Printed Fabric Bee Giveaway Time!

Queen Bee here, announcing the monthly fabric giveaway.

Each month a member of the Printed Fabric Bee is crowned Queen Bee. She chooses a theme and a color palette and the other 9 worker bees create a small piece of original fabric for her. But we like to share the wealth so we each create a 6″ x 6″ swatch that goes into the monthly giveaway. All you need to do to win is to leave a comment here on my blog or on the Printed Fabric Bee FB page by March 15th.

My theme for the month of February was mosaics. I chose a color palette inspired by this Antoni Gaudi mosaic.


The worker bees did an amazing job and my fabric is winging its way to me as I write.

Enter a comment here on my blog by March 15th. Maybe YOU will be this months winner of a set of mosaic fabric swatches by 9 renowned fabric artists!
