Color Play Friday: Crocus

Hi friends!  I hope you had an excellent week!

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.

Crocus Palette and Bundle

I chose to go with some super-bright, high contrast colors this week. I thought of the La Paloma print right away, because I am currently working on a quilt using it! Then it was just a matter of finding coordinating blenders!


Here are the fabrics I chose:

Alexander Henry, Folklorico, La Paloma

Lizzy House, Pearl Bracelets in Tulip

Karen Lewis, Blueberry Park, Scruffy Daisy in Goldfish

Alison Glass, Sunprints 2016, Grow in Straw

Robert Kaufman House Designer, Spot On, Pin Dot in Violet

Kaffe Fasset Collective, Aboriginal Dot in Plum


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!)

  1. I love how bright your palette is this week! It just makes me smile. 🙂 I saw your comment to me about the Kaufaman dots. What’s funny is I almost went with the violet dots you used. Lol.
