Color Play Friday: Minneapolis

Hi guys! Hope your week is going well. I’m working on a fun, secret project this week.  You may have seen glimpses on my Instagram account.

If you’re new to Color Play Friday, head over to my Color Play Friday page to see the rules and my palettes and bundles from previous weeks.

This week’s photo was taken by Trina.  I picked it because of the great greens in the photo. With St. Patrick’s Day nearing, I’ve been wanting to play with green a lot.

Minneapolis Palette and Bundle

I originally planned on a mostly green bundle with maybe a little gray or blue, but as I went along, I realized I wanted more blue in there. I ended up with a bundle that has just as much blue as green, and no gray at all. It’s seems funny to me, since the focal point of the photo is this amazing gray building.

All of my fabrics this week came from Stash Fabrics.  I had fun this week playing around with their design wall feature. It was great to be able to save fabric choices with a click, move them around, and enlarge them to really see how the fabrics I was picking worked together. Here’s what I chose:

Leah Duncan, Lore, Anecdote in Gray

Carolyn Friedlander, Architextures, Crosshatch in Cadet

Tula Pink, Moon Shine, Dear Me in Indigo

Micheal Miller, Ta Dot in Moss

LB Krueger, Downtown, Tonal Floral in Green

Sarah Watts, Tokyo Train Ride, Fox Shrine in Green

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.

  1. I love this one. Blues and greens are right up my alley. Like Trina commented, that Tula fabric really pulls it all together. Love it!
