Color Play Friday: Tulsa Rose Garden

Happy Friday, everyone!  We’re just finishing up Spring Break around my house. It was a great break for the kids, and it was nice to relax with them while they were home.

Color Play Friday is hosted by Trina from In An Otter Life and me. 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 is one of Trina’s photos that she took in Oklahoma before moving up here to Washington. What a beautiful rose!

Tulsa Rose Garden Palette and Bundle

As soon as I started picking colors from this picture, I thought of the Tula Pink Fox Nap print. I really did try to bring in the green from the leaves on the lower part of the picture, but just couldn’t find anything I liked with the Tula.  And I wasn’t willing to let it go! Instead, I focused on the blue found in the very top of the photo and the green/gray in some of the leaves to get some nice contrast in my palette.

Here are the fabrics I chose this week:

Tula Pink, True Colors, Making Waves in Blue

Alison Glass, Ex Libris, Botany Chambray in Navy

Tula Pink, Chipper, Fox Nap in Sorbet

Erin McMorris, Highline, Hudson in Brown

Alison Glass, Sunprints 2016, Grow in Tangerine

Carolyn Friedlander, Doe, Ladder Lines in Flame


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!)

Our photo for next week was taken by yours truly on a family outing to Seattle. What you’re seeing here is the Space Needle reflected off of the EMP building.

  1. I love that you got so many blues in! I also love the ones where you were able to get the blues and that peachy color in the fabric together. Good choices this week! The third and forth ones are my favorite.
