Welcome to another Color Play Friday. I missed out on last Friday due to some pressing sewing deadlines. Here the image for this week along with the colors I pulled from it.
When I first seen this image I knew I wanted to focus on the darks with one light color as the image is full of dark with just a bit of bright. I was hoping for a pale yellow or orange but I just wasn’t able to pull one from this image surprisingly. There’s too much grey mixed with the rainbow to get a bright color that we think we’re seeing. So I made do with the light green.
With my color thoughts came a modern pattern that I’ve recently come across and think it would look amazing with these colors. It’s the new Play quilt pattern by Zen Chic.
I can easily see the background of the Play quilt done in the light green color with the various dark colors used for the triangles. Considering this quilt and the quilting done on it is very geometric, I wanted fabrics that contrasted with that. For the background I chose the bubbles and for the remaining fabrics I deliberately picked ones that had more organic shapes and swirls to directly contrast with the pattern and quilting.
The fabrics I chose from left to right are:
Hometown Girl Batiks Midnight Swirl
Dewdrop Batiks Grape Floral Damask
Batiks Blue Barn Indigo Vintage Lace
Waterfall Batiks Loden Queen Ann
Modern Batik Collection Leaf Raindrops

Also, to give it a bit more pop of color, I envision this quilted using Aurifil 2545.
If I ever get my hands on those fabrics and have them all in my stash at the same time I will make the quilt that I envisioned in my head. What about you? Would you use my palette or fabric choices together?
