The Orange Effect

"Orange is very blatant and vulgar. It makes you immediately start having feelings." -Wolf Kahn

Newest Mod Square Quilt:


Psychological Effect: Orange has been shown to have only positive affects on your emotional state. The color orange relieves negative feelings such as self-pity, lack of self-worth and unwillingness to forgive. Orange uplifts your emotions and is a terrific antidepressant.


Physiological Effect: Orange has been shown to have a positive effect on one's libido and can be beneficial to the digestive system as well as strengthen the immune system.

I love the color Orange!

Oh, what would Wolfie think of me since it's one of my favorite colors! I always asscociate my oldest son with orange- it's just suits his (generally) happy demeanor . I love it on boys. These 3 tones are really energizing.

I'm another orange fan! This new quilt is super and it makes me smile just looking at at! Orange is a very happy colour. Also, the colour orange is the theme of Harmony Day and the wearing of orange clothing is encouraged on the 21st of March every year over here :)

Hey I love the description in your shop for these mod square quilts:

"It's Mod.
It's Square.
It's a Mod Square!"

...hehe...sounds like the beginning of a cool super hero theme song. The Mod Square Super Hero Series! Love it! I now have this little tune stuck in my head!

Oh Orange, how I love thee!

I have read that orange symbolizes change, which many people resist. Maybe that's why many people dislike orange? I, for one, adore the color: it is DELICIOUS! Especially in your hands, my dear!

Thanks for the color insight - and the wonderful piece! Oh and that fiesta pitcher!

I used to hate orange (I think b/c of the hate for our rival college team that was bred into me) but now I love it. My living room is mango and I've been noticing everything I buy for the house has a hint of orange. I've had a total change of heart. And of course, I love your new orange creation.

I have some thick orange ski socks I have been wearing all winter and I love them. And I haven't really been sick at all now I come to think about it!
