Persimmons + Plums: a mosaic contest

Slow down a minute, my friend, and ponder with me in color.

The warm colors of autumn are gathering in wagons and baskets and hearth. Nature’s bounty glows dusky red, rich purple and and every sticky sweet shade of orange.

Persimmons + Plums.


Bring in the bounty, the rich tapestry of life. Celebrate the colorful pleasures of each fiery autumn day, as night approaches more swiftly, and yet swifter still. Spread a table for those you love, and let us welcome the stranger besides.

Our homes become a cozy shelter on misty days, a dry haven from the cares of the world. With quilts and shawls, sweaters and mittens, we wrap ourselves in fibers that bring physical warmth and colorful comfort. Just like persimmons and plums - comfort fruit, baked in rich pies and cookies to sweeten the blustery world.

Persimmons and plums are lush. Rich in flavor, color and texture. Like the harvest itself, these colors represent a delightful abundance.

So let’s have an autumn party. It’s a harvest hue soirée! You bring the candy corn colors and I’ll bring some fabric dessert for our winners!

We’ll dance the night away with our permission and plum mosaics. Cozy, warm and festive.


Carefully craft your mosaic of 9 fabrics from among the offerings at Winter Creek Cloth. Choose fabrics to express your interpretation of Persimmons + Plums. Make sure to include some version of purple and orange. You may also include other colors that delight your harvest sensibilities..

Once you have chosen your fabrics, use Mosaic MakerBeFunky or the photo collage tool of your choice to create your mosaic.  Save images from Winter Creek Cloth, then upload them to a collage maker to create a mosaic of 9 fabrics total.

To enter the contest, add your mosaic image to our collection here.  If it suits you, link to a blog post or Instagram capture explaining your choices - that helps us spread the word about our contest.  Anyone can enter, anywhere in the world.

Add your mosaic by midnight (PST) October 17th.  You can make up to 2 mosaics!  On Friday the 18th, I'll open voting.  We'll have two winners!  The 2 Top Mosaics will earn a complete fat quarter set of their mosaic fabrics!!!  Winners announced October 22nd.. 

ENJOY!
