Fabric Spot fabrics finally arrived

The Fabric Spot fabrics that I won in the Stitched in Color challenge finally arrived a few weeks ago, but I haven’t had a chance to blog about them until now.

I got to pick two fabrics that weren’t part of the original palette, since they were not available at the time, and upon receiving them I was surprised to see how well they match each other. Here they are!

Aren’t they lovely? I have no idea how to use them yet, but I think I’ll use all the palette fabrics in the same project to build upon the original idea. The pair of nature-themed fabrics would be gorgeous to use as starting point for something larger, using the colours of the roses.

What do you think? Have some ideas for these? Happy Friday and a lovely weekend!

My snail palette won!

I can’t believe it, I am so humbled and grateful! My first palette, the one with the snails, lots of yellow and blue in various hues, won the Unabashedly Yellow challenge sponsored by Canadian Fabric Spot.

I was about to wrap up my Monday and then Rachel’s email announced its existence in my inbox, so I headed over to her blog and found this:

My cheerful little palette got over 24 % of the votes, which I still have a hard time believing, because there were so many other fantastic palettes in the challenge.

I’m still stepping outside of my comfort zone and have never participated in a challenge like this before. What a lovely end to a nice Monday!

Another one for the Stitched in Color fabric palette contest

One is allowed to enter with two palettes in the Stitched in Color contest and I’m still as happy to window shop for fabrics in the Fabric Spot webshop, so here’s my second contribution (the first one’s here)!

I don’t have anything in my home of mustard yellow (apart from the Dijon in the fridge of course), but combined this way it really is a delicious hue, don’t you think?

Ah, my favourite! Fabric palettes! Window shopping is almost as good as shopping for real when it comes to fabrics, so I eagerly dug out my foundation print from the Fabric Spot webshop upon reading of Rachel Hauser’s challenge over at Stitched in Color.

The theme is “Unabashedly Yellow” and what do you think? I’d love to win this bundle is what I think!

My starting point were the snails, I love those snails! Recently I saw them on someone’s blog or in a webshop and thought I’d love to get a yard of it.

As for the fabrics in general, I think only two are from the same line, numbers 11 and 12 down in the right corner. It still amazes me what one can do when carefully combining single patterns from different lines. Hope you enjoyed my contribution, wish me luck!
