stitching, quilting, fabric, projects
Apparently the blogisphere jumped too early on this one, me included.
Pantone have announced that the colour of 2014…. is Radiant Orchid not Dazzling Blue – that was only one of the colours they were thinking of. Somebody’s in trouble haha.
So soft purple then, not as pink as lilac, not as blue as lavender? – well that’s how I’d describe the background of this banner.
I can’t wear this colour, it’s too muted for me – but my hubby can as he’s a SUMMER – so I’ll buy him some new shirts when they hit the stores next spring (he already has a few very similar) and whip them off him to recycle into my quilts and pillows in a years time 🙂
BUT – this is a soft plum and I think this is what all the fuss is about. It has warm undertones, is it vibrant enough for SPRINGs?
There was a Tutti Frutti sweet the colour of this chip. It was the only one in the pack I didn’t like the flavour of, but it always looked so appealing. Remember them? – 1970’s? So to me this is Tutti Frutti and I’ll be interested to see how easy it is to wear.
If you cant wear it, quilt with it 🙂
