Tangerine Tango

The Pantone color of the year for 2012 is Tangerine Tango. For those of us orange addicts, it's going to be a great year!
Tangerine Tango is vibrant, uplifting and universally flattering. What else does this girl need?

I saw this on the Pantone FB page yesterday. Those interested in color trends, pairings, mood, etc should "like". They have some awesome free Webinars. I'm not a huge fan of orange but I like this one. My late '70s eye would love this with royal purple. Your color, Jacquie - trendsetter!

When you spoke in Los Angeles about 6 months ago you talked of your love of orange. So when I heard that Pantone had chosen Tangerine Tango as its color of the year, I immediately thought of you.

That's just the endorsement you needed, right?

OOh beautiful! I can't wait for the stores to be full of orange things!!

Nanci said...

I swore I'd never use orange again as I had so much of it. Now, down to just a bitty little bit. And I bought an orange linen outfit for spring...yep, orange is happy.
Just a question, when you do the small square quilting...is it done on a sewing machine and secondly how long does this take you to do?
The look is amazing, but do I have enough life left to do this?

I read your blog often and just had to smile when I saw this post. When I asked my 3 year old grandson what he wanted for Christmas he said "a mickey rocket ship and a orange shirt" !! So grammy has been busy trying to find him an orange shirt. Love your blog and your quilts, happy holidays.
