Wake Up to Kona Solids!

Welcome to my little stop in the Wake Up to Kona Solids blog hop hosted by SewWeQuilt!

This hop is featuring quilts made ONLY with Kona solids and I thought this sounded like too much fun to pass up! If this is your first time visiting you can see My Quilts here and learn more about me in this post.

The inspiration and sponsors for the hop are Amanda Murphy‘s new book, Color Essentials, from CT publishing and these fabulous bundles of Kona solids by Robert Kaufman….Sunrise and Sunset(new to the market). Aurifil also has some yummy thread to match!


So here is my quilt, Goose on the Loose!


Goose on the Loose! 28 1/2″ x 32 1/2″

I used some left over Kona solid fat quarters from a Robert Kaufman Poseidon bundle.  I used to the blues in the bundle to make my Prism quilt.

For this one I used the shades of green and some white, Kona Snow. I threw in a little Kona melon for some pizazz:)


I did a vertical design for the quilting, to keep with the directional flow of the quilt.


I used this tutorial to do the binding by machine.


I pieced my leftovers on the bias to create my binding.


Pink and green is one of my favorite color combos!

Here is a list of all the great quilts you can check out between now and the 21st!
