I was looking through some photos on the internet recently and was inspired by the ocher and red colors of Marrakesh. I have gradients on golds and oranges so I wanted to add the deep blue of the ocean to this one. I love how it turned out and I hope that you will too! You can find Marrakesh in the shop.
Fabric of the Week
The fabric of the week this week is the Violet Shades Pack. It has absolutely nothing to do with the new Marrakesh gradient, but it will make beautiful flower appliques for other sky gradients, like the Blue Sky gradient below. Violet is 20% off through Sunday.
Back In Stock
Black yardage is back! It's a deep black but still had some beautiful, subtle texture. It's sold by the yard.
Blue Sky Gradient is the most popular gradient for sky backgrounds and it's back in stock. In her piece, Sky Meets Earth, Patricia Caldwell combined Blue Sky with Coffee and Cocoa.
Forest Canopy is also back in stock. Leslie McNeil used Forest Canopy wholecloth as a base for beautiful couching and quilting in this lovely table runner. Forest Canopy also coordinates with the Woodlands Gradient.
