One of the most eagerly awaited events for anyone who follows color is the announcement of the Pantone Color of the Year. The color chosen for 2024 is Peach Fuzz, a soft pale shade that the company hopes will evoke warmth and closeness for the coming year. Below are some of the PieceWork patterns I found in the library that use variations on the color.

An Ars Canusina Table Center Cloth

Using stem stitching in a layered effect with gradually shifting shades of color, this tablecloth is a lovely work of art based on Italian architecture from the Early Middle Ages.
Whatever craft style you express yourself in, I hope these projects and the color Peach Fuzz bring you inspiration and joy in 2024!
