It's the Orange month!
Create something using orange or a pumpkin shape. Do something different, not just a Halloween holiday item, but get creative with the basic color tone of orange or a shade of orange. Or you could use a color combination incorporating orange.
Either way let orange inspire you!
This month's challenge was truly challenging. You see, in my world view, all colors are not created equal -- and truth be told, orange is my least favorite of all the colors on the color wheel.
I mean, orange is the color of prison coveralls, life vests, and traffic cones -- and when it comes to terror threat levels, orange is a very unnerving color! Now, I admit orange has some redeeming qualities -- I like juicy oranges from Florida and Fall foliage. But I just think the colors on the cool side of the color wheel are, well --- WAY COOLER!
Thankfully, Abigail Jayne gave us permission to use orange as part of a color combination -- and I do like orange and gray. They play well together. SO---when I found some really cute fox fabric, I decided I could rise to this month's challenge and make a unisex baby bib in orange and gray.
Those adorable little foxes are from the 100% organic cotton Picture Pie collection for Cloud 9 Fabrics. The orange and white grid fabric on the reverse side was designed by Lotta Jansdotter for her Bella collection. I even used an orange snap:
And -- because I had some scraps left over, I made a few more cord keepers.
Hmmm---maybe I like orange a little bit after all! So, like the food skeptic in Dr. Seuss's classic children's book, Green Eggs and Ham, I will thank the one who nudged me way out of my color comfort zone. Thank you, thank you, Abigail Jayne!
