Pantone's Fall Colors

Believe it or not, Summer is almost over. Yes, it is sad, but who doesn't love Fall? I know I do! The colors, the leaves, the pumpkins, the perfect jeans and light jacket weather! Fall is my most creative time of year! Not too cold, not too hot, it is just right! Perfect for finishing gifts for the holidays! Theresa from FabShop says, "Every season, Pantone releases a new color report, an offering of the hues we’ll be seeing in fashion, textiles, and home furnishings for the upcoming season. With Fall 2011, the colors have transitioned from the brights of summer to more subdued shades–darker and warmer. Pantone’s color of the year, Honeysuckle, remains popular and integrates well with the more typical autumn colors. Already these shades are showing up in upcoming fabric collections. Moda Fabrics has a new collection, Indian Summer by Laundry Basket Quilts, which uses the coffee liqueur, nougat, honeysuckle and emberglow colors."
