It probably all started when I decided I loved all things Pantone. I love their simple, yet iconic, block of color with the name of the color.
Then at spring quilt market in May, thanks to Robert Kaufman, I ended up with not only the brand new Kona color card, but a charm pack with all the new Kona colors. And then the two things, Kona cottons and Pantone, kind of did a mash-up in my head. And a couple of weeks ago I finished "One in Every (Kona) Color." The first people to see the completed quilt were the fabulous people at Robert Kaufman. And currently, in my sewing room, my camera is on a tripod and I'm waiting for good light to take better pictures. But I couldn't wait to share it now that it is officially completed!
I love this quilt! It was fun to make, although it required a weekend where I spent hours printing out the names of the colors onto printer-friendly fabric (I'll be doing a review of my thoughts on Friday), checking and double checking to make sure the names were matched with the proper colors and that there were no typos.
In other news, I have also been working on My Granny is Amish. I ended up quilting it with no. 8 perle cotton using my sewing machine!
And I think this black fabric has grabbed every single piece of lint in a two-mile radius!
October is my month for the Stash Trad Bee, and because I seemingly can't get enough of granny squares, I chose that block again, although the great granny square--which has another round of colors, for the start of a Halloween quilt: Granny Says Boo! This is my sample block:Freshly Pieced:
