Spring Palette Inspiration Board

Colette Patterns Fall Palette Challenge

Colette Patterns is having a Spring and Summer Palette Challenge and those that are interested are making mood boards as a way of organizing their colors and ideas for upcoming sewing projects. I don't know about you, but when I get inspired by color it isn't necessarily JUST from fabrics. I get inspired by colors everywhere! My mood board below shows just that :) Keep in mind, this is based on color only, I'm not saying that I want to sew up the clothing that is featured.


I'm so cliche sewing up pastels for spring ;)

  1. Aah, your mood board is gorgeous! Pastels for spring might be predictable, but the ones you've picked are lovely. :)

  2. I always wonder where people find the gorgeous images they use in their palette (not to mention the photoshop wizardry involved in putting them together).. care to share your secrets?

    By the way, gorgeous palette, those are some of my favourite colours! In fact I put together a palette recently on my blog which featured some of the same :)

    1. Thanks, Johanna!

      I found all my images on Pinterest by just clicking around. If you're not on there you need to be! I get so many cool ideas from the site. As for the layout, I did not use Photoshop. In fact, I hate Photoshop and try to avoid it when possible. I'm an InDesign kind of lady :)

  3. Love it! Such a soft way to step into spring with good ol' pastels! I must also follow on from Johanna above me and ask how do you make your gorgeous mood boards?

    1. Hi Amanda! I found my images on Pinterest, one of my favorite websites. The layout is designed in Adobe InDesign. I have a degree in Graphic Communication, so sometimes I nerd out on this stuff.

  7. Oh your colors are so dead on for spring!!! I swear these are the colors I go after every year when the weather starts to warm up. Pastels are cliche for a reason...because they ALWAYS say spring!! Beautiful.

  10. It is cliche but I've been very into pastels as well, especially mint green. So is it any surprise I love you color palette. Nope!

  11. I do so love these colors. Yes, they are pastel, but they are warmer pastels and very pretty ones. I especially like the green. It could be because I recently acquired six yards of broadcloth in the same exact shade. lol

    Good luck on the challenge.

  12. Cliche or not, these colors are totally you! Also, thank goodness I'm not behind on my Taffy!!! I should whip that up soon, just so I don't let it languish...
