Vintage Rainbow Mosaic Contest

Have you seen the contest that Rachel over at Stitched in Color is hosting? It’s sponsored by Fabricworm and is a fun exercise in fabric selection inspired by the theme ‘Vintage Rainbow’.

If you’ve been following me long, you know that creating bundles is something I do a lot with Color Play Fridays. I thought this would be a fun change, though, since I’m not limited at all in palette, other than trying to stay focused on the Vintage Rainbow theme.

So, here is my entry for the contest:


Laurel Poppy and Pine Vintage Rainbow Contest


I unintentionally ended up with something that looked more like a study in muted primary colors, but I was so happy with it that I stuck it out.  Also, Rachel makes it clear that we’re going for ‘colorful vintage charm’ over getting every single color in the rainbow. So I used teals, corals, mustard yellows and grey for balance. I also used a lot of florals because they always look vintage to me!

The contest is going on for another day, so there’s still time to make your mosaic for a chance to win pretty fabrics!  Head on over to Stitched in Color to see all the rules and to enter.
