What do you think about when people mention the color pink? I think of Neapolitan ice cream, Pink Panther, Blossoms / Spring, Pinky Bars, Pigs / Miss Piggy and Breast Cancer awareness.
I am not usually a pink kind of person, but a while ago, I decided to start a very pink quilt for a friends daughter….”Neapolitan”. Here is the first two blocks, with a goal for a finish in July.
The overall design will look like this:
Why am I bringing this up, you might ask? Tonight, while catching up on blog posts, I discovered that Rachel over @ Stitched in Color is running my favorite competition again….yes, a mosaic contest!! The color palette, you guessed, is PINK!!!
I decided to enter a low-volume pink mosaic:
and for the second entry (and my favorite) a saturated palette of pink and orange:
Creating these mosaic’s are so much fun, why not give it a try….go over and check out Rachel’s post.
Today, the finalists were announced and the voting opened for the Washed Earth Mosaic competition, over at Stitched in Color. Great news, I am a finalist along with a couple of my blog and quilting friends!! It would be great, if you go over take a look and vote on your favorite. Voting is open until midnight Sunday.
This is my entry that made it through:
It was inspired by these photos of autumn/fall in Appalachian mountains in North Carolina.
Have a great weekend.
Rachel over @ Stitched in Color is hosting another mosaic competition. You all know how much I love color and how much I enjoy participating in the mosaics. This time the mosaics need to be created using fabric images from pink chalk fabrics and should represent a washed earth theme – i.e. earthy tones, browns, greys and whites.
Here is my first entry, which is a little more saturated and inspired by fall in the mountains of North Carolina:
Second entry having more of the washed look and again inspired by our trip to the Appalachians last fall:
Go over and take a look, have a go. Voting opens October 4th.
