    Kona Fabric of the Year- Orange What About You?

    Hi friends,
    MSQC just featured the limited edition Kona Orange, the 2018 color of the year. There are 3 colors I don't like and orange is one of them.
    However, I may get some just because. Have no clue what I'll do with it but sometimes I like colors I swore I didn't once I see them in something.

    Have you seen it? Do you like it? I must admit it's cheerful !

    Orange is my favorite color - this one is very appealing to me. Just about every quilt I make has some orange in it. Adds a certain spark (I almost never use muddy colors)

    Orange is a great color for kids quilts as a blender for a fun novelty.

    Orange is not one of my favorite colors, but I do try to have some in my stash, especially for using in kids' quilts.

    I am not an orange person most of the time........until it gets to October.

    I have not seen it, however I always think of Halloween when I see orange.

    I have only used orange in children quilts as well, oh actually that is not true I have made a couple of quilts using orange. I saw the orange that Kona is calling the color of the year and I had decided to get some, I think it's more red orange I think it would look great with one of my black background quilts with many vibrant colors.

    Oh i went through an orange phase in quilts. love it!!! backgrounds of orange, red or yellow really set off other colors. not just black, which is another love of mine.

    I think they're calling it Tiger Lily and I love it! It's a rich orange and I think it would look great in a fall/autumn quilt.
    Happy quilting everybody!

    I just looked at it, it is a deep, rich reddish orange. I like orange in it's many shades, a shade of orange looks great w/ nearly every color I can think of.

    I do have some fabrics with orange in them. Hopefully I will get them into some of my donation quilts I give to kids in foster care.

    Love love love bright colors....Orange is a staple in my stash that ranks right up there with white, neutral, black, and yellow. I could make each board member a quilt with just my staples...lol...

    I'm not a fan of orange and only use small amounts if it adds a pop to the other colors.

    Google: Pantone color of the year AND Kona color of the year -- they are two different colors and from decision makers that don't really have a relationship to each other.
