It seems like this is the color of the month, it is popping up everywhere.
The ever so fabulous Pat Sloan is hosting a virtual retreat this weekend and she calls it the OP challenge. OP stands for Orange Pile!! Yes you are supposed to dig out your orange fabric, pile it up and wait for further instructions!! How fun is that. Check her blog to get more info.
Roseann of Rosebuds Cottage in St.Paul went on an Orange Scavenger Hunt and posted the most gorgeous pictures from her adventures..(ps. take me with you next time!!) Really fun stuff.
With all the orange in the air, I decided to make my own orange pile. I was actually really surprised when I started pulling things together about the fact that I have actually designed a lot of orange fabric myself!! And I have lots of gold too that didn´t make it into the photo, that could pass as orange....it would at least look good together in a quilt. I also just had to include the beige with the orange poppies...they were yelling at me to be included! So...I don´t know what I am gonna make with these, maybe I will just do Pat´s project this weekend or.....work on a new strip pattern!! I think these colors would be cool in that quilt with some browns and greens.
On a side note, I am going to Iceland next month to teach some classes and the signup is awesome! We had to get a bigger ballroom to fit the 70 ladies coming. I am very excited about it. Here is the ad, if you happen to know Icelandic!!
