Color Play Friday: Downtown Savannah

Hello 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 may have noticed things were a bit quiet around here last Friday. After being sick and traveling up to the mountains last week, I just never got around to posting! So today I’ll do both this week’s and last week’s pictures. 

 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.

First up: Raspberries

I was super excited about this picture at first, because it seemed to have all the pinks that I love so much. But as I got into it and started pulling colors out, I noticed that they all were a little ‘dusty’. Not the super-vivid colors I was hoping for, but I am still fairly happy with the pink palette I chose. I decided to add the green in there to add interest and a little bit of contrast. If I was making a project from this bundle, that green would totally be my binding!

And here’s the photo for this week!

I love this photo titled Downtown Savannah from Sarah at 123Quilt. I expected to do a brown bundle, but all the light greens, blues, and purples where the light is reflecting on the stairs and bench kept drawing me in. I decided to just go with it and work completely with those… no brown in this palette, and I love it! Downtown Savannah Palette and Bundle

Hawthorne Threads,  Norwegian Wood, Wallflowers in Pebble

Carolyn Friendlander, Architextures, Crosshatch in Lake

Rae Ritchie, Scallop Dot in Powder



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!

Our next photo is titled Skyline:


Thanks for stopping by; I hope you have a fantastic weekend!

Happy Sewing, ~L
