How About Orange?

That's the name of a blog that I read regularly. I stumbled over it by accident. Was intrigued by the name, because I had recently become enamored of the color orange and wanted to investigate a blog that I believed would reveal a kindred spirit of sorts. I fall in love with color the same way I date.....one at a time. Don't get me wrong, I don't think there's a color out there that I don't like, but from time to time I absolutely go crazy for one color in particular. Right now, and for the past year it has been the color Orange.....oooooo-weeeeeeeeee, I love me some Orange!

So yesterday, on the How About Orange blog, I noticed that my kindred spirit (Jessica Jones) was showing fabrics she had designed recently and was devastated to discover that there is not an orange one in the bunch (as if I need one more piece of orange fabric!!!!). And, to add insult to injury, I will not be able to partake of the offering because the fabrics are designer weight ~ too heavy for quilting. I understand this of course, because she is a designer for the trade and not a quilter. (by the way, go take a look at her blog and see why I love it so)

Still, it got me curious about just how pervasive this love of orange was evidenced by my surroundings. So, camera in hand, I did a walk-through. And this is the result....see for yourself.

I enjoy orange too...I used a fair amount of it in a sting quilt-like yellow, it can really make a quilt pop
