Yellow and Orange


 If you are in my Facebook group I shared a special exhibit coming to the New England Quilt Museum called Yellow and Orange! 

Two colors when used in quilts really get in your face! LOL Here is my orange stars in a time warp quilt. I never have regretted this color to use as a setting. 

This antique with chrome yellow is quite spectacular and makes a big statement!

Get a sneak peak of some of the "Quilts from the Pilgrim/Roy Collection" HERE

How do you feel about these colors in quilts?

  1. I love the results, yet those are colors that I don't think to use. Or at least not in great quantity like the quilts you've shown.

  4. I don't tend to use yellow--but I made my grandson an orange spider web one for his going away to college quit pairing with B/W prints and adding some peach tones...Yellow is difficult for me--it seems to just take over...hugs, Julierose

  10. Of course I love both colors, the brighter the better! I am more drawn to cheddar/ chrome orange and won a number of cheddar quilts; the chrome yellow is rarer, but I love it.

  14. I love yellow and orange in quilts. Sadly, I am currently just using my stash and I have used up most of those colors but someday soon, I will start stash building again and yellow and orange will definitely be on my shopping list.

  16. I love these colors--and enjoyed the link on the Facebook group. I do use cheddar more than yellow, but I did just buy a yard of chrome yellow at my favorite quilt shop yesterday. I think they add sparkle and dimension to a quilt.
    Your examples are stunning!

  17. I love your star quilt so much. I love incorporating orange and yellow but have yet to use it as background or setting. One of these days!

  18. I love your quilt better than those in the exhibit. Very nice. I can't seem to find that color when I'm looking. Beautiful.

  21. I love those quilts! Having lived in a 1903 house with original windows, in Oregon, the rooms were quite dark. I had an antique quilt with blues, turkey reds and cheddars. So cheerful! Your quilt is beautiful.

  22. I LOVE using them in a quilt! Both of yours here are spectacular. It's kind of a tough color to use, but always so worthwhile. I have noticed that they can be a little harder to give away though! lol
