Whether it’s a ditzy floral print, boho designs fit for home decor (to match the shag carpet at home!) or just the right pattern for a children’s prairie dress, be sure to stick with colors like sapphire blue, ruby red, amethyst purple, citrine yellow, and emerald green for an elevated jewel-toned design.


Overview

This week’s challenge is extra groovy! Hop into your muscle car because we’re taking a trip to the 1970s and challenging you to design a repeating pattern that embodies the free spirit of this decade.
