    and I have no desire for an orange quilt, and orange clothes don't look good on me, I figured next best thing would be to accessorize (sp?). Here's my new Amelie bag, pattern by Geta's Romanian Quilting Studio. I enjoyed making this, as it challenged my abilities. It wasn't hard- it just had me do things I had never done before- ex: put in a zipper on the side of a bag, and a couple of other things I had never done before. I loved how it turned out. Included with the downloadable pattern is a picture tutorial. I really appreciated that- very clear instructions. Thanks, Geta!

    I agree! But, seriously, start noticing the newscasters- orange, melon, tangerine, anything in that family. Some of them shouldn't be wearing it either! :-)

    Love your bag. I have been drawn toward using orange in my quilts for the past six months. I don't know why, but I sudden want it. I do not wear it though.

    Here's the link to the etsy shop of the designer.

    http://www.etsy.com/listing/62318495/amelie-bag-pattern

    Geta's patterns are renowned for the excellent directions and (crazy) abundance of step-by-step pictures.

    Really, they're unlike anything on the market today.
