Default 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 hides my ruddy complexion.

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

I really like orange in a quilt, I use it as often as I can!

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 am a fan of orange period. I have orange clothing, orange walls in my living room, an orange cat and an orange dog.
