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.
