Another Mosaic Contest - Ethereal Spring

Stitched in Color is once again having a color mosaic contest, sponsored by Lark Cottons  The theme this time is Ethereal... Think soft, lovely colors; uplifting pastels in a variety of colors.  The winner receives a FQ bundle of their fabric choices.  I spent some time choosing my fabrics and ultimately created three bundles.

#1:  Soft pinks and greens recall lazy spring days basking in the warming sunshine and enjoying all that this time of year has to offer.

Which two mosaics are your favorite? free polls 

While you're at it, be sure to make your own mosaic before April 3rd for a chance to win!

Happy Quilting!


  1. Oh, my favorite was the first one! Love the way you brought together some novelty prints (horses, gnomes and strawberries) but in a way that wasn't overpowering =)

    1. Wow! Thanks Rachel. When I scrolled through all the postings I saw lots of mosaics with those colors so I decided to pass on uploading it. I guess next time, I'll just have to go with my gut!


I love hearing from you!
