Falling in love with Orange

 
I know the color orange isn't on everybody's short list of favorite colors.  This fall, I cannot seem to take my eye off it. 

From bed sheets, to glass pumpkins, or tiny pumpkins to a simple bowl of tangerines (do they really fight off cold bugs?)...there seems to be orange everywhere I look.

Even America's pastime is looking nice and orange this year.

I've never been compelled to make a fall themed quilt, but I have found myself thinking about them this year.

There are many beautiful Halloween Baltimore album quilts out there.  I also admire this little basket quilt that Jan from Be Mused blog has been working on.  Very simple and sweet. 

If there is a fall quilt that you have made, or you have ideas for one in your heart someday, send me a link to a photo. 

I'm in an orange mood.

Oh, and if you noticed the quilt in the background of the photo above...you guessed it - that is the antique quilt top that I adopted at PIQF recently.

I am starting to love orange now too...this just made me laugh! I have always liked cheddar but now its moved over to other shades of oranges....thinking of having to do a quilt for Hallweeen/fall next year in colors like Jan showed for her baskets too!

I've always loved orange.. it was even my wedding color! I bought that baltimore halloween album quilt a looooong time ago. Maybe it's time to start it?

It's funny that you mention baseball.. it drives my husband crazy because both teams have orange!
