Color Play Friday: Skyline

Hi friends! Happy Friday; I hope you have a fun weekend planned!

  I haven’t been getting much sewing in lately… I’ve been super busy getting my house prettied up to sell. I miss being at my machine. I think a small project might be in order just regain some sanity! Earlier this week, my heart just NEEDED to play with fabric, so I learned how to make a simple rope from fabric scraps. It’s really fun and fast, but I’m still trying to figure out how I want to use it… I’ll post more about it next week!


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 took this photo out of my hotel room window a few years back when I was on a business trip with my husband.  I loved the way the city looked in the twilight.  Skyline Palette and Bundle

Here are the fabrics I chose for this week’s bundle:

Heather Givans, Literary, Read Aloud in Gusto

Timeless Treasures, Sketch in Sapphire

Tula Pink, Tabby Road, Tent Stripe in Blue Bird

Amy Sinibaldi, Playground, Sandbox in Frozen

Art Gallery Fabrics, Squared Elements in Almondette

Bari J, Anna Elise, Geo Mist in Gold

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!

Be sure to head over to 123Quilt to see what Sarah came up with this week!

 This next photo is a fun one of my son being silly on the beach. I’m excited for all the bright colors!



I hope you can join us next week!

Happy Sewing, ~L
