This week's news is all about gradients. I've been inspired lately to design some new gradient designs and I have 2 of those to share today.
If you read the blog regularly you will remember the sunflower-themed gifts that I made for my friend. Those colors really stuck with me and I took those to design this new gradient. It reminds me a field of sunflowers in full bloom.
As I was looking back through my dye binder I landed on a beautiful soft pink that I accidentally developed a few years ago. I decided that I wanted to bring it to life in a new gradient. The colors remind my of vintage fabrics with giant cabbage roses and that's how this beauty got it's name. It would make lovely rose petals and leaves in an floral applique.
Fabric of the Week
One of the fabrics that I was supposed to dye last week was a restock of the On The Horizon gradient. Each of my gradients have 6 - 7 colors and the first one that I spread on this fabric was put in the wrong place! It's still a beautiful fabric but it's NOT On The Horizon! As a result, this new one is going directly to Clearance at 25% off. When it's gone, hopefully it will not be back!
