Color Play Friday: Library of Congress

I've had to take a little break from Color Play Friday, but now I'm back! Hopefully, everything is in order and I won't have to take any more breaks because I really miss this creative challenge.

I took this picture at the Library of Congress in 2013. The place was amazing! There was literally to much for one person to see, especially on a short trip, so I tried to take as many pictures as possible!

I decided to turn the palette Christmas-y because even though Halloween and Thanksgiving haven't passed yet I'm really starting to get anxious about celebrating and decoration for Christmas!

The Fabrics:
Buck Forest Knit in Silver
Net in Orange
XOXO in Thistle
Nighttime Gander in Navy
Puff in Mustard

The Participants:
Trina from In An Otter Life (That's me)
Lorinda from Laurel, Poppy and Pine
Sarah from 123Quilt
Steph from Shimmy and More

Color Play Friday: Fall Walk

Lorinda took this photo while we were on an impromptu morning walk earlier this month with our friends and the kids.  The leaves started changing mid-September, but the change is in full bloom now.  I love it.

This week I picked out fabric from Spoonflower that reminded me of all the fun things fall brings for us.

The Fabrics:
Autumn Apples
Pumpkin Spice
Slumber Showers
Falling for Fall
Fall Trees

The Participants
Trina at In An Otter Life (That's Me!)
Lorinda at Laurel, Poppy and Pine
Steph at Shimmy and More
