Color Play Friday: Hydrangea Skeletons

Happy Friday, friends!

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 love this photo, but this palette is a hard one for me! Brown is certainly not my go-to color choice, but I did come up with a bundle that feels modern enough and I’m pretty pleased with.

Here are the fabrics I chose:

Rifle Paper Company, Wonderland, Magic Forest in Midnight Metallic

Bonnie Christine, Hello Bear, Adventure in Bark

April Rhodes, Wanderer, Sylphs Freedom in Flower

Heather Bailey, hello LOVE, Twist and Shout in Gold

Carolyn Friedlander, Carkai, Stitches in Bone

Me + You, Indah Batiks, Prints in Olive


I used the Design Wall feature at Stash Fabrics to pick my fabrics this week.


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  123 Quilt to see what Sarah came up with.

I’m so excited for next week’s photo! I reminds me of those wonderful June mornings when I can step out on my back deck and pick my breakfast right off the plant.


I hope you can join us next week!

Happy Sewing, ~L
