August 15th- Orchid- Patience My Friend

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.
