Color Play Friday: Wild Horses Leader

Happy Friday, friends! Hope you’ve been doing well. Here in my little town, we are in our second week of Homecoming! Because of the impending Great-Northwest-Storm-That-Never-Was, my teens’ homecoming dance was postponed to this week, which means a second ‘Spirit Week’ for them. It’s really nice to see teenagers turning lemons into lemonade! So if you follow me on Instagram, you’ll probably be seeing pictures of my kids looking fancy over the weekend.

Although we (praise God) didn’t get any of the destruction that was predicted, the weather here has remained gloomy and cold. Which is why I’m glad to have this picture for Color Play Friday this week. It reminds me of summer vacations! I have been visiting this monument since I was about 16 years old.

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.

Because of the gloomy weather around here, I really wanted the focus this week to be on lighter fabrics. In order for there to be SOME contrast, I added in the darker, indigo fabric. I really love this bundle and would enjoy making a project out of it some day!

Here are the fabrics I chose:

Lella Boutique, Into The Woods, Granny in Bark

Cotton and Steel Basics, XOXO in Natural

Lizzy House, The Whisper Palette,  Heraldry in Cloud

Carolyn Friedlander, Architextures, Crosshatch in Fog

Hawthorne Threads, Calypso, Calypso Garden in Water

Hawthorne Threads, Isometry, Elemental in Indigo



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!)

Happy Sewing, ~L
