Pantone's 2017 Color of the Year: Greenery

Posted by Deirdre Quirk on Dec 28th 2016

Pantone has announced their 2017 color of the year: Greenery! As they say in their announcement, "Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew... A life-affirming shade, Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality." Personal passions such as quilting and sewing, perhaps? In honor of the start of the new year, and of all of our personal passions, we've pulled together some of our favorite projects that showcase this beautiful color. (You can read more about this shade, and see some of Pantone's suggested palettes, right here.)

Stained glass quilts are the perfect way to showcase color, evoking images of light streaming through colored glass. This beauty is from Allie Aller's Stained Glass Quilts Reimagined

Doesn't this petite quilt from Art Quilt Collage speak perfectly to that feeling on springing forth into a new year?

In this gorgeous bag from Hack That Tote!, the Greenery-colored vinyl serves to perfectly set off that famous and oh-so-appealing Tula Pink fabric. 

This modern stunner from Quilts du Jour is called Tempting Turnovers. How appropriate!

Trish Price is a master at quilting in the negative space, as she shows in Accentuate the Negative. Here, shades of green, including Greenery, provide the perfect canvas. 

Greenery can be sweet and old-fashioned, too! This pretty little sewing case is from A New Dimension in Wool Appliqué—Baltimore Album Style
