At the end of 2021, I learned about the “Pantone Color of the Year”. For 2022, it was a lovely Periwinkle and I used it to begin picking fabrics for this quilt…
Needless to say, I was anxiously awaiting the revelation of the 2023 Color of the Year, and I was NOT disappointed.
It is the very exciting VIVA MAGENTA….
I immediately started looking thru some of our travel photos, trying the match the color to Viva Magenta…..
and found these beauties……
And look at these two for a contrasting color to add in……
….or this one for a darker Magenta to add to it……
Now I cant wait to get into my stash and see what I can come up with!!
Is this a color that you would ever use???

I love magenta! I don’t think I have any magenta fabrics in my stash at the moment, but I wouldn’t hesitate to include it in a quilt.
I did a fabric pull the other day and was surprised that I didn’t have tons of them either. But, I see this more as an accent color so a little bit will go a long way!!
