Color Play Friday: Lycoming Engine

July is here, and I’m finally starting to feel like I’m settling in to summer break!

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.

I chose this photo of Trina’s knowing that I would want to do a Fourth of July-themed bundle. As I started picking colors, I realized that I wasn’t going to get a classic red, white and blue from this picture. But those dusky blues and beautiful reds screamed at me… “Riley Blake!” So off I went to the Riley Blake website to find this fun bundle.

Here are the fabrics I chose:

Zoe Pearn, Lucky Star, Argyle in Navy

Lori Whitlock, Playball 2, Plaid in Blue

Deena Rutter, Offshore, Dot in Red

Riley Blake, 2015 Basics, Red Star

Samantha Walker, Fly Aweigh, Lures in Yellow

Simple Simon and Company, Four Corners, Weave in Gold


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:

Our photo next week comes courtesy of my garden! I love these vivid Forget-me-nots.
