Fuschia is one of my favorite colors.
I love it even more when paired with lime green and/or orange and/or cobalt blue. I’ve seen these wonderful color combinations several times in the last few days.
Here are some of the fantastic things I’ve found and can’t resist sharing with my captive audience of 12 here in blog world.

I love the pieced background, the oversized blocks and especially the idea of combining very modern color choices with a very traditional looking applique image.
Mod Pop, made by Leann and found on she can quilt (Leann’s blog). Quote: I am all done this huge Mod Pop! This king size quilt is 98″ x 91″, which is 8.2 feet tall by 7.6 feet wide. She is made from cottons in pink, orange and red, most but not all of them are Konas. The turquoise and royal blue chains are Essex linen. Julie from Distant Pickles designed this excellent pattern and it is available here. The colours for this quilt were inspired to a large degree by the Andy Warholportraits that use the turquoise and navy with aquas and blues. His images and colours are sort etched in my brain and they just felt like the right fit for this pattern. These colours are really hard to photograph, all I can say it that she is pretty bright in real life, sometimes I wonder if sunglasses are required.
Here is a look at the binding she used! Image from flickr.
This next one is fabulous even with little or no fuschia! I love the shapes and textures of this quilt, and I think the creator made excellent fabric choices.
As far as I can figure from the post, this quilt was made by Joanna. Her blog link is
