Color Play Friday: Max in the River

How did Friday come so quickly?!

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.

Max in the River

This photo had a lot of my favorite colors- all those aqua tones really make me happy! But in order to stretch myself a bit, I also used some of the yellow and peach that I found in this picture.  I think it balances the bundle well and adds interest.


Here are the fabrics I chose:

Bari J, Sage, Primrose Field in Light

Hawthorne Threads, Mariner, Sailing Stripe in Shell

AGF Capsules, Lower the Volume, Crisscross in Crisp

Hawthorne Threads, Odette, Petit Jardin in Pebble

Pat Bravo, Oval Elements in Sage Meadow

Cotton + Steel Basics, XOXO in Sea Monster

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 123Quilt to see what Sarah came up with!

I’ll be taking next week off to plan my husband’s birthday celebration (it’s a big one: 40!), but Color Play Friday will be back in two weeks!


Happy Sewing, ~L
