Color Play Friday: Idaho Storm



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.

Be sure to check out Lorinda's bundle, and see what the other participants came of with as well. (Links listed below.)

Today's bundle doesn't really go together in one project. Instead I went with natural brain flow which looked something like this....
Idaho Storm > minus the storm because its dark and deary here today and I don't want to focus on that > Idaho.... > hmm everyone knows potatoes come from Idaho I should see there is a cool potato fabric on Spoonflower!

So I browsed potato fabric and kitchen fabric for a while because its so cute. Then I remembered one of my favorite parts of Idaho was the Craters of the Moon place we camped out when I was 14. Also I remembered all the signs warning about respiratory infection or something like that from rodent poo... so then I had to start searching rodent fabric!!!

This is my brain sometimes -sometimes its scary, but I found some super cute indy fabric! Check it out!

This week I was able to use fabrics from Cotton and Steel's new line! We picked it out at Spring Quilt Market and couldn't resist getting all of it for Quilting Mayhem!

Color Play Friday: Lycoming Engine

I took this photo while at the Oshkosh air show in 2012. I thought it was so much fun to see so many colors in a "boring ol' engine". I wasn't wrong!

Today all the fabric comes from Spoonflower. At first I was looking for aviation themed, but it quickly morphed into hot air balloons because there were so many fun ones! Keep in mind that clicking the links takes you to the full picture where you can see and purchase these fabrics made by Indie designers which is perfect because July is Support Indie month (Independent designers and shop owners).
