Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day | For the Love of Color!

Wahoo! 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! πŸ˜‰

Edit: This giveaway is closed and the winner is #127, Georgia, who prefers Autumn Splendor. Congrats Georgia!

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:

This Fall I started working on a new palette I’m calling Autumn Splendor. I’m still tweaking the hues a bit, but I think they are gorgeous:

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?

How to enter

Leave a comment telling me which color palette you prefer:

I’ll have Β comment monitoring on, so don’t worry if your comment doesn’t show up right away!

Who can enter?

Anyone! I’ll ship Internationally.

When does it close?

Commenting will be open until December 7 at 5 p.m. PST. I will use good old to choose a random # and email the winnerΒ by December 9, and ship out the fabric the following week!

  1. Candy, the Autumn Splendor palette is indeed splendid! You’ve converted me from a brights fan to these more nuanced hues.

  2. I am loving the projects you’ve shared made from Autumn Splendor. That would be the one for me if I were lucky enough to win.

  3. Autumn tones wins today, but I really like the jewel tones when they are all on the same fabric like in your background.

  4. It is very hard to choose, but I think I would pick the autumn splendor as it intrigues me. It is very unique and is drawing me in. Thanks for the chance to win!
