I was looking at the outside of the red haven peaches and thinking how many beautiful colors make up a peach skin. The inside is a pretty color too. But the outside is a fabulous blend of wonderful color. And that brings me to fabric. After all it is Friday. Recently I acquired the above fruit fabric (don't you love fruit fabric) in an oil cloth. I was going to make a bag with it but I might save this to cover my little cutting table next time as there is just barely enough. Isn't the little peach cute in the fabric. Well all the fruit is cute. But seeing this fabric I thought about how many of my fabrics have a peachy theme or color?So I pulled a few fabrics from my shelves to compare to the peach. Above both fabrics have a sort of traditional peach color inside each fabric. I have used little bits of both these fabrics in a couple projects.I would say these fabrics have the more traditional color we think of when we say "peach". Peach is between orange and pink but there are so many shades of colors in that little space on the color wheel.The tulip fabric is more peachy but also has pink and red in it. And the bud fabric on the left is very pinky peach in the background, more pink. But when compared to the peach skin, both fabric colors are found there I think.
My sweet friend Brenda down under at Bits and Pieces sent me the most lovely "house" fabric. Why are all my most favorite quilts made in Japan? Thanks so much Brenda I love it! Can't you see this fabric used in one of my cottages? I love the colors too. And it has that dark peachy pink as well. Can't wait to use this.
It is a weekend to catch the end of summer. Not much sewing will be done here, but more reaping the bounties of our summer garden.
