The Holidays were so busy and I was focused on so many other projects that my Kona Color Burst quilt top was in “half done” status for awhile. This weekend I powered through and did 2 blocks on Saturday and the final 6 blocks Sunday morning and sewed them all together. Finally done with the quilt top!
Then I ventured outside… It was “Feels like -11º” and very windy. I tried to get a shot of the quilt top on a serene white background – but instead you see my bootprints. You should have heard me yelling at the wind. These were the best shots I could get for now. I can’t wait until it is finished and I can try to get some better shots – and it might be warmer.
The pattern for the Color Burst Kona Color Card is made up of one square each of 289 Kona Solids.
I cleared the board and started from scratch, with one colorful square at a time. I have been wanting to make this pattern for awhile, and with 365 colors to play with, it seemed like the right time. I took all the colors and a few neutrals, and built from the center out.
To make this easy, order one of each of the following charm packs, precut by Robert Kaufman Fabrics:
Kona Cotton Pastel Colorstory CHS-692-85
Kona Cotton Bright Colorstory CHS-693-85
Kona Cotton Dark Colorstory CHS-694-85
Kona Cotton Neutral Colorstory CHS-695-85
Kona Cotton New Colors 2019 CHS-851-42
This pattern uses the majority of the colors, but just one of each. You will also receive a Bonus PDF on how I create my blocks, and my method for keeping them organized and sewing them together with the least amount of seams. And a new PDF with the charm pack color order and labels to print.
I made this with 5″ squares, for a finished size of 76 1/2″ x 76 1/2″.
