Did you know that there is a “color of the year”?
Last year it was turquoise. My favorite.
This year it’s emerald. Nearly as awesome.
Rachel at Stitched in Color is holding a contest for her readers to come up with a list of nine fabrics from the fatquartershop that portray emerald.
This is my vision.
I call it, “Trip to the Emerald City.”
I finished reading an abridged version of The Wizard of Oz to Olivia last night. I love both the book and movie.
For my fabrics I chose mostly emeralds, but threw in some yellow brick road, a little bit of Dorothy’s dress, and some red for her ruby red slippers. (Though in the book her slippers are silver…)
It was tough finding emerald green fabrics. (Hint, hint, designers!!) I’ve been scouting out greens for a few years now and still have a limited selection in my stash. Hopefully this “color of the year” business will spur someone to bust out more great emerald prints!
