More colour theory - is this really orange?

I am still loving making small quilts and working on colour theory. This table runner is 13 by 30 inches, and hand quilted with #8 perle cotton with a wool batting. The colour scheme is very interesting. It is almost complimentary, using tones and shades of orange, a tint of blue green, and then a neutral off-white.
I have photographed the colour wheel to show that these really are "orange" colours.
