Ice Parfait
Fabric Mosaic Contest

Ice Parfait {Mosaic Contest}

Rachel @Stitched in Color as another mosaic contest, with the theme this time being Ice Parfait. The contest is sponsored by Cuts of Cotton, and I had fun putting together my submissions this afternoon.

My first submission focuses on ice and winter weather, on the coloration of the sky and outdoors after a heavy snow, and on how muted and blurred the world can be when covered by fresh frost. I especially like the subtle textures in this grouping.



L to R, top to bottom: 1. Architextures | Crosshatch | Grey 2. Architextures | Crosshatch | Fog 3. Architextures | Crosshatch | White 4. Architextures | Crosshatch | Lake 5. Doe | Weave | White 6. Doe | Breeze | Sky 7. Doe | Breeze | White 8. Oval Elements | Powder Blue 9. Architextures | Crosshatch | Shadow

My second submission hits the full spectrum of the ice parfait theme, for me. It is a subdued and softly rendered color palette to juxtapose the vibrant and sometimes hard and bright colors of summer.

And fair warning to anyone looking to join in on the challenge, I had lots of fun but spent over an hour cultivating and documenting my selections. 🙂

    I have to stay away from these, they just eat time! The one and only occasion I gave in to temptation I played around with it for over 2 hours! Nice theme for one though, I think I like your first selection best.

    This looks like fun! The top one definitely reminds me of snow! The second one reminds me of butter pecan ice cream!

    I always love your take on the seasonal fabrics. I tend toward the more traditional, and I love your first selection. 🙂

    That first group is SPOT ON for the colors I feel when I look at the temp and realize it’s well below freezing. Is it summer yet?

    Fabric 6 in the first one caught my eye – like water or swirling snow that has been frozen into those horizontal lines! Great choice. Very beautiful with your other selections, too!!
