Color Play Friday - Rubber Ducks

I really do love Color Play Friday. It's a great way to exercise some color theory and it gives me the chance to vicariously shop for fabric, lol!

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 was taken by Trina and is called Rubber Ducks.

Rubber Duckie, you're the one...

Here is what I came up with this week.

I'm really pleased with my palette/bundle this week. Oranges and yellows are difficult for me to work with but I think CPF is helping me work out those creative muscles, so to speak. My fabrics are somewhat themed this week. The first is called "Feeding Frenzy" and the second is called "Fishing Net." A bit macabre, a bit tongue in cheek. 

Also, did you notice I used Painters Canvas in my bundle again? I can't seem to get away from it! Do you have a particular go-to fabric that just seems to work with everything? Grunge? Crosshatch? Anything?


I "shopped" at Hawthorne Threads this week.


Be sure to check out the other participants this week.

Until next time!

  1. We don't have any matching fabrics, but I feel like our bundles are very similar this week! We chose all the same colors!

  2. Sara I really enjoyed your bundle this week. I could actually feel to movement of the duckies from you bundle, fun prints, great job.

  3. You and Lorinda did such a great job of pulling the yellow and oranges during this week!
