COLOR – Lovely, vibrant, dazzling & wonderful color…

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!!!

Showing the full width of the fabric and it’s repeat. Measures approximately 44″ x 24″ from selvedge to selvedge.

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!

5″ Sections from the repeat of the fabric… pretty fabulous!

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.

What are you most thankful for???

I am thankful for…  so many things.  I make it a point before I go to bed each night to think of something I was especially grateful for that day.  Of course, there are days of sunshine and days of shadows, but there is ALWAYS something to appreciate.

Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you’ll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you’ll find that you have more of it.
