Have you heard that the Pantone color for 2019 is Living Coral. This is one of my all time favorite colors and it will be fun to use it this year in different quilt projects.
Pantone also has put together five different harmony groups to go with the Living Coral. You can find all of them on their How to Use Pantone Color of the year 2019 page.
I pulled the Trippy Harmony palette into Photoshop and used the colors in a mockup of my Confetti quilt pattern. Pantone describes these colors as “A palette of hallucinogenic shades with dizzying effects.”
I have a feeling I’m going to add a few more colors or keep looking for the perfect color palette that really appeals to me. I think I would like a brighter teal and possibly a green. There is also a beautiful subtle collection with just corals and tans that is very elegant looking.
I’m going to have to go through my stash of Island Batik fabrics and see if I have something close to the Living Coral color.
The Ikea Algot storage system has to be one of my favorite ways to store my batiks. Read more about my Ikea Algot bins. I sure wish we had an Ikea closer to us!
I should make my Forget Me Nots wall hanging again using colors like the Living Coral. Don’t forget you can get the FREE tutorial for it!
I have two new quilts for Island Batik that I am finishing up, today I’ll sew the labels on the back as I forgot to add them before I did the quilting. These are for Island Batik’s Spring 2019 collections that will be shown at quilt market. Then it is time to finish wrapping up the Christmas presents!
What do you think of the Living Coral Pantone color for 2019? Any plans to create a quilt project with it?
