...that I liked orange fabrics so much?
I was working on a secret project recently and when I was putting together a few orange scraps for it, I had a little lightbulb moment and realised that actually I really quite like orange and that I use it more often than I consciously realise.
Sometimes, of course, it's really much more obvious
Bright enough for you?
I realise as I look at these projects that orange does feature in my colour choices when I want to be bright and add a bit of cheeriness to a project. When I was making the quilt recently I even ordered a few orange solids to trial as bindings.
Top to bottom they are Klona orange, Kona Tangerine and Kona Orange.
I'll admit that I find the Kona Orange (bottom one) a bit murky and drab but the others are definitely oranges I would order again. In particular the Kona Tangerine is a stunning, deep shade and the Klona Orange, while not as rich as the Tangerine, was perfect for the quilt.
Let me just quickly qualify, for any family family members who may happen upon this post, that I would most likely probably NOT wear orange, so please don't be adding orange clothes to your Christmas list, but a wee orange fq is perfectly permissable!
Hmm, you learn something new about yourself every day.
Anyone else have a colour you realise you like to use a lot but wouldn't necessarily have listed it as one of your favourites?
