Kona Quilt

Hello Everyone,

When my long time customer, very talented quilter, and friend Sara came over the other day to drop off another quilt for quilting, she also brought along a surprise!!

Last time she was over, she did some shopping in my shop and purchased a ton of Kona Solids. She wanted to replicate a painting. She showed me a photo of it and we set out picking the right colors.


Here is the final result. Don't you just love it?


This was a lot of hard work and planning too, because she couldn't just strip piece it, she had to cut individual squares and then arrange them in the correct order before sewing them together.


She stitched in the ditch with a variegated thread and chose this square dot fabric for the backing. Both choices were perfect!!


Here she is, Sara and her quilt! She says she has it hanging in the perfect place in her home too. I am sure it looks fantastic and I can see her smiling every time she walks by it. I know that I would be!

If you are so inclined to make a quilt similar to Sara's quilt, just click here to see all the Kona Cotton Solids that I have in stock! New ones are being added this week!!

Also, please remember today all those who lost their lives in the 9/11 attacks.

Until Next Time...

A really gorgeous quilt! I don't even want to try to immagine the work, though :)

Wow! that is so funny because I saw the picture of that painting in the NY Times and cut it out to make as a quilt too.......now that I see it done I'm even more inspired! Nice job Sara.

Happy Sewing

That is a very interesting quilt. I am sure it took a long time on planning and piecing. It is worth it though.

Love Sara's quilt!

it is fab. I love working with kona. Some of the "new" fabric lines coming out have sub par fabric, IMO, it frays and feels like it has filler. I know the cost of cotton is up but it is frustrating. Kona is always lovely. I can count on that.
