Daddy-O, Week 3 - Fat Quarter Idol

This is the third week of Fat Quarter Idol at Sew,Mama,Sew!. And this weeks theme is Daddy-O. First off I think of my husband, who is a young daddy. So I wanted to choose very young looking masculine prints.


I picked out about 36 different fabrics, opened the images up in Photoshop and put them all together in a collage. One by one I got rid of fabrics, till I had my final twelve.

Here were my final choices which can all be found at the Sew,Mama,Sew! shop.

  1. Dash Stripe Cloud Poppy ~ A Walk in the Woods
  2. Shine Lead ~ Cocoon
  3. Birch Blue ~ Habitat
  4. A Ghastlie Angle Natural ~ The Ghastlies
  5. Composition Book Apple ~ School Days
  6. Daisy's Dates Patriotic Vanilla ~ Reunion
  7. Weave Coal ~ Summersville
  8. Dot N' Square Orange ~ Kitchen Collection
  9. Tic Tac Check Shade Grey ~ Quilt Blocks
  10. Striped Black ~ Color Me
  11. Chinese Red 1480 ~ Kona Cotton
  12. Charcoal 1071 ~ Kona Cotton

You can see my final choices on my Pinterest Board for Daddy-O. Can't wait for next weeks challenge!
