Being sick sucks, doesn’t it?! Earlier this week, I was sick and -I’ll admit it- a bit whiny about it. But, things are looking up! It’s Friday, and I’m well again and feeling a little feisty. Which is probably why my palette is so firey this week!
If you’re new around here, Color Play Friday is hosted by Trina from In An Otter Life and myself. Head over to my Color Play Friday page to see the rules and my palettes and bundles from previous weeks.
A couple of years back, I tore out most of the grass in my front yard and replaced it with a cottage garden. It was a bit of a risky move, but I love coming home in spring and summer to flowers everywhere. I took this snapshot one day last summer.
I decided to ignore all the peripheral colors this week and just focus on the yellow/orange flowers. After a couple of weeks with browns and dark colors, I needed to get back to my one true fabric love: bright, saturated, fun prints.
I found all my fabrics on Hawthorne Threads’ website this week, so all of the following links will take you there so you can buy up all this loveliness!
Here are the fabrics I chose:
Carolyn Friedlander, Doe, Ladder Lines in Flame
Dear Stella House Designer, Polka Dot in Orange
Alison Glass, Sunprint, Grow in Tangerine
Katy Jones, Priory Square, Thru the Wire in Marmalade
Karen Lewis, Blueberry Park, Scruffy Daisy in Canary
Joel Dewberry, True Colors, Herringbone in Yellow
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 this week! 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
Sarah Goer Quilts
I’m excited to play with yellow and orange in a different way next week using Trina’s Rubber Ducks photo. Aren’t they adorable?!

Glad to hear you are feeling better! I really love this color play idea! I think we are on the same page as to what types of colors we like. I like your bright and happy choices.
Janice- You are welcome to join in anytime you’d like! We really do have a lot of fun with it. Glad you like the bundle!
I hate being sick. I’m glad you’re feeling better. This palette is so vibrant! I like that you went with just the flower color and ignored the rest of the photo.
I need this bundle in my stash.
Me too! So many great blenders!
