I know blue and orange are complimentary but I just can't bring myself to use a lot of orange with my blues yet. They look good here though.
I must confess, the orange with blue is so striking. I tend to use it more with the yellows and reds and now I know I could use more bright blues!
I agree, I would not have used the orange with blue either, but I do love how it looks.
I just love the orange & blue quilt. I have used orange & blue before, but with more blue than orange. This balance is very striking!!
