Mad For Solids - Final Four

I certainly am MAD FOR SOLIDS!

And so grateful to you my fellow fabric lovers. Your support means a lot!

This past week has been a tense (but friendly) competition between myself and 15 other quilting bloggers. Some of whom are some very close bloggy friends. Mad for Solids is a competition sponsored by Paintbrush Studio. Each of us 16 bloggers have selected a palette of 8 solids from the Inspired by Fabric's Painter's Palette Solids.

And now it's down to the FINAL FOUR!

Voting for the Final Four games
(Carnival vs. Tropical Storm and Banff National Park vs. Pop of Orchid)
will run Monday, April 11 from 12 pm CST through Tuesday 11:59 am CST.

Please hop over to the Inspired by Fabric blog here to see today's post.

I am hoping to be able to count on you for your vote!
And wish you the best of luck in winning some sweet solids all your very own!

Voting for the Championship Game will run Tuesday, April 12 from 12 pm CST through Wednesday at 11:59 am CST. On Wednesday afternoon (April 13th), we'll announce the winning palette! Everyone who votes in the Championship game will be eligible to win a bundle of 1-yard cuts from the winning palette!

Fabrics (from top): 121-000 White, 121-005 Bright Yellow, 121-061 Wasabi, 121-062 Pale Aqua, 121-040 Bright Aqua, 121-016 Pale Silver, 121-010 Silver, 121-014 Grey

My bundle is called Banff National Park and was inspired by this photo found online.

I am naturally drawn to a color palette that includes blues and greens. Think cool waters. A lake. And the clear, blue sky. The yellow adds contrast. Think of the warmth of the sunlight and new spring growth. The white and grey additions provide depth. Think of rocky mountains and fluffy, lazy clouds. Picture perfect. Nature.
