Bancroft is the husband of Alexia Marcelle Abegg, with whom he co-founded the popular Green Bee Patterns in Nashville.
“I like the colors of the MicroMod prints as they have more of a masculine feel, which is something that we don’t have enough of in our store,” said Bianca Howell, the co-owner of Owl & Drum.
Howell and business partner Dani Weaver selected four prints from the brand-new microMod collection – named “Tick Tock,” “Vertigo,” “Seaweed” and “Night Vision” – during a recent buying trip to the International Quilt Market in Houston.

MicroMod, a 100 percent organic cotton fabric, is a retro-inspired fabric which features geometric shapes, with purples and teals incorporated in the interesting color pallet.
“With it’s moody, neutral colors and vibrant accents, this mid-century, modern-influenced collection is perfect for everything from home decor to garment sewing,” according to Cloud9Fabrics.com.
“It is also one of Cloud 9’s price-sensitive collections, which means you get the benefit of buying organic at an average quilting cotton cost.”
MicroMod is the first licensed fabric Bancroft has designed for Green Bee Patterns’ new fabric division. (In fact, the Tennessee company is now called Green Bee Patterns & Design!)
