Color Play Friday: Purplicious Gets Coffee

I know most of you are on summer break right now… we’re close. Soooooo close to having my kids home for a few months of having adventures and being lazy together. I can’t wait!

If you’re a new follower (hi, new friends!), Color Play Friday is hosted by Trina from In An Otter Life and me. You can head over to my Color Play Friday page to see the rules and my palettes and bundles from previous weeks.

Our photo this week is from Trina and it makes me curious. Who is Purplicious? Did she (or he?) come with Trina to Seattle from Oklahoma, or was she ‘adopted’ here? And I’ve met Ollie, but where has Purplicious gone?! I’m hoping Trina can clear things up for me.

Purplicious Gets Coffee Palette and Bundle

I was really excited to play with this wonderful purple this week. I was tempted to ignore the red in this picture, but I really wanted to give myself a challenge. Purple, red and teal… there’s a challenge for me! I also gave myself the added task of getting all my fabrics from the same shop. This week, I used JAQS Fabrics. If you get a chance, check out their scrap bundles– love them. (Those are not affiliate links- I really just love JAQS!)

Here are the fabrics I chose:

Nel Whatmore, Katherine’s Wheel, Purple Floral

Micheal Miller, Kiss Dot in Purple

Jan Avellana, A Nod to Mod, String Beads in Blue

Sharon Holland, Sketchbook, Woodblock in Flaxen

Robert Kaufman, Metro Living, Scarlett Ogee


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

123 Quilt

Jennifer Lewis

Here is our photo for next week’s Color Play, titled Sprouts. It can be found here.
