First off, I need to say that Ochre isn't a color I would have thought to fancy! Nor, would I have expected to find so much in my stash which went in that colorway. Thanks so much for this challenge which opened my eyes!!
My inspiration pieces: Just love the oriental mum piece! Found a narow stip of fall fabric with
orangey-rust, cranberry and some beautiful green leaves in my stash ... origins unknown. May need to take myself on a search for more yardage of that one (any excuse will do ... no?). Neglected to photo before putting all my scraps away.
The large block:
The border block: strange orientation on this photo, but you get the idea.
The small star block:
I've been playing with this for days now and still can't get it exactly as I like. Apparently I don't play well with ochre :(. Maybe too many prints, maybe too much light. In any event, I'm done pulling my hair out on this one. Now off to show orange!
Great fabrics and color combinations!
I like the subtleties of the block. I'm a big one for contrast, but my favorite thing is to throw in some that blend in and out in a quilt... I really like this block!
That print with the chrysanthemums is terrific. I like the way these blocks look.
