Tangerine Orange (2012)

Now I am not much into these color trends,
 and being the prim person that I am,
these colors do not really turn me on.

But it did get me to thinking....

I just bought myself a new "OLD" Quilt
The colors in this quilt...

Are almost similar to the colors of today.
These colors are just faded from many washings
and was well loved...
so I guess I should retract my first statement. lol
Apparently I do like these color trends!
Just worn loved ones...

This pattern is called the Dresden Plate

Prim Colorful Warm Blessings to All


  1. Oh, what a beautiful quilt Janice. There's nothing like a well worn quilt. We can't make a new one look like that. I love my old quilts.

  2. I am not wild about those colors either, but in the quilt they are beautiful!
    Happy Weekend,

  3. I was a little worried about you my prim friend when I started reading this post - but - oh yeah - you got it definitely back on track with that gorgeous quilt!! Sometimes I am amazed at what some of the "old" textiles really looked like new. Positively garish some were.....But age softens and beautifies everything....well - almost everything - isn't working to great on my face these days. ;o) Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  4. Mmmm... love your new, old quilt! Those colors are beautifully worn, just the way I like them, too!
