Mad for Solids: Elite Eight and Round 2, Day 1 Voting!

Welcome to the Elite Eight of our Mad for Solids bracket! 
We've been reading in the comments that voting is tough--so many palettes to love--and we agree! 
Voting for this second round begins today, so keep reading below the bracket so you can cast your vote in the comments section. 


Here's the bracket updated to the Elite Eight:

Congratulations to our winners! 


We have two Elite Eight games today. 
Voting for these games is now closed. 
Look at the bundles and choose your favorite for each game. Leave a comment below with your picks for both games. Please list the bundle name and the name of the bundle creator, as we have several duplicate names and want to make sure your vote counts. Please vote only once per game. Voting for these two games is open from 12 pm CST on 4/6 through 11:59 am CST on 4/7. 

Game 1: 
Carnival vs. Fire and Ice 
Choose your favorite and leave a comment below with the name of the bundle and the name of the bundle creator.



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.

Fire and Ice
By Stephanie Ruyle of Spontaneous Threads (IG: @spontaneousthreads)
"I chose this bundle because it plays of some of my favorite colors (oranges and pink) against cerulean blues and yellow greens. The three closely matched neutrals are a calm palette and a great background trio to mix."
Fabrics (from top): 121-059 Bronze, 121-053 Paprika, 121-073 Sangria, 121-077 Moss, 121-050 Cadet, 121-011 Mist, 121-016 Pale Silver, 121-010 Silver


Game 2: 
Sanctuary vs. Tropical Storm
Choose your favorite and leave a comment below with the name of the bundle and the name of the bundle creator.



Sanctuary
by Jackie Skarrit (IG: @jskarritt)
"Every summer we work with sea turtles on Anna Maria Island off the Florida coast. This grouping of fabrics reminds me of the beaches, sea and skies on that beautiful island."
Fabrics (from left): 121-013 Teal, 121-025 River, 121-039 Jade, 121-076 Apple Green, 121-072 Honey Dew, 121-054 Tangerine, 121-011 Mist, 121-066 Lipstick

vs.

Tropical Storm
By Anne Sullivan of Play Crafts (IG: @playcrafts)
"After a long winter, I was ready for some bright colors! I paired warm sunset colors with tropical water blues then added two greys for balance. It reminds me of sipping umbrella drinks on the beach during a tropical storm."

Fabrics (from left): 121-013 Teal, 121-039 Jade, 121-058 Gold, 121-054 Tangerine, 121-068 Rosebud, 121-028 Red Violet, 121-090 Smoke, 121-011 Mist
