Color Play Friday - Fall Walk

Yay for Fridays and yay for Color Play Friday!

For those of you who may be 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. Each week they provide one of their photographs as inspiration and then the participants create a color palette and a fabric bundle based on the photo.

Fall is definitely the word around here!

Here is the weekly photo.

Lorinda and Trina were taking a walk together last weekend when they spotted this gorgeous display of Fall leafage. They knew it just had to be a CPF photo challenge!

Here is what I came up with.

Somebody get me hammer... cause I think I nailed it! Seriously, I am so in love with this bundle. It just makes me swoon every time I see it. Can't you just see a fall quilt made with these fabrics? The gears in my head are turning and I'm going to get myself in trouble by adding extra projects to my "to-do" list.

I will say that the purple thoroughly surprised me. Somehow I never think of it as a Fall color but, lo and behold, it is! It took a while to find just the right purple fabric but the search was worth it. The yellow was just the opposite. I found way too many excellent fabrics in that ochre-y yellow that it was hard to narrow it down to just one fabric! The rest of the fabrics were fairly easy to pick out.


I shopped at Hawthorne Threads again this week. (non-affiliate links)
