Today's post is all about dark fabrics that are perfect for representing night or contrast in your projects. First up is a new Shades Pack.
Midnight Shades Pack
I introduced the Midnight Gradient (see below) a few months ago. This is absolutely my new favorite blue so I just had to make it into a Shades Pack too. This blue is so dark that I can custom dye more than 5 steps inf you need. This could easily go to 8 or 9 steps, like the Black Shades Pack. If you want more steps just send me a message and I can get it dyed for you.
Fabric of the Week
To celebrate the new Shades Pack I'm offering the inspiration fabric, Midnight Gradient, at 20% off this week! Midnight Gradient is on sale through Sunday or as long as supplies last.
Back in Stock
Continuing in the theme of darkness I have the Black and Gray Skies Gradients are back in stock this week. I'm working hard to get all the gradients back in stock that sold out in the August sale. Stocks should be back to normal by the end of September.
The Gray Skies Gradient is the light end of the Black Gradient. The darkest shade in Gray Skies is the middle shade of Black. These were dyed on the same day with the same dye lot so it's the rare time that the 2 fabrics perfectly match.
Jane Sleeva used Black and Gray Skies Gradients along with Blue Skies and Coppermine in her Perkins Quilt. The quilt was inspired by a painting by Philip Perkins. You can see the painting here.

The Midnight fabrics are gorgeous! I know how much work it is to dye blues. The color you got is amazing!

I love that deep rich blue. The three darkest shades of this would be so perfect for a background fabric to make some brights really pop. It would be different than black, adding a twist to the idea.
