Color Play Friday: French Food

Whew!  It’s been a hot week! It may only be April, but in Washington it feels like July. I’ve been working on my secret sewing, so I’m sorry I’ve not been able to post anything here on the blog about my works in progress. In another week or two I’ll be able to move onto something new and will actually write some posts!

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.

Here is our photo for this week:

 This parfait makes me think of a beautiful summer Saturday morning in a cute cafe with your favorite people.  I really wanted a bright, whimsical bundle to go with the picture.

Here are the fabrics I chose:

Sarah Jane, Sommer, Swans in Grass

Elea Lutz, Strawberry Biscuit, Biscuit Scallop in Red

Cotton and Steel Basics, XOXO in Clementine

Lisa Congdon, The Land That Never Was, Bunting in Multi

Elizabeth Hartman, Rhoda Ruth, Starlight in Mustard

Lizzy House, Butterflies in Butter


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

123 Quilt

Jennifer Lewis

Next weeks photo is one of mine called ’80s Skate Party’.
