Peppered Cottons Plaid Quilt

Peppered Cottons Plaid Quilt

Welcome to day 17 of the Jaftex 85th anniversary blog hop.  Jaftex makes beautiful Peppered Cottons which are a personal favorite of mine that I have used a little here and there and various projects (a few places here, for the binding here) and I was interested in being able to make a project entirely with this beautiful fabric.

While all of the colors are really lovely, I was particularly drawn to the more neutral tones and felt like they would make a great baby boy quilt.  This may have been on my mind because I have a 4 month old baby boy ;)

The fabrics were wonderful to work with and the finished project is so buttery soft.  My favorite use for this fabric might be as the quilt binding.

Jaftex Corp. was founded in the 1930’s when Jacob A. Fortunoff started selling fabric on the streets of New York.  At that time, the mainstay of the business was women’s sleepwear and lingerie.  In the 80’s, Jacob’s grandson, Robert, dramatically changed the business of the company.  The business focus was transferred to the over the counter quilt industry when Robert purchased companies like A.E. Nathan, Henry Glass, Stylemaker, Chanteclaire, Fabric Editions/Studioe and more recently The Blank Quilting Corp.  Robert is now joined by his two sons, Scott and Greg.  Scott currently is the President of Studioe Fabrics, The Blank Quilting Corp. & A.E. Nathan Co., Inc.  Greg just joined the business in late 2014 and has successfully spearheaded the company’s foray in to precut fabrics among other contributions.
