What is cheerful? What is bold? What is strong, yet simple; never cold? What pop of color always makes a room shine? What hue is a very, very favorite of mine?
Yellow. Unabashedly, yellow. So far from dull.

Dream with me a dream of yellow... a pop, a bucketful, a hint, a meadow. Find yellow close to earth in warm taupe, rich brown, fresh green, summer peach. Hello, yellow! Center stage, as always.

A classic hue, primary at its best. Pairs well with red, with blue (and all the rest). Reserve yourself to stately schemes, add lots of neutrals. Set sail, safe and at ease.

or, OR... punch it up with gray like ice. Mix in modern shapes, all the colors, everything you like! Yellow layers, fearless of finding itself lost. Irresistibly fun, dramatic, even. However can you go wrong?

Which is why I so love yellow, actually - you can. not. go. wrong. It mixes well with ANYTHING. It's too confident to be dissuaded by paltry matters of color theory. And then... another day, it comes on sweetly, with a charming note that belies its strength.
Yellow. Unabashedly, yellow. My most versatile friend.
Carefully craft your mosaic of 12 fabrics from among the offerings at Fabric Spot. Choose fabrics to express your interpretation of Unabashedly Yellow. Your collection of fabrics can colorful, subdued, fairly neutral, incorporate solids or prints or both. Just make sure to include yellow in a way that makes a presence.
Once you have chosen your fabrics, the free Mosaic Maker tool makes it a snap to create a mosaic by copy and pasting image url's from Fabric Spot. To find url's first go to the item page, then right click on the image you want and choose "copy image URL".
To enter the contest, add your mosaic image to our collection here. If it suits you, link to a blog post explaining your choices - that helps us spread the word about our contest. But no blog post is required (you can put your image url in the url space). Anyone can enter, anywhere in the world.
