So this is it, my entry for the Blogger's Bundle competition, dreamed up by Laura of Quokka Quilts in partnership with The Fat Quarter Shop, who promised a prize consisting of half a yard of each of the winner's fabrics, that's 15 half yards of fabric! Awesome!! ... and then they went and trippled the prizes, so there are now 3 chances to win! Fantastico!!!!!!
So here's my entry. As far as I'm aware you can only submit one entry. If I'm wrong I may be back with a jazz-inspired selection, but here for now is my bundle.
I started by browsing Fat Quarter Shop for fabrics whose names connected with me for one reason or another. That's where the cupcake came from, for example! Then when I felt the first selection looked a bit washed out, I went with ones I could see, which means strong colours and good contrasts. In common with a lot of male quilters (apparently) I like geometrically inspired designs, so much of the contrasts went with that kind of pattern.
I'll post the mosaic which I followed Laura's suggestion and went to the free online tool at http://bighugelabs.com/mosaic.php - it's easy to use and lets you save the result to your computer. Then, as per the rules, I list the fabrics and their SKU codes so that when I win the Fat Quarter Shop will know which fabrics to put in my bundle. Then, as an extra, I re-post the mosaic in my own table so that any visually challenged people can move through it one cell at a time and any screen reading software should be able to announce the name of the fabric from the tags I put on each image ... so that will give a better idea of the layout I put them in.
