Colours of 2016

Hope you are enjoying these often casual, relaxing few days between Christmas and New Year, with some time to think about where your quilting might go in 2016.

You might want to contemplate which colours are likely to appear in fabric next year (somewhat subject to the forces of fashion as it always is). Here are two contrasting campaigns for particular colours:

Robert Kaufman Fabrics has announced the beginning of an annual release of one its popular Kona solid cotton patchwork fabrics in a 'colour of the year' that will be available only for that one year. The first one is the bright and cheerful yellow,  Highlight. A 'look book' of free patterns has been released as part of the marketing campaign to stimulate ideas. It might be just what you have been waiting for. 

On the other hand, Pantone's colour of the year for 2016 was released earlier in December to a mixed reception, and is actually two colours, Rose Quartz and Serenity.
Does either proclamation excite your colour sense?
