I’m not one of those quilters who pays much attention to the Pantone Color of the Year. I just sew with what I find appealing. I was looking at the Color of the Year for the previous 6 years and they missed the mark for me, but I suppose they know better than I do. Pantone describes the Color of the Year as;
A symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.
Well I must be ahead of my time because Pantone has announced the color of the year for 2017 and this time they nailed it as far as I am concerned.
Pantone has announced the 2017 Color of the Year is Greenery! I have loved this color for so long. My friend Jen refers to it as Stephanie’s Green. I love it because it reminds me of being outside where everything is alive. Pantone describes it as;
A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.
Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew.
I look forward to continuing to find ways to use Greenery in my sewing.
