Color Play Friday: Rubber Ducks

With the Monday holiday, Friday snuck up on me. As in, I totally forgot to do this post before this morning, then I was out all morning for appointments and errands, and then I had a mini freak out when I realized that our domain was down... and looked like it had expired. Um what!? I did the troubleshooting to verify that that is what had happened and figure out who and where to pay. Phew! So sorry to anyone who tried to visit while the site was down. :-/

I have a special place in my heart for rubber ducks. They are just so cute. My sister had quite a collection for a while and three of my earliest quilts were Rubber Ducks, including one for her. I feel like I cheated a little on my yellow fabric pick. It's a little more vibrant than the yellows in the photo, but I just couldn't resist the pretty flowers that had yellow and orange! Look at me using fabrics with more than one color! Woo hoo!!

I created my palette with Palette Builder 2.1 by Play Crafts.

Kona Curry
Kona Cedar
Kona Ash
Kona Smoke
Kona Coal
Kona Black

Daisy Bouquet in Sunflower by Denyse Schmidt, FreeSpirit Fabric
Plentiful Earth in Saffron by Leah Duncan, Art Gallery Fabrics
Kite Tails in Silver by Karen Lewis, Robert Kaufman
Crosshatch in Shale by Carolyn Friedlander, Robert Kaufman
XOXO in Number 2 Pencil by Cotton + Steel

    I'm very impressed witht he numbers of colours that pop up from such a simple photo. They would make a beautiful quilt.

      Thank you, Lisa! I really enjoy the challenge of finding colors that aren't so obvious.

  2. I love how you manage to pull in some darker colors. your bundle really works well with this week's picture. That sunflower is adorable, good job.

      Thanks, Stephanie. I think a greyscale quilt with a pop of color or two would be fun to make.
