Color Play Friday: Wildflower Garden

Welcome to the first Color Play Friday of the New Year!

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.

You’ll notice throughout January that all the pictures this month are related to gardens and summer. Obviously, the cold weather is getting the best of me… I’ve been dreaming of beach days!

This photo was taken in my front yard and screams of warm weather to me… those bright colors make me happy!

I chose this picture for it’s bright colors, so I really wanted to get some bright fabrics in this bundle, particularly the yellow and blue. And as soon as I saw that rabbit meteor fabric, I knew it had to be a part of this bundle.  My garden was mysteriously invaded by rabbits this year, so a fabric with rabbits falling from the sky seemed appropriate!

.

Here are the fabrics I chose:

Timeless Treasures, Hatch in Citrus

Joel Dewberry Aviary 2, Woodgrain in Dill

Timeless Treasures, Sketch in Pine

Alexia Marcelle-Abegg, Print Shop, This + That in Linen

Cotton and Steel Basics, Sprinkle in Peacock

Felice Regina, Luna Sol, Meteor Shower in Dusk

 

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!
