Have you read the news? Pantone declares Radiant Orchid the Color of the Year for 2014! Here is the official Pantone color swatch below, as well as our very best Radiant Orchid fabric picks for you all! You can see them up on our Hawthorne Threads home page gallery now, as well as our Pinterest page.
An enchanting marriage of purple, pink, and fuchsia, this charming color exudes confidence and romance. If this enigmatic hue has eluded your stash, you can see even more choices here in our shop!
Blooming with radiance and spark, this color will no doubt inspire passionate sewing projects. The girls at Hawthorne Threads were already inspired to whip up some Radiant Orchid sewing projects - using those Aurifil spools of Fuchsia, Magenta, Light Magenta, and Medium Orchid of course)!
Whether you're accessorizing your wardrobe with a pretty clutch, headband or scarf, or updating your home decor with bright pops of color, this regal shade speaks to feminine and sophisticated tastes.
This color is also a great choice for tech accessories, like this simple iPAD sleeve above! And below here is a closeup of the dresses and infinity scarf we modeled for you all. Hey, it's a tough job, but somebody's gotta do it!
We used The Staple Dress Pattern, available in our shop from April Rhodes. Alice, at left, is wearing one made with some Interweave Chambray from Robert Kaufman, and Becky, at right, is wearing a dress made from Anna Maria Horner's new Dowry line. My infinity scarf is a patchwork version of this Figuring the 8 Loop. It features this Marbled design as well as our own Solid in Azalea. We also backed it with our Minky in Azalea for a warm and cozy feel! (though, when I say mine, that's a bit of an untruth as my daughter has already commandeered that one for herself...)
And last but not least, to help round out your Radiant Orchid Stash, we are giving away this lovely FQ bundle to one lucky winner! Simply leave us a comment on this post for your chance to win! We'll announce the winner next Saturday January 18th here on our blog. Good luck!
Congratulations to Marci Girl - you've won our Radiant Orchid Bundle! We've sent you an email regarding your lovely win! Thank you all so much for your wonderful comments :)
