Orange chandelier

12 more chandelier blocks, this time using orange scraps. Orange makes me very happy. I love the orange scent, and orange blossom is such a lovely  scent. I remember riding along with my father through orange groves as he estimated the yield. When the trees were in blossom it was an unforgettable aroma, that a young girl never forgot.
so my design wall was pretty this week. I've done about 12 blocks in each color so far. I have no idea how they will go together, but I know orange will spark the whole quilt.
Orange is made with the energy of red, and the joy of yellow.

I found this online
Orange promotes a sense of general wellness and emotional energy that should be shared, such as compassion, passion, and warmth. Orange will help a person recover from disappointments, a wounded heart, or a blow to one's pride. The meaning of the color orange is stimulating, vibrant, and flamboyant.
There are many shades of orange, one of the prettiest to me is coral.

  2. I made an orange spiderweb for my eldest grandson as his "going away to college" quilt--it's his favorite color...I need to see it with either white, b&W or blues for me to like it--the peach variation is more my favorite...your chandelier is growing and it will be so gorgeous...hugs for a happy weekend Julierose

  9. Love your chandelier blocks. I have my orange ones cut out, but only have two sewn together. Other projects need finishing and I've been doing outdoor work (and my neck knows it tonight. It was in the 40's last weekend and tomorrow is going to be in the mid-80's. No spring I guess this year.
