Championship Game: Carnival vs. Banff National Park


Carnival 
By Shelley Brooks of A Pigeon in Pungo (IG: @shelleybrooksquilt)
"Carnival is a spring fresh array of solid colors that are so sweet you can almost taste them.  Cotton candy, snow cones, and ferris wheels all evoke fun memories and this combo is reminiscent of the colors found at those spring festivals. Ombre shades of pinks and purples paired with light shades of green and blue are balanced out with a silvery grey to create the Carnival palette."
Fabrics (from left): 121-016 Pale Silver, 121-073 Sangria, 121-078 Bubble Gum, 121-069 Carnation, 121-076 Apple Green, 121-040 Bright Aqua, 121-029 Lavender, 121-080 Amethyst


vs.

Banff National Park
By Lorna McMahon of Sew Fresh Quilts (IG: @sewfreshquilts)
"I am naturally drawn to a color palette that includes blues and greens. Think cool waters. A lake. And the clear, blue sky. The yellow adds contrast. Think of the warmth of the sunlight and new spring growth. The white and grey additions provide depth. Think of rocky mountains and fluffy, lazy clouds. Picture perfect. Nature."
Fabrics (from top): 121-000 White, 121-005 Bright Yellow, 121-061 Wasabi, 121-062 Pale Aqua, 121-040 Bright Aqua, 121-016 Pale Silver, 121-010 Silver, 121-014 Grey

Good luck to both Shelley and Lorna!
Make sure to vote for a chance to win a bundle of the championship fabrics for yourself!
