Since our new embroidered fabric Poetry has just been introduced, I wanted to take this opportunity to show a little of what went into the coloring of this fabric.

Every fabric presents a different challenge when putting together color combinations. One would think choosing one embroidery thread color on one ground color would be a simple task- but the trick is to get the right balance between the two colors and to choose colors that would work best for the imagery of the pattern and the quality of the fabric. When all was said and done I had specified about 30 color combinations to be embroidered, though in the end only 5 colors would be selected to be introduced as part of out collection!
When I received the embroidered color trials in the mail, it was like receiving a Christmas present! The colors looked beautiful and I loved how the mill chose to piece them together. 

The mill had sewn all of the ground colors together to make a continuous length of fabric. You can see that the embroidery thread color changed over each different ground color.  It created a magnificent patchwork.

I was trilled! And before cutting apart the trials and sorting them in to groups of colors, the studio had a little fun with them first!
