Color Play Friday: Colorful Rocks

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 this week’s photo!


I was actually really surprised this week. After selecting colors out of this picture to work with, I was honestly expecting to have a really tough time. This is certainly not my go-to color palette!  I thought I would hate my bundle. But instead, I managed to come up with something I really love, and fairly quickly too!

Finding the two Petit Collage prints was very helpful- they had all my colors already in them! Then I found the Good Hair Day print (which I love) that had many of my focal colors as well.

Here are all the fabrics I chose:

Katarina Roccella, Imprint, Buttonballs in Gold

Petit Collage, Party Animals Organic, Sticks in White

Petit Collage, Party Animals Organic, Party Stripe in Pink

Hawthorne Threads, Coyote, Beaded in Sunrise

Kim Andersson, Good Hair Day, Up Do in Whisper

Joel Dewberry, Notting Hill, Hexagons in Canary


I used the Hawthorne Threads website to find all my fabrics this week. I love their search by color function! These are all 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!

Don’t forget to head over to the other blogs and see what they came up with!
