Color Play Friday: French Coffee

Ever have those weeks where you feel like you got NOTHING done? That is so me this week! When I think about it, I actually did quite a lot, though I’m not FEELING very accomplished. Oh well, there’s always next 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.

I loved the calm this photo invoked. I have no idea where Trina was when she took this, but I imagine a very mellow cafe in a Seattle suburb sometime around late morning. The sort of day where you have nothing planned and can take your time enjoying the atmosphere around you.

I found some beautiful teals in the shadow on the coffee cup that I thought would accent the obvious browns very well, so I decided to go with those two colors.

Here are the fabrics I chose:

Joel Dewberry, Bungalow, Swallow Study in Chocolate

Tim Holtz, Eclectic Elements, Game Pieces in Taupe

Tim Holtz, Wallflower Diamonds in Charcoal

Iza Pearl Design, Blush and Blooms, Texture in Aqua

Annabel Wrigley, Maribel, Grid in Turquoise

Amy Butler, Bright Heart, Oh Deer in Navy



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 our photo for next week. Last Saturday, Trina and I and a few other friends went with some of our kiddos for a completely impromptu walk around her neighborhood. It was one of those perfect, unplanned adventures. This tree had such a  beautiful, peachy color that Trina and I decided it needed to be a CPF 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! 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
