Color Play Friday: Bagpipes on Fremont Street

It’s Friday again- how does that happen so quickly?!

As I’m sure most of you are aware, QuiltCon East is currently in full swing. I’m at home, but happy to be participating in QuiltNon hosted by Julie at The Intrepid Thread. Check out her blog post for all the information!

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 a fun photo (taken by Sarah at 123Quilt) to end our month .


There were so many possible color choices in this picture!  I chose to focus on the lit-up buildings in the background. If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I love bright, saturated colors.


Here are the fabrics I chose:

Katarina Roccella, Avant Garde, Steps Above in Prism

Lizzy House, Mini Pearl Bracelets in Lemon Curd

Hawthrone Threads, Skipping Stones in Jade

Alison Glass, Insignia in Navy

Cotton + Steel Basics, XOXO in Plummy

Aneela Hoey, Stay Gold, Jenny’s Plaid in Smoke


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 123 Quilt to see what Sarah came up with this week!

Here is our photo for next week; I hope you can join us!


Happy Sewing, ~L
