A little while ago I signed up for the Fat Quarterly Shades of Grey Designer's Challenge. I imagine there will be more of these challenges in the future and you don't have to be a 'real' designer to join in. So if you have the chance, sign up too. It's fun!

Jan DiCintio of Daisy Janie (organic) Fabrics sent each contestant (I think there are about 10 of us) a scrap bag full of scraps of her line Shades of Grey and some nice extra fabric to go with it. I instantly had an idea of what I wanted to make, changed my mind, changed it back again, then thought of something else and returned to something close to the original idea but better. It's half finished now and it certainly was a challenge. It still is a challenge actually because I have been waiting for something I bought on Ebay; an extra (but important) thing to add to the project. If it doesn't arrive in time I will have to think of something else..eeeep! Anyway... next week it will be up on the Fat Quarterly Blog and then I can show you all what I made with these lovely versatile fabrics.


  1. Can't wait to see what you made! And I am blown away that your winner hasn't contacted you :)

  2. Looking forward to seeing what you make...what an interesting line of fabric. Thanks for telling us about it.
