selection of Quilting Kits, created exclusively for us by some of the world’s leading designers.

Purple Days

Purple combines the calm stability of blue with the fierce energy of red. It’s often associated with royalty, nobility, luxury and power. Purple can represent wealth, creativity, wisdom, grandeur, devotion, peace, mystery, independence and magic.

We love designer Helen Howes’ use of purple in her Interpolations 3a / Inpurpleation Quilt (shown here in progress):
