#12Days of Color Grande Finale!


#12Days of Color Grande Finale!

12 days of color logo

Well, peeps, I have chosen the winners and I am sending out emails right now. As soon as I get mailing addresses from everyone I will make the final announcements of the winners here on the  blog.  So be hopeful and look for an email with the heading #12daysofcolor (or something like that!) in your inbox.  I will wait a couple of days to hear back from everyone, so please email me back asap, so I don’t go onto the runner-up for your prize!  I was going to draw names on Jan 1st, but it took me most of that day to get Motivated to De-Christmastize the house and then a few more days to really finish that process up!

So for NOW… are some pictures of the blocks in big groups with their siblings. A lot of you wanted to see them like that. They are in no certain order and just laid loosely out on the back patio without a lot of care or precision. It was cold out there, and I had to keep chasing the cats away.  It has been pretty dark and wet and dreary here, so the lighting is not the best, but you can get the idea… (and on one of my monitors they look all pale and the other one they look fine….so I hope you have a great monitor!)

The Kona Blocks — and yes those two aqua and grey blocks are DIFFERENT aquas and greys, in fact all of those blues that look like each other, are actually different, some more noticeable than others:

D12days all Kona blocks

The True Color Blocks:

D12days all True Color blocks

The Michael Miller Blocks:

D12days all MMF

The Grunge Blocks:

So thanks again to the great companies that helped make this event possible:

    proud winner here too! The grunge turned out the best in the photos. But, the true colors leave a lot to play with for sashings and borders. And, I always love kona fabrics. And, that horse in the Michael Miller is still my favorite. You have done a lot of work and it has been fun following along and seeing all your work.

    Thanks for the fun-to-get e-mail! The True Colors set is amazing. I really thought the Grunge set would be my favorite, but seeing them all together like that, I guess I’m just a print person at heart.:)

  • The True Colors quilt is my favorite! It is amazing that I wasn’t really please by the individual blocks but the end composition is beautiful! Thank you for sharing your knowledge of Color with all of us. It was great fun! Maybe a Blog Hop of Color for next year?

    Thanks for the email! :-) It’s great to see all the blocks. Laid out in their groups like that. I think I prefer the Grunge group now they’re all together.

    I love the true color blocks all together. I was one of the lucky winners and again thank you.

  • Thanks for posting those blocks all together. It’s one thing to view each block on it’s own, but they take on a whole different impact when combined with it’s siblings.

  • Thanks for an email :) and for posting the block ‘families’. I must admit your blocks have convinced me to try the grunge fabrics. there is a subtlety about the colour intensity changing that I really like in the blocks. Can I say I’m surprised how good the blocks look together? Which is another great lesson about colour – how well colours can play together if you let them!

    Hi Scott, Sorry for the rain. I like the true colors best. I know, I need to think outside the box.

  • Thanks for the winnermail! I just love seeing these all together like this! You put so much work into these blocks and the posts, it really gave us all a lot to learn from. I’m not sure if I could pick my fave, but I’m leaning toward the Ture Colors, and the Grunge, sigh…..and the others too. Nope, they ALL are fabulous, and a great reference.
