Color Play Friday-Finish

Hi there, and thanks for stopping by my little slice of heaven.  This week I accomplished a ton of stuff. I will be sharing some real awesomeness with you soon.  I have been really involved on Periscope. So, I have done some live updates as they are happening. It has been such a wonderful platform. You can be right in your own living room and watching other people's scope  about quilting, planning, and diy. It is almost like youtube, but people can comment back to you if you are doing or watching a  live scope. You should check it out. I have seen Lorinda post a scope about #Colorplayfriday. I thought,  why not? Of course I should decide to try it out on a Thursday, in my sarcastic voice...LOL. I am a little late to the party, but I feel like I should play because both of these ladies helped me so much!

Lorinda blogs here at Laurel poppy and pine, and  Trina is over here at In An Otter Life both made some periscopes to show how to use different platforms to  make the neater version of the image below #Colorplayfriday. Which is really fun. They both have all the rules and how to play on their blog. So, pop on over there and check them out.

   This is my disclaimer. So, no judging. :)
 As a newbie, I did the minimum amount of colors that you can use.

I went to Gimp.com and downloaded the app that Lorinda uses. It is free and seems like a really intricate way to manipulate photos. I just need a good 3 days to figure it out.  Trina uses google drive, but I was so invested in trying to use gimp. I am quite stubborn and nothing can stop me when I am on a mission. And hey, I was wearing my quiltcon shirt, and that means things are going to happen.

You two are just awesome for trying to help me!

Second disclaimer, I had a pretty hard time making the fabrics fit in their little boxes. Also, while I am judging it, It could really use a pop of color.

 I love some Carolyn Friedlander, and these are just perfect.

So, a little late to the party and a bit messy. Life is just crazy sometimes, and you should just have a little fun! You never know what will happen. I am heading out to do my mommy duty errands today. I hope you have a great weekend or week which ever it is for you. See you all next week. Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Sewing


  1. Yvonne you did great! The details like sizing the picture can totally be dealt with later. We don't do it because the picture sizes we do it because its challenge and fun to see the colors and fabrics -mission accomplished!!

    1. Thank you! I had fun putting it together. Can't wait for next week.

  2. It looks great! I'm so glad to see that you and Sarah both used the yellow in the picture. And I have to say I'm really impressed that you were able to do this after using Gimp for only a day- you and your Quiltcon t-shirt Rock!

    1. It was the t-shirt. Plus, you helping me. That was really great. Quilters unite.

  3. The Carolyn Friedlander prints were the perfect colors for your palette! Great job!

    1. Thanks Sarah. I love all of her fabrics. I couldn't stop with just one choice. I will link you up here to and check out your blog. Thanks for stopping by.
