Pantone's color for 2015 is Masala which on the Kona chart most resembles Wine with a little Brick and Sienna thrown in. It reminds me of a darker version of a popular dusky rose red from the late 80's. Think I prefer it as a dark accent like in the quilts below and in the vintage hooked rug above which would look amazing as a log cabin quilt. Masala does look great in larger swathes in genuinely antique quilts and there are some very tempting reproduction fabrics out there. As for 2015, this year my goal is plainly just to sew. 2014 was a disaster on the making front. Here's hoping most of all that my family is healthier, my computer and sewing machine also cooperate and that I can carve out way more personal time. Would also like to catch up on months of blog posts as I feel very out of touch and am dying to see what you've all been up to... Happy New Year!
