Orange Mosaic Patchwork

Well. I worked in oranges yesterday.


I found the perfect colored thread for the topstitching in my stash.



Bright orange thread


I must admit that it was a challenge not to choose too many salmon pinks. It was very hard for me to make sure that this was a really orange piece. It is definitely not a color that I am drawn to. I really like using it as a contrast color but I was not in my comfort zone while creating.


I had divided the shades into different piles for color depth and found myself instinctively reaching for the rust and orangy pink piles because those are the colors that I feel more attuned to.


I forced myself instead, to choose from the yellow/orange pile and the tie dyed scraps which were a really sunny orange.

I am not sure that I would do this again. It was a very thought out and planned artistic exercise which is in complete contrast to the way that I normally work.


I usually take a pile of fabric in a color family and sift, take out those that don't "speak to me" and add those that resonate, till I achieve a mix that I feel a wholeness with. That is a process that gives me joy.


Overall, I am happy with the result.
