Color Play Friday: Paint Palette

It’s Friday, and an exciting Friday in my household. My daughter is in our local High School’s production of Guys and Dolls, and it’s opening night! Our school goes big when it comes to musicals, so I’m really looking forward to watching the show tonight. If you follow me on Instagram, I’m sure you’ll see some pictures later!

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.

I really liked the picture for this week and knew right away that I would do a spectrum bundle.


Here are the fabrics I chose:

Heather Bailey, hello LOVE, Twist and Shout in Red

Sarah Golden, Maker Maker, Cats in Yellow

Eric Carle, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Fingerpainting in Green

Lizzy House, Printmaking, Brisbane in Blue

Cotton + Steel Basics, XOXO in Colbalt

Me + You, Indah Batiks, Stitch in Burgundy


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!

 This week Hazel Honey is joining in… be sure to check out her bundle later today!

Here is our photo for next week:


I hope you can join us then!

Happy Sewing, ~L
