Mad for Solids: Final Four (+ Game 1 Voting!)

Welcome to our Mad for Solids Bracket! 
We've asked 16 designers to select 8-fabric palettes of Painter's Palette Solids. We have our Final Four, and now voting will help determine which palettes are in the Championship game. We're asking you to help us choose the favorite!

We're now down to just four color palettes, and the voting won't get any easier! We've also raised the stakes! Everyone who votes in the Championship Game (starts Sunday at 6 pm CDT) will have a chance to win a fat quarter bundle of the winning palette. But even if you don’t win, you can still play with these colorful combinations!

After we announce the Champion on Monday, we’ll be selling fat quarter bundles of the four Painter's Palette Solids color palettes that made it to the Final Four. Any of these Final Four palettes can be yours! Watch for more details Monday. 

And now, here's our Final Four: 

You can vote in three different ways: 
1. Leave a comment here on the blog.
2. Vote on our Facebook page.

One vote per person per platform, please. 

  Voting for this game has now ended. Thank you!

Voting is open from 6 pm CDT Friday, March 30th through 5:59 pm CDT Saturday, March 31st.

Final Four Game 1

Heirloom Opal
From top: Amethyst, Royal, River, Aruba, Cyan, Honeydew, Apple Green, Android
Have you ever seen an Australian opal?  From a dark background that's maybe black or darkest purple comes flashing bits of color in greens, blues, and turquoise.  It reminds me of the Northern Lights - a phenomena I've never personally seen but would love to.  The beauty of an opal is that you have this miraculous combination of colors and glowing light contained in a piece of jewelry.  Almost makes it seem magical to wear one.  I've been working on a pattern to, hopefully, illustrate the beauty and sparkle.  Check my feed to see how this beautiful stack of colors will be transformed....

Inspired my childhood in the 1980's, all the great things I loved, flamingos, Sanrio, Little Twin Star, plastic charms, stickers, boom boxes, Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears.  Taking all those memories and updating the color palette into something a little more modern and totally 2018.
