The color for February will be brown, and just to mix things up a bit, I am encouraging the addition of pink accents. With the help of Vicki Welsh, I designed this palette called sheep which I am ready
to use for my column along blocks for February. I have a nice simple pattern planned for this month, which should create a great secondary design. Hopefully the tutorial will be ready soon.
Thanks to Vicki, I also have a hand dyed bundle of fabric ready to give away to one lucky blog reader. You will notice that it is not the same as the inspiration palette for the month. A funny thing happened while Vicki was dying the Rainbow Scrap Challenge fabric for this year. She had just finished dyeing all of the necessary fabrics, along with one for the giveaway and one for her to keep when she found two more orders hiding in the line. So the giveaway fabric is inspired by the colors, but not the same. This gradient is called Harvest Moon and has brown in it along with orange and black. To enter the random drawing for this fabric bundle, just leave a comment on this post with the name of your favorite kind of chocolate. I just love junior mints. They are my favorite movie time treat.
