Color Play Friday: Boys on the Beach

It’s been an exciting week! Monday, I finally got to announce my involvement in a new pattern company called Quilt Theory. I also participated in the Blogger’s Quilt festival this 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.

Here is our picture for this week.

I loved all the grays, so I focused on those, but I also wanted to play with that pop of color in the middle of the photo. I’m really happy with this very masculine bundle.


Here are the fabrics I chose:

Parson Gray Favorites, Felucca in Moonshade

Cotton and Steel  Basics, Dottie in Fedora

Hawthorne,  Bengal, Tiger Mosaic in Onyx

April Rhodes, Observer, Triangle Tokens in Ink

Rashida Coleman-Hale, Macrame, Bead Curtain in  Deep Sea

Alison Glass, Handcrafted Patchwork, Tile in Brick


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!)

Here is next week’s photo- isn’t it peaceful?


Are you enjoying Color Play Friday? We’d love for you to get in on the fun and create your own Color Play post! You can create a bundle of fabric, select yarns or embroidery threads, or create a project inspired by our photo. Be sure to let Trina or I know so we can link up to you. You can get in contact with us at

I hope you can join us next week!

Happy Sewing, ~L
