Color Play Friday: Zen in Seattle

It’s Market week!  I’m not there, but Trina is keeping me up-to-date on all the fun!

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.

I must admit, I chose this picture this week for a very specific reason.  The picture coordinates very well with the secret sewing project I was working on last month and will FINALLY be able to show later today!

You may notice that all my fabrics this week are from Art Gallery Fabrics- Gee, I wonder why?! LOL

I planned on using many of the fabrics from my secret project, but seemed to be drawn to other prints and denims for this bundle. I’ve mixed Some of the Art Gallery denims with some of their cotton prints.


Here are the fabrics I chose:

Sharon Holland, Tapestry, Tracery in Ochre

Bari J, Millie Fluer, Miss Thread in Ashen

Bonnie Christine, Forest Floor, Maple Mill in Fog

Pat Bravo, Dare, Thread On in Delight

Pat Bravo, Essentials II, Streakly Business in Azur

Pat Bravo, Heartland, Unn Cross in Pine

Art Gallery Denim Prints, Pointelle Rings

Art Gallery Solid Smooth Denim, Indigo Shadow



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

Next week’s photo is titled Late Summer in My Garden.

  1. Gorgeous colors! My hubby and I want to live in Seattle at some point. He is in tech and it seems like a perfect fit! Plus we love rain! Although, Colorado is a perfect fit right now. 🙂
