Kona Color of the Day: February 16 – February 20

More bright pinks to work with – who knew there would be SO many bright pinks to work with? I love them, but sometimes they were a challenge! But Sew What?! This week I threw in a sweet southern phrase, some sass, my first use of a variegated thread on MAKE, and the first appearance in a Fairy Tale series – love those pigs! Find these and more in the Kona Color of the Day category.

I finished the final 8 Chinese Zodiac designs and added them to the Etsy Constellations & Zodiac category – except for the Year of the Rat – that stays in the Kona Color of the Day category for now. They all use the same Kona Color and same silk ribbon wrap and Madeira metallic thread color, in case you want to display multiple years together!

Kona Color of the Day: February 6 – February 10

Oh I had fun making these! I love a Chubby Unicorn (Rhino), and that bright Carnation pink just screamed Lacy Skull to me! The pinks have been tricky for me. When trying to decide on a design I have to see if it goes orange or blue, and what intensity is it, how intense do I want the background to be… I am hoping it will become a little easier soon, but I have a feeling that every month is going to provide some sort of challenge. Here are the 5 from this batch – enjoy!

Kona Color of the Day: February 1 – February 5

Welcome to February! I made it through the first month and have started February with the Pinks. I find myself wandering through the day with “what goes with Punch, what would look good on Watermelon” in the back of my mind. Eventually I come up with something. This grouping includes a brand new Kona Color: Dragon Fruit, and my son said I have to put a dragon on it. So I did – a Fierce Dragon. The latest Kona Color of the Day images are below, and remember you can follow along with me on Instagram to see the Color of the Day on that day!

The first month is done – January is complete in a variety of rich purples. Do you have a favorite for this month? I don’t know that I could select just one, there are a few that I love, and my child is trying to claim most of them.

If there is a particular piece you are interested in, remember they are all listed on Etsy, and the links below are linked to the Kona Color of the Day Category. Hope you had a fantastic first month of the year. On to February!

Bounty Hunter Quilt: Row H

I have my first row completed for the Bounty Hunter quilt! I sewed together the 8 blocks in sets of two. I am waiting to finish the next row so I can sew those together in sets of 2 and groups of 4 – less seams overall to try to match up. I should have the second row done by the end of the week – if all goes as planned. Then only 6 more to go! There are a lot of tiny pieces and many colors, but I do one step at a time, and it is really fun to see it all come together!

Bounty Hunter Quilt

I don’t know if you have seen this on Instagram yet, but I am a pattern tester for this Bounty Hunter Quilt:

Bounty Hunter

Doesn’t this look amazing?! I am cutting the Kona colors as I go through each block and I just love how they play together. Here is a shot of my first three blocks – can you see where they fit?

Bounty Hunter Beginning

The bottom right corner. I am starting with the bottom row and working my way up. I will be posting my progress as I go along on Instagram, with some more updates here. The pattern is by Quilting Space Studio. They have several other ideas in the works so I am really excited! This pattern is made up of over 100 Kona Solids – I can’t wait to see this finished!
