Fall For Solids!
It's fall here in Michigan. The nights are chilly, the leaves are a-turning, we all want to snuggle under our crinkly quilts, and here at Pink Castle Fabrics we thought this would be an excellent time to launch our Fall For Solids contest! What's that, you ask?
Fall For Solids is a series and contest all about solid fabrics! We love solids, and we want you to fall for them too. :)
Starting today and running through November 26th, Fall For Solids is all about celebrating solids. We're going to be doing some spotlight posts on the brands of solid fabrics that we carry, talk a little about what a solid IS and ISN'T and coolest of all, we're hosting a Fall For Solids contest over at Threadbias.
In this first week of solids-excitement, we're going to put up a lot of posts. You'll see a Solids 101 post, you can start reading profiles of our fabulous guest judges, we're going to tell you more about the Threadbias site and how we're going to use it, and you can learn more about the sweet prizes you could be in the running to win.
In the meantime, let me give you the lowdown on the contest details:
To be a part of the Fall For Solids contest, you can enter one pillow and/or one mini-quilt. Whatever project you create should be made of all solid fabrics. Pillow tops should be pieced and quilted, and quilts should be quilted and bound with a maximum perimeter of 120". We have six terrific guest judges lined up: Elizabeth Dackson of Don't Call Me Betsy (my lovely co-host), Katy Jones from I'm A Ginger Monkey, Kati Spencer of From The Blue Chair, Debbie Grifka from Esch House Quilts, Holly DeGroot from Bijou Lovely Designs, and Shea Henderson of Empty Bobbin Sewing. They're going to pick one quilt winner and one pillow winner to win PRIZES. And guess what?! YOU are also going to pick one quilt winner and one pillow winner to win prizes by entering projects and voting for projects on Threadbias. That's four prizes total. Learn even more about the contest on the Threadbias contest page, and stay tuned to the Pink Castle blog for more info.
Last but not least, here's some colorful solid sewing inspiration to get you started:
