Color Play Friday: Purplishous Birthday Fry

Happy Friday! I hope you all had a fabulous week. If you’re a new follower from the 2016 New Quilt Blogger Blog Hop, welcome to Color Play Friday!

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.

A few weeks ago, we did another picture with Purplishous. In that photo, there was a lot of red in the background that I felt like I should include in my bundle to challenge myself.  I wanted another shot at making a Purplishous-inspired bundle (without the red), so I picked this photo of Trina’s for today.

I really wanted to focus just on the pretty teals and purples this time around. I have to say, I picked that Lizzy House unicorn print without even registering that it looks an awful lot like our little friend Purplishous!  I wonder if anyone else will chose that fabric this week.

Here are my fabric selections:

Bonnie and Camille, Vintage Picnic, Dot in Aqua

Tula Pink, Eden, Mosaic in Glacier

Lizzy House, The Lovely Hunt, Fairy Rings in Lavender

Lizzy House, The Lovely Hunt, Unicorn Tapestry in Purple

Lecien, L’s Modern Basics, Stripes in Purple

Laura Gunn, Painter’s Canvas in Purple

** I used the Design Wall feature on Stash Fabric’s website to choose this bundle. My links this week will take you directly to Stash’s website. They are not affiliate links; I just love the company!**

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

Next week’s photo is one of mine, taken out of my car window on our drive home from Yellowstone a couple of years ago.
