I'm in the mood to make a bunch of new gradients so I've been scouring the interwebs and my own photos for inspiration. Succulents is my first new gradient of 2021 and I love it! There's loads of texture in this one for a background or fussy cutting. The inspiration (and name) for this one came from the popular Design Seeds website. It's such a wonderful resource and I'm sure that between us we have spent endless hours there looking for color inspiration.
Gradients Back In Stock
Keeping my focus on Gradients I've got 2 gradients back in stock.
Artist Patricia Caldwell has worked with Sunshine and Shadows in several of her art quilts but I think my favorite is this one, Copper Trails. I think it uses the gradient beautifully.
Sunshine and Shadows is also a nice representation of the Pantone 2021 colors of the year, Ultimate Gray and Illuminating.
Coleus Gradient was inspired by some of my Grandmother's favorite plants. Becky Brown used this gradient to create a fabric painting of one of her favorite flowers, the Daylily.
