::Voting:: Softly Against Black

It's time!  I was so very impressed by all the gorgeous fabric mosaics you've created from among the enticing offerings at Fresh Modern Fabric!  By last night's deadline there were 92 submissions.  I've narrowed it down to 16 finalists, choosing mosaics that spoke to me of the Softly Against Black prompt, while feeling cohesive and inspiring.  I had a little advisory board too, in hopes of choosing finalists with a wide range of tastes. 

Enjoy perusing these lovely mosaics!  I've presented them first at large size to help you find your very most favorite one, with the name of the artist under each mosaic.  Voting is below with smaller images for reference.  Vote now through midnight (eastern U.S. time) on Sunday the 23rd.   The two winning mosaics with the most votes will be announced on Monday.

Good luck everyone!

    1. Haha! My husband saw your name as I was looking through the list and was like "I'm voting for that one!" We own a few Texas Stangs. A 68 and a 98. :)

    2. How funny! I'm still a HUGE fan and would some day like to have a '68 to restore. My second car was a '96, candy apple red stang, and we had so much fun together! Thank your hubby for the vote!

  13. What a hard decision..All 16 had combinations that I really liked. I ended up choosing the one that I knew I could live with day in and out and feel happy/relaxed with all the time.
    All of you have great color sense & I'm going to find your blogs & check your work out.

  15. I had a hard time choosing between two choices. But I found my favourite. 'Though the second one is not really a second. I would have voted for both if there were a chance. I tend to chose the vibrant choices like Amy in UK or Describe Happy.
