Color Play Friday (CPF) is a fun weekly challenge hosted by Trina from In an Otter Life and Lorinda from Laurel, Poppy and Pine where they provide one of their photographs as inspiration and then all the participants create a color palette and fabric bundle based on the photo.
This week's photo is called "Late Summer in My Garden."
I have to laugh because I told Lorinda that I really struggle with the color orange and she joked that we may be seeing more orange-y photos in the coming CPF challenges. I guess she was serious!
Here is what I came up with this week.
So yeah, I struggled with this one. A lot! Hey Orange, it's not personal, we just don't work well together. It's not you, it's me. Because this was a challenging photo for me to work from, I stuck to what I know and like. Is anyone surprised that my bundle is full of blenders and even includes some Painters Canvas? I'm not! I am, however, extremely pleased that I managed to get that Chicopee print in there. Chicopee is one of favorite fabric collections and I'm hoarding it like no one's business.
Do you have a collection that you just love? A collection that you can't bear to cut into?
I "shopped" at Hawthorne Threads this week.
