Today is the day we announce the Mad for Solids 2017, our quilty version of March Madness (we can’t let the basketball players have all the fun, can we?) There are 16 quilters who have chosen sixteen different combinations of fabrics, and we’ve been placed in a bracket of games:
I’m in Game 1–which is Monday. Yeah, I won’t really be challenging my opponent to a game of basketball in my driveway. Instead we will post info about our bundle of colors and you’ll choose the winner in each match-up. If you like hers better than mine, that’s fine–the point is to play and have some fun.
And what’s in it for you, other than a chance to see a lot of fabulous colors from the Paintbrush Studios line of solids? Paintbrush Studios will draw two people at the end of the contest during the championship game to win a bundle of their favorite fabric. You’ll love wanting to get your hands on this fabulous fabric. Click *HERE* to see the line-up of beautiful bundles of fabrics. (UPDATE–I fixed the link.)
And now, I’d like to introduce: Guccilicious!
Yes, I chose my colors for my bundle after looking at the clothes in the Gucci Designer Collection. The Fall Paris Fashion Shows are always held in Spring, and since I’ve had some down time for reading, I looked at several collections. The clothes are not what caught my eye in Gucci’s collection–it was the colors!
I went to my color chart, and started narrowing it down to the colors shown above. I tried to capture the essence of Gucci’s colors with my eight allowed choices.
So come back Monday to get a look at what I made with my colors, and to get the link where to vote for my bundle. When this is all over with in a week or two, no matter if I win or not, I’ll have a drawing for someone to win a fat-eighth bundle of my colors (essentially–my scraps) so you can have some Guccilicious, too! I’ve deactivated comments on this blog post, and will do the same on Monday’s post (so it won’t be confusing where to vote for my bundle), but I’ll let you know when I run the giveaway for my bundle.
See you Monday!
