Orange & Green

I thought I might do some orange dyeing but then I checked my hand-dye stash.  This is just a small portion!

The orange and cobalt/blue combos shown by Terry in her earlier post exemplify the calming power of blue.  Pair orange and green and a different dynamic emerges.
Over on the Canton Village Quilt Works blog, you can view some high energy orange quilt blocks.

I checked and I have nil hand-dyed orange. I don't even have orange dye. I guess I could use red and yellow. I do have some nice orange batiks.

I love the energy, especially in the top photo. The second photo has a much calmer blue cast.
