I am obviously very excited about Panotone’s Emerald and the Color of the Year: Emerald Challenge for sewists (that’s a real word, I promise!) and quilters. However, I can understand a person’s hesitancy if they don’t normally love green.
So, as encouragement, I wanted to show all the places I have seen the emerald color during the last two weeks. I’m tellin’ you…emerald is everywhere. I hope you are seeing it too!
This emerald colored shirt is called Bow Beautiful. My friend Courtney has an clothing business called Cowgirl Crush and just last week I noticed this pretty blouse in her spring line up. The shirt is for sale here.
Here’s a photo I snapped on my phone while shopping at JC Penny in Columbia, Missouri. This photo is right on the way into their store. Its huge – floor to ceiling.
Then, inside JCP I saw a whole rack of emerald green separates. There were skirts, cardigans, jackets and sleeveless blouses. This grouping seemed to have a more turquoise hue.
Finally, I saw these cropped dress pants. Wouldn’t they be cute with a black shirt and flats? Simple & chic.
I hope this is a little emerald inspiration for your projects for the Color of the Year: Emerald Challenge. I’ll be sharing pictures of my quilt-in-progress soon. I have started cutting out the pieces, but no sewing quite yet. There’s 134 days until the contest deadline!
Thanks for reading, Sierra Shea
