I love orange in Fall quilts and in landscape quilts. However this one looks more rust to me it may be the lighting on the picture I found.

Tiger Lily...I’m not going to rush out to buy some but I can see where it may come in handy. Orange isn’t one of my “go to” colors.

Those are gorgeous, ckcowl....

I love orange too. Changed my colors for the Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt to orange and royal blue.


Border will be a "twist" with blue predominant and orange and neutral background.

I like orange in the right quilt, especially fall ones, Pantone has Ultra Violet as there color of the year-which I love & use to decorate my home, so I use both the violet and orange in the fall-Guess Im in style this year!

A little bit of Orange can really liven up a quilt, and make it look more inviting. I use orange far more than I ever thought I would, that's for sure.

I love orange except for red/orange and this seems to be a red orange. Still looking forward to seeing everything created with orange.
