Color Play Friday: Fall Walk

Today is an exciting day for me because Quilt Theory is officially launched! Not only can you (FINALLY) see my pattern, but you can also buy it!  Head over to to check out the whole collection.

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 little tidbit about this photo- two Saturdays ago, Trina and I got together for a very impromptu Saturday morning walk with some of our other friends. There were babies and little kids and five mamas chatting about life, hobbies, health, work, etc. It was wonderful. We saw this gorgeous tree and Trina and I decided it needed to be a CPF picture. So while technically its my picture since I took it with my phone, it’s really both of ours.


This week, I decided to give myself the added challenge of picking all my fabrics from one fabric manufacturer. Because Robert Kaufman so generously donated fabric for me to make my Highland Tile quilt, I of course went straight to their website!


Here are the fabrics I chose:

Elizabeth Hartman, Pacific, Raindrops in Brick

Heather Jones, Color Dash, Dash in Nectarine

Carolyn Friendlander, Carkai, Grid Diamond in Creamsicle

Valori Wells, Jules and Indigo, Spots in Persimmon

Karen Lewis, Blueberry Park,  Libs Stitches in Yarrow

Robert Kaufman House Designer, Quilter’s Linen in Forest


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

Shimmy and More

123 Quilt

Next week’s photo is of one of my favorite places to visit- Mukilteo Beach 


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

  1. I’m loving your bundle this week, especially those raindrops and the grid print! I love that you decided to do all Kaufman fabrics this week. Sometimes those extra little challenges we give ourselves make it more fun!
