Color Play Friday: Backyard Sunset

Hi everyone!  I can’t believe its Friday already… this one sure snuck up on me!

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 have a spot in my yard where I like to lay down and relax when my yardwork is done. The grass is soft, and in the afternoon, this butterfly bush gives nice shade.  I took this photo one evening after mowing the lawn. I love it when the sunset lights up the clouds like cotton candy!


This is a good example of colors I never would have put together on my own, yet I ended up loving the bundle. I love how these Color Play Friday pictures stretch my color knowledge.

Here are the fabrics I chose:

Hawthorne Threads, Autumn Fawn, Forest Glade in Harvest

Hawthorne Threads, Cottontail Silhouette in Shell

Bonnie Christine, Sweet as Honey, Garden Gate in Berry

Leah Duncan, Tule, Windmarks in Arid

Hawthorne Threads, Skipping Stones in Glacier Blue

Carolyn Friedlander, Doe, Ladder Lines in Slate


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


Next week’s photo is going to be a tough one for me, I think!


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
