Pink & Orange Vintage Fabric Color Combo

There are several vintage fabric color combos that just make me swoon...Chartreuse & Grey, Red & Pink, Aqua & Yellow, and PINK & ORANGE. That's the one I'm showing today.
Judging from the prints in my collection, I think this combo was popular during the 1960's to early 70's.
Love this grouping below of stripes, paisley, and organic circle shapes! They also incorporate a yellowy-green into the mix.
Next is a trio of brighter tones including daisies and little hearts on green stems, a polka dot pique, and a gorgeous bright pink, orange and green print. And how perfect are these two mod daisy prints together?! Love them! Two of the pink and orange fabrics are recent additions to my collection thanks to a wonderfully fun vintage fabric swap with Jenny of Blempgorf. Thanks Jenny! She has an awesome array of fabrics and uses them in the most creative quilts and sewing projects. Here's a photo of all the lovelies she sent me...Aren't they awesome! I can't wait to use them. If you're looking for some PINK & ORANGE of your own, several of these are available on the website. Sorry, but you can't have my new ones. :-) (photos are also clickable)

They are beautiful. I was lucky enough to get some too. I love pink and orange together. I also love pink and red together. Lots of people are afraid of putting colors like that together. I say do it!

Love the pink and orange fabric. I think you are right about the timeframe. I remember my mom made me a pink dress with very similar happy bright colored flowers in the 60's.
