For this week's sewing round up I have a lot of orange...
|the bats and boos quilt is in process of being quilted now|
|love a scrappy pin cushion|
remember back to the 70's?? I do... The colors were earthy harvest gold, avocado green , chocolate brown, and hanging on was 60's orange. I didn't like it then but now that I mix my own orange paint,
I did the large hexie kaleidoscope blocks in orange
and looked at them with the others... how pretty it will be!
I made a tablecloth from fabric that refused to be put back in it's drawer...
and hardly worried at all about making something with the cute fabric as it's still basically just fabric!
I chose two silly orange fabrics to make my sweaters of the month in RSC colors... Imagine walking down the street wearing these! ( Imagine walking down the street again safely...) I really want a black sheep sweater myself... I've never felt like I fit in...
I didn't quilt in the 70's but did in the 80's. I owned brown sheets, so chic according to my sister who was tired of girly sheets. I had orange toned towels and funny enough when we moved to Colorado I got a lovely terracotta shade of towels. My husband thinks my favorite color is still purple but I am currently leaning toward turquoise... and coral.
I love all the colors and learned from painting that all the colors are needed.
I also like many artforms but so far always return to sewing. How about you?
