March Madness Palette Contest with Paintbrush Studio Fabrcis

March 31, 2016

Cover Photo for the March Madness Bracket


I have really enjoyed working with Paintbrush Studio Fabrics this past month.  They have just released a new line of solids, and I am in love with the quality: the weight, vibrancy and hand of the fabric is beautiful.

So when they reached out and asked if I wanted to choose a palette of my own for their March Madness competition, I was thrilled!

What is this March Madness competition?  Paintbrush Studio Fabrics has selected 16 bloggers to participate in a little competition on their blog, Inspired By Fabric.  The bloggers will be pitted head to head, just like a true March Madness Basketball bracket, and readers can vote for their favorite palettes until there is one blogger left standing. Today is my day for my palette to appear on the Inspired By Fabric blog for voting.

Here are some of the photos I used for inspiration, taken by my dear friend Kitty, who is an amazing quilt and nature photographer.

Of course, like any good competition, there are prizes involved! The lucky voters will win a fat quarter bundle of 8 fabrics from the winning palette! So please click on the March Madness button below to cast your vote. And if you choose to vote for my palette, please say you’re voting for Stephanie Palmer from Late Night Quilter.  Apparently there are 3 Stephanies competing!
