I thought I would take a mid-process screenshot so you could see what I was thinking about while assembling this bundle.



This is what I actually came up with.

Color Play Friday: Purplishous Gets Coffee

I'm making this short and sweet because I'm starting to get anxious about school letting out. Monday is the last half day in our town, so that gives me just 1 1/2 days to get everything ready. Logically speaking, there shouldn't be that much left for me to do because the summer is just like every weekend, but emotionally I feel like I'm not ready at all. The boredom box hasn't been restocked, the summer toys haven't been sorted through from last year, and snacks haven't been portioned for easy kid retrieval. I'm probably totally over thinking this, but its what I do! Anyway, before I send myself into a panic attack lets move onto the fabrics for this week.

Technically I'm not sure if I would bundle these fabrics together in one quilt project, but I do like the playfulness of the fabrics which where I was going with this.

Color Play Friday: Brick Wall



Thanks for stopping by to check out this week's #colorplayfriday. If you would like to learn more check out this blog post and visit this #colorplayfriday page for tutorials.

This bundle took more time to put together than I expected. (Good thing I remembered today was Thursday so I wasn't scrambling to get it together Friday morning!!!)

I spent a lot of time trying to make my first palette work. By the time I finally gave up on it, this is what it looked like. (Mind you there were other colors at first, but they just weren't working out either.) I'm really interested now to see if anyone else saw the teal and if they were able to make it work. (Love #colorplayfriday for so many reasons, but that's probably the biggest.)



After that confuddle I took a moment to stretch it out, and come back fresh. Then it only took about 20-30 minutes to get it all together. (Yay!) This week, after the apparently struggle with the first bundle, I decided to opt to find all the fabrics on Hawthornethreads.com using their color tool.



The Fabrics: 

Creative Note: If I was using these fabrics in a project, it would probably be a baby quilt. I would definitely fussy cut the "Little Birds" print. Also, though I love Bari J's artwork, the "Poetic Saddle" print is one of my least favorite in in entirety; however, it is so fantastic when it is cut up. -To me it is a perfect example of how much a fabric change once you start cutting and sewing and cutting and sewing and so forth.

Color Play Friday: Rubber Ducks



Thanks for stopping by to check out this week's #colorplayfriday. If you would like to learn more check out this blog post and visit this #colorplayfriday page for tutorials.

This picture was taken at the Moda booth at one Spring Quilt Market I attended. I actually think it was Salt Lake City in 2011, but I don't remember for sure. In honor of their fun booths I picked all Moda fabrics for this week's bundle -which was a little more difficult than I anticipated because their colors are a little "off" compared to what I would normally work with. Either way I think I picked out some fun ones.


The Fabrics: 
Coral Queen of the Sea -Pink by Stacy Iset Hsu
Modern BG Luster Metallic -Graphite by Zen Chic
Acreage Pedal -Green by Shannon Gillman Orr
Poems from Pebbles -Crush by Malka Dubrawsky
Wing and Leaf -Cloud by Gina Martin
