Vintage Rainbow Mosaics

Rachel of Stitched in Color writes one of my favorite blogs, I have been reading it for years.  I love her approach to what she make and her encouragement with in the sewing community.  I also admire the courage it has taken for her to share all of her families struggles over the last year.

With the help of her sponsors she occasionally has mosaic contests, where participants can create a blend of fabrics that they feel reflect the theme she has described.  The most recent is based on the idea of a Vintage Rainbow and is sponsored by Fabricworm.
