Color Play Friday: Brick Wall

How in the world is it Friday again already?!

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.

So, here is my Color Play for the week!

Brick Wall Palette and Bundle

I was really surprised when I started pulling colors out of those bricks with just how light of pinks I was getting.  I kept trying to find darker red, but no luck. I was a little concerned that I wouldn’t be able to put a good bundle together with the bright greens and muted pinks I was gathering. I started playing around on Stash fabrics design wall, though, and found a fabric combination that I really like. The Heather Ross Floral Medallion really pulls it together!


Here are the fabrics I chose:

Bonnie Christine, Sweet As Honey, Garden Gate in Berry

Victoria Johnson, Whisper, Dashes in Pink

Heather Ross, Tiger Lily, Medallion in Cream

Karen Lewis, Blueberry Park, Kite Tails in Lime

Lecien, L’s Modern Basics, Text in Blue

Maureen Cracknell, Nightfall, Labyrinthine in Dusk


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:

 Next week’s photo is of this cutie named Purplicious. I can’t wait to hear more of her (or his?) story from Trina!

  1. I love that you were able to make that bright green work! Those bricks were tough to work with. I kept trying to get a darker color out of them too. I think you did a great job. That Heather Ross Medallion print really does make it all work. I’ve been trying to work that print into one of my bundles for weeks and I’m glad to see it in yours!
