Color Play Friday – NYC

It’s Friday! It’s Friday!  Another day to play with fabric and colors.  I had some fun this time with the bright colors within this photo.  As with all the #colorplayfriday pictures there are always options of palettes to work with.

This week I decided to go more bold than I have the in the past couple weeks.  I tried to stay a little more primary in the color choices.  I’m not sure if I had more fun picking the bright colors or the fun fabrics to go with it.

I am in love with the fishy fabric I found on Hawthorne Threads.  It’s just so darn adorable.  I don’t know how I don’t go broke looking at all the fabric every week that I always think I “have to have”.  Fortunately some self restraint kicks in somewhere. Yes, I have my own quilt shop stocked full of fabrics of love but I still find fabric I don’t have that I love.

The yellow gold with red flowers are probably my second favorite and I’m not a flowery type of girl.  Lately I have been becoming more drawn to what I would call a modern retro fabric like the yellow piece.  Fabrics by Denyse Schmidt and Another Point of View have a certain charm with their bold colors and vintage print.

On top of all this talk about bright color and fabric fun I can’t not talk about the fact that this is a picture of New York City.  This is one of my top 10 places that I want to visit. Some day I’ll get to see the big city and all it’s crazy chaos.  I think I’d fit right in!

Enough talk and let’s get to the fun part.  Here is my selection of color and fabric for this weeks Color Play Friday.

  1. I love that your fabrics are nature inspired in one of the most “unnatural” places in the world. I collect rocks when I visit places -you know free souvenir so i can spend my money on food and fabric – and in NYC I couldn’t find a rock -at least not one I wanted to pick up!

  2. I like how calm you palette is, considering I never think about NYC as calm. It reminded me that just because the world around you is chaotic does not mean you have to be. I love the yellow and how the red kind of leaps off it. The fish is pretty cool too!

  3. This week was a challenge for me to go bolder as well. My speed is usually more along the lines of the Hydrangea week, but this was fun. I think you really succeeded with your bold combination and fabric choices. Skipping stones is really beautiful.
