    Show me your orange!

    I recently painted my little bathroom butter yellow and have decorated using nature colors and am almost done with a valance for the window. Part of my new transformation. Long story. Anyway ...

    For some reason lately I'm obsessed with fabrics in orange. It's such a bright, happy color and it reminds me of sunsets and desert landscapes (I used to live in AZ).

    I'd like to make a small rectangular or oval wallhanging using oranges, greens, yellows, but have no idea what pattern would work, so I'd love to see yours, even if it's a block in a quilt.

    Please share!

    here's my orange quilt-

    it was supposed to be pink & black- but the fabulous orange fabrics kind of took over- my
    'quilt police hubby' informed me- if i had bordered it in pink it would not have turned into an orange quilt
    of course---but i loved the border fabric- and it is what it is Name:  april 14_893.JPG

    I have this quilt loaded & am in the process of quilting it now- i'm using orange thread on the top- have a pink/red/orange hand dyed backing which i am using a veriegated red on the back.
    hiding away in my stash where i'm warm, safe and happy

    I hear that orange is the "IN" color for this year (in both clothing and home decor). Often referred to as tangerine.

    disclaimer: I have nothing against orange, and no orange has been hurt in asking these questions. Off to find pictures of my orange quilt ;-)

Size:  1.39 MBHere's an orange quilt I made for a cousin. I'd never made anything with orange in it before (and may not again), but I also did a bunch of swaps here on this board and even received donations of free orange fabric in order to complete this. My cousin LOVES it, and it looks great in her loft, which has a lot of exposed brick and hardwood floors.
