New Fabrics!

This yummy package of quilting fabrics was in my mailbox last week! It's awesome to get something other than bills or junk mail and the colours here are vibrant and . . . very orange! I'm not usually a trendy person - just ask anyone who knows me! Normally, I would just continue to buy the fabrics I am comfortable with and hope that sooner or later, the trends will return to what I love. But, I am intrigued by the colour orange - how it looks with grey, or white, or the many shades of blue. In my mind, I have a mono-chromatic quilt imagined with a very traditional quilt pattern, but a modern orange colour palette.

Have you tried any colours that are outside of your normal colour scheme, either in your decorating or your quilting?
