2017 Pantone Colour of the Year: Greenery

From reactions online, it looks like Pantone's 2017 Colour of the Year, Greenery, will be more

popular with quilters than the last couple of years' choices. Expect to see lots of Greenery in all sorts of products (indicting that the choice is made well in advance of its public announcement) during 2017.

The announcement page on the Pantone website includes a collection of colour schemes including Greenery - could be a useful starting point for quilts.

'The PANTONE name is known worldwide as the standard language for accurate color communication, from designer to manufacturer to retailer to customer, across a variety of industries.'

Have you used hues similar to Greenery in your quilts,
or have plans to? This 8" block was made in 2015 for the
Sydney Modern Sewists and Quilters 2016 Group Quilt
- the Mini Pearl Bracelets' print designed by Lizzy House
 for Andover Fabrics is pretty close to Greenery,
as is the medium tone in the other green print.
