It reflects my ongoing frustration with the contest themes and voting whims. I have since decided that although I will sometimes enter contests for the challenge of designing something, I don't feel bound to them and I'm not going for "popular" when I do my designs anymore. If someone wants to buy them, fine, but they are more about what appeals to me at the moment or what technique I want to work on. My regularly dismal contest placement since taking this approach reflects this creative independence - and sales are better than ever.
I can't tell from the image - are all of these stripes the same color of navy? And when I view the yard size, it looks like there is a gap in the pattern every 11 inches or so...is this true? This could be exactly what I'm looking for, but the gap would cause a problem. Thanks for your help!
