Fabric, Kona Cottons, Quilt Designs

October 11th – Saffron

Today’s Kona Cotton color of the day is Saffron.

Saffron is a brown and yellowish color with hints of orange. It looks more orange than brown or yellow, but those colors are in there.

Saffron is a spice derived from the flower of the crocus sativus and it’s super crazy expensive. Because such a small part of the flower is used for this spice, it takes 75,000 flowers to create only 1 pound. Saffron is used as a spice, yellow food coloring and flavoring agent. My son-in-law likes to cook… a lot. And he’s pretty good at it, although he tends to be more critical of his cooking than anyone else, but truly, aren’t MOST artists? He loves to use saffron, but it is especially pricey.

So here is a little taste of Saffron for you, in the form of a quilt.
