This week's theme of fabric designs based on pointillism provoked a lot of entries that we ended up removing. Though we strive not to be too technical in our interpretation of the Fabric Of the Week themes (to the frustration of the more rule-minded among you, I know), we do want to stress in this case that pointillism is not simply the use of dots to create images. As a style it might be better described as the use of dots (or small strokes) of solid colors placed close together in order to create the impression — because of the blending that happens when the images are viewed at a distance — of even more colors.
It is with apologies to many of the folks who worked hard on their contest entries only to have us remove them from the voting that we've made some attempt to remove fabrics that we felt strayed too far from the idea of pointillism. We still left quite a few entries in, so you'll have no shortage of choices when you're voting.
The entrants this week are:
