Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day! | Color, Glorious Color!

GiveawayDayMay6Wahoo! Giveaway Day is here! The awesome folks at Sew Mama Sew coordinate a massive effort of blogging sewists who host a giveaway at their blog on the same time, placing links to all the giveaways in one place. To all the new folks who’ve come here from Sew Mama Sew, welcome! I’d love to have you add me to your reader or sign up for my monthly newsletter (there’s a form right in the sidebar) so you can drop by for a dose of color once in awhile! 😉

As a fabric dyer who can dye anything she wants, I found that this prospect of endless possibility can stymie me. For me, the answer to this has been to choose a palette of colors, and really spend my time working with them in different pieces that I make. For the past couple of years, a lot of my work has been done using my Jewel Tones palette:

Quilting Arts Gifts 2012

Last Fall I started working on a new palette I’m calling Autumn Splendor. These are complex colors, all dyed with different amounts of all 3 primary colors, and they resonate very strongly with me!



This Spring I had a hankering for some pinks and greens – not pastel, not neon, but somewhere in between:



What better way to share my love of color than to give one lucky commenter set of fat quarters in the palette of their choice, along with a piece of multi-color fabric in those same hues?

  15. That’s tough – I love all of your palettes! I think if I were lucky enough to win, I’d probably have to pick the jewel tones, as I think that would be the most fun to make things for my little boy on the way! I am picturing awesome blocks with animal outline appliqués in those gorgeous colors! Wouldn’t that be fun! And doesn’t every boy need a set of soft blocks!?! I was thinking of you today – we’re having a ton of renovations done, including new paint – and I picked some gorgeous shades of greens – light, calm, but lovely! Color really is key, isn’t it?!? I feel like I’m finally going to want to live in this house now that we’re getting some lovely color on the walls!

  54. Jewel tones for me, please. Thank you for the chance to win one of your fabulous dyed fabric collections.

  55. I’m a big fan of the Autumn Splendor set as well. They seem so universal, but unique!

  56. They’re all beautiful! If I had to choose, I’d lean towards Autumn Splendor. Love the houses!

  57. I think your fabric is beautiful.
    Since you are asking for a choice, I would choose the autumn palette because it is different than what I normally would pick.
    I think that if I were to win the autumn palette, it would cause me to stretch and to think and to really concentrate on colors that are new and different to me (while still being bright and wonderful.)
    Thanks for this opportunity.

  58. Generoso regalo!Todas las telas son una belleza.Admiro su trabajo.
    Que no haría por verde de primavera.

  59. I love them all but if I had to pick I would say the Jewel tones. Thanks for the chance to win.

  60. I like the spring greens myself but they are all great. What type of dyes do you use?
    Thanks for the generous giveaway.

  61. They are certainly all beautiful, but I vote for Autumn Splendor. Thanks for your give away to whomever wins.

  62. The Autumn colors are my fav. They seem more complex and mysterious to me and have natural depth. All of your dye primary families are beautiful however. You can’t beat clear bright colors to lift your spirit!
