Orange. Orange is the challenge color for March. I have to admit, I’m kind of indifferent about orange. It’s there, I don’t love it, I don’t hate it.
Orange is a secondary color that comes from mixing red and yellow in equal portions. Orange is the color of citrus fruit and the color orange is known to be an appetite stimulant. Because it’s so easy to see it often is used to signal safety. Prior to the late 15th century, Europeans simply referred to orange as yellow-red until they were introduced to orange trees, then they finally had a name for this color!
I chose this orange cross hatch fabric for this month’s block. I think it’s a very true orange.
