Another lovely floral photo, Lorinda picked Trina's Tulip Festival photo from Mount Vernon, Washington for this week's photo. I think you'll see my preference for green and purple in my choice of palette again, somewhat similar to what I chose last week. Only one of my solids is actually the same as last week, the Avocado Green. I really had to resist using the same fabric I chose last time. (Bonus: This photo/palette also fits in with my #purplesewingchallenge for the month.)
I created my palette with Palette Builder 2.1 by Play Crafts.
I feel like my fabrics are a little nutty. I chose that adorable tadpole fabric first. Thinking they look like little fish, I thought I might try to lean ocean (hence the anchors). In the end I really struggled with the light green, looking for the right color and wanting a larger scale print. Next time, my goal is going to be to start with a multi-colored print containing colors from my palette. I just really love my blenders!
