Today the prompt for the 31 Day Blogging Challenge was our favorite color, and it will come as no surprise to most of you that my go-to color is pink. The exact tone of pink that is my favorite varies over time, but it is always pink! This year Pantone agreed with my aesthetic and made Living Coral the 2019 color of the year.
Pink appears frequently as a key color in my quilts, and I thought it would be fun to see how I’ve used it in the past year. I used the Pantone Living Coral color in a dominant manor in two quilts, The Value of Coral and Forward and Back.
Hot pink is another favorite hue, and I used it in the Row by Row design I did this year.
It also appeared in the wall quilt version of the block, Ice Cream on the Beach.
I even managed to make a couple animals in my Zoo Family Portrait quilt bright pink!
Pink plays a dominant role in one of my matchstick quilting panels as well.
And pink in a huge range of specific hues played a role in creating my Stripe Club quilt.
Did you have a color that dominated your personal palette this year?
I am excited to be participating in this year’s 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge hosted by Cheryl Sleboda of Muppin.com, and I hope you will have the chance to check out some of the other awesome blogs that are participating this month.
