Cute. I have a lot of orange, but mostly use it as accent to brighten up a quilt. Yellow, I use the same way. Now, thanks to you and your son, I may have to re-think that strategy.

Your addition of red and white sure is fresh with the orange. Tell your son he "done good."
Thanks. Actually, what appears to be red is really a deep red orange.... My camera, as it turns out, isn't too accurate when it comes to colors. Often a purple fabric looks blue when I take a picture. Maybe it is time to learn how to take pictures with my cell phone.

I like the story and it sounds so much like what a loving son would do-we have three sons and I can anyone of them doing this. I think it wonderful that your son is interested in your quilting hobby. I like orange very much and use it a lot. It just adds sparkle. I like the quilt you made with your orange and I think it will always bring smiles when you use it.

Great job...I agree that it is good for you (and us) to stretch our boundaries from time to time and can see that it would be fun to play with such a colorful collection of fabrics. I’m sure most of us have our favorite go to colors. : )

What a fun gift from a son! Orange is so unappreciated. You'll think of your son when you snuggle under it!

I look much better if I wear orange. I have a very ruddy complexion.
