Quilt Project Runway: Color Trends

Color trends are a dichotomous lot.  They seem to diverge in different directions, with no rhyme or reason as to why they came about.  2009 will be no different, but here are the color predictions from Michael Miller Fabrics:
  • black & yellow color scheme (look for these in Vera Bradley handbags)
  • grey
  • orchid (a dull, medium, red-violet for all you Color Masters)
  • jeweltones in red, blue, and green

Why these colors?  They trickle down from Paris runways, and seep into fashion, magazines, and the ultimate arbiter of all things designer:  Target.  Really.  When you see Rubbermaid, Daytimers, and hangers at Target in trendy colors, you know those are what’s hot.

Here are some quilts from Michael Miller’s newest fabric lines:
