This year I want to focusing on creating new color gradations in my fabric line and implementing them in my new quilts. I have already added one new color gradation to the fabric page on my website, Purple Plum. I want to add new gradations each month for the rest of this year. I hope you will find time to look at the fabric gradations and send me a comment. I would love to hear from you. Perhaps you have an idea for a color gradation that I might try. Please blog or email me your ideas.
To Celebrate 2013 all our fabric gradations will be on sale through the month of January for$20.13. How appropriate to start the new year.
A good way to start out the new year is with a 1/2 yard of rainbow gradation and 1/2 yard of blackened rainbow gradation. I use these two fabrics all the time when I am working on my art pieces. They allow me so many color choices that all work well together.
