Color Play Friday: Pink Poppy

Hello everyone- happy Friday!

For rules and past week’s palettes and bundles, see my Color Play Friday page. 

Also, we now have a monthly Color Play Friday newsletter! In it, you will find a recap of the month’s bundles from Trina and me, updates from both Laurel, Poppy and Pine and In An Otter Life, and announcements about special upcoming events. We have something fun planned for this month, so you’re going to want to check it out!

I took this week’s photo last summer. I had been coming home to this poppy everyday for a while, but on this particular day, I just HAD to snap a photo.

Pink Poppy Palette and Bundle

I wanted to capture the feeling of that hot summer day with birds chirping and bees buzzing through the flowers. Those of you not from the PNW always hear about our rain, but we do actually have a dry spell in late summer-  last year especially. Let just say after last summer, I was happy to get rain and start seeing snow on our mountains again!

The toughest part of this week was finding a fabric with just the right shade of Tiffany blue. Everything I was finding was just a little ‘too blue’. I was thrilled to find the Tamara Kate print with just enough of a green tint to make me happy.

I was really happy this week to discover a new-to-me designer- Dena Fishbein of Dean Designs. Her Teja print was the perfect fabric this week to tie everything else together.

Here are the fabrics I used:

Ann Kelle, Remix in Summer

Bari J, Petals and Plume, Rumpled Sour

Tamara Kate, Nature Walk, Tall Grass

Dena Designs, Kumara Garden, Teja

Timeless Treasures, Pink Flamingo, Triangle Geo in Candy

Francis Newcombe, Cherie, Les-Points in Rose

A note about scale:

  • While I believe scale is a very important part of fabric selection, the fabrics shown in my Color Play images are not always perfectly to scale. I do my best, by you should always double check scale before ordering!

Don’t forget to head over to the other blogs and see what they came up with! The fun of Color Play Friday is seeing the differences and similarities between everyone’s bundles.

Participants this week:

Laurel and Pine (that’s me!)

In An Otter Life

Quilting Mayhem

Sarah Goer Quilts

Quilty Dream

Shimmy and More

You can also head over to my Color Play Friday page to see my palettes and bundles from previous weeks.

Next week’s photo is one of Trina’s  called Minneapolis and can be found on our Pinterest page. 


Are you enjoying Color Play Friday? We’d love for you to get in on the fun and create your own Color Play post! You can create a bundle of fabric, select yarns or embroidery threads, or create a project inspired by our photo. Be sure to let Trina or I know so we can link up to you. You can get in contact with us at

I hope you can join us next week!

Happy Sewing, ~L
