With a lot of Kaffe Fassett fabrics and wovens, I started this top.
I had never worked with his fabric collection before, but somehow when I decided to start buying them, my choice was orange and yellow tones. What I realized when I was washing, cutting and sewing these fabric was that it was making me quite happy – nothing new for quilters, that’s our passion. But it was more than just happy as usual, I felt good about it. Perhaps because I was having a difficult time, I was feeling down. Working on this quilt helped me to liven up.
I remember I read once about the meaning of colors, but did not pay much attention to it. After this experience I got curious and looked for an answer. These are some of the explanations I found:
Orange is a power color. It is one of the healing colors.(…) It also stimulates enthusiasm and creativity. Orange means vitality with endurance.
¨ Orange combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow. It is associated with joy, sunshine, and tropics.
¨ Orange represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation.
¨ Orange increases oxygen supply to the brain, produces an invigorating effect, and stimulates mental activity. It is highly accepted among young people.
¨ Orange is the color of fall and harvest.
How about that?
I was amazed how true that was – in my case, anyway.
How do you feel about colors? Are they an issue for you?
Time to tame the “beast”!
A good advice I was given was to put an ironing board at the same level as the table so that you get more even space.
It was done when the leaves started to fall.
I just love it.
Changing to another color…
A little “Granny Smith” for a dear friend:
Until next time!
Have a lovely and creative day!
