Color Play Friday: Airlie Gardens

Hi friends! I hope you all are well. There has been a whirlwind of sickness at my place… no fun at all. We’re hoping  to all feel better really soon!

Well let’s get to the fun, shall we?

If you’re new to Color Play Friday, welcome! This is my fun way of taking a little time each week to expand my color knowledge and fabric-selection skills. Often, a picture will take me completely out of my comfort zone and force me to combine fabrics in a new way.

 You can 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 palettes and bundles from the past! If you’d like to know more about participating in Color Play Friday, please feel free send me an email and I’ll let you in on all the details of how to join.

Here is our first photo from a Color Play participant, Airlie Gardens from Sarah at 123Quilt. Sarah is a beautiful photographer, and I love the perspective in this photo.


Although there are so many gorgeous greens in this picture, the greys are what stood out to me most. Of course, I had to add that fun pop of lime green too!

Here are the fabrics I chose:

Dear Stella, City Life, Triangle Dot in Fossil

Dear Stella, Net in Grey

Isa Pearl Design, Blush and Blooms, Diamond Texture in Grey

Timeless Treasures, Hatch Basic in Ice

Cotton and Steel Basics, Netorious in Campout

Alexia Marcelle-Abegg, Print Shop, Moons in Grass


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 123Quilt and see what Sarah came up with!

Next week’s photo is one of mine aptly titled Crab Shell:

I hope you can join us next week!

Happy Sewing, ~L
