Color Play Friday - Dandelion

Hello and welcome back to Color Play Friday!

For those of you who are new, Color Play Friday (CPF) is a weekly challenge hosted by Trina from In an Otter Life and Lorinda from Laurel, Poppy and Pine. Each week they provide one of their photographs as inspiration and then the participants create a color palette and a coordinating fabric bundle based on the photo. It's a lot of fun and great way to play with virtual fabric!

This week's photo is called Dandelion.

Here is what I came up with this week.

For a while I've been wanting to create a bundle that had one focus fabric surrounded by polka dot fabrics. I started out with a gorgeous modern floral that had lots of bright greens and oranges and pinks. Then I faced the challenge of finding all those dots! When I finally curated the dot fabrics I wanted, the focus fabric just didn't work anymore. I was lucky though; I found that gorgeous Heather Bailey print. I think it just makes the bundle.


I "shopped" at Hawthorne Fabrics again. What can I say? I'm pretty predictable.

  1. Oo, I have a FQ of the Heather Bailey print! I love the fabrics you've chosen to go with it. Beautiful!

  2. Really pretty palette. Love this. Wasn't able to participate this week, but hopefully next week things will slow down...

  3. All the polka dots are super fun and that Heather Bailey gives me fabric lust!!! :)

    1. Oh yes, I'm feeling the fabric lust on that one too!
