Pantone has chosen the 2013 Color of the year to be Emerald. Wow – Such a pretty color, and in a lot of tones.
2012’s Color was Tangerine. That was a bright color, but it is one that I hadn’t worked with much. By bringing this color to my attention, I think it made me look at it in a whole new perspective. I am not sure if it influenced by fabric buying, or just by paying better attention to what I had in my stash.
I know that it did draw my eye to those quilts in the quilt shows that used shades of orange. I am sure I would have seen them anyways – but the use of shades of orange drew my attention faster.
Here is my version of using the 2012 color.
Which brings me to ask you….. What do you think of the 2013 Color Emerald?
Will it change the way you purchase your fabrics?
Will it inspire you to make a quilt using those colors?
