Color Play Friday - Brick Wall

Hello all! Welcome to another edition of Color Play Friday!

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 called Brick Wall.

I'm always amazed by the variety of photos that come up for the CPF challenges. Here is my interpretation of this week's photo.

At first glance, I thought this photo would be all greens and ... I don't even know what to call the color of the bricks. It's not quite Brick, not orange enough to be Terracotta. Mauve maybe? Anyway, it turns out there was quite a bit of blue in the mortar. So I ran with it! Lol! It took me a bit longer to curate this fabric bundle. I had a hard time finding those mauves... or are they Mushroom? Overall, my palette/bundle has a duskiness to it that I rather like.

NOTE: Some of these fabrics had different color values on different websites. Be aware that colors do not always show "true" on the computer screen.


I "shopped" at Stash Fabrics and Hawthorne Threads this week.

  1. Great job! I was really surprised by the color of the bricks too! And finding that blue in the mortar was a nice surprise- added a lot of variety besides just the mauve and green. All you fabrics are great, but I especially love the teal selections.

  2. At first glace there doesn't seem to be that much variety of colors to choose from, but I think you did a great job breaking it down and providing a color palette.

  3. Hi Sarah, trying another comment to see if my 'no-reply' issue is fixed. Again, I love your choices and I'm so glad you've been joining in each week. You always have great selections!

    1. Lorinda, this also came through as a no-reply comment. :(

  4. Such a wonderfully moody palette! Love the Blush Metallic!

  5. That looked to me like a very tricky pallette. You've done a great job though!
