Wake Up To Kona Day One AND My Day

+ Two Extra Days (20th and 21st!)

What a great and amazing combination for a blog hop:


Amanda Murphy

Robert Kaufman Kona

Aurifil

AND

Madame Samm at Sew We Quilt!

Amanda Murphy's new book, Color Essentials, is just full of fun and creative ideas for quilts.

There are lots of really beautiful patterns.
Her directions are clear and precise.
The photos are gorgeous.
The ideas she shares are so helpful.
Whoa...am I gushing a little too much?
Well, so be it because I just loved her book!


In case you've never heard this from me before, I'm just awful at following patterns. With that little problem hanging over me, I took on the challenge and picked out one pattern from the book to follow exactly. Guess what...I did it!

~Iridescence~ 
"Make an easy, unique quilt using just one fat quarter bundle.
Change the background fabric to create a unique look."


I used my fat quarter bundle of Sunset Kona by Robert Kaufman...it was gorgeous! 
The colors are so vibrant and the purple in it was a wonderful bonus for me. 


Once my quilt top was finished, off it went to Quilted Works for them to do their beautiful work. 
They used a geometric design and a very light purple thread.

Tada!


The back of my Kona quilt

A view of the stitching

With some leftover pieces of fabric from the fat quarter bundle, I made a simple baby quilt and did some embroidery quilting on it using my machine's embroidery module. It was such a fun way to finish a quilt!

  2. It is midnight here, I turned off my sewing room lights to give my tired eyes some rest and thought, "Oh, I will just take a quick peek at the hop before sleep.'
    Now I am wide awake! Your colorful post certainly woke me up! I love the pattern that you chose. It looks great in both colorways. The quilting on your quilt is a very complimentary to the pattern.
    Your extra little quilt is so pretty and your quilting motifs add so much to this design.

    Now that I am awake ... time to go enjoy the other creations.

    Thanks, Carol, for cheering and getting this hop off to a wonderful start! ... :) Pat

  85. Carol you did a wonderful job. I love, love what you did. Your pictures are wonderful as well. Shows the quilt off well.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I think your two quilts came out GREAT! That first one--fresh and modern without being cold. Good job! I would have hesitated to put the purple in a baby quilt and yet, it makes the quilt so it could be gifted to male or female. I love purple, but I never thought it would still "pass" as masculine or neuteral.

    ReplyDelete
  87. An absolutely beautiful Kona quilt - the colors are gorgeous! I love your photograph and the contrast between the landscape and the rich quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  88. I love the embroidery on the second blanket, such a nice way to add a little something to a quilt.
