Hello, my 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 knew this photo would be a challenge for me with all those browns and yellows. If I had to pick my least favorite colors, I must admit that they would both be on that list. But the whole point of CPF is to challenge ourselves and step out of our comfort zones. And it was actually easier than I thought to come up with something I really like!
Here are the fabrics I chose:
Thomas Paul, Seedling II, Cairo in Stone
Carolyn Friedlander, Architextures, Crosshatch in Shale
Lizzy House, Mini Pearl Bracelets in Lemon Curd
Thomas Paul, Seedling II, Block Flower in Bronze
Rifle Paper Company, Les Fleurs Lawn, City Toile Lawn in Peach Metallic
Carolyn Friedlander, Doe, Ladder Lines in Ice Peach
Camelot Cottons House Designer, Black and Tan, Herringbone in Marigold
I chose all my fabrics this week using the Color Grid on the Hawthone Threads website. I love that tool!
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!
The following people are joining me this week:
Here is our photo for next week… yummy cupcakes for my daughter’s birthday last summer.
I hope you can join us next week!
Happy Sewing, ~L
It’s so fun to see what fabrics you picked! I love that first Thomas Paul fabric and I wish I had used it too! This was definitely a challenging photo and I’m glad you chose it. 🙂
