Christa’s Giveaway New Kona Cotton Solid Bundle

How are you all coming on your Abacus Quilt Along? The best part of any group project is seeing how everyone interprets the pattern in their own colors and fabrics. In fact, I have an alternate colorway to share with you today. I call this colorway “Parfait,” using some of the new 2014 Kona Cotton colors with a white background. Isn’t it cheerful?

Thanks to my generous friends at Robert Kaufman, one of you will get to win this lovely bundle! It contains 1 fat quarter of the following colors shown in my sketch above: Heliotrope, Honeysuckle, Grellow, Limelight, Creamsicle, Niagra, Titanium and Nectarine. Plus enough white for the background and binding. Aren’t those fun colors?

Here’s another sketch of what the quilt would look like with the colors in a different arrangement. There’s enough fabric that you can play around and put them in any order you like! Isn’t half the fun of any project picking the fabric placement?

    The new Kona Colors are gorgeous, but picking just one is not possible. I love color! Thanks for the Giveaway and the chance to win.

    I love them all, but creamsicle is the favorite, and watermelon comes in second.These colors are all fabulous. Thanks Christa!

    Thanks for such a fantastic give-a-way. My favorite: Honeysuckle! It is so hard to choose since all the colors are so beautiful.

    I could use any of the new colors, because I love them all. I like the limestone color because I would like to explore using it for a background color for use with the more muted shades of Kona solids. I think this would let me have a quilt with a modern look that would blend in better than the black or white color ways.

    I could find a use for any of the new colors. I like limestone the best because I would like to use this as a possible background fabric for a modern quilt. This would allow me to use some of the more muted solids.

    I love all the Kona Colors. In the new category Niagara took my eye. It is a cheerful happy tone but also calming. This color will survive the ages in both modern and vintage quilts. A beautiful choice for both adults and children.

    The colors are all amazing. My favorites are the blue and purples, but Astral wins the gold medal. However, I can see all kinds of things do to with every color in the collection.

  8. Diane says:

    Love the ‘orangey’ colors but I think the Nectarine is my favorite. Would like to see what it looks like with the Bordeaux and Cobblestone. And good luck, Christa, with your newest adventure in fabric design!

    I love love Niagara, it’s a beautiful sky blue. We’ve been having Indian summer here. It was about 95 yesterday. I think all the colors are great though. I hope I win.

    Creamsicle drew my attention right away, and when I read the name, I knew it was the one for me. That color will “go” with everything from thirties to modern. Right now I’m working on one quilt in an autumn leaf palatte, and another with cream and mango batiks. Creamsicle is the one!
