One of my favorite things, besides fabric (of course) and print/pattern (of course) is color.
I LOVE COLOR!
I remember opening up my new crayon box and sitting there studying the crayons as if they were color chips. I didn’t dare use my favorite colors, and, ummmm, every color was my favorite! 🙂 Fortunately, I was lucky enough to have multiple sets of crayons. There was one that was dedicated for “show only”. Kind of like your mom’s “good scissors” that were only for fabric. I still think twice before using my scissors – every time!!!
Things haven’t changed much, I still love staring at color and I found my niche working here! I’m so lucky!
So…when I saw this collection of “basics” or “blenders” by Dan Morris, I immediately fell in love. This is my visual Ode to Scrollscapes and I hope you enjoy it!
This is my favorite color from Scrollscapes, Teal! It’s so pretty!!!
Below, I took samples from the fabric to show the variations within the selvedge to selvedge repeat! So many great options. It’s really a bunch of fabrics in one!
I’ll be back next week to talk a little more about colors, color stories and how to pick the perfect palette for your next project!
Next week, I’ll announce a new contest where you could be the winner of a fat quarter of each of these colors! Come on back, we want to spoil you with fabulous, colorful, Scrollscapes fabrics!
Sunset is still my favorite color, and rainbow is second.
