Today’s Kona cotton color of the day is Orchid.
Orchids are the largest family of flowering plants and there are more than 25,000 documented species throughout the world. All I know is that it takes patience to grow orchids, and I have never attempted to try. I just learned that the first flower can take five to seven years to germinate, and the houseplants that you find in the store are usually a decade old. With my non-green thumb, I’m sure it would not take too long for me to kill one, and then I would feel terrible. I think I will stick with quilting, even if it takes me a long time to finish a quilt.
I know that we have shown this Circle of Friends quilt before but it is such a fun quilt. This quilt utilizes making half-square triangles using the four at a time technique and the placement of the HST’s and colors create a monochromatic or almost ombre effect. This is definitely going on my list if quilts that I want to make. Orchid is a pale purple and you can see that it works so well with the other purples and berry colors.
