I was chatting with Brenda over at Pink Castle Fabrics and had an idea of something fun to get you guys involved with.
You know the fantastic blogger bundles she has in her store? Like this one and this one
If you were chief bundle maker what would you choose?
Well, here's your chance to give it a go.
Pick a selection of 12 fabrics in Brenda's store (use the etsy shop or website or both), make a mosaic using the mosaic maker at big huge labs and blog about it (or upload your mosaic to flickr). Then come back and tell me using the linky tool (at the bottom of this page) that you've done so.
The contest is open until March 31st and the 2 winners will each win their own bundle AND get that very same bundle listed in Brenda's store! Fame at last!
Not sure how to make a mosaic? Here's a quick (rough!) guide. First you need to 'borrow' the pictures of the fabrics you like from Pink Castle Fabrics. Either save them to your desktop, or right click to copy them. Don't forget to note what the fabric is called too! You can then upload the photos one by one to the mosaic maker at big huge labs. Just follow the instructions and you'll be good to go. It's really self explanatory - I swear! Small Print - You can enter more than once, but can only win one prize (there's nothing stopping you entering a few bundles though, just to increase you chances, is there?!) International entries are welcome, Brenda's decision on winners is final. If a fabric isn't available a suitable replacement of equal quality will be used.
This is mine, I call it England's Skies, because right now as I'm writing this the sky is a strange greyish brown beige. It's almost dusk and the early evening sun is trying to shine through the clouds, but not quite managing it. That sounds all a bit deep and artsy. I'm not sure I like that. Anyway - that's what it reminds me of, and a neutral bundle is always handy to have on hand - you could add in a splash of any other colour to this stash building set and make a really lovely calming quilt.
Although I can't actually enter the contest (obviously!) - it's just for fun.
The fabrics I used are;
Top row, left to right;
dumb dot in Charcoal
fly a kite damask in brown
herringbone in maple tan
Second row left to right;
vintage ironwork in khaki
quilters linen straw
quilters linen gray
Third row, left to right;
lock and key in khaki
seeds in gray
hometown news in cream
Fourth row, left to right;
daisy's dates in graphite
circle stripes in cloud gray
lace in mud
Don't forget if you order anything from pink castle on etsy use KATY15 as a code on check out to get 15% off your order.
(Edited to add - the idea for this contest was based on the fortnightly fabric pack feature we used to put together at Fat Quarterly and the fabulous contest Laura had recently on her blog)
