Leave a comment on the blog for a chance to win one of 5 FQ Sets from Cotton & Steel.

This will be my last color post for now. I’m finding there are not enough hours in the day to write, plan and create What Goes With What color posts while working full time outside the quilting industry. My goal is to fill my days off with things that feed my passion to create and going on adventures with friends and family. I plan to continue writing the blog but the focus will be about what I’m creating in my life. Watch for the next post. Hint “BIG Giveaway”!

Pantone Spring Colors for 2015

Pantone Spring

I’ve seen quite a bit of discussion on the 2015 Pantone Color of the Year. Whether you like it or not. It’s created a stir. The Pantone Institute introduces 10 colors for Women’s Fashion and 10 colors for Men’s Fashion for the spring of each year. I will focus on women’s fashion. The palette on a whole is very pleasing to me. It’s soft and comfortable with a happy retro feel.

Here are the Kona Cotton coordinates for the 2015 Pantone Spring Palette.

PantoneKona2015

My goal is to find just the right tone for each color. Some may be lighter or darker depending upon the photo used and the availability of that color in the manufacturers color selection. In other words, I am limited by the colors that are being produced at that time. Let’s take Marsala as an example. In my first blog post on Marsala I chose richer colors in order to get the right tone. There really isn’t a close match. After serious consideration over the weekend I believe Sienna is closer to the Pantone Marsala. Sienna is lighter with both brick and pink undertones.

Pantone Color of the Year 2015 – Marsala

PantoneMarsala

Pantone announced the Color of the Year for 2015 – Marsala
I’m not sure what to think. Do ya like it, love it, or what?

Welcome to the brand new What Goes With What blog! What a great way to start off the fun. Those of you who have followed Pink Chalk Studio’s blog have seen many What Goes With What blog posts. I usually take a designer collection of fabric and provide the solid fabrics which coordinate. Today I’m working with Marsala, the color of 2015.

Marsala is a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in to its embracing warmth. Leatrice Eiseman Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute
