Color Play Friday: Forget-Me-nots

How is everyone this lovely Friday? I’m hoping to have some fun adventures this weekend, how about you? But first- it’s Friday, so let’s do a little Color Play!

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.

These gorgeous Forget-me-nots started growing in my garden a few years back and I just love them. The color on them is so vivid!

Forget me nots Palette and Bundle


Here are the fabrics I chose for this garden- inspired bundle:

Alison Glass, Sunprint, Grow in Straw

Amy Butler, Love, Sunspots Olive

Sarah Jane, Sommer, Garden

Eric Carle, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Fingerpainting in Blue

Michael Miller, Ta Dot, in Violet

Eric Carle, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Fingerpainting in Purple


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

Jennifer Lewis

Cloth and Paper Studio

For next week, we have another picture of Purplicious. I wanted another shot at a purple bundle WITHOUT the bother of the red background we had in the previous Purplicious picture.  


Are you enjoying Color Play Friday? We’d love for you to get in on the fun and create your own Color Play post!

  1. I had to double take… were we looking at the same photo!? I love that you incorporated yellow and purple for a spectrum of color. I love your palette way more than mine this week! Bravo!!
