Color Play Friday: Sky

Happy Friday, everyone!

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.

This is a photo of my friend Trina’s dog Sky. All the bright colors created by the amazing lighting really drew my attention.

I originally selected a lot of colors from this picture, but the greenery and the coral of Sky’s tongue was what really stood out to me.  I would love to make a little girl’s quilt out of this bundle!


Here are the fabrics I chose:

Michael Miller Ta Dot in Moss

Lotta Jansdotter, Lucky, Etapp in Queen Olive

Lotta Jandotter, Hemma, Pojk in Citron

Designs by Dani, Vintage Daydream, Banner in Pink

Sarah Watson, Luxe in Bloom, Crystalline in Reef

Designs by Dani, Vintage Daydream, Aztec in Red

Sandi Henderson, Farmer’s Market, Apple Dot in Pink


I picked all of my fabrics this week using the Design Wall on Stash Fabrics website. All the links on this post are non-affiliate links. 🙂


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!

Next week’s photo is one of mine and is (very non-creatively) titled Colorful Rocks.


I hope you can join us next week!

Happy Sewing, ~L
