Thank you all so much for your kind words about my One Hundred Day Project #100daysofcuratedcolour on Instatram – I am so pleased that so many of you are finding enjoyment and inspiration from my curated selections of fabric and haberdashery, using colour palettes from Design Seeds.
I am finally finding the opportunity to use some of my colour moodboards to put together fabrics for some actual stitching, and they are proving to be so helpful.
Here’s the photo I took back on day 26 of the challenge:
Here’s the original Design Seeds photo:
And here’s the patchwork mini-hoop I finished yesterday:
The central patchwork wonky log cabin block is 1.5 inches square, and the hoop is 3 inches across (available from my sponsors Cloud Craft. The fabrics are Kaffe Fassett shot cottons, Kona solids, Kaufman Essex linen and Liberty lawn.
The curated colour pics are proving to be an excellent starting point for me – I’m definitely feeling the benefit! I love it when a plan comes together, don’t you?!
Another week passes! There’s nothing like doing a daily project to make you mindful of the passing time…! If you’re here for the first time – a recap – I’m doing the 100 Day Project on Instagram (#the100dayproject), creating flat lay photos of fabrics and haberdashery based on palettes I glean from Design Seeds. You can see all my collections on my Instagram feed with the tag #100daysofcuratedcolour, and you can also find them, very nicely presented on my Pinterest board – Curated Colours for Stitching Inspiration.

70/100: Design Seeds – Creature Color
I’m always surprised by how much people love the more neutral or single tone palettes. Or maybe I do a better job of them because they are a bit easier. Anyway, 70 was the winner over on Instagram this week, closely followed by 66 and 64. I think I agree with everyone else – what do you think?
The colours have become rather burdensome over the last couple of weeks (there have been so many distractions, not least the lure of General Election chat/angst), but I am so determined to get to 100 that I have pretty much managed to keep up with the daily schedule. I am going to keep on with my colour boards and am hoping that the love comes back a bit, as I reach the final stretch.

58, 61 and 63 all managed to make it into the 100s with Instagram likes, but 61, with those glorious peaches and cream shades, was the winner. I think that 63 is my favourite – I’d love to know yours.
