Color Play Friday - Purplishous Gets Coffee

Welcome to another Color Play Friday!!!

It's been a weird week around here; one of those weeks that's busy but strangely not busy at all. I have no idea how that works. Anyway, Color Play Friday was a welcome distraction for me this week. :)

For those of you who are new, 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 one of Trina's and it's called Purplishous Gets Coffee.

That's one happy unicorn! Makes sense. I mean, I'd be happy if I had some coffee right now. Truthfully, I just finished my morning dose of caramel hot chocolate. So, so good!

Anyway, here is what I came up with this week.

I'm sure Trina has some interesting back story on Purplishous. I'd love to hear it. Anyway, I chose to completely disregard the red and focus entirely on Purplishous for my palette/bundle this week. I started with the purple as my focus color and I'm very pleased I found a focus fabric to match! From there is was an easy leap to work in the pretty blues from the unicorn horn. Then I pulled the light grey from Purplishous's hair and the darker grey from around that happy smile.


I "shopped" at Hawthorne Threads this week.

  1. I considered the butterfly fabric. (Lizzy House had lots of great stuff in these colors!) I also considered a grey text fabric. I love your palette! I'm putting that Garland fabric in my shopping cart!

  2. I love it! The Lizzy House is a nice, soft contrast to the Text and Schematic prints.

    1. Thanks, Lorinda! I really like the contrast too.

  3. What a great combination! I'm enjoying your fabric 'pulls' for each challenge!

  4. Wow, great pull. I love that butterfly fabric thrown in there. Not an easy palette tossed with, but you made it doable.

  5. Color Play Friday looks like a lot of fun! Great way to fall in love with some lovely fabrics. Hmmmmm. Dangerous too. But I think playing with fabrics this wey would be easy on my pocketbook.

  6. Love your virtual fabric pull for this week. It was a good call to ignore the red

  7. The butterfly fabric is absolutely perfect for this photo!! Ding Ding Ding Winner!!!
