Happy Friday! I am currently having fun kicking around Coeur D’Alene, Idaho. I love this city almost as much as I love home. There is so much beauty here, not just in nature, but in the gorgeous architecture. And bonus: I found a great quilt shop!
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 thought this photo would be a fun choice for Color Play Friday. It leaves me wondering where Trina may have been when she came across these little guys.
I originally planned to have a bright, fun bundle- something you would make a kid’s quilt out of. But as I actually started pulling colors from the photo, I realized that they weren’t as bright as I originally thought. That took me in a new direction with a more muted, natural looking bundle.
Here are the fabrics I chose:
Lizzy House, Mini Pearl Bracelets in Yellow
Pat Bravo, Essentials 2, Intertwill in Gold
Anna Maria Horner, True Colors, Going Up in Pumpkin
Timeless Treasures, Sketch Basic in Tangerine
Shauna Scicluna, Forest Fables, Panel in Spring
Hawthorne Threads, Etched Hills in Charcoal
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
Sarah Goer Quilts

I never would have thought an image of rubber ducks could produce such a lovely palette! So much fun!
Oh my gosh Lorinda you have so many cute fabrics. I’m drooling over the intertwill and forest fables. this is an awesome bundle this week. I love how all these colors play nice together. I love this bundle! Great job.
I thought there would be more bright colors too. This photo was quite interesting to work with. It really surprised me. I love your bundle this week. 🙂

You still managed to make it bright and playful. 🙂 I love all the yellow and orange you were able to make play nicely.
I thought of you when I picked those foxes!
