Playing with fabric

I got up with a headache yesterday morning and didn't accomplish much.  It was cloudy in the morning looked like it would rain but the sun came out for most of the day.  I played with some groups of fabric, fabric therapy. This group is a true purple although it looks blue on my computer screen and the light one is apricot not pink.
I took the pictures at night so the colors aren't true.  I had to add green to this one to make the light fabric show up but that made the Kaffe large print and the orange too dull.  Just imagine this group much brighter.

The apricot/gold light fabrics are much richer than they look here and the dark blue is really purple.  I had fun playing with the fabrics even if I can't show you a true representation.

It is always fun to see the fabric combinations that one can come up with. Sometimes the choices are limitless. What you have chosen is beautiful!

Joan said...

The combinations are really delightful. I would have to agree with Jackie - they are beautiful.

Without the added fabrics you chose, the peonies would look very pathetic; this way, it is whimsical, a twinkle. I love it. And also the other combos.

Love your combos! Glad you had fun playing with your fabrics. The weather should change today. Hope your headache is gone.

I really like the way you use big prints. I shy away from them but when I see what you do it makes me want to give them a try. I love the middle combination.

That lichen (or one of its brothers in color) is going to be the binginon my fall quilt - if I ever get it pieced...

binginon = binding on (If I could do it over, I would have taken typing in high school)

Hope you are feeling better. These weather fronts can be painful. I love the fabric combo's. My grandson (14) keeps telling me that blue and orange go well together - but I am still not sure.

Headaches are the worst. I hope yours subsided quickly! Love those vibrant colors.

Your fabrics are just striking, even if the true color did not photograph well. They sure look great on this end.

Your stash of fabrics... must be in the g'zillions ☺. Just can not get over the array you show us.
