Pure & Orange, go together like bread and butter

This is a true story.
I purchased a bundle of Pure at quilt market.
I have no real plans for it.
I was kinda hoping that some super creative quilter designer would make a quilt for my inspiration.
So one day about 3 weeks or so ago, I was blog hopping. One to the next with no real end in site.
I found this blog. This creative quilter Christine paired orange with Pure charms.
I thought "wow, that's a great idea".
I mentally filed it and moved on.
While I was in Amish country with my friend Carol on the 6th, she and I were talking and I said that I wanted to find an orange to pair with Pure.
We were rummaging through a 1 yard for $4 bin and I picked up this orange with red circles.
I told Carol, this is what I think will work.
Okay, flash forward to yesterday...I'm blog hopping again...
and I find this cool quilter that paired orange with Pure.
and low and behold...
her orange...

well it's the exact same as the orange I picked up in Charm.
It must have made quite an impression on me.
I don't think I could pull that off twice, ever!
I didn't intend on using the same orange. This one just 'fit'.
I have no idea whether or not I will make a windmill like Christine did,
I'll let you know when I decide LOL.

I love that new fabric, beautiful shades and prints.
I have a red like that, fun fabric to work with. I can't wait to see what you make with them.

That you found the exact fabric is amazing. Almost as amazing as my husband noticing that a piece of OOP fabric I ordered in one colorway was the same print as another I had on hand in a different color. I didn't think he even looked at fabric!!

I'm so flattered! I can't wait to see what you come up with! :) ~Christine
