Orange and Blue

A friend of mine is getting married this June, so I thought some homemade decorative pillows were in order. The happy couple is all about orange and blue, so picking fabric wasn't strenuous. I'm more and more a fan of orange with each passing day. I'm not an orange addict yet, but I'm inching closer to that slippery slope!

Go team orange! The pillows are adorable. Orange/blue weddings must be trendy -- at my brother's wedding 3 weeks ago, those were the colors, too!

I love the pillows. Can I have a pair? Just kidding.

Someone recently looked at my fabric stash and said, "I take it you like the color orange."

Your pillows are gorgeous. I'm a huge fan of pillows for gifts. In fact I just made and blogged one yesterday.

Your friends have excellent taste. That is one of my favourite colour combos. We'll convert you yet.

The pillows are lovely! I am not a huge orange fan either but I do love the patterns! I really like the way you blocked the different fabrics together on the pillow fronts.

Your Amy Butler color combinations are perfect. When orange is paired with blue, it makes it so much nicer.
