    Another green lover here. However, in looking through my stash I find I'm currently short on green. Time to restock.

    Green? Well in that case, I guess I don't need to buy any fabric in 2017, I'm covered!

    Now if it were Orange or Purple, I could go on a wild shopping spree. Oh who am I kidding....as long as there is shelf space, there's more room for any color fabric.

    Did I mention my hubby's favorite response to me when I complain about him dropping his clothes on the floor?

    "What's the problem? I put in on the biggest shelf in the house"

    But it's not really a grassy green. It's a green that has a yellow undertone. I'm on the fence about this one ... looks like they took left over yellow dye and added it to some green.

    LOL! Since green is my favorite color, I am always aware of which "side" it is - the yellow side or the blue side. I have noticed over the years that "the" shade of green that is popular swings back and forth between yellow green to blue green about every ten years. It is long overdue for blue green to be the "in" shade again, so this yellow green surprises me.

    In the 30's the green was more on the blue side, the 40's were more yellowish, 50's teal was popular, and who doesn't remember avocado in the 60's? Not a lot of green to be seen in the 70's, but the late 80's and 90's brought us "seafoam" and "evergreen/forest". After that, sage was all the rage, and seems to be continuing based on this choice.

    Get the pantone number and a swatch from the paint store. Then match your fabric.

    Actually the Pantone colors of the year for 2016 were baby pink and baby blue shades. Moda was the one with the near-bright yellow. I haven't seen any news on Moda's color of the year, so who knows what sort of fabric we're in for.

    There was an awful lot of emerald green being worn last year, or maybe 2 years ago. Not everyone can wear that color of green. This one may be the same way.
