Radiant Orchid

The Pantone color of the year is radiant orchid. Play Crafts has a fantastic discussion on this form of purple and accompanying color theory.

What's more, Play Crafts has teamed up with On the Windy Side to host a challenge.

2014 Pantone Quilt Challenge: Radiant Orchid

There are three categories: Minis (longest side under 30"), Quilts, and Just the Top. Projects need to have been started in 2014. The project must contain Radiant Orchard, or a similar purple. You can submit one entry per category. Entries must be linked to a blog post, Threadbias post, or Flickr page and include quilt dimensions. The link for entries will be open from March 14 - March 21 at 11 pm PST. Winners will be announced on March 26. There are many fantastic prizes. The guest judges are Allison Harris from Cluck Cluck Sew, Elizabeth Dackson from Don’t Call Me Betsy, and Lee Heinrich from Freshly Pieced.


Participants are encouraged to share their projects on the 2014 Pantone Quilt Challenge: Radiant Orchid Flickr Group or tag them on Instagram using #pantonequilt.
