Pantone Radiant Orchid – fabric picks

Pantone Radiant Orchid fabric

Pantone, the colour geniuses, have announced their ‘Color of the Year’ for 2014 – Radiant Orchid!

So obviously the first thing we did was to race to our fabric stash and start pulling anything with this beautiful purple, lilac, amethyst hue – old or new. Pantone Radiant Orchid isn’t as popular a colour as many, but it’s now sure to be having its moment in 2014, in fashion, interiors and of course, quilting!
