Color Play Friday: Sprouts

Summer Break is here! And in true Washington form, it is currently overcast and drizzly. Hoping it clears up over the weekend!

Color Play Friday is hosted by Trina from In An Otter Life and myself. 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. You can also search #colorplayfriday on Instagram to see lots of past palettes and bundles.

Speaking of new to Color Play Friday, Mel from Cloth and Paper Studios is joining us for the first time this week. Make sure to stop by and leave her lots of comment love!

Here is this week’s picture!

Right away, I knew I wanted to play with that really cool dark slate color being reflected off of the black plastic. Add in the neon green of the sprouts, and I had a palette that I loved. I went very geometric this week, and of course added in some raindrop prints to represent spring in the Northwest!

Here are the fabrics I chose:

Rashida Coleman-Hale, Raindrop, Geo Dot in Teal

Elizabeth Hartman, Pacific, Raindrops in Navy

Denyse Schmidt, Franklin, Zig Zag in Glen

Latifah Saafir, Grafic, Brick Walls in Sulfur

Rashida Coleman-Hale, Zephyr, Whirlwind in Linen

Micheal Miller, Ta Dot in Starfruit

All my fabrics this week are from Stash Fabrics.


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.
